Zinedine Zidane is one match away from coaching Real Madrid to a new unbeaten record.On Wednesday, Madrid equaled a club record of 34 games without a loss set in 1989 under coach Leo Beenhakker when it drew 2-2 with Borussia Dortmund.Last season, when Real Madrid president Florentino Perez tapped Zidane to take over a struggling team, the decision smelled of desperation.Zidane was promoted from coaching its reserve team to take over a side that was lunging from one embarrassing episode to the next.The team hasn't lost since, recovering to claim its 11th European Cup and almost nip Barcelona for the Spanish league crown, before roaring out to a six-point lead of la Liga this season.If Zidane sets the new club mark, his next goal would be the milestone held by Barcelona under counterpart Luis Enrique, whose 39-game unbeaten run was ended by Madrid last April.
