Based on Statistics, Real Madrid is Really Happy Without Gareth Bale
Real Madrid star, Gareth Bale, certainly absent to defend the Wales national team and his club in some time to come. The former winger of Tottenham Hotspur is injured.
Bale reportedly injured a calf muscle while defending Real Madrid against Borussia Dortmund on second matchday Champions League group stage on Tuesday (26/09/2017) or Wednesday morning GMT. Former world’s most expensive player is expected to be absent for four weeks.
However, judging from the statistics, the absence of Bale even make Real Madrid fans happy. Since debuting for Los Blancos in 2013, the percentage of the Spanish capital club’s victory is greater if Bale is not playing.
According to Opta’s records, Real Madrid had a 83 percent winning percentage by collecting 2.6 points per match if Bale did not play. Conversely, if the player is playing Wales, Real Madrid only have a percentage of victory by 69 percent with the acquisition of 2.2 points per game.
This season Bale has appeared in nine games with a record three goals in all competitions. Real Madrid still have names like Isco, Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazques to fill the position of wing attackers usually occupied Bale.
In addition to missing out on Wales in the last two European World Cup qualifiers against Georgia and Ireland, Bale is unlikely to play when Real Madrid meet former club Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League.
