A draw with Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night sealed Zinedine Zidane's new achievement of having 34 unbeaten club matches.  

This equals the all-time record of Real Madrid set by Leo Beenhakker during the 1988 - 1989 season. Beenhakker's squad during that season won 25 and had 9 draws from their games, just as the 2016 squad did. The 2016 side had scored more goals though with 95 and only 32 conceded, while Beenhakker's scored 86 and 32 conceded.  

The Real Madrid boss wants to praise the team and the fans as well and goes on to say "The players have to be congratulated. They're the ones out on the pitch, it's them who run, fight and dig in. We also have to thank the fans, who always get behind the team and support us. They've got to take some credit for what the team is achieving. 

If Real Madrid is undefeated this weekend against Deportivo La Coruna, Zidane will match Luis Enqrique's current record of 39 unbeaten matches. And if they do, Zidane will set another record for the club, but unmatched this time.  

Zidane adds that "I don't think it's very important for me to leave my mark. What interests me the most is to continue with this great run that we're on. The idea is to continue because we are doing the right things, but there's a long way to go."  

After Deportivo La Coruna, Real Madrid will head off to Japan for the Club World Cup.
