PSG is the unluckiest team! Confirmed!

PSG Champions League

Borussia Dortmund defeated PSG in the Champions League semifinal with a 0-2 on aggregate, and the stats showed that PSG are the unluckiest team in the competition this season.

Mats Hummels headed home the only goal in Paris to put the Bundesliga side in their second Champions League final since 2013. Meanwhile, the better side, well, at least the team who registered more shots and possessed more balls, suffered from another heartbreak.

According to the stats, Mbappe and his companies are the unluckiest side in the UCL this season.

According to Opta, PSG hit the woodwork 12 times this season of the UCL, with half coming against Dortmund in both legs of the semifinal.

This is the highest tally for any team on record in a single competition edition. 

Strikes from Vitinha, Kylian Mbappe and many more could not, for once, break the deadlock for the Ligue 1 Champions. 

To add more frustration, PSG scored 0 goals from 5.36(xG) in the Champions League semifinals against Borussia Dortmund.

What else?

  • 3.22 xG – PSG’s 30 shots saw them register the highest xG tally without scoring in a Champions League match nearly five years since Napoli against Genk in October 2019. PSG had 4.92 xG across the semifinal without scoring.

The billion-euro club failed to qualify for their second UCL final since 2020, while Dortmund’s hope is as strong and alive as ever.

This is the last chance, probably for Hummels and Marco Reus, who were featured in the final in 2013, when they were defeated by rivals Bayern Munich at Wembley.
