Real Madrid extend their scoring streak to 50 games
After a 3-0 victory over Alavés on Sunday at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, Real Madrid have now scored in 50 consecutive fixtures across all competitions.
Zinedine Zidane’s men did not particularly have a comfortable afternoon despite the scoreline suggesting otherwise. Karim Benzema scored the first goal at 31st minute amidst claims for an offside.
Alavés wasted numerous good chances for an equaliser, with couple of Deyverson’s headers going wide of the post and Édgar Méndez missing the target from a close distance after being left completely unmarked. However, Isco and Nacho’s late goals sealed the victory and ensured that Madrid stay at the top of the La Liga table.
Real Madrid have been in a good goal-scoring form in this season, with 74 goals scored in 28 La Liga matches and a total of 127 goals in 45 games across all competitions.
The last team to not concede a goal against the Los Blancos were Manchester City in the first leg of Champions League semi-final last season. Since then, which is almost a year ago, Real Madrid have netted atleast 1 goal in every game they have played.
This phenomenal streak is the best ever scoring run registered by a La Liga club, and the men in white will be aiming to extend this amazing run of form.
