He has 22 goals during that streak, and 26 goals in total in his last 15 matches.“We leave with mixed feelings,” Athletic coach Jose Angel Ziganda said. “The team played well throughout the match. It was a pity to concede that goal in the end. We were close to victory.” Athletic goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, who reportedly was close to being signed by Madrid in the offseason, had a great performance to keep the hosts at bay earlier.“To earn a positive result in this stadium, you need the goalkeeper to play well,” Arrizabalaga said. “It makes you mad to concede the equalizer in the end, but if you look at the whole match, they created a lot of chances.”Athletic nearly made it 2-0 when Raul Garcia struck the crossbar with a shot from near the penalty spot in the 66th.Ronaldo had struck the woodwork with a header early in the first half.“We are happy with our performance but not with the result,” Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said. “We lacked calm on the final pass and ended up making too many crosses into the area, which was not ideal.”ADVERTISEMENT P16.5-M worth of aid provided for Taal Volcano eruption victims — NDRRMC Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding Canelo Alvarez suspended for 6 months for doping violations Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, right, shoots the ball next to Athletic Bilbao’s Unai Nunez during a Spanish La Liga soccer match between Real Madrid and Athletic Bilbao at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid, Wednesday, April 18, 2018.

Revealed! This is where Leicester City would be without Jamie Vardy… it’s not pretty

first_img Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy Jamie Vardy broke Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record to become the first player in Premier League history to score in 11 consecutive games.In true fairytale style, the England international etched his name in the history books at the King Power Stadium, as Leicester City drew 1-1 with Manchester United, leaving supporters applauding his meteoric rise from non-league football.But while reports and headlines have centred upon the goals that he has scored, what may be of more interest – certainly to Claudio Ranieri – is how important his form in the final third has been for his club’s rise to the top of the table.Has he been as key, for example, as Harry Kane was to Tottenham Hotspur last season?talkSPORT has the answer, as we reveal the stats that show how crucial the 28-year-old has been for the Foxes (all stats correct up to 2 December 2015).– Vardy has scored 14 goals and earned the Foxes 14 points– Without him, Leicester City wouldn’t be challenging Manchester City for top spot, rather they would be level with Chelsea on 15 points in 14th place– Vardy, however, isn’t the only player that has been key to their shock rise in the Premier League, as team-mate Riyad Mahrez has earned nine points through his seven goals– Without Vardy and Mahrez’s contributions, Leicester would have just six points this season 1last_img read more
