The Real Madrid he needed this Monday, in the match he drew against Real Sociedad at Di Stéfano, finish off up to 20 times to get the goal that ultimately earned him the tie (1-1). According to Opta statistics, of these 20 shots, only two were on target.
It was certainly not the night of the Madrid strikers, who could not get a slice of the 13 corners that forced the team or the 17 crosses in play made during the 90 minutes of the game.
A domain, that of Real Madrid, unsuccessful and that it did not have its reflection either on the scoreboard or on occasions of great danger on the frame of Remiro, goalkeeper of the San Sebastian team.
With the French in the field, Madrid averages 1.78 goals per game; without it, production falls to 1.16 due to shock
Without a doubt, the absence of Benzema answers the question of why this alarming drought occurs. Without being able to serve as the only excuse, the data shows that in the absence of the Frenchman, whom Zidane will try to recover by all means for this Sunday’s game against Atlético at the Wanda, Madrid loses a lot of goal.
In the 28 games in which Karim has participated this season the white team has scored 50 goals, one 1.78 average per game. The figure, however, falls to 1.16 goals per game in the six games that Madrid have played without its ‘9’ headline, in which he has only been able to score seven goals.
Some figures that make clear the dependence that the merengue team has from Benzema and that Zidane will try to recover for Wanda. LaLiga is going.
