Real Madrid, facing an attacking challenge after Vinicius’ injury, found an unexpected hero in Rodrygo.

The initial concerns raised by a goalless draw against Rayo Vallecano gave way to a remarkable transformation. In the subsequent four matches, Real Madrid scored an impressive 15 goals, with only three conceded.

Rodrygo Goes emerged as the star of this phase, contributing six goals (40% of the team’s total) and providing four assists. This surge contrasts with his previous modest contributions, highlighting a significant improvement.

The average of 3.75 goals per game in these recent matches signals a substantial shift in Real Madrid’s attacking prowess.

Before the draw with Rayo Vallecano, the team had only managed two substantial victories—4-0 against Osasuna and 3-0 against then-leaders Girona.

Notably, in the first 14 games across La Liga and Champions League, seven victories for Real Madrid had a slim one-goal margin.

In the 14 matches preceding the goalless draw, Ancelotti’s men had found the net consistently, amassing 29 goals at an average of 1.93 goals per game. In the recent four games, they nearly doubled their scoring average across competitions.

While the current average of 2.31 goals per game is commendable, it falls short of the prolific seasons under Ancelotti’s initial tenure.

Since Ancelotti’s return in 2021, Real Madrid consistently averages over two goals per game but remains notably below the peak.

In the current season, they stand at 2.32 goals per game, and Ancelotti aims to maintain this attacking momentum. Real Madrid has finally loaded their attacking artillery, and they show no signs of letting go.
