After winning the UEFA Champions’ League, La Liga, Copa Del Rey, FIFA Club World Cup Championships, UEFA Super Cup and the Supercopa Espana *breathe*, it’s only natural that Real Madrid smashed a few records along the way, no?
Finishing the La Liga season in emphatic fashion, winning 35, drawing twice and losing once, Real Madrid were able to break Benfica’s record of most consecutive wins in a European league, extending the total of 29 wins in a row to 33.
Evidently, 35 wins is the highest total La Liga has ever seen, surpassing 32 wins set by Real Madrid in 2011/2012 and Barcelona in 2012/2013.
Los Blancos registered the most points in La Liga history this season with 107, seven more points than the total achieved by them in 2011/2012 and Barcelona the following season.
Not only is it a La Liga record, but the 107 points achieved by Real Madrid also managed to oust the European record of most points, the 103 set by Celtic in the 2001/2002 Scottish Premiership season.
Never before has the Spanish top flight seen a team win so many away games as Real Madrid’s 17 this season, as they beat Barcelona’s record of 12 consecutive away wins with a new total of 16 away wins in a row.
On their way to the La Liga title, Los Merengues also overtook their own record set by Jose Mourinho’s 2011/2012 team by scoring 128 goals this season, seven more than three seasons ago, as Madrid also set the highest goal difference ever with 111.
