January 30 – Paris St-Germain lead all European teams when looking at the most efficient shots-to-goal ratios. PSG so far this season have scored every 4.7 shots.
The research, analysed by the CIES Football Observatory from InStat data, found the next most efficient goalscoring team in the Big 5 European to be Borussia Dortmund with 4.8.
“The most efficient teams in the three remaining leagues of the big-5 are Barcelona (5.4 shots per goal), Arsenal (5.8) and Sampdoria (5.9). The highest figure among teams from the five major European leagues was recorded for Huddersfield Town: 17.3 shots per goal. The Premier League club must absolutely improve this statistics to avoid relegation,” says the report.
Looking outside the big-5, the most efficient are Switzerland’s Young Boys (4.8), ahead of FC Midtjylland and PSV Eindhoven.
“On the contrary, Apollon Smyrnis (25.1), Hapoel Tel Aviv (21.1) and Arsenal Kyiv (20.7) were so far particularly inefficient,” finds the report.
