Real Madrid on hot scoring streak

At an average of over three goals per game, Real Madrid have been simply unstoppable in hitting the back of the net in 2016/17, sitting on a run of 28-straight games in which they’ve scored.

Only Benfica, with 29, can beat Los Merengues’ run across the top European leagues and even then the Portuguese giants have only managed 69 strikes to Real’s impressive tally of 86.

What’s more, when taking into account the backend of last season, Zinedine Zidane’s side haven’t failed to score since their Champions League semi-final first leg with Manchester City.

That puts this current Real side, unbeaten in 39 games, just eight matches away from Jose Mourinho’s 2011/12 best of scoring in 41 consecutive outings, a tally achieved by Blancos sides in 1951-53 and 1987-89.

Throughout the current season, not even Juventus, Chelsea, or Bayern Munich can match Madrid’s streak; the Italian, English and German leaders failing to net in two matches just as Monaco have.

The closest side to Benfica and Real’s imperiousness in front of goal are Ajax, who only missed the target on a single occasion this campaign – a 1-0 loss away to Twente.
