In today's visual, we'll be taking a look at the goal time distribution of the European Champions across League matches.

That is, the percentage of total goals and xG generated at specific time intervals during league matches.

When do Champions Score?

Amazing that Salzburg scored almost half of their goals during the final 15 minutes of the match, even though they just created 30% of their xG during that timeframe.

Also, seems like goals are harder to come by in the first fifteen minutes after the restart.  🤔
