At Real Madrid, Jose Mourinho holds the record for most goals scored in a La Liga season with 121 in 2011/12.

While he had Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema at his disposal, that's an incredible accomplishment considering it was during a time that Barcelona were labelled as one of the best teams of all-time under Pep Guardiola.

According to our calculations, Los Blancos scored 475 goals in three seasons under the Special One in all competitions.
