Match Analysis

Why is it important to know the statistics during the game?

Why is it not enough to know the statistics that describe an individual player’s performance?

Tracking numbers that show overall team performance can be complicated, but without them, it is sometimes difficult for a coach to make good decisions because events on the field change quickly.

Elverum won a point because they were extremely efficient in the second half or Zagreb’s defense slowed down, however, the game in the attack also had an impact on the final result.

Obranović played left-back, and it is interesting how the team was most efficient when  Vistorop 56% or 10/18 played on the centre back (although his individual performance was below average: shot 1/3 + 1 turnover).

When Hrstić and Klis were on the centre back, the team performance was 40% or 4/10 (each individually 2/5), and each of them had better individual statistics than Vistorop:

Hrstić 1/2 + 1 technical error

Klis 1/1

On the position of the right-back there is also significant difference:

When Leimeter played the team performance was 56% or 5/9, and when Klarica played 47% or 8/17 even though Klarica shot 1/1 better than Leimeter 1/2.

When all this is considered, we get a better idea of the performance of back players, which is also shown in the attached picture. In the second half, the Zagreb team was the most successful when back players combination was: Obranović – Vistorop – Leimeter 63% or 5/8.

During the match, the coach cannot see 10% greater or less team efficiency between two players, and on about 50 possessions the difference in the final result is 5 goals.
