Ramos misses two penalties after 25 consecutive hits

May 9, 2018 and November 14, 2020. A historical period in which Sergio Ramos had recorded a total of 25 penalties (23 in a match and two in a shoot-out) scored consecutively. An insurance in the maximum penalty, both for Real Madrid and for Spain. However, it was with ‘La Roja’, on the same day that he became the European with the most caps, when he failed again. To make matters worse, he did it up to two occasions, the first in minute 57 and the second in minute 79. Both fired at the same place. In this way, Ramos became the first player on the Spanish team to miss two penalties in the same game.

His executioner: Yann Sommer, Switzerland goalkeeper. Which he also had to face weeks ago in a Champions League Borussia Mönchengladbach – Real Madrid. That time, it was not a penalty, but he was able to beat him with a decisive goal for the draw for Zidane’s men. Precisely, the last goalkeeper who deprived him of scoring a penalty was Daniel Subasic, from Croatia, also with the Spanish team, in Euro 2016 (also the last one who missed with Spain). In addition, he has fallen one goal away from the best streak, which is held by Cristiano Ronaldo: 26 penalties in a row between February 2010 and April 2012.
