One pass is not the other: a data-driven overview of the most effective passers in European football

02/01/18 | SciSports

In this blog, we introduce a novel football metric that helps football clubs in their search for players who are expected to yield a positive contribution to the results of their matches. We focus on valuing passes since passes represent about 70 percent of all on-the-ball actions during a match. Our football metric assigns a value to each individual pass based on its effectiveness.

Our machine learning-based approach leverages a large amount of historical match data to accurately value each pass.
