.. If the place for a penalty or free kick is within 5 metres of the goal line, the mark for the kick is 5 metres from the goal line, opposite the place of infringement.
The mark for a penalty or free-kick must be in the field of play and be no closer than five metres from the goal line, as per the following table:

I don't see any difference between attacking/defending teams. Is it the word "opposite"?
