Today we remember a classic, or rather, of. Because it was two leagues Real Madrid lost in Santa Cruz de Tenerife the early 90 and also he lost in a way that even the most macabre (and culé) the writers could have written.


The first was in the season 1991-1992. The Real Madrid He had led the league for almost the entire campaign something, but nevertheless, He had not stopped the white club had dismissed Radomir Antic with the team in first place in the conference 19, just after winning the CD Tenerife at Santiago Bernabeu. According to the president, Ramon Mendoza, the Merengues was not playing well so we had to change coach.

Leo Beenhakker It was the replacement for the Serbian and, interestingly, He debuted with a tie Bernabéu against him Cádiz (1-1). The Dutch coach had already led to Real Madrid in three seasons and had won three league, so she had all the credit in the world.

He came the last day of that season 1991-1992 and Madrid leading the table with a point ahead of the FC Barcelona I had to win the Athletic Club de Bilbao and hope the Tenerife do them the favor of defeating his rival.

The cules, They did their part and came to rest with a 2-0 (which would become final) with doublet Stoichkov. Meanwhile, the Real Madrid expired 1-2 with goals from Iron Y Hagi (Quique Estebaranz shortened distances for local).


Nothing presaged the tragedy that was coming to Real Madrid but in a second Pate disastrous, First Ricardo Rocha own goal and Pier taking advantage of a criminal transfer of Sanchis a Buyo, They managed to turn the score, giving the club League, tinerfeños celebrating goals as their own goals, logically.

Much speculation and is still speculating on a premium alleged the Barça players of Tenerife, They not are playing anything in that game since they were already saved.

The blow was very hard for the merengue group that did not make him any grace that return the whims of fate in store one Tenerife-Real Madrid on the last day of the following season 1992-1993. To top, Whites again came to the island as a leader and depending on himself to be champion if he could win.

Ramon Mendoza, white president, tried to reset the minds of his players for the trip to the island was different and not repeat things that could negatively influence the expedition, but the play could not get worse.


Template, divided into two blocks, He flew to Tenerife Two small charter but one of them had problems right out. The aircraft air conditioning did not work so the players had to withstand a temperature of 50 degrees at times. The aircraft had to return to Madrid and finally back to Tenerife so the trip ended up being almost 14 hours, something that did not benefit at all players, like is logic.

Meanwhile, Barca Cruyff again have a game at the Camp Nou against another Basque team, this time the Real society, which would defeat (He did for 1-0 another goal Stoickkov) and again he had to wait for a defeat in Madrid Heliodoro Rodríguez López.

This time, the set tinerfeño, directed by Jorge Valdano, Yes played a lot in this game as if victory would achieve qualify to play UEFA Cup for the first time in its history.

It soon became clear that the locals were willing to give everything and in a great first half, canaries managed two goals (Dertycia Y Chano), which would end up being definitive.

Recurring nightmare. The Real Madrid, with Benito Floro on the bench, He fell back into the damn island and a new league lost almost calcada to previous, benefited out FC Barcelona again. further, the Tenerife He achieved a historic qualification to compete in Europe deservedly.
