Zidane reaches his 200th match as Real Madrid coach

Zinedine Zidane will take charge of his 200th match in charge of Real Madrid on Thursday, joining just Miguel Munoz and Vicente del Bosque as the coaches to have reached the milestone with Los Blancos.

After winning his 10th title with Los Merengues back in January, the French coach can boast a ratio of winning a trophy every 20 matches during his time as senior coach.

That is quite the return and it’s clear just why Zidane’s coaching career in the Spanish capital will be remembered as fondly as his playing one.

In the 199 matches he has taken thus far, Zidane has 131 wins, 42 draws and 26 defeats with a grand total of 486 goals scored and 208 against.

This equates to a rough win percentage of 66 percent.

Zidane’s return to the club last spring, though, hasn’t had the same impact on the team in terms of results as his first arrival did, and the statistics prove as much.

After his departure at the end of the 2017/18 season he had a win percentage of 70 percent, however since arriving back in March of 2019 he has only got a win percentage of 54 percent.

He has dominated the Champions League and has yet to taste elimination in the knockout stage of the tournament as a coach, however the second leg against Manchester City could change all that.

His record in Europe is 25 wins in 39 matches, which is a 64 percent win rate, and it’s one of the two competitions in which his numbers remain positive.

LaLiga Santander hasn’t been kind to the French coach since his return and, with 11 matches remaining, we will see whether Zidane can improve on these numbers once more.
