Football facts that don't sound true (but are)

Inspired by the Aguero not being a PotY conversation, what other facts do you know that sound like they shouldn't be true but are?

I'll start with a couple.

Jens Lehmann went a whole season in the Champions League without conceding a goal, and got all the way to the final.

Sergio Ramos has scored more goals than Andres Iniesta.
