Powering the most accurate xG in the industry

StatsBomb's Expected Goals (xG) model uses more contextual events and better quality data than any other provider to accurately measure the quality of chances

Contact us to learn more xG Explained

Goalkeeper location

Our freeze-frame functionality records the location and stance of the goalkeeper on every shot, materially improving the accuracy of our model

Defender location

The location of all visible defenders and attackers on every shot is also accurately recorded in each freeze-frame

Shot impact height

We record the impact height of every shot, adding further detail and nuance to our model

Post shot xG

Calculated after the shot, taking account of shot placement. Most useful in assessing goalkeeper performance

A unique data spec


We are the only data provider that collects accurate pressure at an event level, allowing analysis of how players and teams press as well as how they perform under pressure

On-Ball Value (OBV)

Created by our world-class data science department, OBV determines the value of every action that takes place on the football pitch - that can only be accessed via StatsBomb

Pass footedness and pass height

Going beyond the start and end location, knowing which foot and what height the pass is played at adds important context and creates a clearer picture of the game being played

The cutting-edge work of data scientists is at your fingertips. They have already delivered models including OBV, Passing, Headers and Goalkeeping in our data and more is coming soon
