Sergio Ramos sets sights on triple success

Sergio Ramos believes Real Madrid can claim Champions League, La Liga and Copa del Rey glory this season.

Los Blancos have already enjoyed a successful first half of the campaign as they claimed Club World Cup glory by beating Kashima Antlers 4-2 after extra time in December.

That victory followed up Real’s Champions League success during the 2015-16 campaign, and Ramos is now hoping his side can achieve a bit of history this season, as they have never claimed European glory, as well as La Liga and Copa del Rey success in the same season.

“As always we aspire to win the three competitions; the league, Champions League and the Copa del Rey, along with other titles that may come our way,” the centre-back said.

Barcelona are the only Spanish side to have previously achieved that feat, doing so on two occasions in 2008-09 and 2014-15, but Ramos insists his side are more than capable of replicating that accomplishment.

“From that base we will try to play good football and give everything for the badge,” he added. “Then everything will be easier when it comes to achieving success.”

Real are currently three points clear at the top of the La Liga standings, while they will face Napoli in the Last 16 of the Champions League and Sevilla at the same stage of the Copa del Rey.

Zinedine Zidane’s men are available at 1.44 to secure the La Liga title this season, while they are priced at 5.50 to claim European success.
