Real Madrid not missing Cristiano from the spot

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 1,680

Real Madrid's penalty taker between 2009 and 2018 was Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese was an expert from 12 yards, but since his departure, the team have actually done even better in this department.

CR7's presence in the Real Madrid squad saw him become the club's penalty specialist. The Portuguese, the club's highest goalscorer ever, scored 79 of his 92 spot kicks, a success rate of 85.8%.

Due to his great ability at scoring spot kicks, no one questioned him. Cristiano gave Ramos or Benzema the chance to have a go the odd time, but Ronaldo took almost all of them. 

Since the Portuguese left, they have had 14 penalties and scored all of them. An impeccable 100% success rate which beats CR7's stats at the club. 

In the post-Cristiano era, Sergio Ramos has taken seven, Karim Benzema four and Bale had one chance. 14 out of 14 for the team from the capital. They did not seem to be missing the Portuguese star when it comes to taking penalties. 

In fact, Cristiano himself has not got a 100% record from the spot at Juventus. For the 'Bianconeri', the Portuguese has netted eight out of nine (88.8%).
