first_imgZidane is suffering the absence of Portuguese. He seemed to sense what was going to happen without him on the team when he left while Cristiano. But He came back to save Madrid and has encountered a Crude reality: in his first stage on the bench his team was left unmarked in 9 of 149 games (spectacular). In this second stage, his team has not scored in 11 of 47 meetings (mediocre). This season.Returning to the present, the statistics reveal the impotence in attack suffered by the team. The first consequence is that tends to abuse the lateral centers as an urgent (precipitated) solution. Before Levante, Marcelo and Carvajal put 33 centers. It is the fourth best record of the season. And the funny thing is that There is a relationship inversely proportional to the number of centers and victories achieved. In the top 5 of this classification there is no victory: Celta (2-2), Athletic (0-0), Real Sociedad (3-4), Levante (yesterday, 1-0) and Atlético in Supercopa (0-0 ).Jovic, on safari. Most of the data that speak of the Madrid’s goal drought refers to the absence of Cristiano, the man of 450 goals in 438 games. Madrid have not been able to score in 21 of the 93 official matches (23%) they have played since the Portuguese left. With Cristiano on the field, on the other hand, he was left unmarked only in 36 of 438 official matches (8%). Without Cristiano there is no paradise.On the last day there was a Curious sorpaso. Before Madrid was played it was the historical top scorer of the competition. After her and Barça al Eibar’s five goals, the Barcelona Go to the whites. He has 6,151 goals scored by 6,150 of the white team. And the name of Cristiano reappears. When the Portuguese left Madrid was 42 goals ahead. That advantage has vanished in 62 games without CR7. And those are, 42 points, just those that Cristiano has marked since he left.center_img The top scorer of this Madrid is Benzema (18). And behind him only a string of midfielders appears among which sneaks Bouquets (7). They are Rodrygo (7), Kroos Y Modric (5) and Casemiro (4). Jovic, the forward that Madrid signed as reinforcement for 60 million, He has only been able to do two goals. The day of the match against Levante, in the morning, I was visiting the Safari Park, photographing with mouflon, because Zidane had left him out of the list, like Bale, because he had had a stomach flu which prevented him from performing a training of the week.The double season, 16-17, Madrid averaged 2.8 goals per game, almost three. In this campaign It is clearly below scoring somewhat per game. Is needing to perform 6.8 shots to score each goal. Last season, even without Cristiano, he needed 6.9. With the Portuguese he never needed more than six except in his first season. Without Cristiano, there is no paradise.last_img read more
