The new season of European football is in full swing and at the first international break of the season, two teams in LaLiga stand out above all the English, German, French, Italian and Western clubs. Spain is different in two respects: Real. Madrid are the only team to have won all of their matches, while Burgos CF are the only team yet to concede a single goal.
Real Madrid: 100% record in LaLiga and in Europe
Real Madrid were one of the first teams to begin their new campaign, and they did so by continuing the momentum compared to the previous one. On 10 August, they played their first game of the season at the Olympic Stadium in Helsinki, winning 2–0 over Eintracht Frankfurt to lift their first title of the season: the European Super Cup.
In LaLiga Santander, Real Madrid had a difficult first match away from UD Almeria, but still managed to win. They then have two more important wins on the road, against RC Celta and RCD Espanyol, ahead of home successes against Real Betis and RCD Mallorca. Most recently, they got off to the perfect start, beating Atlético de Madrid in the Madrid Derby. With this impeccable record, the capital club ranks above LaLiga Santander, while they are the only team from the Premier League, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1 or the rest of Spain’s top league yet to hit the mark. drop a point.
As if their domestic record weren’t brilliant enough, Los Blancos also played and won two Champions League group stage games. In the first game, at Glasgow against Celtic, they won 3-0, before the second was at the Santiago Bernabéu when they beat RB Leipzig 2-0. So far, no team has managed to win a single point against the defending champions Spain.
There is a curious statistic about Real Madrid’s winning start. Despite having won all of their matches, Real Madrid have actually conceded a goal in all six of their league matches so far, although they have not conceded a single goal in their home matches. Europe, not the Super Cup or the Champions League. Winning all of their league matches despite conceding a goal emphasizes the outstanding attack of Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
Burgos CF: Unbreakable Wall
Burgos CF, meanwhile, has not conceded a single goal in the first six rounds of LaLiga SmartBank. That makes them the only club from the first or second divisions of Spain, England, Germany, France and Italy yet to have the ball in their own net.
Julian Calero, coach of Los Blanquinegros, has built a solid block thanks to his defensive knowledge, something that allows his team to compete with any opponent at LaLiga SmartBank, one of the most competitive leagues on the continent. The following line, led by
The central defense pairing of Grego Sierra and Aitor Cordoba, and the goalkeeper of José Antonio Carois the basis of the group’s success in this field.
Thanks to their good defensive performances, the team is theoretically unbeaten and they sit in sixth, having won two games – both 1-0, maximizing their scoring performance. – and got four goalless draws. This leaves them only four points behind the leading group. “Whether we belong there or not, we have the ability to compete with anyone and we will not bow down to any side,” Calero said, praising his team’s competitiveness. in a press conference.
Having gone 540 minutes so far without conceding a goal, Burgos CF has recorded the fourth-best start in this sense in the history of LaLiga SmartBank. That record belongs to Real Racing Club de Santander, a record they have held for 50 years.
