Though Zidane managed to win La Liga, taking advantage of Barcelona's abundance of woes, there still seems to be somewhat of an uncertain feeling at the Bernabeu.
There are fans who are convinced Real's success was more as a result of Barcelona's failures. Lionel Messi has been vocal about the fact his side aren't performing to their usual standards.
Real capitalized on that as Zidane's men managed to capture league glory with a respectable 87 points, five more than their El Clasico rivals, who, at times, looked like a mid-table La Liga side.
But it's in the Champions League where Real usually put on their most dazzling displays. Zidane won three titles in a row with Los Blancos between 2016 and 2018, seemingly riding off into the sunset after finding out Cristiano Ronaldo would be leaving the club.
His comeback last season caused a flicker of controversy and came off the back of Real's damaging 4-1 loss at home to Ajax in the Champions League. Zidane was almost given a clean slate. Their league form had already been sub-par and they finished the season third.
