Real Madrid have a penchant for late heroics during 40-match unbeaten run

Real Madrid made history on Thursday, earning a 3-3 draw vs. Sevilla in the Copa del Rey to go 40 matches unbeaten, breaking the record for most games unbeaten by a Spanish club, set at 39 by Barcelona.

Karim Benzema scored in the third minute of added time on Thursday to secure the record-breaking result, with Madrid having trailed 3-1 as late as the 82nd minute. The draw was the second time Zinedine Zidane's men fought back from a two-goal deficit. These sort of late heroics have been a hallmark of Los Blancos' record-breaking run.

With the help of ESPN Stats and Information, we detail four instances of Real Madrid scoring late to earn a win or a draw.

Game No. 12 | Aug. 9, 2016 vs. Sevilla | UEFA Super Cup

Down 2-1, Sergio Ramos pressed forward in Real Madrid's effort to find a tying goal. Lucas Vazquez lofted a cross and Ramos buried it to tie the game in the 93rd minute.
