UEFA Europa League
Understanding Europa League Team Stats
UEFA Europa League Group Stage participants are awarded three points for a win, none for a loss and one for a tie. Here are plenty of Europa League stats by team that can be researched but some of the most common are in the standings or match recaps. Examples include points, goal difference, goals and goals against, shots and shots on target and possession.
Goal difference, calculated by subtracting a team’s goals conceded from their goals for, is one of the most important statistics around. It can fundamentally change the Europa League Knockout Stage race. That’s because it’s one of the tiebreakers in the event that two or more teams are tied at the end of the Group Stage.
The ones already mentioned aren’t the only soccer team stats relevant for betting. Home and away records are important as well as records against the goal line. Shutout percentage can provide a decent idea of the quality of a team’s goalie and back line. Meanwhile, make sure to stay updated on yellow and red cards for suspension reasons.
