xG PSG Bayern 1.02-1.59 Champions League Final 2020 | Expected Goals Stats Map Paris SG Munich UCL

By Soccer Blog | Aug 23, 2020

Here is a look at the xG stats for the PSG vs Bayern Munich Champions League final, a fixture the German giants edged 1-0 on 23 August, 2020 thanks to Kingsley Coman’s header on the hour mark. A tight game, perhaps shaded by Bayern, but PSG did have their chances as shown on this expected goals map. Data from two different xG data models.

Model 1| xG PSG 1.02-1.59 Bayern Munich (Actual score Paris SG 0-1 FC Bayern)

xg Bayern PSG Champions League Final 2020

xG of some big missed chances for PSG

Kylian Mbappe miss 45′ xG (0.31)- shot straight at Manuel Neuer
Marquinhos missed chance 70′ xG (0.32)- again saved by Neuer

Mbappe’s shot didn’t quite have the power it needed, but Neuer was excellent in the Bayern goal.

Paris Saint-Germain had more shots inside the box, as seen in the map, but weren’t able to convert any of them.

    Like with Lyon, PSG just didn’t take the chances that game their way. The Mbappe chance just before half time was a really, really good one. Can’t be missing from there if you want to win a CL final.

    If you add that late Choupo Moting miss (doesn’t count in xG because he didn’t get a shot on it), it would probably be worth another 0.5-0.6 to PSG, probably more!

    Interesting seeing the variances in the two xG models. The second one is certainly fairer in terms of Neymar’s stats…his effective one on one with Neuer in the 18th minute was a far greater opportunity than the 0.06 given by the first model.
