• Real Madrid. Carvajal and Ramos, protagonists

On the road of Real Madrid towards the reconquest of the League, solvency is gaining more prominence than forcefulness. He threw the second in the first two duels back to the competition, against Eibar and Betis , but since then the white team has become more attached to the conviction that, whatever happens, they will get the games ahead. Getafe's visit on Thursday was paradigmatic of this more effective than overwhelming version of Madrid. An internship by Carvajal, an innocent penalty by Olivera and everything was on track to take advantage of Barça's draw against Atlético. It remained to transform it, yes, but for that was Sergio Ramos, a certainty not so unsuspected.

Stigmatized for years by that launch into the clouds in the 2012 Champions League semifinal run against Bayern , the white captain has been uncovered since Cristiano Ronaldo's departure as an absolute guarantee from the penalty spot. With that of Thursday against Getafe, he accumulates 21 consecutive maximum penalties without failure, adding his releases with Madrid and with the Spanish team and including the batches. His last mistake dates back to May 5, 2018, in a 3-2 defeat against Sevilla, in which he had two penalties, wasting the first and scoring the second. Curiously, who defended the goal of Seville that day is also his latest victim, David Soria. In total, he's only missed four of 33 pitches in his career.

His streak of success is only comparable to that of two other footballers in Spain. Getafe striker Jaime Mata has 25 in a row , although he has divided them between Segunda B, Segunda and Primera. Something similar to what happens to Cristhian Stuani, with identical streak to that of Mata between First and Second, category in which he debuts this season with Girona.


“Our captain is our leader on and off the field. He is an unrepeatable player, unique, we know what he transmits to others. I'm glad for his goal, he is very confident in the penalty shoot-out », his coach, Zinedine Zidane , praised him , minutes after the victory against Getafe, in which Ramos reached 450 league games with Madrid, for which he received a commemorative shirt from the hands of its president, Florentino Pérez.

But beyond his effectiveness from the penalty shootout, the also captain of the team is being a capital piece in Madrid's return to competition. Zidane's have scored 12 goals in these six games and four of them, a third, bear his signature. Two of them have been penalties, against Real and Getafe, one of lack against Mallorca and the other in play in the rerun against Eibar.

With these four goals, Ramos increases his account in this League to nine, the same as Morata or Oyarzabal, more than Griezmann or Rodrigo. Only 14 players surpass him in the entire championship, including Karim Benzema , Madrid's only prolific scorer more than him: 17 goals. To find a top scorer in a league you have to go back to 2005-06, in which left-back Mariano Pernía scored 10 with Getafe. With five days to go, Ramos, already the most pure goalscorer in the history of the League and still has time to beat one more record.
