Real Madrid’s worrying statistics show why their attack has reached new lows this season

Zinedine Zidane-Real Madrid

Los Blancos have endured a turbulent campaign in La Liga.

Real Madrid has been fluctuating in La Liga this season, which could see them lose out on the title.

Los Blancos held to a draw against Real Sociedad last weekend and a win would have taken them above Barcelona, who are currently second in the table.

It was a lacklustre display from the defending champions, especially in the attack where they garnered worrying stats.

Madrid registered 20 shots on target out of which five were on target – two of them found the woodwork.

It has been the story of the season for Zinedine Zidane’s side as they average 1.63 goals per game, the lowest among the clubs who are in the last 16 of the Champions League alongside Lazio and Sevilla. Furthermore, they hardly enjoyed high-scoring games, which sheds light on their attacking struggles.

There were days when Madrid dominated on all facets especially the attack – say 2011/12 season in which they averaged three goals per game – but all those heydays are looking a far cry at the moment.

Cristiano Ronaldo‘s departure to Juventus in 2018 has had a sounding effect on Los Blancos as they have failed to fill his void repeatedly.

Real Madrid’s No. 9 Karim Benzema continues to be the biggest hope in attack but the Frenchman often gets stranded due to the lack of support from his teammates.

Madrid are planning for a summer revamp with many big names on the wishlist. It remains to be seen whether the new Galacticos would help the Spanish capital club bring back the glory days.
