Champions League stats: Which clubs had the most shots in 2022-23 UCL season?

A team’s domination on the pitch can somewhat be determined by the number of shots they have on goal during the course of the game. It is not about how much possession a team has but how effectively they use the ball to create goal scoring chances. In many ways, the number of shots also do not matter, as it is the goals which separate the teams in the end. However, to score a goal, a team needs to have a go at their opponent and test their goalkeeper by shooting as much as possible.

Which club had the most attempts in 2022-23 Champions League season?

The club with the maximum number of attempts in the current Champions League season is Manchester City. It is not a surprise to see Pep Guardiola’s side at the top of this list.
