Real Madrid Have Conceded More Goals Than Any Other La Liga Team This Season
Real Madrid bounced back from their 2-1 defeat to Valencia on Wednesday after securing a 2-1 win against Eibar on Saturday.
While Los Blancos have been missing the additional firepower of former talisman Cristiano Ronaldo this season, they have also been very poor defensively this season.
According to ESPN, the Spanish club have conceded more times (62) than any other La Liga teams this season.
Oh, and that particular stat applies to all competitions!

Since his return as Madrid boss last month, Zinedine Zidane has changed up the number one spot a fair few times.
Thibaut Courtois, who arrived from Chelsea last summer, last made his appearance for the reigning Champions League holders against Real Valladolid in March.
The 26-year-old Belgian shot-stopper was benched against Celta Vigo and Zizou has turned his attention to rotating between Keylor Navas and Luca Zidane.
Zidane's son was handed his Santiago Bernabéu debut last month against Huesca, with the 20-year-old French shot-stopper saying that he was happy to be handed the opportunity to start for the club.
"I am very proud to play here at the Bernabéu," he said.
"I have come through the youth team at the club, and after many years of hard work, I am pleased to make my home debut."
With Zidane wanting to put the club's disappointing season under Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari behind them, the Los Blancos head coach recently made it clear that he would have a first-choice 'keeper in place for the following campaign.
"Next season there will be no debate about the goalkeeper -- it's going to be very clear," he said (via BBC Sport).
"At the moment, there are three good keepers and we are going to finish the season with them."
During the 9 seasons Cristiano Ronaldo was at Real Madrid, he lost 53 games in 438 apps (6 per season).
