Season overviewEdit

Pre-seasonEdit

"La Décima" winning coach Carlo Ancelotti was sacked on 25 May 2015, after failing to guide the club to a major trophy the previous season.[1] He was then replaced by Rafael Benítez on 3 June 2015.[2]

Brazilian duo Casemiro and Danilo were bought from Porto for a fee of €7.5 million and €31.5 million respectively. Both signed long-term deals with the club, with Casemiro returning after Real Madrid exercised their buy-back clause option on the player.[3] Spanish wingers Marco Asensio and Lucas Vázquez also joined the club, while Sami Khedira signed for Juventus after his contract was not renewed by the club.[4] Javier Hernández soon departed back to Manchester United after Madrid did not make his season-long loan from the last campaign permanent.

The contracts of Dani Carvajal, Marcelo and Sergio Ramos were renewed for another six years and were set to expire in the summer of 2020.[5][6][7] Pepe extended his contract until 2017.[8] Casemiro's contract was extended to 2021.[9]

Iker Casillas left the club on 11 July 2015 and was transferred to Porto after 15 years with Los Blancos.[10][11] Kiko Casilla was signed as the replacement on 17 July 2015.[12]

The schedule of the season was announced on 14 July 2015.[13]

On 18 August 2015, Mateo Kovačić was signed from Internazionale,[14] while Marco Asensio was loaned to Espanyol.[15]

SeptemberEdit

Cristiano Ronaldo scored five goals and had an assist for Benzema in a 6–0 away win at Espanyol.[21] With the five goals, Ronaldo set his Spanish league goal tally to 230 goals in 203 games, surpassing Raúl's record of 228 goals in 550 games for Real Madrid in La Liga, becoming the all-time top scorer for Real Madrid in the Spanish league.[22][23]
