the distressing statistics of Parisians

The statistics confirm the visual impression that emerged from the meeting …

the PSG suffered on Wednesday for his entry into the Champions League. Highly anticipated due to the great first of the Messi-Neymar-Mbappé trio, the Parisians delivered a very sluggish performance against Bruges, especially in the midfield where alone Ander Herrera floated. Leandro Paredes and Georginio Wijnaldum then Danilo Pereira and Julian Draxler, who replaced them at the break, seemed unable to compete with their opponents.

Much more aggressive, especially on the second ball, the Belgians have long put the men of Mauricio Pochettino on the back, unable to get rid of the pressing imposed by their hosts. And while the vice-champions of France seemed unable to hinder the opponent’s first recovery. The fault in particular with the generosity of the MNM in the defensive replacement.

16.3 km less than Dortmund…

A statistic confirms the difference in intensity between the two teams, that of the distance covered by the two teams. While the Parisians covered 103.8 kilometers, the Belgians covered no less than 111.2, or 7.4 kilometers more. The comparison is obviously terrible for the players from the capital and all the more so when we look at the other match of the group where the players from Manchester City and Leipzig respectively ran 110.8 and 112 km.

The Parisians are certainly not the players to have run the least, Wednesday since the Merengue did not even pass the 100 km mark on the lawn of Inter Milan (99.7 km). Conversely, Borussia Dortmuns players ran no less than 120.1 km, or more than a kilometer more per player …

Finally, it should be noted that the player who ran the most on the Parisian side is none other than Ander Herrera, who leads the standings with 11.5 km. He is ahead of Neymar (10.2 km), Lionel Messi having only run 8.3 km.
