Newcastle’s Georginio Wijnaldum-inspired thrashing of Norwich at the weekend surfaced this tidbit:
6 – Newcastle United scored with all six of their shots on target. Unremitting.

Who are the other members of this 100% on-target conversion club (big-5 leagues, 2012 onwards)?
|Date||Home||Away||Shots||On Target||Penalty Goals||Goals|
|2013‑09‑01||VfB Stuttgart||1899 Hoffenheim||13||6||0||6|
|2014‑10‑18||FC Bayern München||SV Werder Bremen||10||6||1||6|
|2015‑10‑18||Newcastle United||Norwich City||11||6||0||6|
|2013‑03‑30||Fortuna Düsseldorf||Bayer 04 Leverkusen||15||5||1||5|
|2013‑04‑20||Hannover 96||FC Bayern München||14||5||0||5|
|2013‑08‑25||Atlético de Madrid||Rayo Vallecano||14||5||0||5|
|2014‑09‑21||Leicester City||Manchester United||15||5||2||5|
And a whole bunch on 4 or fewer. Something of a Bundesliga speciality it appears, with Newcastle part of an exclusive club to do it without penalties. I had a really good Grexit/currency conversion/conversion rate joke, so I nearly included Costa Rica vs Greece from the last World Cup, as Costa Rica converted one normal time goal and all their penalties to join the 6/6 club, but that felt like cheating.
