No club has hit more shots on target than Manchester City in the current Champions League season. The blues have been exceptional this season in every regard. They have been scoring goals for fun and have an air-tight defence. This City side has similarities to that of Pep Guardiola’s famous Barcelona side which ruled Europe with aplomb. Guardiola has not won a Champions League since and neither have Man City in their history. However, it could all change this summer.
Manchester City have steamrolled their way into the Champions League final after overcoming European giants such as Bayern Munich and Real Madrid in their last two rounds. Next up is a final clash with Italian heavyweights Inter Milan. Very few could bet against Man City from lifting the trophy. Taking into account the form they are currently in, Guardiola’s side are favourites to lift the unprecedented treble at the end of the campaign. Let us now look at the clubs that have registered the most shots on target.
Manchester City, Real Madrid top the charts
It is not a surprise to see these two clubs at the top of this table. At the start of the season, Manchester City and Real Madrid were labelled by many as favourites to go all the way. To both clubs’ credit, they have lived up to that expectation. Unfortunately, they were drawn together in the semi-final stage itself. Hence, one team had to leave way for the other and it was defending champions Real who were eliminated in the last-four stage. Man City were at their supreme best in the semi-final, as they walked into the championship match.
Manchester City have topped most of the list in the current Champions League campaign, hence there is little surprise that they are on top of this table too. City have registered 85 attempts on target this season, compared to second-placed Real Madrid’s 76 shots. Third place is held by Bayern Munich with 72 shots on target, while recently crowned Italian champions Napoli come in at fourth with 71 strikes. With all their nearest rivals in this table being already eliminated from this competition, it is safe to say that Man City will end up at the top of this chart when the season concludes.
Which are the other big clubs in the list?
This year’s other finalist Inter Milan are fifth in this table with 57 shots on target till now. The gap between them and Man City is too high so its highly unlikely they will surpass them in the final. Premier League clubs such as Liverpool and Chelsea also have a place in this list alongside other established teams in Europe.
