Real Madrid break Barcelona’s record points haul

What a stunning season for Jose Mourinho and everyone connected to Real Madrid. Not only did they put the brakes on their Catalan rivals and stop them winning La Liga four years in a row, they set a new points record by beating Majorca on the final day 4-1. This put Madrid on 100 points, one better than the 99 recorded by Guardiola’s Barcelona two years ago.

Remarkably, the home and away record is identical. 16 wins, two draws and just a single defeat both at the Bernabeu and on their travels is phenomenal. Real scored 121 goals and let in just 32. Christiano was top scorer with 46 league goals. Gonzalo Higuain with 22, and Karim Benzema with 21 also made great contributions.

Ozil, Di Maria, Pepe, Alonso and Ramos were all fantastic and Casillas the captain was immense in goal, as usual. Mourinho was always entertaining and he is already planning for next season. It remains to be seen if there will be much activity in the transfer market this summer. Jose may wait to see if anyone catches his eye during 2012.

What is for sure is that Barcelona will find it very difficult to recapture this title from a brilliant Real Madrid.
