Real Madrid’s Five European Cups (1956-60) : Luck? Circumstances?


Intelligent question raised in The Guardian.

Was it because there were no other real challengers from across the globe?

The Superga Air Disaster destroyed any hope Torino could have had going into the early years of the European Cup, the Hungarian Revolution ended any chance Honved had of having a competitive chance as players like Kocsis and Puskas were forced to leave (Puskas incidentally to Madrid), and those in Britain are obviously familiar with what happened to Manchester United‘s young team. By the time all of these teams dissolved, Real had only won 2 of their 5.
