Real Madrid extend record away El Clasico run

Real Madrid has extended their record run of scoring in away matches against their great rivals Barcelona.

Lucas Vazquez netted in the sixth minute of Wednesday’s Copa del Rey semi-final first leg at Barcelona, with Malcom scoring in the second half in an eventual 1-1 draw at Camp Nou.

It was Vazquez’s first El Clasico goal in his seventh appearance in the fixture.

With the Spain international’s goal, Real Madrid has extended their record for consecutive away matches at Barcelona with a goal, having now netted in 15 straight games and scoring a total of 26 times in those matches.

Sergio Ramos also grabbed a piece of history in Wednesday’s game as the 32-year-old became the joint record-holder for the most appearances in El Clasico in all competitions in the 21st century.

With his 40th El Clasico appearance, Ramos tied Barcelona legend Xavi in that category.
