and Toni Kroos
have a tremendous mutual understanding, which was on display once again in Real Madrid's
win at Mendizorroza (1-2
). The centreback headed home another free-kick whipped in by the German ace to open the scoring. They struck up the connection in the 2014/15 season, Kroos' first with the team. The midfielder set up the defender to score on four occasions (Real Sociedad, Cruz Azul, San Lorenzo and Atlético de Madrid).
The 2016/17 campaign was the most fruitful for the duo. The captain scored from a Kroos'
pass against Osasuna, Deportivo, Betis, Napoli and Málaga, twice. The Germans' last two assists for Ramos
have come in the 2017/18 season against Levante, and this term against Alavés.
