Luis Enrique’s Barcelona were the previous record holders of Spain’s all-time unbeaten record with 39 games, something Real Madrid equalled in their game against Granada, but their Copa del Rey comeback against Sevilla means that record has now extended to 40 games.
The last defeat for Los Blancos came on 6 April 2016 as they lost against Wolfsburg in the quarter-final of the Champions League; their 40-game unbeaten streak began three days after this fixture as Real Madrid beat Eibar 4-0.
Since this win, Zinedine Zidane’s team have won 31 games and drawn nine, also winning the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.
During this time, 22 players have scored 115 goals while only conceding 39; Cristiano Ronaldo has the most goals with 26, followed by Karim Benzema with 14 and Gareth Bale with 11.
Among the scorers in the run was Enzo, son of Zidane, who scored in the Copa del Rey against Cultural Leonesa.
The great achievement of Real Madrid is that they have continued their winning streak across five competitions: the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup, the FIFA Club World Cup, the Copa del Rey, and La Liga.
