Real Madrid: These fans were shocked by statistic from loss against Paris Saint-Germain

Real Madrid: These fans were shocked by statistic from loss against Paris Saint-Germain

Real Madrid actually had more shots than Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday, recording 10 to their 9, as per WhoScored.

Though, while PSG walked away with three goals and an equal number of points, Real Madrid exited the game with an unwanted statistic:

Despite Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema hitting the back of the net, the goals were ruled out for handball and offside respectively, as shown in the highlight video on the BT Sport YouTube channel.

This meant they didn’t officially record a single shot on target for the first time in the last decade, a statistic that adds further embarrassment to the scoreline for Zinedine Zidane’s team.

Many fans have been left angered by Real’s inability to work Keylor Navas, especially as summer signing Luka Jovic was only given 20 minutes on the pitch to attempt to make a difference.

A selection of Twitter reaction to the statistic, including posts from shocked Real Madrid fans, can be seen below:
