New Delhi: Real Madrid is the only team in major European leagues to have scored in every match after 20 games this season. Spanish giants have scored a staggering 68 goals so far, at a rate of 3.4 per game.

Chelsea in England, Wolfsburg in Germany, Benfica and Sporting Lisbon in Portugal have came close to achieving this feat, but Los Blancos remains the only team to do so.

Interestingly, Carlo Ancelotti's side has scored 37 of those at away games, with their biggest victory coming at Deportivo de la Coruna in a 8-2 thrashing. They have also scored five goals each against Elche, Levante, Athletico Bilbao and Rayo Vallecano.

And helping them break records is their super-star Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese has so far scored 28 times, followed by Karim Benzema with 11, Gareth Bale with 10 and James Rodriguez with seven.

The only times they have failed to scored more than once are against Atletico Madrid at home, in a 1-2 derby defeat and and against Valencia away, again in defeat by similar margin in Mestalla. Despite these setbacks, the reigning European champions are leading La Liga table with 51 points, one more than second place Barcelona and with one game in hand.

Their other defeat was against Real Sociedad in a high scoring game at San Sebastian in only the second match of the season.
