One of the keys to Real Madrid’s victory in the Classic against Barcelona came in the play that ended in 1-2. Ramos ended up on the ground after a grab of Lenglet, and after revision of the VAR, Munuera Montero it decreed that it was maximum penalty.
Sergio Ramos, a specialist from eleven meters, did not miss, despite the fact that Neto guessed the direction of the shot. The goal was celebrated by the Madrid captain pointing to the number and by thousands of white fans from their homes, in addition to being a goal against the great rival, for ending an old claim.
The merengue fans had made it a habit to remember on social media before each game at the Camp Nou that whistling a penalty had become a real unicorn: almost impossible to see.
In fact, since 1992, only two more had been called until this meeting. The last had been in 2007, what did it mark Ruud van Nistelrooy.
This was also Ramos’ first goal in a Clásico that is not headed and equaled Ronald Koeman, precisely, as the defense scorer in a match between Barcelona and Madrid. They have both done five.
FCB 1-2 RMA (63 ‘) – 25 consecutive penalties scored by Sergio Ramos (including shoot-outs). Real Madrid had not taken a penalty at the Camp Nou in a La Liga match since March 10, 2007 (it was scored by Van Nistelrooy).
