UEFA Champions League

Barcelona Has Been Awarded The Most Penalties In A Season In The UCL Than Other Clubs In Europe

Penalty in the game of football is a form of punishment for the infringement of rules of football in the goalkeeper arena. The foul which brings about a penalty can be committed by any player and not necessarily a defender such as a handball foul in the goalpost, interference, disturbance or a hard tackle against an opposing player in the goalkeeper arena.

It is no longer news that when a penalty is given, a player is allowed to take a single shot while it is only the goalkeeper of the opposing team is allowed to stay in the goal post. Despite that only the goalkeeper of the opposing team is expected to defend or prevent the ball from getting into the net, some players still lose it.

In the history of the UEFA Champions League, over seven hundred (700) penalties have been awarded. 2016/2017 season remains season penalties have been awarded the most, fifty-three (53) while Barcelona FC and Real Madrid are the two (2) the clubs with the most penalties given, forty-two (42).

But when it comes to penalties awarded to clubs per season, Barcelona FC has more than other clubs in Europe. In the 2020/2021 season, the Spanish giant was awarded seven (7) penalties in eight (8) games before being knockout by Paris Saint-Germain. No doubt, the club is called the UEFA club. That is incredible!

Also, the club earned itself six (6) penalties in twelve (12) matches in the 2011/2012 season. Chelsea FC had six (6) penalties in the 2020/2021 season in thirteen (13) games which can be likened to the reason the Blues won the trophy last season.
