Real Madrid Break 116-year-old Record

Real Madrid set a new club record for the longest goal drought in their history, before Marcelo came to their rescue by scoring 18 minutes later.

The Spanish champions were tailing 2-0 at home to Levante, when the record was broken in the 55 minutes. That meant, Los Blancos had failed to score in 464 minutes of football.

It was a record that had been held since April 1985, as the European giants simply could not find the net.

Real Madrid may be attempting to defend their Champions League title, but domestically it is a different story.

Their losing streak now extends to five games, having last won one month ago against Espanyol.

But at least they have managed to end their goal drought which was the longest in their 116 years of existence.
