Crazy Divock Origi stat emerges from Genk victory

This is actually mad!

Champions League winning forward Divock Origi last night had his first shot in the competition’s history that didn’t result in a goal.

That’s according to Duncan Alexander on Twitter:

The Belgian had an effort v Genk in the final minutes of the first-half that skewed wide – and according to the stats expert – it’s the only time one of his Champions League efforts hasn’t results directly in a goal.

Last season, Origi scored twice v Barcelona in the semi-final and once in the Final v Spurs – and had no failed attempts in between!

Origi actually played very well last night – and it was probably his best performance of the campaign where he hasn’t come off the bench – bar maybe the Arsenal game last week.

He’s proving to be an able backup to our front-three, and considering our fixture schedule in November, December and January, he’s going to play a massive role.
