With the league title still on the line, Real Madrid faces one more challenge when they host Los Blaugranas on Sunday: keeping their unbeaten run in La Liga intact.
Since Zidane's arrival to the dugout, Los Blancos have played 26 league games at the Bernabeu, winning 21, drawing four and losing against Atlético Madrid. Since that defeat, Real Madrid will have racked up 421 days without losing a league game at home. In fact, that game was one of the few in which Zidane's men weren't able to find the back of the net.

During that run, Real Madrid's players have scored 61 goals. On the other hand, their goalkeepers have conceded 18 times, giving a proper hint about the balance Zidane has imprinted to his squad.
Their widest gap between them and their opponents during this streak came when they defeated Celta with a 7-1 scoreline, while the highest amount of goals they conceded in a single game came this season, when Los Blancos drew 3-3 against Las Palmas. Los Blancos have kept 8 clean sheets since February 27, 2016 while playing at the Bernabeu.
Facing a brilliant Blaugrana attack won't be easy for Real Madrid's depleted defense, but will Messi and Suárez be able to put an end to Los Blancos' streak at home?
