Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid have equalled or broken Barcelona’s unbeaten record of 39-games
Real Madrid equalled Barcelona’s Spanish record of 39 games unbeaten in all competitions with a comfortable 5-0 La Liga victory over Granada at the Bernabeu.
Isco hit a brace, with Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and Casemiro also on the scoresheet against struggling Granada as Madrid moved six points clear at the top of the table.
The “Los Blancos” will overtake their arch-rivals, Barcelona, if they do not lose to Sevilla in the second leg of their Copa del Rey tie at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Thursday, where they lead 3-0 after the first leg.
Madrid had overtaken their own club record before Christmas when a 3-2 win over Deportivo La Coruna marked their 35th game since they last lost.
