Stat pack: Madrid score 5,500th La Liga goal


While Real Madrid may not win as much silverware they would have liked this year, and will have to surrender the title to Barcelona, the Spanish giants have continued to set La Liga records.

And when former Spurs player Luka Modric netted in Real’s 6-2 win over Malaga on Wednesday evening, it marked the Madrid’s 5,500th goal in La Liga since it was formed 82 years ago – the first side to reach that figure.

The only other ever-presents in La Liga, Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao have scored 5,452 and 4,406 goals respectively.

In addition to scoring the most goals in La Liga history, Los Blancos have also racked up the most wins, (1,532) and points (4,018).

This season’s tally of 95 goals, with three games still remaining, has only been bettered on three occasions – 1989/1990 (107 goals), 2009/2010 (102 goals) and 2010/11 (121 goals).
