Real Madrid v Manchester United: Ronaldo and Van Persie most likely to score when other team tires

GAMBLERS gearing up for Real Madrid v Manchester United in the Champions’ League, listen up. The Sun’s Antony Kastrinakis has news. He’s looked at the data and can reveal the “stats” that “show when they’re at their deadliest”. They are Robin Van Persie and Cristiano Ronaldo. And news is that RVP is “most likely to score in the 49th minute“. Ronaldo will get his goal on the 50th. Only, that’s not quite right. In fact, its nonsense.

The most likely time to get a goal would be when that player has scored the most goals. Van Persie has not scored for United in the 49th minute. He has, however, scored in injury time or the half’s final minute on five occasions this season.

Ronaldo has not scored once in the 50th minute. He has scored three times this season in the final minute or in injury time.

So. About those killer stats…
