Carlo Ancelotti and Real Madrid appear to have hit the jackpot at this juncture. Take one look at their results column, provided here by WhoScored.com, and what do you see...win, win, win, win....
An incredible run of collective team form has seen Los Blancos shrug a couple of early season disappointments against Real Sociedad and Atletico Madrid to ride roughshod over every opponent since.
Best in Europe
Even a much-lauded Barcelona side were no match for Ancelotti's all-conquering team, and one that was sans Gareth Bale it must be said.
There can't be any team in Europe's top leagues with a current record to compare. One of the Italian's old teams Chelsea perhaps come closest and even the machine that is Juventus have lost in European competition. Cristiano Ronaldo, who else, has spearheaded the charge and his goals-to-games ratio at present is other-worldly. Frankly, we've never seen anything like it.
But to send all of the kudos the way of the Portuguese would be wrong.

Tears were shed when pass-master Xabi Alonso left for pastures new, but his replacement Toni Kroos has been instrumental in Los Blancos success to this point.
His pinpoint accuracy of pass is at least as good as, if not better than, Alonso's and at this juncture he is streets ahead of anyone else in the league in terms of passes attempted and completed. Gareth Bale continues to delight in the Spanish capital and it's been a long time since anyone mentioned a €100m spend.
"BBC" in great form
The other member of the "BBC," Karim Benzema has also weighed in with enough goals and assists to keep the management happy. For one who is so often overlooked, the Frenchman's contribution has been notable.
The only player who hasn't perhaps yet hit the heights, understandably, is James Rodriguez. New country, new team and new culture is bound to have an effect on a players form, but whilst the Colombian hasn't quite excelled as he did for his country in Brazil, he's been far from poor overall in Spain.
Defensively sound, there is barely a weakness in a side that looked nailed on for success if they continue in the same vain.
