What is the record for a team being awarded a penalty in consecutive soccer matches?

Leicester City FC currently have 5 in a row, all being converted by the same person, and have 8 for the season.

I think the record you gave there could be the answer. I asked the question on the Guardian knowledge section and no one could give me an answer. So five awarded in a row could be the answer. – RoB Mar 13 '14 at 17:03
Should be in different games?? according to a newpaper in argentina (the newspaper is a good one) we have a team with 6 penalties in 5 matches, and the record is holded by another team with 7 penalties (I'm trying to look for in how many games) – gbianchi Mar 13 '14 at 18:19
@gbianchi bear in mind that "6 in 5 matches" does not imply they were consecutive: there might still be a match without penalties in the middle. – o0'. Mar 19 '14 at 12:06
@Lohoris They were in consecutives matches..… link is in spanish... – gbianchi Mar 19 '14 at 13:30
@gbianchi So 6 in 5 matches seems to be the record? You should put it as the answer below if it seems legitimate – RoB Mar 24 '14 at 11:36

According to this on line newspaper (that has his corresponding real version), the record is holded by a team with 7 penalties (but it doesn't said in how many matches).

But it has info about this team, Talleres de cordoba, who in 1952 has 6 penalties in 5 consecutives matches.
