This weekend, Kylian Mbappe and Moussa Dembele should find the light. Cured, the first is back in the PSG group for the trip to Nice (Friday, 20.45). The second, not titularized by Sylvinho against RB Leipzig (victory 2-0 in C 1) nor Saint-Étienne (0-1, in Ligue 1), will be part of the eleven Lyon against Dijon, Memphis Depay being absent. The two French strikers, however, live a very different start to the season in terms of offensive success.
The Parisian scored one goal, a surprising record given the opportunities he has enjoyed. The Lyonnais, author of six achievements, is on the contrary in "over-performance". To use the jargon of poker, Mbappe is in '' bad run '' while Dembele is in '' rush ''.
According to Opta's statistics, Lyonnais Dembele and Depay should have scored between four and five goals together, given their chances and the position of their strikes. They put ten! Angevin Rachid Alioui, at low play time, should see his total rather close to two than today's four. But his terrible strikes from afar hit where very few players could score.
Delort and Laborde should have scored 7 or 8 goals
For his part, Kylian Mbappe has often found himself in a good position to find the net. But, instead of registering between three and four achievements, he scored only once. The worst being Andy Delort (Montpellier), with a differential of xG (Expected Goals) very close to 3. This is largely due to his two penalties missed Rennes and Lyon. The MHSC is also not very well off, Gaetan Laborde also having a balance sheet xG deficit (0 goal scored instead of 1.66). Traveling to Reims, Montpellier will be deprived of Delort this weekend. Without his "black cat", will he be more effective offensively?
