PSG v Barcelona: In-Game TSR

A really simple complimentary way to analyze the PSG v Barcelona game is to look at the shots battle battle between the two clubs.

We know the score was 2-2, we know Barcelona edged the Total Shots battle 15-14. But did one team rack up the shots at a certain point of the game? Did Barcelona sit off once they went into the lead? Let's find out.

I came up with this method which I have named In-Game TSR

This graph tells us who was winning the shots battle at any point point in the game.

It tells us by what margin, the flow of the game and, usually, what impact conceding a goal has on the trailing team. Think of it as dominance by shots

This particular game went as follows:

1-20 minutes PSG had the early shots and this is evident in their dominance.

21-41 minutes Barcelona begin to chip away at PSG's shots dominance and by the time of Barcelona's 1st goal on the 41st minuts the shots battle is almost level.

45-61 minutes Nothing much happened, a few shots. Barca with the slight lead.

62-78 minutes Barcelona register a few shots and begin to exert a dominance in the shot count. Just as this becomes evident a few quick shots from PSG result in Ibra's equalizer.

79-95 minutes The game seems to be over in terms of either team creating any further shooting opportunities. Barcelona converted their penalty, PSG equalized yet again.

The last two goals in the game came late on when it seemed neither team was either willing or able to create any further shooting chances. Just 2 shots (the goals) were registered in the last 16 minutes of play in the QF 1st leg. Yes the game was tight, but maybe the chart above points to two teams who were happy to take the draw and resume battle in a weeks time.
