Ronaldo’s quick 30, Ramos scores 3, Kane’s prolific 11: Stats



There were plenty of upsets in the weekend’s football action around Europe, resulting in a veritable feast of statistics. Manchester City were beaten by Wolves, but Tottenham moved up to second place after a win over Liverpool. Arsenal won with relative ease, while Manchester United lost to Crystal Palace. Barcelona’s narrow win over Sevilla kept them a point behind La Liga leaders Real Madrid, who won away to Girona.

Inter and AC Milan have a four-point lead at the top of Serie A after relatively comfortable wins, while Atalanta and Juventus shared the spoils in goalless draws. After Bayern Munich lost their lead in the Bundesliga after a draw with Leipzig, Bayer Leverkusen leapfrogged with their win. Over in France, PSG’s poor start continued with a draw while AS Monaco went top after a 3-2 win over Marseille.

of ESPN by number Here are the best stats from the weekend:


30 September was quite a memorable day in Premier League history, as Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City all lost. September was the only other time in PL history when three teams lost on the same date. 17, 2006 – 6222 days ago.


Liverpool were 19-game unbeaten before losing to Spurs, their 1-2 defeat the club’s first defeat in all competitions since April 1st this year.


You can see why Mikel Arteta keeps playing Bucayo Saka – the Englishman has contributed 9 goals in 9 games in all competitions this season.


Manchester United have not lost back-to-back home games in the Premier League since losing to Liverpool in October. 24, 2021 and then in Man City on November 6, 2021 – 695 days ago.


Barcelona are 18-3-0 (WDL) in their last 21 La Liga meetings as a home team against Sevilla, the third longest home unbeaten streak against Sevilla in La Liga history.

3 O.G

Sergio Ramos scored an own goal in the 76th minute for Barcelona. It was his third career own goal in La Liga (his previous 2 own goals were for Real Madrid, but both were for Sevilla).


Nacho earned his first career red card in the win over Real Madrid, his first in 316 appearances for the club in all competitions.

0-2 to 3-2

This comeback season joins Atlético Athletic (August 27) and Barcelona (September 23) as the only teams to win La Liga this season while trailing by more than one goal at any point. Only 1 team did it last season: Real Betis (February 2023)

2 3 years

Real Sociedad’s 3-0 win over Athletic in the Basque derby was their biggest win over their rivals since a 4-1 win in April 2000.


Atlético never lose when Angel Correa scores. The Argentine has found the net in 51 La Liga games for Atleti, of which the club have won 43 and drawn 8.


Luis Suarez (No, not the Uruguayan) scored 3 goals in the first half vs. Granada, becoming the third Colombian-born player in La Liga history with a hat trick, joining Radamel Falcao (4 times) and Carlos Bacca (2).


Speaking of El Tigre, Radamel Falcao scored his 61st career La Liga goal, 1 shy of the most by a Colombian-born player in La Liga history.


Ricardo Orsolini is the second player in Serie A to score a hat-trick this season after Lautaro Martinez.


Lautaro Martínez is the first player to score 4 goals as a substitute in a single game in Serie A in the last 30 seasons (ie the three-point era – since 1994-95).


Harry Kane contributed his 11th goal for Bayern Munich in a 2-2 draw against Leipzig, moving level with Stuttgart’s Serhou Guirasi for the most goals in the Bundesliga this season.


It was the first of 20 occasions that RB Leipzig had failed to win a Bundesliga game when leading 2-0 at halftime.

8 vs. 7

Monaco have dropped the most points in Ligue 1 this season (8), while their opponents – Marseille – dropped the most (7) in their 3-2 win.

Messi-Ronaldo look

No Messi, no team. Inter Miami was without Lionel Messi for the third game, with the club struggling in his absence. Meanwhile, Ronaldo was finding the net for Al Nasr.

30 of 34, 13/22

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 30th goal in just 34 games for Al Nasr. Only his time at Real Madrid was quicker, where he took 33 games to reach the mark, compared to 48 for Juventus and 147 for Manchester United. Ronaldo’s 30th club goal of the 2023 calendar year also gives him 13 of his 22 seasons with at least 30 club goals. He also hit double figures in 18 of 22 seasons.
