On Tuesday, Adebayor got something that had only achieved two players in the history of Real Madrid; scoring two headed goals in a Champions League match. Ivan Zamorano did it against Ferencvaros, October 18, 1995, and Panucci against Sturm Graz, May 5, 1998. Were his first two goals since leaving dreadlocks.
In his last three seasons in the Premier League, Adebayor averaged 28% of headed goals (7 of the 25), but his last nine goals in the English Championship before coming to Real Madrid in January, were scored with the right leg.
Real Madrid is the tallest team in the League (1.83 meters), ahead of Racing (1.82),Osasuna (1.82), Athletic (1.82) and Levante (1.82). The samllest team in Spanish League, Barcelona (1.78). But Athletic Bilbao is the team has scored most headed goals (16) this season, ahead of Almeria (10) and Real Sociedad (10). However, the "Lions" have only scored one of their last 16 goals with the head after the spectacular start of the season which invites to think about the Betis' stratospheric record. The green-white team scored 25 goals with the head in season 1996-97.
