LaLiga Santander 2019 – 20TOHas the worst goalscoring records in the five major European leagues
Sin goal there is no football, goals are loves, the goal is the joy of football … and so we could continue with thousands of expressions dedicated to one of the most important protagonists in a football game: the goal.
Until LaLiga Santander, and the rest of domestic competitions in Europe, had to close out due to the pandemic that is plaguing the entire world, a total of 685 goals had been scored in the 270 gamesIn First Division, the number of poorer scores compared to that of the rest of the five major European leagues, averaging 2.53 goals per game, the lowest of the five matched by Ligue 1.
In that particular ranking of the highest scoring European competitions to date, the leader and outstanding Pichichi wasthe Premier League who had come to see up to a total of 784 goals in their matches (2.74 per game),followed by Serie A with 746 goals (2.96 per game), the Bundesliga with 728 goals (3.26 per game) and Ligue 1 with 704 goals (2.53 per game.
This scoring ‘shortage’ in Spain with respect to its sister competitions in Europe begins to become somewhat usual if you take a look and analyze the scoring data of our competition in recent years.The average number of goals averaged this season until Matchday 27 was 2.53 goals per game, the lowest in Primeradivision since the 06-07 season that ended the campaign with an average of 2.47 goals per game, and in this 21st century it is the fourth lowest after the aforementioned of 06-07, after 05-06 (2 , 46) and 01-02 (2.52).
The scoring trend in Spain is downward, the Spanish championship to continue with these averages, will add its fourth consecutive season in scoring decline.Since the 2015-16 season LaLiga Santander has not finished as the highest scorer of the five major European leaguesThat season ended the campaign as the highest scorer with 1043 goals. Of the last 11 seasons, only three times have Spanish teams been the top scorers in Europe. In addition, last season was the first to not reach a thousand goals since 06-07.
A fact that speaks of the little goalscoring success that is being seen in Spain in this course isthe number of goalless draws that have occurred, the Spanish First Division is the competition with the most goalless gamesHe has seen to date, 46 beating Ligue 1 (42), Serie A (349, Premier (32) and Bundesliga (18).
There is no maxim that justifies this low scoring in Spain but there are several reasons that may have conditioned these data or that had to do with the fact that the Spanish League is less wet.
One of them may have beenthe flight from our championship of two goalscoring figures such as Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo. Each of them was part of a trident, the MSN and the BBC, who assured theirs a number of goals that made them reach hundreds of goals among the three.
Equality in Spain has increased,Barcelona and Real Madrid are no longer so superior to other teamsof the Spanish League and it is for this reason that their matches are no longer resolved with markers and goals typical of a minor league.
The level of the goalkeepers has been improved in Spain,the goalkeepers of the Spanish League is very high, and personified in the figure of Ter Stegen, Courtois and Oblak,the Spanish goals end up having in the matches many times more prominence than the forwards themselves.
A system change that has been implemented in Spain.The now famous 5-3-2 is becoming more common in Spanish teams, a tactical drawing that although it allows to have two very open lanes with a lot of travel, ends up forcing your team to play very tightly.
