Penalties punish Madrid

With 7, it is the LaLiga team that has been whistled the most, equaled with Betis. He has only had two in favor. Atlético is the one with the best difference from the championship with +5.


For any neophyte who has just landed in our League, explaining that Real Madrid is one of the 20 Primera teams that has the worst penalty ratio for and against would create an attack of disbelief. It would seem unthinkable and inexplicable. But that's how it is. The numbers don't lie. After 20 games played, Madrid have been awarded only two penalties in favor (only Cádiz, with none yet, and Huesca, with one, have had worse luck than the whites), while against Zidane's Madrid it They have burned with seven maximum penalties (the most, only equaled by Betis) .

The situation has worsened after the Clásico played at the Camp Nou on October 24. Madrid took the game forward with a great victory (1-3), with an important turning point at 1-2, after a penalty by Lenglet against Sergio Ramos. The VAR told Martínez Munuera to review the action when a grab was contemplated, which was finally punished as a penalty. Koeman, after the game, complained harshly and said that VAR always hurt Barça. If he wanted to change the trend, he was completely right. The Dutchman should be congratulated because the numbers have been brutal since then ...

Since then and more than three months have passed, Madrid have not been awarded a single penalty in favor. And no less than eight against (7 in the League and one in the Super Cup, against Athletic). At the Mestalla, three penalties came the same afternoon, an unusual event that has never happened with any of the greats of Spanish football. In that same stretch of time, Barça have not been awarded a penalty against (I insist, for 7 for Madrid!) And five in favor (for none for the whites) .

Atleti, current leader, is the most benefited in the penalty ratio (+5), equaled by Alavés and beating Real Sociedad by one and Barça and Villarreal by two. Madrid, rub your eyes, is the bottom of this table with a time of -5. In the club offices they do not understand how this came to be.
