Airtel i-League 2013-14: Round 2 Statistics

We are back again with our statistical discussion of Airtel i-League after we have successfully compiled the stats for Round 1 a week earlier.

In Airtel i-League Round 2, a total of 9 goals were scored 5 less than round 1 but the good news this time is that 5 out of the 9 goals were scored by Indians which shows a commendable increment on the share of the goals scored by Indians with regards to the total goals scored.

This make us realize how the Indian have contributed to total number of goals each time around. The inner circle represents the total goals in Round 1 while the outer circle represents the same in round 2. The you can easily witness the increase in the share of the blue zone in the second circle (Round 2) with respect to the share in the first circle, which means that Indians have contributed almost double the amount of goals in this round.

With 5 goals in two games, United SC are sitting at the top while new entrants Bengaluru FC are in a surprising second position. Pune FC and Shillong FC complete the top four with 3 goals each to their name after the goal-less draw at Shillong.

As a league, i-League averages 2.09 goals per game, United SC despite all the "off-field" concerns have a 2.5 goals per game ratio in terms of scoring, while Bengaluru FC after their two home games have 2 goals per game scoring ratio.

On the defensive side, Rangdajied United FC, despite their creditable comeback against Dempo SC have a defensive concern on their hands leaking 5 goals in two matches while Dempo SC(4 goals) and Sporting Clube de Goa(4 goals) have also got their strategies to fix.

Home vs Away Goal:

Amount of Goals scored by Home Team: 12
Amount of Goals scored by Away Team: 11

This part of the statistics have also seen a greater difference than Round 1 as only 2 goals were scored by travelling team this time around.

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

We will now quickly move on to players statistics to see which players have scored the goals.

Raul Fabiani(Pune FC), Ranti Partins(USC), Eric Brown(USC), Cornell Glenn(SLFC) and Sean Rooney(BFC) are all sharing the top spot with 2 goals each to their name.
