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

Posted on: September 29th, 2016 by Jonny Grossmark

In the table below I have added all the games since 2012-2013 in the Europa League Group Stage where the home teams opened the scoring with a goal in the 0-10 minutes time band , 67% ended over 2.5 goals and 49% ended over 3.5 goals

The home teams won 57%, 28% ended a DRAW and the away teams won 15% < some expectation of the away teams fighting back .

Both teams scored in 67% and over 1.5 goals was landed in the first half in 64%

1-0 half time in the table below,  and  59% ended OVER 2.5 goals
