Real Madrid bidding for scoring record


Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid are only two games away from equalling the club record of scoring in 41 consecutive matches.

Only Celta Vigo in Balaidos on Sunday, and Osasuna at the Estadio El Sadar next Saturday, February 11, are the obstacles to overcome.

If Los Blancos can score in both matches, the game in which they could set a new mark would be against Jose Callejon’s Napoli in the Champions League.

Real are the only team in the top five European leagues that has managed to score in every game that they have played this season (a total of 34).

The last match time that they failed to find the net was in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Manchester City.

The record

Up to three times the team have come close to shattering the record.

Jose Mourinho’s side almost set the new mark during season 11/12, and in 87/88 and 88/89 Leo Beenhakker came within a whisker.

The first time Real managed such a high number of consecutive scoring games came when Santiago Bernabeu was president, between the seasons of 51/52 and 52/53.

Zidane’s team have already managed to beat the streak of games without losing, and now seem ready to continue making history.
