Real Madrid edging closer to the world record
Real Madrid are edging closer to Santos’ world record for most consecutive goals scored record.
Marco Asensio’s stunning opener for Real Madrid ensured that the club’s astonishing scoring run continued, making it 68 games in a row. Santos’ record stands at 74.
The record was set when Pelé graced the Brazilian club. Santos went on to register 51 victories, 14 draws and just nine defeats.
68 – Real Madrid have scored in their last 68 games in all comps, the longest ever run by a team from the top 5 European leagues. Infallible

The primary difference between the two records is that while Real have scored a whooping 186 goals, Santos notched up an astonishing 245.
Los Blancos have already broken the European record when they scored in 62 consecutive matches last season. Zinedine Zidane’s men now have their sight set on the world record.
