Only Guardiola can outdo Real

Only one team in Europe has bettered Real Madrid's current run of results. Bayern Munich has tasted nothing but victory in its last seven games, going seven for seven (five in the Bundesliga and two in the Champions League).

Real Madrid has managed six wins and a draw, the latter against Juventus. Incidentally, the Italian team has also racked up an identical set of results.

Real Madrid averages 3.1 goals per game. Nobody else in Europe has surpassed the three-goal mark. Atlético stands on 2.65. The same applies in England, despite the teams having played two games less. Manchester City has scored 2.88, whilst Arsenal and Chelsea have not even managed 2, standing on 1.94.

Guardiola's Bayern side wins games, but cannot live up to the goalscoring prowess of Ancelotti's Real Madrid. It averages 2.47 goals a game thanks to its 47 goals – 32 in the Bundesliga and 15 in the Champions League. Another side with a fearsome attacking record is Borussia Dortmund with a total of 44 (35 + 9).

Wenger's Arsenal is enjoying a fine run of form and has produced six victories and one defeat, as have Benfica and Olympiacos. Barça had managed five wins in a row, but lost its last two games. A step ahead with five wins and two draws are PSG and Simeone's Atlético – whose brilliant season puts them amongst those with the best statistics.
