Casemiro’s return to action against Cadiz coincided with a vital 0-3 away win as Real Madrid continue to fight for La Liga in a tight race with Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. The victory was Los Blancos’ 27th win of the season in 44 matches in all competitions. This gives Zidane’s men a win percentage of 61% this season. When looking at core members of the team based on the eleven players that have accumulated the most minutes, Casemiro and Mendy have won the highest ratio of games they featured in.
The two players with the highest winning percentage are are each among the most defensively sound on the team. They have been been critical to Real Madrid’s progression to the latter stages of the Champions League and still being in contention domestically. Mendy in particular boasts a very impressive La Liga record having only lost three games (!) in 50 games overall since he joined the club.
Both Mendy and Casemiro will be instrumental and key factors in helping Real Madrid navigate the last stretch of the season as the club chases down what seemed improbable at various points of the current campaign.
