Paris Saint-Germain right-back Achraf Hakimi is off to a great start this 2023-24 season. Even though the squad has struggled at times during the UEFA Champions League group stage, it’s not because of Moroccan’s performance.
Through five matchdays, Squawka spotlighted the top players in the group stage who have created more chances from open play than any other player in the Champions League so far this season.
Who is Achraf Hakimi ahead of on the list?
The 25-year-old has created 14 open-play chances. Additionally, he’s ahead of players like Manchester City’s Jack Grealish (12) and Real Madrid’s Jude Bellingham (12). Furthermore, Hakimi isn’t the only PSG player on the list.
Ousmane Dembélé finds himself a little further down the list, as he’s in a six-way tie with 12 open-play chances created. Nonetheless, the Frenchman could fall the pecking order. He’ll miss the final matchday game against Borussia Dortmund due to yellow card accumulation.

As for PSG, they’ll need to win on the road against the German side. A victory clinches them for the knockout stages. However, it’s a task that’s easier said than done.
