The 1996–1997 season was the Real Madrid C.F.'s 66th season in La Liga. This article shows statistics of the club's players in the 1996–1997 season. This was the first season since 1977-78 that Real Madrid would not compete in any European competition due to previous season's lowest position finish in 19 years.

Summary[edit]

For the first time since 1977-78 season that Real Madrid only played in the all domestic competitions. Real Madrid returned to domestic glory in the first season under Fabio Capello's reign. With new signings Predrag Mijatović and Davor Šuker were lethal partner to main striker Raúl González as well as Clarence Seedorf in the midfield sectors. Roberto Carlos, Carlos Secretário, Christian Panucci and Zé Roberto were also new signings in the defensive sector. But due to Carlos Secretário's lack of confidence such as lack of minutes playing after Panucci's arrival in January 1997 as well as infamous Real Betis incident at Santiago Bernabéu stadium, he was sold back to Porto in January 1998. Real Madrid conquered La Liga title on the last day of the season despite 4-0 loss against Celta Vigo but Real Madrid suffered earliest domestic cup exit against eventual winners Barcelona in the Round of 16 after 4-3 aggregate loss.
