Madrid Press: The best attack in the world

Madrid Press: The best attack in the world


Madrid got their week off to a great last last night, dispatching Levante 5-0 at Cuitat de Valencia.

And the papers this morning are full of praise for the side, who now head into a tough few days ahead as they face Liverpool and then Barcelona in next weekend’s Clasico.

Marca hails the team’s attacking threat on its front page this morning, saying the 10-time European Cup winners have the best attack in the world. Los Blancos have already scored 30 goals in just eight league fixtures, and have scored five or more on three occasions already this season.

At a rate of four goals a game, the side is on course to smash the current La Liga record of 121 goals in a season – held by Real when they won the league in 2011/12.

AS looks at the goals per minutes ratio of the forwards, and in Ronaldo and Chicharito, who both netted last night, Real have two of the most lethal strikers in world football. The Portuguese has scored a phenomenal 15 goals in 630 minutes of La Liga action this season, meaning he scores a goal every 42 minutes.

The on-loan Mexican forward scored his third for the club in just 144 minutes of play –  meaning he gets a goal every 48 minutes.
