Schalke hosts Hoffenheim have to win on Saturday in order not to reach the Bundesliga record for most games without a win of 31 games, which Tasmania Berlin set in the 1965/66 season.
The newly promoted Derby set several records in the 2007-08 Premier League, including the lowest score of just 11 out of 38 games. The Rams’ only league win this season came in their sixth game against Newcastle United. However, they could not secure another win and were relegated in March.
Sporting set several records in the 1997/98 La Liga season, including the longest winless run of 24 games, although this spanned two seasons. They finished last in the top Spanish league with 13 points in La Liga, despite having won at least two games after finally ending the series on February 8, 1998. Like Derby, they were relegated in March and became the first La Liga to seal their fate before April.
Ancona couldn’t win a single Serie A game between September 2003 and April 2004, despite being in their 28-game run Had at least seven draws without a win. They collected 13 points throughout the season, which appropriately led to bankruptcy and relegation to the Italian fourth division. Their run corresponds to that of Varese, whose « performance » in 28 games without a win was arguably even more impressive when it was played in a league with 16 teams in 1971-72 in a season with 30 games. The club from the north of Milan, near the shores of Lake Maggiore, went through almost the entire season without a win before breaking the duck in the penultimate round of the games. Needless to say, they were done below.
Arles-Avignon « enjoyed » a single season in France’s top game in 2010/11. They lost their first eight games in Ligue 1 and finally recorded their first win in early November. However, a miserable series of 23 games followed without costing another win. When they won again, they were already relegated. Indeed, their fate was sealed in record time, with seven games left in the campaign and they finished 15 points behind the table. In 2015 they fell to the amateur ranks and are now in the regional leagues.
Other – Although Scottish team Fort William is a far cry from Europe’s top leagues, they have been in 73 games without a win in all competitions called « Britain’s worst professional football team ». The Highland League team ended 2019 for more than 700 days without success with a North of Scotland Cup triumph over Nairn County. In the 2018/19 season, Fort William finished last in the table with minus seven points after deducting nine points and conceded 245 goals in 34 games.
