Real Madrid keep getting better year after year. Back in 2018 they managed their highest number of wins in a calendar year, with 67, and with this Sunday’s Clásico yet to come in 2019, they’ve already set a new record of 68 after the impressive victory at Panathinaikos. They also managed 63 in 2014 and 62 in 2013.
The year about to come to an end is sure to go down in the club’s history. Added to their two titles (League and Super Cup), Real Madrid have now hit this new milestone of 68 wins, spread across: 37 in the League (one more than last year); 27 in the Euroleague; 2 in the Copa del Rey and another 2 in the Super Cup. In total: 68 wins in 84 games. After the clash at Palau, it will also become the year in which they have played the most matches, at 85.
In terms of the calendar year, the current run of 11 successive wins in the Euroleague is the third-highest in the club’s history in this competition after the 13 they managed in 2018 and 2013. In the League they’ve managed 17 consecutive victories, behind only the 29 recorded in 2013.
