The Week in Numbers

  • 30 for 30 in England

  • A world-record run is ended

  • Who broke a Ronaldo record?

93
seconds is all it took Rodrygo to net after coming on against Osasuna, making him the fastest player to score on his Real Madrid debut since Ronaldo took 62 seconds against Alaves in 2002. The 18-year-old and Vinicius Junior, 19, ensured two teenagers scored in a league game for Los Merengues for the first time since Guti and Raul were on target against Valladolid in 1996.
77
years had passed since Torino turned a deficit into victory against AC Milan in Serie A until Andrea Belotti’s brace took him on to ten goals in 11 games in all competitions this season. Giuseppe Meazza put Milan ahead in 1942, but FIFA World Cup™ winners Aldo Olivieri and Felice Borel inspired Il Grande Torino to a 5-2 win.
40
goals in her last 22 appearances for Minsk are the staggering statistics belonging to Emueje Ogbiagbevha. The Nigerian striker’s latest double helped Minsk make it 26 successive victories in all competitions with an upset of FC Zurich that saw them become the first Belarussian side to reach UEFA Women’s Champions League’s Round of 16.
34
consecutive victories – during which they had scored 114 goals and conceded just ten – was the world-record run that ended for Corinthians women in a 1-1 draw against Ferroviaria in the first leg of the Campeonato Brasileiro final. The New Saints had held the previous record of 27 since seizing it from Johan Cruyff’s Ajax in 2016.
22
home games is what Paris Saint-Germain had gone without defeat in Ligue 1 until Reims won 2-0 at the Parc des Princes. Rennes had been the last to win there in the league, also 2-0 in May 2018.
18
goals in the NWSL 2019 is what Sam Kerr made it with a double against Washington Spirit that sent Chicago Red Stars into the playoffs – a new single-season record. It beat the previous best of 17 the Australia striker set in 2017. Kerr has 77 NWSL goals overall – her closest challengers on the all-time scoring chart, Christine Sinclair and Lynn Williams, have 49 apiece.
11
consecutive clean sheets is what Boca Juniors goalkeeper Esteban Andrada has kept across the Argentinian SuperLiga and Copa Libertadores. ‘Sabandija’ helped Los Xeneizes win 2-0 at San Lorenzo to become the first side to survive the first seven rounds of an Argentinian league campaign undefeated since its revamp in 1985.
8
goals without return is what Manchester City put past Watford to record their biggest victory in the English top flight – 120 years after they first appeared in it. It left Pep Guardiola’s men and Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool with a +30 goal difference between them, and the other 18 Premier League sides with a -30 goal difference cumulatively, six rounds into the season.
3
times is what Vasco da Gama trailed in the Copa Libertadores Beach Soccer final – only to beat Cerro Porteno 7-5 and win their third crown at the venue of this year’s FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup Paraguay 2019. Vasco have appeared in all four of the competition’s finals, scoring 31 goals in them.
