Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos produced another moment of late drama by powering home a stoppage time winner to beat Deportivo la Coruna 3-2 as the European champions set a new club record of 35 games without defeat in all competitions.

Two goals in two minutes from Joselu just after the hour mark looked set to end Real’s unbeaten streak stretching back to April after Alvaro Morata’s opener.

However, even without the rested Cristiano Ronaldo, Real maintained their six-point La Liga lead as Mariano Diaz equalised six minutes from time before Ramos’s late intervention.

Zinedine Zidane’s men have now surpassed Real’s previous record mark of 34 games unbeaten from the 1988/89 season under Dutch coach Leo Beenhakker.
