Illarra means winning guarantee

Asier Illarramendi had a hand in the victory over Real Sociedad as he was on the staring eleven and played the full 90 minutes. Whites defeated the Basque team (4-1), a result that kept his flawless record in the 2014/15 season alive.

The Mutriku-born midfielder has won all 23 of the games he has played: 14 in La Liga, 5 in the Champions League, 1 in the Club World Cup, 1 in the European Super Cup and 2 in the Copa del Rey.

Taking his whole Real Madrid career into account, Illarra has not lost a competitive match since 11 May 2014. He joined the Whites in the summer of 2013 and has since then made 72 appearances, scoring three times.
