Real Madrid finished out their La Liga campaign against Real Betis on Friday night with a relaxed and good-spirited atmosphere. It was contested, but tackles were not lying in and not a single yellow card was shown.
That in itself has brought about a new record. For the first time since 1984, Los Blancos have gone an entire season without receiving a red card, as pointed out by Sam Leveridge.

The record is likely anecdotal, although even more likely to irritate rival finals. Real Madrid are also the team to finish with the least yellow cards (76) – only Villarreal can equal that total, although they have a game to play against Barcelona.
The worst disciplinary record in La Liga belongs to Getafe, who have racked up 116 yellow cards and also managed 8 red cards this season. The latter is only equalled by Valencia, who have also suffered the same amount of sending offs but are two yellow cards short of Getafe’s total.
