Former Chelsea Coash Avram Grant shows Tuchel how to beat Manchester city in UCL final



The professor of economics found that two of Sir Alex Ferguson’s players showcased specific biases, with those being Edwin van der Sar and Cristiano Ronaldo; the former had a very strong tendency to dive towards the right for right-footed players and the left for left-footed players, whereas the latter would almost always shoot to the right when he stuttered in his run to the ball.

Although the Blues eventually lost the shoot-out, Palacios-Huerta was correct regarding his two predictions, with Nicolas Anelka missing the decisive penalty after going against the data and shooting towards the side of his favoured foot, allowing Van Der Sar to make a stop.

Moreover, after the final whistle was blown at the PGE Arena on Wednesday, Bruno Fernandes won the coin toss,  but decided that Villarreal should kick first, which is actually recognised as an advantage beneath the surface.

After the contest in Gdansk, Solskjaer stated: “I’ve not asked Bruno who won the toss, I let him get on with it, we had penalty-takers with confidence, we made some changes to get them on and take the penalties.

“If United had applied penalty findings to the clash, perhaps Fernandes would have been informed that roughly 60 percent of teams which kick first tend to win shoot-outs.

According to Palacios-Huerta, that is because of how the leading and lagging asymmetry affects performance; it is simply better to be leading than to be chasing.

Ex-Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez has profited from delving into the data ahead of a final, with his most successful night in charge of Liverpool happening largely with thanks to the application of penalty knowledge in Istanbul; the Reds managed to defeat AC Milan in the 2005 Champions League final after Jerzy Dudek made a series of vital stops.
