LaLiga Santander Did so in 2015/16
Tright here are 10 matchdays remaining in LaLiga Santander, the final stretch of the season, and this is exactly where quite a few sides have their future determined, no matter whether that is reaching the Champions League or Europa League, or even saving themselves from relegation to LaLiga 1|two|three.
The numbers show that winning all 10 of these games is virtually not possible, although there is a single exception: Actual Madrid with Zinedine Zidane at the helm.
In the 2015/16 campaign, Zidane was in a position to lead his side to a outstanding 10 victories from 10, the only group to have ever accomplished so in LaLiga Santander.
The Frenchman has returned to Los Blancos soon after resigning final summer time and when winning the league would be small significantly less than a miracle, with Madrid 12 points behind leaders Barcelona, he has restored hope to a fanbase that has turn out to be disillusioned this season, in spite of getting won the final 3 Champions Leagues.
There are two sides who have come close to replicating the great finish that Zidane and Madrid attained in 2015/2016: Barcelona and Athletic Club.
The Blaugrana have closed out the season with nine wins and a draw on two occasions, in 1959/60 and 2009/10, while Athletic virtually did so with the exact same record 89 years ago, in 1929/30.
Huesca, Rayo Vallecano and Celta Vigo, the existing bottom 3 in LaLiga Santander, are banking on the final 10 matchdays to salvage their seasons.
The very best streak that Celta have had to finish a campaign has been with seven wins and 3 losses, a record attained in 1942/43 and 1947/48, and they would most surely sign for that if offered the chance this year.
Rayo, with Paco Jemez back in charge, can also hold onto their memories from the 2001/02 season. In that LaLiga Santander campaign, Los Franjirrojos have been saved soon after winning six and drawing 3 of their final 10 matches.
For Huesca, this is their debut season in the Spanish leading flight and for that reason there is no precedent for them to appear back on.
