The 100% Club

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.
