The "Main" category contains all the tabs that allow you to get the main information about the shape of the teams.
This card displays a form ranking of the selected teams. Respectively it is divided into three sections:
- A: Total form values.
- At home: form values obtained at home.
- On the move: form values obtained on the road.
To navigate through the various sections use the vertical scroll bar available on the right side of the tab.
The columns are divided into the following values:
- Pos: position of the team in the form ranking.
- Team: name of the team.
- D: represents the difference between the goal against and scored.
- Points: points obtained by the team.
- W: number of games won.
- D: number of matched matches.
- L: number of games lost.
- SE: number of goals scored.
- SU: number of goal suffered.
Summary Form Teams
This card contains a table divided into three sections:
- First section: contains information about the shape of the team playing at home.
- Central section: contains the summary form elaborated by the program evaluating the form parameters of the two teams.
- Final section: contains information about the shape of the team playing away.
As you can see, this card shows you the team that is more in shape than the two. This way you will not have to manually analyze the data, but SoccerForecast will automatically tell you which team is the most powerful.
This card also provides a filter. By default, the software evaluates the form of the two teams by examining the last ten matches.
If you want to evaluate the shape of the teams by analyzing more matches, set the value you prefer in the filter:
As always, click on "Apply" to save the new parameters and wait for the new processing.
The "Form Status" tab allows you to evaluate the shape of the two teams through a graph.
In the following example, we evaluated the performance of the teams "Barcelona vs Atlético Madrid":
Probably the chart will be unclear to you, but you only need to understand how it is built by the software and how to read it.
First of all SoccerForecast takes into account the number of matches specified by the filter (by default it will evaluate the progress of the last six matches played).
For each game the program memorize the points obtained by the team based on the result of the match played.
Multiply then the points conquered with the number of the day currently in iteration.
Each day is therefore represented by a point respectively from the least recent (point 0, corresponds to the first day evaluated), the most recent (point 5, corresponds to the last day evaluated, which in the example is the sixth).
Basically, a growing line indicates that the team is going through a good period of shape, while a decreasing line indicates a non-positive period.
We take as a reference point the image at the top, we will notice that the barcelona (blue line) begins the trend with a draw (point 0), then with a win, and then again with another tie.
Points 3 and 4 indicate a victory and then a draw respectively, finally point 5 indicates a victory, to the detriment of Atlético's defeat.
Each point will show a different sum based on the number of the day and the points won. In the case of the first day (point 0), barcelona has equalized, so if you overlap the mouse on the 0 point related to the Barcelona, you will get "1" which indicates the number of points obtained by multiplying the evaluated day, ie the first of six in evaluation .
Similarly if you overlap, as done in the image, the mouse on point 2 (which corresponds to the third day), you will get 3, in fact the Barcelona has equalized so the software will perform this calculation: points earned for the third day x number of the day in evaluation = 1 x 3 = 3.
On the contrary, in the case of Atlético (red line), we will get 9 points because the Atlético has won and then the software will calculate as follows: 3 (points conquered) x 3 (day number), thus returning 9.
As you can see once the logic happens, the reading of the chart becomes very simple, becoming at the same time a very powerful tool to give you a clear idea of the progress of a team.
You can however evaluate more matches, for example, suppose you want to evaluate the performance of "Barcelona vs Atlético Madrid" in the last 15 games of "Copa del Rey" played at home, you will apply this configuration in the filter:
The chart will be composed as follows:
A quick reading of the chart suggests that the "Barcelona" has a better shape than the Atlético Madrid, which has a fluctuating trend.
