Real Madrid Surpass Barca, Set Record Of 40 Games Unbeaten Run 

Real Madrid has set a new Spanish record after overtaking Barcelona’s record of unbeaten run in its 3-3 draw against Sevilla in the Copa del Rey on Thursday,all thanks to Karim Benzema’a last gasp effort which saw Zinedine Zidane’s side reach the 40-game mark without defeat.
They are now clear on their own at the top of that particular Spanish roll of honour, having edged ahead of their eternal rivals from Camp Nou.
Barcelona went 39 games unbeaten between October 2015 and March 2016, as they swept to La Liga and Copa del Rey crowns with 32 victories and seven draws during that run, before Real saw the end with a 2-1 Clasico victory.
Zidane’s side’s  run is slightly less impressive than Barca’s in terms of games won and goals scored, with 30 wins and 10 stalemates played out.
Barca also conceded just 23 goals in 39 games, while Real have been breached 39 times in their record run.
Madrid are , however, now the pick of the Spanish crop and remain on course for multiple major honours this season – having progressed to the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey on Thursday while also sitting top of the La Liga standings and through to the last 16 of the Champions League.
