Real Madrid sets new El Clasico record

After three consecutive victories in El Clasico, Real Madrid are finally ahead of Barcelona in wins.

The Los Blancos have been lagging behind their great rivals for years.

Just a week before Zinedine Zidane returned to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu as head coach, Los Blancos had lost to Barcelona.

Barcelona had won against them in both the league and the Copa del Rey under Santiago Solari.

This took the Catalan side to 96 wins in 243 Clasicos with Real Madrid on 95.

Three matches later the balance is now 98-96 in Real Madrid’s favour.

This year’s two El Clasicos

The 2-1 win at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano on Saturday means Real Madrid have won both of this season’s fixtures.

This is the first time for Madrid to do this since the 2007/08 season under Bernd Schuster. 

Pep Guardiola then took charge at the Camp Nou and won the next five in a row.

Zidane’s side are currently on a run of three victories in football’s biggest club fixture.

To find the last time they did this you have to cast your mind back to the 1977/78 campaign.

The best-ever run of Real Madrid victories was between 1962 and 1965, when they won six in a row. 

Barcelona’s record came under Guardiola.
