This section shows the match stats for both of the teams together. It shows the averages for each of each team´s last 5 matches (home or away).

Home team stats are shown on the blue bars, Away team on the red bars. The grey bar shows the AVERAGE for ALL TEAMS in this league this season.

This section shows AGAINST as well as FOR, goals conceded, shots against etc.

e.g. Look at the CORNERS charts.

On average in this league this season teams win 5.1 corners per match. (Clearly this is the same figure as corners conceded average)

The home team here over the last 5 games won 6.0 corners a game conceding on average 5.2 a game.

The away team has been conceding corners at 5.6 a game, higher than the amount won 4.6.

The bottom 3 charts in this section show the MATCH TOTAL averages. So for example here in the home team’s last five games there have been, on average 4.2 goals a game.

 

last5home2SECTION 6 – LAST FIVE HOMES STATS

This part show the same statistics as for section five but shows averages for the last 5 HOME games for today’s HOME team.

You may notice that in this section that the grey AVERAGE bars can be different sizes. This is because the FOR graph looks at averages for teams playing at HOME only and the AGAINST at those for teams playing AWAY.

This chart shows us that teams playing at home on average score more goals and have more shots than teams playing away.
