Definitions of individual stats are as below, data provided by Opta Sports:

Goal/Own Goal: Different governing bodies have different rules, and where possible Opta works with the relevant associations to reflect their official decisions on goal scorers.

Regarding deflections, normally a goal is awarded if the original attempt is on target. An own goal is usually awarded if the attempt is off target and deflected into the goal by an opponent.

Shot on target: A shot on target is defined as any goal attempt that:

  • Goes into the net regardless of intent.
  • Is a clear attempt to score that would have gone into the net, but for being saved by the goalkeeper or is stopped by a player who is the last man (with the goalkeeper having no chance of preventing the goal - last line block).

Shots directly hitting the frame of the goal are not counted as shots on target unless the ball goes in and is awarded as a goal.

Shots blocked by another player, who is not the last man, are not counted as shots on target.

Shot off target: A shot off target is defined as any clear attempt to score that:

  • Goes over or wide of the goal without making contact with another player.
  • Would have gone over or wide of the goal but for being stopped by a goalkeeper's save or by an outfield player.
  • Directly hits the frame of the goal and a goal is not scored.

Blocked shots are not counted as shots off target.

Blocked Shot: A blocked shot is defined as any clear attempt to score that:

  • Is going on target and is blocked by an outfield player, where there are other defenders or a goalkeeper behind the blocker.

Includes shots blocked unintentionally by the shooter’s own teammate.

Clearances off the line by an opposition player (last line blocks) are counted as shots on target and do not get counted as a blocked shot.

Location for Goals/Shots: The position of the ball when the shot is taken (shot origin).

  • Inside or outside the 6-yard box.
  • Inside or outside the 18-yard box

Any event happening on a line will be considered inside that area. For example, a shot on the 18-yard line will count as being inside the box.

Goal Assist: The final touch (pass, pass-cum-shot or any other touch) leading to the recipient of the ball scoring a goal. If the final touch (as defined in bold) is deflected by an opposition player, the initiator is only given a goal assist if the receiving player was likely to receive the ball without the deflection having taken place. Own goals, directly taken free kicks, direct corner goals and penalties do not get an assist awarded.

Pass: Any intentional played ball from one player to another. Passes include open play passes, goal kicks, corners and free kicks played as pass – but exclude keeper throws and throw-ins. Crosses are considered passes when calculating the total passes.

Cross: Any intentional played ball from a wide position intending to reach a teammate in a specific area in front of the goal.

Hit Woodwork: Hit woodwork is given in situations where the ball hits the frame of the goal, except goals that hit the frame before going into the net. Any shot that hits the frame multiple times (e.g., bar and left post) only count as hitting the woodwork once.

Hit woodwork is always collected for the attacking team (and the player, who performed the last action), even when the ball hits the frame coming from a defensive back pass.

Tackle: A tackle is defined as where a player connects with the ball in a ground challenge where he successfully takes the ball away from the player in possession.

The tackled player must clearly be in possession of the ball before the tackle is made.

It is not a tackle, when a player cuts out a pass by any means.

Offside: Awarded to the player deemed to be in an offside position where a free kick is awarded. If two or more players are in an offside position when the pass is played, the player considered to be most active and trying to play the ball is given offside.

Corner (won, lost and taken): When the ball has left the field of play resulting in a corner. A corner won is collected for the team being awarded a corner, and corner lost for the team conceded a corner for the opposition team. A corner taken is added when the player taking the corner has carried out the action, usually a cross or a pass.

Goal Kick: This is awarded to the team/player taking a goal kick.

Throw-In: This is awarded to the team/player taking a throw-in.

Cards: Cards are collected as yellow, 2nd yellow or red card.

Bookings: Bets are settled based on the following:

  • Yellow card = 1 booking
  • Red card = 2 bookings
  • Maximum bookings per player = 3 (e.g., 2 yellow cards resulting in a red card)

Bets are settled by adding the points per card issued within 90 minutes:

  • Yellow card = 10 points
  • Red card = 25 points
  • Maximum points per player = 35 points

Both teams to score: A prediction on both teams to score a goal in the match. Own goals do count for this market.
