With Dempo SC and Mohammedan Sporting receiving a 3 goal thrashing they lead the chart here while Rangdajied leaking two goals against United SC sadly makes up the top three.

While just the 1st round of Airtel i-League is over, the number of goals of Away Team is significantly higher than the number of goals scored by Home Team.

Amount of Goals Scored by Home Team: 5  (35% of Total Goals Approx.)
Amount of Goals Scored by Away Team: 9  (65% of Total Goals Approx.)

We could have also featured other statistics regarding home and away goals but as it is only the first round, it should not be of any significance.

Lets show you an interesting statistics featuring a 3D Graph showing how the team's scored their goals in regards to the clock.

For an Indian Football fan it is a disheartening figure to know that out of the 14 goals scored only 3 were Indians while the rest 11 goals were scored by foreigners which makes a sorrow figure of only 21% goals were scored by Indians.
