Real Madrid's record-breaking defence


NEWS | 11/07/2020 | Rodrigo Salamanca

The team's 19 clean sheets, five of which have come in consecutive games, equals the highest number of in LaLiga shutouts in the club's history.
Real Madrid continue to maintain their excellent defensive form and recorded yet another clean sheet against Alavés. Since the competition's return, the team has conceded just twice in eight games and have registered shutouts in each of the last five matchdays (against Mallorca, Espanyol, Getafe, Athletic and Alavés).
This streak sees the madridista defence establish itself as the best in LaLiga. With 35 rounds of games gone, Zinedine Zidane's charges have prevented the opposition from scoring 19 times and lead the way in these standings, ahead of 
Atlético Madrid (15). This tally also equals the club's all-time record, matching the 19 goals conceded in the 1986/87 and 1987/88 seasons.
Meanest defence
Madrid boast the division's meanest backline, having been breached on 21 occasions. This figure represent an all-time club record in LaLiga with 35 games played. Zidane's men previously beat the previous record of 22 goals conceded at this same stage of the 1987/88 campaign. Should the team keep this form up, the Whites will record the lowest per-game average of goals conceded in a LaLiga season, given that they currently lie level with the 0.6 goals per game recorded at the end of the 1964/65 campaign.
