Steve Komphela once said, “stats are like a bikini, they don’t reveal everything.” - now while there is much wisdom in this, there is still something we can learn from statistics. Take a look at who the most trigger happy and most accurate shooters are in the league, the answers may shock you.
In terms of the most trigger happy teams in the league, the team that takes the most shots per game is Bloemfontein Celtic, with an average of 17 a game. Mamelodi Sundowns take the fourth most shots in the league with 14 per game.
Orlando Pirates lie at 11th in terms of the amount of shots taken per game. Interestingly, Pirates rank above Chiefs who take the second least amount of shots per game with an average of 11.5 shots a match.
Shooting is one thing, accuracy is another. Shockingly, the most accurate shooting team in the PSL is Highlands Park, who hit the target 41% of the time they shoot. Bidvest Wits are second with 39% and Mamelodi Sundowns are third with 36%.
Orlando Pirates have a shooting accuracy of 35%, making them the seventh most accurate team in the league. Kaizer Chiefs, on the other hand, only have a shooting accuracy of 14%, meaning that not only do they take the second least amount of shots in the league, but they rank 14th in the league for how many of those shots they get on target.
