Madrid, the third best visitor

Berta Brau

Real Madrid’s place at the top of the table is partly due to the team’s away form. They have the third best record in the competition.

Real Madrid are not on quite such spectacular away form as they are at home, but are doing well all the same. The all-whites have the third best away record in the league.

Madrid have collected 14 out of 24 possible away points, through four wins, two draws and two defeats. The only two sides to have beaten Madrid season are Espanyol and Sevilla.

Two Madrid loses

Espanyol beat Real Madrid 2-1 thanks to goals from Riera and Tamudo, with Sergio Ramos grabbing what was only a consolation goal in the final seconds.
Schuster’s side also lost to Sevilla. The Andalusians dominated a match in which Madrid failed to find a response. Madrid’s only two defeats, then, have come against two of the best placed sides.

10 goals in two games

Despite the high number of goals, 10 of these goals came in just two games, away to Valencia (1-5) and Villarreal (0-5).

Attack and defence

In terms of defence, Schuster’s side have let in seven goals, although Atlético Madrid have an even better away record, conceding just 6 goals.
