Real Madrid equal Santos' 73 game scoring record

Real Madrid have equaled Santos' 73 game goalscoring record after victory at Real Sociedad.

With a goal from Borja Mayoral in the 19th minute against Real Sociedad, Real Madrid equalled the long-standing world record of most consecutive games scoring.

The team, under the stewardship of Zinedine Zidane, has now scored in 73 matches and this has only been done once before, by the great Brazilian side Santos, which featured one of the all-time greats, Pelé. Their run, from November 21 1961 through to August 15 1963, was made up of 52 wins, 14 draws and 7 defeats, scoring 245 goals and conceding 96.

Bayern Munich's European record of 63 consecutive games, set over seasons 2012/13 and 2013/14, was eclipsed some time ago.
