The Effect of the Early Away Goal and 0-1 Half Time GAME STATE in the MLS added to the Home Fightback Metric

Posted on: June 23rd, 2016 by Jonny Grossmark

In the table below I have added the last 20 games in the MLS where the away team were winning 1-0 at half time with the opening goal in the 0-20 minutes time band and there was a home fightback ( 1-1 ) with the 2nd goal in the 46-70 minutes time band , and 80% ended over 2.5 goals 

The home teams won 60%, 25% ended a draw and the away team won 15%.

45% of the games produced a goal(s) 80 + minutes
