Abstract:Real Madrid facing challenge of a lifetime

Not since 1957/58 have Real Madrid won the Champions League and LaLiga double, meaning Los Blancos will have their work cut out for them if they are to achieve such an accomplishment.Luis Carniglia was the coach back then for Real and Paco Gento and Alfredo Di Stefano led the attack.On May 4th, 1958 Madrid won the league and later that month on the 27th they lifted the European Cup, now the Champions League.They had achieved the double just the year before in 1957, but it hasn't been replicated since that two year period.Since 1958, Los Blancos have won eight the top European competition an additional eight times, and 26 LaLigas, but, oddly enough, they haven't been able to do so in the same year.The current Real squad are on track to make history, not just in winning back-to-back Champions League, but also in winning what could be a memorable double.
