This specific take gives us an insight into the nature of the team when it comes to their passes. They are top on passes in the final third, with almost 150 per match, and also top on the effectiveness of these passes, with 86%. Moreover, they are the team who pass the most and shoot the most.

The team make the podium for high-impact actions, and in the infographic you can see the ones from the last match against Real Betis. El Cholo’s charges have the ability to generate a lot of dangerous actions in the opposition box and they are in the top three for passes leading to shots and total shots. And when it comes to effectiveness they take the top spot as the team with the highest percentage of shots on target.



Key Player

En-Nesyri, an elite finisher is turning things around

The Sevilla FC player is one of the 10 LALIGA EA Sports players who have taken the most shots so far this season. This is massively important for a team who are climbing up the table. What’s more, En-Nesyri has scored the fourth-most goals from crosses in the league, an important finishing skill at Sevilla, who use balls in from wide as a regular tactic. If we focus on how important the Moroccan striker is for his team, we find that he tops the metrics for shots ending in a goal and goals scored, both from open play and from set pieces. It is more than clear that he is Sevilla’s key man in front of goal.


The Match up

Girona v Osasuna: a clash of two different but intense styles

In the radar chart accompanying this section we can appreciate several of the differences between the playing styles of these two teams. Girona FC clearly stand out on metrics related to build-up and link-up play, such as possession, passes per possession, build-up effectiveness and, finally, on shots originating from this link-up play. Meanwhile, CA Osasuna excel on criteria typical of a much more direct game, such as the percentage of long passes, crosses and short possessions.


Remember his name

Luka Romero, a big presence with little game time

This young UD Almeria player boasts a noteworthy effectiveness when he is on the field of play. He has only started two matches in his four appearances, with a total of 156 minutes played. But in this time he scored the two goals which we show you. He executes almost 40 attacking actions per match and 50% of his shots have ended up in the back of the net. Although he is not yet playing on a regular basis, his performance levels are giving the Almeria fans plenty to get excited about.an terminado en gol. 

Metric of the week

Carries breaking the opposition’s midfield line

Carries are movements of the ball brought about by a player who moves the ball individually and in a controlled manner through different areas of the pitch. There are many aspects of them which we can measure, and today we are going to focus on which line they manage to break. Carries breaking the opposition’s midfield line are those where the player is able to overcome the midfield line of the opposing team. They are instrumental in channelling the play and putting the team in highly advantageous positions. FC Barcelona are the side with the most carries breaking the opposition’s midfield line.

Los datos brutos recogidos (Raw Data) son tratados para su análisis por un equipo multidisciplinar compuesto por expertos en Business Intelligence & Analytics y análisis futbolístico de LALIGA a través de procesos de Machine Learning e Inteligencia Artificial que se han hecho posibles gracias a la tecnología Azure que provee Microsoft, capaz de procesar grandes volúmenes de datos. Tras su tratamiento, se genera un algoritmo que permite la visualización de las métricas que llegan al aficionado por medio de Beyond Stats. Estas estadísticas permiten a los aficionados entender mejor por qué su equipo ha ganado un partido, lo ha perdido, o tener una visión panorámica de su rendimiento y expectativas, lo que permite una inmersión inédita en la experiencia del espectador de fútbol.

En todos los estadios de LALIGA encontramos hasta dieciséis cámaras perimetrales fijas de alta resolución para el tracking óptico que siguen en el terreno de juego la situación de jugadores, árbitros y balón, recogiendo datos físicos y técnico-tácticos a un ritmo vertiginoso de 25 veces por segundo.

“Encontramos hasta dieciséis cámaras perimetrales fijas de alta resolución para el tracking óptico”

Estos dispositivos permiten la integración, a través de la herramienta de análisis Mediacoach, de dos tecnologías: tracking y eventing. El tracking se apoya en la información de seguimiento recogida por las cámaras perimetrales del estadio, y permite elaborar métricas como las referidas a distancia recorrida, velocidad máxima y media, o número de sprints. Mediante el eventing se registran los eventos más objetivables: número de pases, córners, o faltas cometidas y recibidas. La información captada a través de tracking y eventing se integra y almacena en el sistema formando un conjunto de datos de gran volumen.
