The Croatian has scored 11 of his 13 goals for Real Madrid this way.
Luka Modric is a specialist in scoring goals from outside the area. Last Sunday, against Deportivo, he was at it again. He got the goal to make it 4-1, capping off a quick attack by Zidane's team. It was the Croatian’s thirteenth goal since his arrival at Real Madrid and his eleventh from outside the area. A fact that confirms his impact from distance.
Throughout his six campaigns at the club, Modric has always been amongst the goals. So far this season he has scored two, after opening his account in Nicosia with another goal from outside the box. In his first campaign in Spain football, Zaragoza, Manchester United, Mallorca and Malaga were all on the receiving end of his long-range goals.
His other five goals from outside the area came in 2013/14 against Copenhagen and Getafe; in 2014/15 against Villarreal; in 2015/16 against Granada and last season against Osasuna.
