Is Ramos A Weak-Link In Real Madrid Defence??

Despite being on hand time and time again to claw Real Madrid out of trouble with late goals, Sergio Ramos’ statistics with a defensive focus this season are ringing alarm bells at the Santiago Bernabeu club.

Real Madrid have played 24 times in La Liga (a total of 2.160 minutes playing time) with Zidane’s side shipping 25 goals in the current league campaign.

From this  2.160 playing time, Sergio Ramos has been on the field of play for 1.422 minutes and in that time Zidane’s men have shipped 21 goals (one every 68 minutes). In the 738 minutes that Ramos has been absent in Laliga, Madrid have only conceded four times (one goal per 185 minutes).Related image

Three clean sheets with Ramos

Ramos has played in 16 league games and missed eight due to injury, Madrid have ended a game without conceding on three occasions when Ramos has featured: the season debut at Anoeta (0-3), against Espanyol in Cornellà (0-2) and once again against Real Scoeddad at the Bernabeu in a 3-0 win over “Los Txuriurdin”.

It may be unfair to single him out and there is a lot he adds to the dynamic that is difficult to measure; his leadership and penchant for dramatic late goals are both invaluable.

However, Zidane has noted that the team’s defensive issues are far worse statistically when the captain is present and this isn’t sustainable for anyone in the long-term.
