After last week’s final, the Champions League officially finished with Bayern Munich lifting the trophy in the end. Due to Covid-19, it was quite an unusuals season with only 11 games instead of 13 for the finalists. Here’s a statistical overview of the 2019/2020 UEFA Champions League and as in the field, Bayern are everywhere.
Once again, Robert Lewandowski scored the most goals in a competition. After the Bundesliga and the DFB Pokal, the Champions League is the third time this season that he managed to get the most goals. He scored 15 goals in only ten games, almost breaking the record of Ronaldo who scored 17 in 13.
This year, two players were able to assist six goals. One being Angel Di Maria and the other one being Lewandowski. Unfortunately for the Pole, Di Maria managed to do so in only 9 games instead of 10. Therefore the Argentinian gets the title of “Most Assists”.
When it comes to dribbling, there are only few players to come close to Messi, arguably the best dribbler of all time. This season he showed once again how good he is by dribbling past 57 opponents in only 8 games, making him the player with the most completed dribbles in the Champions League this year.
With Bayern winning the title and having more possession than their opponents in almost every game, it’s no surprise that a midfielder from Munich wins this one. Thiago Alcantara completed a whopping 794 passes in 10 games, contributing massively to Bayern’s Champions League win this season.
And again, FC Bayern Munich reigns supreme. The attack around superstars like Lewandowski, Müller, Gnabry & co. managed to score 43 Goals in their 11 games. No one can imagine how deadly they will be next year, when they upgrade their attack with the left-wing Leroy Sané.
Most clean sheets
After the Champions League final against PSG, Manuel Neuer proved that even though he is 34 already, he still is one of the best. With 6 clean sheets in 11 games he got himself, once again, the award for best goalkeeper of the tournament.
