Robin van Persie hitting the woodwork 10 times in a Premier League 2011/12 is the biggest one that I have found so far for Premier League. Is this the record for Premier League, and what is the record for other European Leagues?

1 Answer 1


La Liga:

In 2017/18 season, Lionel Messi hit the woodwork 18 times, which according to Opta, is the most in La Liga season since 2003/2004.

Premier League:

In 2011/12 season, Robin van Persie hit the woodwork 10 times, which according to premierleague.com, is the most in a Premier League season since 2006/2007.


In 2017/18 season, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hit the woodwork 5 times (I couldn't find anyone else with more and this is most probably not a record).

  • I couldn't find any records for Serie A or Ligue 1, but will keep an eye on stats.
