Real Madrid is just three games away from breaking Brazilian football team's record of scoring goals in 73 official consecutive matches. 

With Pelé in their ranks, Santos were on target in 73 games ranging from November 21 1916 through to August 15 1963. They recorded 52 wins, 14 draws and 7 defeats in the process bagging 245 goals and conceding 96.

Real Madrid is hot on their trails with goals in 70 consecutive matches.

It could be another record to place under the Spanish team's belt according to Guinness World Records:

1) Most wins of the football (soccer) European Cup / Champions League (team) with 12 wins

2) Most expensive football transfer with Gareth Bale at $132.9 million from Manchester United

3) Christian Ronaldo alone holds the following: Most goals in a UEFA Champions League season by an individual (17), Most FIFA World Player of the Year awards (3) and Most Liked Person On Facebook (Male), Most followed athlete on Twitter (with 37,831,159 followers as of 15 September 2015) and Most hat-tricks in a La Liga career (25)
