Real Madrid Set Club Record 35-game Unbeaten Run Against Deportivo La Coruna


Real Madrid set a club record of 35 games unbeaten in all competitions with a late rally for a 3-2 win against Deportivo on Saturday.

Madrid had equalled the record with a 2-2 draw against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday that saw the holders only qualify for the knockout stages of the competition as runners-up in Group F.

The record of 34 games unbeaten was set by Leo Beenhakker during the 1988-89 campaign when they won the Primera Division title, only losing once in 38 games.
Zidane’s side broke Carlo Ancelotti’s record of 32 games unbeaten with a 6-1 Copa del Rey win against Cultural Leonesa earlier this month.

However, the Primera Division record for matches unbeaten is held by Barcelona (39 games), set during the 2015-16 campaign, while Juventus hold the European record for their unbeaten run of 43 matches when current Chelsea manager Antonio Conte was in charge back in 2011-12.
Real’s last defeat was 2-0 at Wolfsburg in the Champions League on April 6 last season and since then they have recorded 24 victories and nine draws in all competitions, while scoring 94 goals and conceding just 31.
