By Soccer Blog | Aug 28, 2020

Here is a look at the xG stats for Celtic vs Ferencvaros from the second round of Champions League qualifying. Neil Lennon’s side suffered a shock exit as they lost 2-1- see the paper player ratings, but it was also an example of how the single leg format lends it greater to upsets.

Both of Ferencvaros’ two goals were well-taken ones, but their seven shots had a xG of just 0.55. Celtic on the other hand, had over 20 shots, with a cumulative xG of well over 2, and 70% of possession, but couldn’t convert their opportunities into goals. The absence of Odsonne Edouard didn’t help matters either.
