Real Madrid chase 20th consecutive victory

New Delhi: Real Madrid will play struggling Almeria in a La Liga clash tonight and a win in Andalusia will give Carlo Ancelotti's side their 20th successive win in all competitions.

Madrid have already set a Spanish record of 19 straight wins after beating Ludogorets in the Champions League on Tuesday. Their greatest rivals, Barcelona have previously held the record with 18 wins during a trophy-laden reign under Pep Guardiola in 2005-2006.

However, the world record for most wins, 25 in succession, is set by Brazilian side Coritiba in 2011. Los Blancos can take a realistic hit on that record with an super star-cast which includes the likes of Crisstiano Ronaldo who himself is on a superb form and Gareth Bale.

After the Almeria fixture, they will take part in Club World Cup in Morocco where they are a direct entrant to the semi-final stage. And they are expected to win the tournament.

Before the competitive football starts next year, the Europeans champions will play Italian giants AC Milan in a club friendly on December 30.

Madrid are leading Spanish league table with 36 points, two points ahead of Barcelona after the end of round 14.
