Zidane makes history of unbeaten run

A 0-0 draw with Barcelona at Camp Nou  on Wednesday night has seen Zinedine Zidane become the first Real Madrid manager to go five games unbeaten at the venue, reports Gaol.

Across his past five matches in all competitions at the Catalans’ home ground, Zidane has drawn three and won two games to ensure his side have proven difficult visitors for Barcelona.

The two sides’ recent goalless draw was the first 0-0 result between the duo in all competitions since November 2002 - a run of 6235 days.

“I am very happy for the attitude. We played a great game, we just missed a goal,” Zidane said post-match.

It was also a record-breaking night all round for Real Madrid as Sergio Ramos also became the fixture’s most capped player as he started in his 43rd Clasico.
