Real Madrid hit 70 consecutive scoring games against Valencia
Rapidly rising young star Marco Asensio scored both of Los Blancos' goals in the draw at the Santiago Bernabéu on Sunday and kept up the incredible streak.
There may have been disappointment around the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu on Sunday night in Madrid as points were dropped but there was still some positives to come out of the game. Los Blancos' rising star Marco Asensio scored two fantastic goals and the first of those, a strike from the edge of the area, took the team's scoring streak to an incredible 70 matches.
Scoring continues in 2017/18 for Real Madrid
After the summer break and the pre-season preparations, Zinedine Zidane has overseen victories in the European Super Cup, the two-legs of the Spanish Super Cup and then opened their defence of LaLiga with a 3-0 victory away to Deportivo La Coruña. Ahead of the first game in front of their own fans, Sergio Ramos and Marcelo were presented with the LaLiga Santander winners' trophy for last season.
Asensio strikes again
It didn't take long for the 21-year-old talent to give the home support something to sing about. Just 10 minutes into the game and he let rip with his left foot from the edge of the area, something that is quickly becoming a trademark strike. Not only did that give the side a great start, it was the goal that meant Real Madrid extended their record scoring streak to 70 games.
It's a long way back to that European evening in April 2016 when Manchester when City held Zidane's side to a 0-0 draw. Since then they haven't looked back and, despite having Cristiano Ronaldo scoring around a quarter of the goals, they have shared the spoils around much of what has proved to be a squad of depth.
Madrid's scoring lists grow
Asensio's second goal against Valencia, a great hit from a distant free kick, was the 193rd scored in this record-breaking run which is broken down as follows:
Champions League 38
Copa del Rey 22
Club World Cup 6
European Super Cup 5
Spanish Super Cup 5
Madrid have now eclipsed Bayern Munich's previously held record of 61 games which was set during the seasons 2012/13 and 2013/14.
