Real Madrid have been free-scoring this season, scoring 52 goals so far.

It's the defence that has let Madrid down thus far, however. Having conceded 21 goals in 18 games, Los Blancos find themselves five points of the pace of leaders Barcelona.

With 273 chances created, there is clearly an emphasis placed on attacking, but that has come at the expense of defensive structure.
