One of the big discussion points after Real Madrid‘s 2-0 loss to Real Sociedad on Sunday was the fact that there were so many empty seats at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, but it’s perhaps not surprising that fans aren’t turning up considering how few goals are being scored at home by Los Blancos this season.
There are a number of factors that contribute to attendance numbers, and one of them could be the fact that Real Madrid have netted just 13 goals in nine home LaLiga Santander fixtures in 2018/19.
Six of them were scored in the first two home matches against Getafe and Leganes, with just seven netted across the following seven.
It works out at one goal every 62 minutes and this is far behind the other giants of European football – as shown in the below graphic, which charts Real Madrid‘s home goals and goals per minute during Florentino Perez‘s second term and then home goals and goals per minute of other top sides in Europe.
In terms of goals scored at home in the league this season, Manchester City lead the way with 37.
As for minutes per goal, Real Madrid‘s Champions League opponents Ajax are delighting their supporters the most by netting one every 22.5 minutes for an average of four per home game.
Compared to previous Real Madrid sides, this record of one goal every 62 minutes doesn’t come close to matching what has gone before and is way behind the average of one goal every 21 minutes of the 2011/12 season, when Jose Mourinho was coach.
