Manchester United are the team in Europe’s top five leagues that are most dangerous in injury time at the end of games.
For years under Sir Alex Ferguson, United were known for their propensity to score key late goals. Indeed, the intimidating figure cut by Ferguson on the touchline, and the subsequent pressure the referee was said to be under, led to this period being known as ‘Fergie Time’.
Current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was the scorer of one of the most famous of these goals as he netted in the 1999 Champions League final as Man Utd came back from behind to beat Bayern Munich 2-1 down very late on.
His side appear to have inherited the knack of scoring late on, too.
Which team scores the most late goals?
United have scored six times this season after the 90th minute – no other team in Europe has more that four. Indeed, each of Europe’s top leagues has at least one team on that mark, with Real Madrid and Milan the most notable.

In terms of teams that finishes matches strong, though, it is Paris Saint-Germain who are the most prolific side in the 75th minute or later. Mauricio Pochettino’s men have scored 15 goals in that period.

The best side in Spain, meanwhile, are runaway league leaders Atletico Madrid, who have netted 12 times in the closing stages of matches. That mark is equalled in the Premier League by Chelsea and Leicester, as well as in Italy by Inter and Sassuolo.
