Marco Asensio’s stunning opener for Real Madridensured that the club’s astonishing scoring run continued, making it 68 games in a row in which they have found the net, closing in on the record of 74.
The current record was set by Santos, during footballing legend Pele’s time at the Brazilian side, during which they picked up 51 victories, 14 draws and just nine defeats.
In six fewer matches, Real have already matched Santos’ tally of wins during their record-breaking streak, with 12 draws and five defeats making up the 68.
The main difference between the two records is that while Madrid have scored an impressive 186 goals, the side led by Pele notched up an astonishing 245.
Real Madrid broke the European record last season when they reached 62 consecutive matches, but now have their sights set on the world record as well.
