Tuesday, 4th June 2013 3:37pm
Now that the 2012/13 is completed in Spain, England and Italy its time for a comparison.

The table below shows some stats comparison for the three leagues:

EPL La Liga Serie A
Matches played380380380
Home wins166189177
Home wins % 43.749.746.6
Away wins106107107
Away wins % 27.928.228.2
Drawn % 28.422.125.3

Second half goals598575587
Second half goals %56.352.758.5
Home team goals 592641568
Home team goals % 55.758.856.6
Away team goals 471450435
Away team goals % 44.341.243.4

So the most number of goals were scored in La Liga with 1091 goals.

The Spanish top flight also had the highest percentage of home wins with almost 50 %. Also in that league Real Madrid did not lose a single home match.

Its also interesting to see that the number of away wins is almost the same across the three leagues. La Liga and Serie A have 107 away wins whilst the English Premier League stands at 106.

The goals per game ratio is lowest in Serie A at 2.6 compared to the highest value in La Liga at 2.9.

EPL, La Liga, Serie A compared

Wednesday, 23rd May 2012 1:23pm
Now that the 2011/12 league season is finished in Europe we can compare some of the stats in the leagues with 380 league matches per season.

The English Premier League, La Liga and Serie A have each team playing 38 matches and therefore these leagues can be compared.

The German Bundesliga being an 18 team league has each team playing 34 matches.

Here is some of the stats for the three leagues:

EPL La Liga Serie A
Matches played380380380
Home wins171188171
Home wins % 45.049.545.0
Away wins1169897
Away wins % 30.525.825.5
Drawn % 24.524.729.5
Goalless draws273345
Goalless draws %7.18.711.8
Goals 10661049967
First half goals459446402
First half goals %43.142.541.6
Second half goals607603565
Second half goals %56.957.558.4
Home team goals 604637563
Home team goals % 56.760.758.2
Away team goals 462412404
Away team goals % 43.339.341.8

So the most goals were scored in the EPL with 1066 goals and the least goals in Serie A with 967.

Although the highest scoring team came from La Liga( Real Madrid with 121 goals) the other teams did not score as many goals and hence fewer goals than the EPL.

La Liga had two teams, Real Madrid and Barcelona score more than a hundred goals.

Barca scored a total 114 goals.

The highest scoring team in Serie A was AC Milan with 74 goals and in the EPL Manchester City scored 94 goals.

The lowest scoring team from the three leagues was from Serie A with relegated Cesena scoring only 24 goals.

No team scored less than 30 goals in the EPL with Stoke City scoring 36 goals.

La Liga's lowest scoring team was relegated Real Santander who scored 29 goals.

Its interesting to see that in both Serie A and La Liga the lowest scoring team got relegated but in the EPL but in the EPL Stoke scored the least and way above relegation.

Also in Serie A the team that scored the most goals did not win the league but did so in both the EPL and La Liga.

In all three leagues there were more goals in the second half than first half and there was a higher percentage of home team goals compared to away team goals.

Head-to-head for leagues

Tuesday, 29th September 2009 1:55pm
Starting from the first weekend of October this blog will try to have a post that picks two teams that feature in the coming round and compare their points, goals, clean sheets etc.

For a start this will be for the A-League, English Premiership and the Spanish La Liga.

The Champions League will be drafted in the latter stages because at the moment the teams have just played a single match and therefore there isn't much to show for that.

For this weekend, in the A-League the head-to-head will be for the Adelaide/Newcastle Jets match and for the English Premiership it will be the Chelsea/Liverpool match.

For the Spanish Primera Division it will be the Seville/Real Madrid match.

Europa League to replace Uefa Cup

Saturday, 27th September 2008 6:56pm
From next season the Uefa Cup will be known as the Europa League and its format will be made similar to the Champions League one.

48 teams will form twelve groups of four with the top two from each group plus the third placed Champions League teams going into the knockout phase.

In this format this is a competition that could be featured on TipsChallenge but it will depend on whether a lot of people are interested in the competition.

Increasing to 48 teams is good because it means it will cover more teams and countries but it also means that some of the teams may not be known by many people outside the country they play in.

Now Full Time Analysis

Friday, 8th August 2008 9:11pm
The name of this blog has now been changed from TipsChallenge Blog to Full Time Analysis.

Apart from the name change everything else will remain the same including the url which will remain the same.

I decided that it was better to give the blog its own identity and a name that reflects the kind of posts posted on this blog.

The posts on this blog will predominantly be analysis of goals and varied statistics and so the name Full Time Analysis seems close enough to what this blog is all about.

From time to time there will be TipsChallenge centric posts but the bulk of the posts will continue to be football centric.

2008 AFC Champions League kicks off

Friday, 14th March 2008 5:37pm
The 2008 AFC Champions League kicked off this week as the competition reached its sixth year in its new format.

Unfortunately TipsChallenge will not be running this competition this year but the competition will be considered at some stage in the future.

The AFC Champions League is getting more interesting with the addition of two A-League clubs to the competition and it is promised there will be some changes in the near future.

Unlike the UEFA Champions League where all matches start at the same time save for any being played in Russia, this is not possible for the AFC Champions League because of the different timezones the matches are played in.

One thing that will make the competition even more interesting is when two teams can go to the next round instead of one as it is at the moment.
