The Effect of the Early Away Goal in the Champions League Group Stage

Posted on: September 7th, 2016 by Jonny Grossmark

In the table below I have added all the games since 2011-2012 in the Champions League Group Stage where the away teams opened the scoring with a goal in the 0-20 minutes time band, 75% ended over 2.5 goals and 53% ended over 3.5 goals.

Both teams scored in 66% and over 1.5 goals was landed in the first half in 71%

The home teams won 17%, 21% ended a DRAW and the away teams won 62%

38% of the games in the table below produced a goal(s) 80 + minutes
