Spain. Real Madrid recovered their ‘rightful’ place – champions after few lean years, but hardly impressive. Tough team, yet a far cry from the glorious team of the 50s and early 60s.
Some established stars, like Grosso and Zoco; some younger strong talent, like Amancio and Santillana. Strong team, but no more than that. Mostly for Spanish consumption and perhaps the team at the lowest point by Real standards. The 1970s were dark years for the club.
