Luis Enrique has summed 31 matches without losing so far: 25 wins and 6 draws. Furthermore, the victory against Sporting (1-3) was the 7th consecutive win in La Liga, the best streak since he started coaching.

Tied with Ancelotti

With this 31-match record, the coach tied with Carlo Ancelotti, who managed to prevent Real Madrid from losing for the same number of matches in 2013-14. The Whites summed 18 La Liga matches, 8 Copa and 5 Champions League games unbeaten, until Tata Martino's Barça won them on March 23, 2014 at Santiago Bernabéu (3-4). Madrid almost stayed 5 months without losing.

The absolute record in La Liga

In La Liga, the next challenge is to beat Leo Beenhakker record, also Real Madrid coach. In the 1988-89 season, the Whites stayed 34 official matches without losing: 25 wins and 9 draws. In order to reach this number, they need to avoid a defeat against Las Palmas (away), Arsenal (in London) and Sevilla (at Camp Nou).
