How many penalty goals for Madrid in the last season and a half?

I ask because this is not something u can easily find on google.
I'll give you something to start , Madrid have been awarded with 10 penalties in laliga and there are still some rounds to go .

#Pespect
another good one... statistics show that everytime madrid are given a penalty, uncle perez buys the ref a new sportscar... thats 10 sportcars in la liga alone this season and there are still some rounds to go.

BTW that has to be a fact not statistics
Doesn't take long for Madrid and Ronaldo police to come here....

^ it actually took me 6 hours :) :) :)
You're losing your touch Dagaza. madrid's Phantom "like" ninjas are also not giving enough likes to your posts. :-p

Not sure if Leo Messi or Ninja..

Curious what you guys think of picking up Coutinho for 40m to take over for Iniesta? I think it would be better than lets say Hazard for 80m or Pogba for XXm.
Wouldnt be a bad signing thats for sure. He could find a spot for us for sure the way he plays in my eyes. I would certainly not turn him
+2
40 mil? Are you serious?
+4
They wouldnt let him go 40 mil thats for sure
^Wut?

Right now he's not worth €40m yet, for sure. He's no Isco... yet.
Atleast give him a season or 2 to prove himself at the top level...He is surely a good player, but to be able to make a big jump you have got to do more than that
+1
Exactly. Let's get Bas Dost too cause he's been scoring braces every game....you can't just get a player based on half a season of performances.
+1
I know hes not worth 40 mil, but to Liverpool he is worth more. They know how good he can be. Why would let a guy with a ceiling as high as him go for cheaper than 40 mil anyway?
I'd rather invest that money into cloning Messi.
+1
Lets pretend we don't know Denis Suarez and Halilović and also rafinah best comes when he play in iniesta position
+2
Seriously? Coutinho?

As I typed his name on my phone while writing this post my phone kept autocorrecting it to chalkboard. My phone is right. A chalkboard would be more useful to us than Coutinho.
I said 40m cause he is worth more than that to Liverpool. I love Rafinha but I think he plays much better on the right. I think Coutinho has been awesome the last season and half and by the time we can sign him he will be hitting his best. We can save ourselves what we would pay for a Hazard/Pogba and get that ugly sponsor off our jerseys.
@Dekk

that's the thing though. We WON'T sign hazard/pogba
If Sterling is valued around 50 million by Madrid then Coutinho is at least 50 million. Dont judge the dude before you watch him play a full game. Medfilders are He is on fire.
+1
Why would we need coutinho when our academy loaded with great mid fielders,that doesn't make any sense because we don't need him even if he available for free.and if cesc available for 33 m,then I would say his worth not more than 20 m.

@ king,I often watch Liverpool games,he is too inconsistent to consider him for anything .
+1
Yeah he is too inconsistent and you guys don't need him. Go after Hazard or somebody else.

Leave Coutinho to us :P
Wait...Madrid does not value Sterlling as 50mil....
Real Madrid has been award the same amount of Penalties in La Liga as Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, and Valencia combined. They have double as much penalties as the next team (Sevilla).

Just throwing that out there.
+7
No favoritism though. They are just expert divers
+12
They have earned most of those penalties but I guess they have been a bit lucky compared to us when it comes to referees giving penalties when there really is a legit penalty appeal. And Real have had many penalties gifted to them by the opponent with ridiculous fouls and handballs, so annoying :/ I still can't forgive that cordoba volleyball player!
+1
@Maaza

stop making excuses dude.. Madrid have obviously been diving their way to the top of the table lol
+8
It doesnt bother me so much the amount of penalties they have, but they fact they are often the first goal of the game. It changes the game completely and they can easily bag 3 or 4 more when the other team opens up to try to score.
In my many years of watching football I have never seen so many penalties being awarded. If you look up statistics 7-8 pKS for the season is average for a high scoring team. Barca usually has less pks than madrid but we only lag by 2-3 pks in a season historically. This year its off the charts.
..
Please, please no dropping points before El Clasico. I beg!
+4
Real Madrid would be super happy to get atleast single point from this game.Now it's within reach Of our hand,hope it goes well..
+2
Yellow submarine !!!!!!!

There lead is shorten to two points , now I hope we don't drop any points till the el clasio
+1
Woohoo! R. Madrid dropped points. :)

Anybody notice that Carvajal committed the exact same type of foul in the penalty area (putting arms around a player's waist) that led to Madrid's penalty?

At least the ref didn't give the Chicharito incident a penalty.
+2
This means that Barca can win the league by winning the El Clasico. Not the worst place in the world to be in.
Joel Campbell got fouled in the first half. He stumbled but kept going instead of collapsing like Bale or cr7 would and ref just didn't bother.
+3
Terry Gibson brought up a good point. Carvajal let go, whereas Bailey had his arms tied around him the whole time. Defenders usually do hold on but let go soon like Carvajal, it would have been extremely soft to give a penalty.
+1
Moni,

It may or it may not be. Considering how close Barca and Real are this season, it's not that implausible.
JRaty i wont be surprised athletico makes a great come back and steal the title again ...anything can happen... its footy at the end f the day ...
Madrid dropping points is great but it doesn't mean anything if we can't capitalize on it. Every time we've had a chance to gain some ground, we fail.
INB4 we keep dropping points like last season and Atletico wins again.
@Hikmat

