Real Madrid breaks passing record for Leganes victory

Real Madrid broke a club passing record for victory over Leganes on Saturday.

Los Blancos made 798 successful passes against Leganes, a feat they have never achieved since Opta started collecting data.

Only once, in the Club World Cup final against Kashima - which went to extra time - had Real Madrid tried more passes than against Leganes.

882 attempts were made against the Japanese side, compared to 869 against the Pepineros, with a 91.82 percent success rate in their last match.

After two and a half LaLiga Santander rounds, Real Madrid lead the passing statistics with 1,505, just ahead of Barcelona who have 1,470.

Julen Lopetegui's men are also ahead in terms of completed passes as well, at 90.76 percent to 87.89 percent.
