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

Posted on: October 20th, 2016 by Jonny Grossmark

In the table below I have added all the games in the Europa League Group Stage since 2013-2014 where the away teams opened the scoring with a goal in the 0-20 minutes time band , 70% ended over 2.5 goals and 40% ended over 3.5 goals

Both teams scored in 75% and over 1.5 goals was landed in the first half in 67%

The home teams won 28%, 25% ended a DRAW and the away teams won 47% < some expectation of the home teams fighting back.
