La Liga records that may not be broken for a very long time

  1. Longest period of not conceding by a goalkeeper (1275 minutes):

It was in the 1990-91 season that Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Abel Resino made this incredible record. He has immensely sharp reflexes which earned him the nickname El Gato meaning ‘The Cat’. His incredible performances helped him achieve this feat before Luis Enrique scored and ended this superb run. Given the goal scoring abilities of players these days, it is unlikely that the record will be broken.

  1. Most La Liga appearances (629):

Andoni Zubizarreta is the holder of this record. Andoni made a remarkable 629 appearances in the La liga. In his famous career in Spain, Andoni spent six years at Athletic Bilbao, eight years at Barcelona and four years at Valencia. He was also an important member of the Spanish national team then. The six time La liga winner is going to hold this record for a long while as he is followed by the retired Raul Gonzales and the late Eusebio with 550 and 543 appearances respectively.

  1. Most number of goals in a single game (7):

The record is jointly held by two players wiz Agustin Sauto Arana and Laszlo Kubala. Agustin scored seven goals against Barcelona in 1931 when Athletic Bilbao recorded a thumping 12-1 win over the Catalan club. Kubala on the other hand made the record playing for Barcelona when Sporting de Gijon were beaten 9-0 twenty years after Agustin had set the record. In the current scenario, the best we have seen is five goals scored and it looks likely that seven goals will be scored by a single player any soon.

  1. Longest unbeatable run at home (121):

Real Madrid have always been a dominant force in Spain and it was no different in the 1950s and 1960s. Madrid brutally dominated the Spanish league from 1950 to 1980 and in the process went on to create this terrific record of going unbeaten at home for 121 matches. The record was achieved in eight years. i.e. from 1957 to 1965 and still remains one of the toughest records to beat.

  1. Most league goals in Spain (398 and going on strongly):

There is no doubt as to who must be holding this record. Yes, it is held by none other than the great Argentine Lionel Messi. The Barcelona man has been a sensation ever since he was introduced in Spain and to the entire football world. His contribution for Barcelona has been immense and in the process the Argentine has scored 398 goals in the league. Cristiano Ronaldo scored 311 goals before he went to play for Juventus in Italy.
