The Spanish La Liga is one of the most competitive and interesting football leagues in Europe. Some of the biggest names in world football have won the shirts of the teams that play in the Spanish La Liga including two of the world’s best footballers.
Records have been set and broken, while some records are still standing fixed. Here’s a list of records that may stand the test of time.
- Longest Goal Keeping run Without Conceding
Abel Resino Gómez or simply Abel Resino former Atlético Madrid goalkeeper holds this record after going 1,275 minutes without conceding a goal in the Spanish La Liga during the 1990/91 season. He spent 9 seasons there and his performance between the sticks earned him applause even from his opponent’s fans
This record will be very difficult to break because it continues to be rewritten every day by the same player. Athletic Bilbao’s Inaki Williams has currently played 224 matches consecutive as of now. He has not missed a La Liga game since 20th April 2016 and he is still going strong to date.
- Most Consecutive League Titles
This Prestigious record is held by no other club but Real Madrid. The Los Blancos have been able to achieve this feat twice winning the Liga title five times from 1961-1965 and 1986-1990. This record may be impossible to break as the Spanish competition is getting tougher day by day
- Most Consecutive league Home win without a loss
Real Madrid went over 8 years (from 17 February 1957 to 7 March 1965) or 121 matches in the Laliga without losing a game at home. Los Blancos dominated the LaLiga from 1950 till 1980 — winning the title 18 times. No wonder the record has stood for over 65 years. All the clubs playing in the top division are so competitive now that there are very few teams who can even manage to go undefeated in a single season — even at home.
- Longest Unbeaten Run ( Barcelona )
Barcelona holds the record for the longest unbeaten run in the Spanish La Liga with 43 which was set from 8 April 2017 to 13 May 2018. This was done when most of the footballing fans thought that Barcelona had little or much to offer during that particular frame of time.
It’s not surprising to say that Lionel Messi holds the record for the most career goals in the Spanish laliga. The Argentine is nothing but a football god, his tenacity, vision, skills, and dribbling have made him stand out among players of his peers as he has a total of 474 goals to himself. This record may be difficult to attain and may stand the test of time
