With Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid there was no question who the shooter was from the penalty spot. Once the Portuguese left, Ramos assumed that role. But now that the defender is gone, who will be in charge of executing the maximum penalties in Madrid?
Let’s see who the best pitchers Ancelotti has on the roster are.
3. Karim Benzema
Karim Benzema has been the second pitcher during these years behind Ramos. The Frenchman has taken 12 penalties with Madrid and has scored all 12.
2. Toni Kroos
We have never seen Kroos take a penalty with Real Madrid, in fact he has only taken 5 in his entire career, 4 with the German team and 1 with Bayern and has scored all 5 (not counting the rounds). Perhaps this season he will have his debut with the white team from 11 meters.
1. Gareth Bale
Perhaps many of us have forgotten that Gareth Bale is still on the Real Madrid squad and we don’t know the role he will play with Ancelotti. But the Welshman has a good shot and if he has to take responsibility for throwing a maximum penalty he will.
