Real Madrid fail to break La Liga wins record

Real Madrid fail to break La Liga wins record

Real Madrid missed out on a record-breaking 17th consecutive La Liga victory as they drew with Villarreal. The hosts fell behind just before the break when Sergio Ramos used his hand to block a shot in the box and Bruno Soriano chipped in from the spot.

Ramos made amends soon after the restart, heading in from a corner. Zinedine Zidane’s side put the visitors under concerted pressure throughout the second half, but Villarreal held on to deny Real the outright record.

Instead they will have to share the record of 16 straight wins set by Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona side in the 2010-11 season. However a point ensures they remain top of La Liga, four points ahead of Barcelona, who could only draw 1-1 with Atletico Madrid.
