Real Madrid Kroos, Modric and Casemiro are breaking records
Real Madrid have a goalscoring trident – but it’s not their front three.
Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Casemiro have contributed 15 goals between them to Zinedine Zidane’s side this season.
Kroos’ tally of seven goals and Modric’s total of five this season are their best numbers since joining Los Blancos.
As for Casemiro, his four goals this season is only fewer than his tally of seven during the 2017/18 campaign.
As a midfield three, this is their most prolific season to date.
Kroos, Modric and Casemiro scored five goals between them in their first season together in 2015/16 before moving on to 11 goals in 2016/17, 14 goals in 2017/18 and nine goals in 2018/19.
Real Madrid’s total goals from midfielders this season reaches 21, with Isco adding three, Fede Valverde two and James Rodriguez one to the tally.
If we take Karim Benzema’s 19 goals out of the front three, no combination can compare to Kroos, Modric and Casemiro.
The attacking trio of Rodrygo Goes, Vinicius Junior and Gareth Bale – Real Madrid’s top three attacking scorers this season minus Benzema – have scored 14 goals between them.
Out of them, only Rodrygo on seven goals has scored more individually than Kroos, Modric or Casemiro.
