Mexico's Liga MX witnessed a world record this Tuesday (27th August), when Veracruz lost 5-0 to Queretaro for the seventh round of the Apertura and extended their winless run to 33 games.
The Tiburones Rojos (Red Sharks) broke the tie with England's Derby County, which held the previous mark with 32, set in the 2007-08 season.
Veracruz streak began on August 25th, 2018 and, from that date, have lost 25 times and drawn eight matches.
Five managers have coached the team that only avoided relegation last season after paying a $6 million fine, a rule in Mexico established two years ago.
Enrique Meza, the 77-year old veteran head coach, had previously won four league titles and was Mexico´s national head coach.
He was unable to avoid the mark and announced his resignation at a news conference at the following match.
