Plenty of numbers from the Club World Cup

The last official tournament of 2018 which finished yesterday night was quite successful. We know that Real Madrid has won for the fourth time (more than anyone), who also was the third consecutive trophy. And now, after all is over comes a little statistics of what has been done and achieved at the competition.
In 8 duels impressive 33 goals were scored or 4.125 per match. Players were very happy to give most goals in the second half - 18, while 15 times they have shaken the net in the first 45 minutes. In all 16 halves one goal was scored or more (until 4), except in one game: second 45 minutes for the fifth / sixth place in Esperance Tunis - Chivas Guadalajara where zero goals were scored. One player has scored into his own net (the last match). From 8 matches, 3 needed a lottery deciders.
Referees gave in total 4 penalties: out of which half of them were converted, one was perfectly saved, while the last one hit the crossbar. The 'men in yellow' also gave 3 red cards, who 2 of them were direct and both were given in extra time: one was received at the 121 minute. Another straight red was issued in 96 minute, while one player got 2 yellow cards on the same duel 18 minutes earlier (this happened in the above mentioned game). This was the only play where a referee gave two red cards for the same ('home') team in 120 minutes of football.
