‘Promoted Team’ Daejeon, it deserves to go well… Goal decision up to 6R K League 1 ‘Best’

If you watch a soccer game, noteworthy phenomena often stand out. There are times when a player who shines exceptionally appears, and there are times when the underdog team becomes a ‘breakout force’. <Best Eleven> intends to analyze this phenomenon with data by collaborating with <Alpha Ball>, a data analysis service of Team Twelve. It is ‘11.5 Lab (Laboratory)’ where Eleven (11) and Twelve (12) met. Team Twelve team leader Kim Dong-hyun (kimdh@team12.co.kr) and reporter Cho Young-hoon wrote it together. <Editor’s Note> 

Round 6 of the 2023 K League 1 is over. Contrary to expectations, 온라인카지노promoted teams Daejeon Hana Citizen and Gwangju FC are in good shape at the beginning of the season. On the other hand, the phenomenon that former powerhouses such as Jeonbuk and Hyundai hardly use their strength is also noticeable. Data was collected up to round 6. Teams that do well, and teams that don’t, have their own reasons.

Daejeon is the team with the most points in the ‘fast run’ of the promoted team . This season, he returns to the K-League 1 stage after 8 years and scores the most points. Gwangju, which was also promoted together, is 5th in scoring with 8 points.

Ulsan Hyundai, FC Seoul, and Pohang Steelers also score stable goals, while Incheon United, Suwon Samsung, Jeju United, and Gangwon FC score less. It’s a tough start.

Incheon, performance was good

Looking at expected goals (xG), not simple points, Incheon had the highest score. In other words, it means that there are often scenes that make an attack scene and lead to the finish, but it does not lead to a goal. If the decision power is improved from the front, the shower goal can burst. On the other hand, Gangwon, which is at the back, is unable to create a scene worthy of an actual goal.

The value obtained by 

subtracting xG from actual goals tells how many goals were scored compared to expectations. Daejeon’s strikers have excellent decision-making power. The top scorer in the Daejeon team is Thiago (4 goals). Next is Seoul, with both teams scoring 5 more goals than expected. The top scorer in Seoul is Na Sang-ho (3 goals).

Gwangju and Daejeon, the center of attack

is Daegu, the team that actually makes the crisis situation less. Allow your opponent the fewest shots. Suwon Samsung is right behind. Compared to actual goals, they tend to concede goals easily. Suwon FC, Gwangju, and Daejeon focus on offense rather than defense.
