Brazilian Women’s Side Corinthians Equal World Record For Consecutive Wins

Brazilian side Corinthians have become the first professional women’s team to equal the world record for the number of consecutive wins by a top-flight side.

They beat Ferroviaria 4-0 at the weekend to claim their 27th win in all competitions.

This now puts them level with the Welsh Premier League’s The New Saints (TNS) who held the record.

Dutch Eredivisie champions Ajax held the record for the most consecutive wins with 26 for 44 years before TNS broke it December 2016, but Corinthians can eclipse that record by beating Sao Jose at home on Wednesday.

The Serie A1 leaders have scored 95 goals in their winning run since 26 March, conceding only eight.

They have scored five or more goals in six of those matches, including a 9-0 win over Sao Francisco last month.