Atleti has no chance, imo. We lost the league last year because Atleti were always ahead. This time, we're the ones who are ahead by, I'd say at this point in the season, a comfortable margin.
Btw our boy tello scored a hatrick vs sporting , though I would love to see him back bit we already have way to many wide players ( including the one coming from B team ) , it will be nice of Porto wants to keep him , can be a part of deal for danilio
Honestly tho how do you want us to respect you with your best player in the world claim when 1/3 of your goals come from penalties.(IMHO the easiest goals to score)
+10
Lets be real here, the easiest goal to score was that Header Miss Messi had against City
+4
Andres, while I respect your opinion, nothing new is being said here. It'll just serve to antagonize people without really sparking any meaningful discussion. There has to be better ways of venting, right?
+1
My point is when is it enough?

when is it a valid claim that ronaldo should get the pichichi award when like I said 1/3 of his goals have been from the spot? if come end of the season and his goal scoring is the same pattern does he really deserve the award? can we REALLY argue that he is the best player this way? he is a great player and IMO so many penaties taken is going to stain his great career and in the long run people will remember why we made fun of so many penalties.

I dont get involved in the Ronaldo/Messi dick measuring contest we have in here but all I'm saying is that while I definitely agree ronaldo had a better year than Messi last year. I find it hard to accept he is superior to Messi as a player. this is just one example
@Andres

I don't mind Ronaldo getting the "highest goal scorer". When you score, you should be rewarded for it and in his defence, this genuinely was a penalty.

Having said that, Ronaldo will *NEVER* be a better player than Messi. He only won the Ballon d'Or because 1. Messi didn't win the WC and 2. Madrid won the CL. Had Atleti won, it would have been down to Messi, yet again.

And remember that the voting was RE-OPENED right after Messi's injury and Ronaldo won by a measly 2.9% of the votes the year before.

He's an immense player but Messi belongs in a different galaxy altogether.
Also this ties in with a great topic/discussion we had here a couple of weeks ago:

When other teams play barca/madrid they have to adjust their tactics and even their philosophies to stand a chance. This is the answer to why so many players get carded and sent off when ever they play agaisnt us and why Madrid has so many penatly claims at the end of every game.

Barca play a possession based game when if you havent ever played football is hard to understand how frustrating it is to NOT have the ball so when a player is in front of you and shows you the slightest chance of having the ball, whether it means its a foul or not, you take it! which is why when you look into it the red card and most of yellow have been in the second half when the other team is desperate.

Madrid have generally a very fast paced system whether in possession(all out attack) or not in possession (counter attack). this generally leads defenders to commit intentional strategical fouls to control the tempo of the game but then the defenders freak when they reach the 18 because they know that with the slightest touch a player going that fast will lose balance and a penalty will most likely be called.
@Andres

To add to your second post, what a stupid penalty to concede on Villareal's part. The guy wrestled RONALDO, out of all people, to the ground. Does he not know who Ronaldo is? What's he's infamous for? He would have gone down with the slightest of wind gusts, let alone that.
St1or,

He actually couldve gone down on another penalty from the same player! they had arms locked and Bailly was struggling to keep pace with ronaldo. respectable that ronaldo didnt and he instead had the confidence to shake him off and try for goal.

Unfortunate for him that Asenjo had an amazing game.
Andres: This fast paced system concept getting penalties is nonsense. I'm sorry but there's no other way to describe it. Winning 12 penalties in half a season is an anomaly and if you actually analyze them 5 were just not penalties. You can say this is just one of those lucky seasons for madrid which have never happened for any team in the history of the sport but that would be giving way too much benefit of doubt. winning 7-8 pKS in a season is normal for an attack minded team. If madrid maintain the same record in the 2nd half of the season for pks they will set a new world record for pks in a single season.

And a player going at that pace will go down at the slightest touch only if he's looking to go down. I'm sorry I've been watching football for 22 years and this type of reasoning doesn't fly for me.
+1
F4f, it just is how football is played now days...unfortunately but even coaches tell their player that in the box. i know for a fact that coaches encourage the players to fall in the 18 when they feel impeded.

it unfortunately is a part of the game and me plays as a CB can tell you all my coaches tell me to just to be very careful with fouls inside the box bc players will look for a foul. even my brother who is a semi-professional has told me this. its unfortunately a part of the game and when a player going fast is bumped he will lose balance and usually fall the ref will always give the foul. and specially with a player with trickery such as ronaldo its hard but a defenders best choice is just to close his angle and pressure him to pass the ball.
lol i dont think anyone is ASKING you to respect him... nor do they need you to... the type of player he is, titles he's won, records he's broken and the amount of time in the day the opposition spend talking about him, you already do respect him lol...

if ur trying to say you dont respect him as a footballer because he has scored a few penalties this season (which for some reason seems to drive most of you mad lol) then sorry man... aint nu no one could do to help u
+2
""" He only won the Ballon d'Or because 1. Messi didn't win the WC and 2. Madrid won the CL. Had Atleti won, it would have been down to Messi, yet again.""

Madrid winning the CL had nothing to do with Ronaldo right?? he scored most number of goals in CL..that doesn't matter i guess...he just won Ballon D or coz Messi played bad...wow..that's some logic...what kind of absurd bias is this..
