Real Madrid hammered Granada 5-0 on Saturday, to extend their lead at the top of La Liga, while also equalling Barcelona’s record for Spanish clubs going unbeaten in all competitions.
Zinedine Zidane’s men had broken their own club record before Christmas, when they defeated Deportivo La Coruna 3-2.
They have now equalled Barcelona’s record which it set in the 2015/2016 season under Luis Enrique. Madrid will overtake their bitter rivals, if they don’t lose to Sevilla in the return leg of their Copa del Rey tie at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Thursday.
Juventus hold the European all-time record for an unbeaten run of 43 matches in all competitions in the 2011/2012 season, when Antonio Conte was in charge.
