A goal to savour: 44 passes, 107 seconds and 11 players

A fine Real Madrid team goal against Deportivo which Casemiro supplied the finishing touch to, was preceded by the highest sequence of passes since the 2005/06 season.

The move began with goalkeeper Keylor Navas and ended with the midfielder netting for his first goal of the new league campaign.

Before he scored, every Real player touched the ball for a total of 44 completed passes in a period of 107 seconds.

The players who touched the ball the most were Isco and Luka Modric with eight apiece, Toni Kroos with six and Casemiro did so just twice.

With the goal, Real have bettered Valencia’s goal from last season when Santi Mina scored after 38 passes and 105 seconds of possession.

Valencia were also the victims of a similar goal last season when Las Palmas hit the net after 35 passes, while Barcelona needed 34 against the island outfit when Neymar provided the finish.
