On that note, let us have a look at 5 memorable Real Madrid moments during the 2010s decade.
#1 First team to collect the 100 points in a Liga season
In their 81st consecutive season in the Spanish top-flight, Madrid won their 1st Liga title in 4 years since winning their 31st in 2007-08, breaking a plethora of records along the way.
Madrid broke the record for most goals in a Liga season (99) set by Barcelona in 2009-10 by becoming the first team in competition history to breach the 100 point barrier. By scoring 121 league goals during the season, Madrid broke their own record (107 goals) set in the 1989-90 season. Cristiano Ronaldo (46 goals) produced the most prolific Liga scoring season by a Madrid player, a year after becoming the first player in the Liga to score 40 goals in a season. However, the Portugal captain's efforts were upstaged by Lionel Messi whose 50 goals made him the first player across the Top 5 leagues to score that many during a league season.
