In the ongoing season, Liverpool is outperforming Real Madrid in a significant metric—expected goals (xG)—even with Jude Bellingham’s stellar form, as concerns loom over Andy Robertson’s injury.
As the international break provides a moment for Liverpool to reflect on the season’s progress, the club can draw satisfaction from its overall performance despite the challenges of the summer transfer window. Notable acquisitions, including Dominik Szoboszlai and Alexis Mac Allister, have strengthened the squad, positioning Liverpool well in the Premier League standings.
Looking ahead, both in the immediate and distant future, Liverpool faces the uncertainty of Andy Robertson’s injury, sustained during international duty with Scotland. The severity of the shoulder injury remains undisclosed, and fans eagerly await updates from Jürgen Klopp’s press conference on Friday.
In a twist of fate, Liverpool, who opted not to pursue Jude Bellingham in the past transfer window, finds itself excelling in a particular aspect compared to Real Madrid—goal-scoring according to expected goals (xG). Despite Bellingham’s impressive start and prolific scoring for the Spanish side, Liverpool currently holds the upper hand in xG this season.
