If you are into football betting, fantasy football or you simply are a football geek you are probably going to spend much time looking for and analysing football statistics. Hopefully this list is going to make your life easier!
10 websites for football statistics
The websites listed in this page are in no particular order. It is possible to access each of them by clicking on the preview image.
Simple Soccer Stats
Simple Soccer Stats features statistics for all the main European leagues, but also for some American leagues and some more “exotic” league like Australian A-League. For each of them it’s possible to find stats on goals, cards, corners, shots, fouls and offside. All the stats are available for the current and previous season and they are presented as tables separating data for home and away matches. The same stats are also available on players of the top leagues.
Another interesting section of the website is the one dedicated to match stats, where it’s possible to find the best teams for betting on classic markets like Over/Under 2.5 goals or Both Team To Score.
SoccerSTATS looks quite basic and outdated, but it provides statistics for most of the world leagues even if the top leagues feature even more stats. All the stats provided by the website are based on goals, but they can be extremely detailed covering half time scores, scores per 10 minutes, lead duration, frequent scores at full time and half time, home/away advantage and many others. Most of the stats are available for the past 4 seasons.
If you need to compare 2 teams to predict the result or the number of goals this is probably the website you need most.
Statbunker offers many statistics on all the main European leagues and for most of them the stats cover the last 10 or more years. For each league there are available stats on goals, results, cards, penalties and many others. All the stats are presented in table form and can be ordered by any field.
Probably the most interesting feature of this website is the possibility to restrict league tables to a specific range of minutes. For example it’s possible to get the table of the Premier League considering only the points for the first 10 or 15 minutes of play.
Footstats provides classic football statistics only on the top European leagues like fouls, corners, cards, goals, etc… but they also provide statistics on the referees for those leagues and detailed statistics on many European clubs.
An interesting feature of the website is the possibility to create form tables based on any number of matches. This can be particularly useful when trying to analyse the form of a team in different stages of the season.
Another interesting feature is the possibility to export all the statistics into Excel format, this can be quite useful for any kind of off-line analysis.
Squawka is probably the most visually appealing website of this list, thanks to its modern and slick design. Despite not providing all the statistics offered by other websites, it offers some interesting numbers like attack/defence scores and several tools for comparing different teams. All this data is provided for the main European leagues, some American leagues and the Australian A-League.
A huge amount of data is also available for previous matches and matches played in real time.
Betstudy provides only the most common statistics like league tables, streaks, half time results, etc… but it does it for most of the world leagues and it is also possible to order all the tables by any field.
The website is simple and clean and it also features predictions on future fixtures.
Accastats is not a traditional website on football statistics like the others in this list, it is more focused on aggregating stats to provide matches which are more likely to generate some specific outcome. For example it is possible to sort all the upcoming fixtures by the probability of a home win or a number of goals scored.
The website also provides many statistics on single teams, but they are mostly based on the number of goals scored/conceded during the current season.
It’s worth to mention that in order to access data on all the 25 leagues followed by the website it is required a free registration, whereas as unregistered user it is possible to access only data for 8 of those leagues.
Football-Data looks more like a big commercial for gambling than a website on football statistics, but if you pay attention you can find some useful data in it. The interesting part of the website is the one titled “Historical Data” where it is possible to find all the classic football statistics on all the main European leagues. It might be surprising, but the stats are not available online, but provided as CSV files to download.
Having files to download makes much easier to use this data with some software or excel pages for your own statistical computations.
Cheeky Punter offers all the main statistics on the main European leagues in table format. Despite a simple design all the information on every league is available in text form in a single page, something which can be useful sometimes. All the tables are static (you can’t order them the way you prefer), but they cover stats on the past season as well.
WhoScored doesn’t provide most of the statistics offered by all the other websites, but it’s the most comprehensive online database on football with data on almost every world league. All the stats you can find on this website are mostly based on players, but many data is aggregated in form of team stats.
A very interesting feature of the website is the huge amount of stats provided for the matches of the detailed tournament and the ratings for players and teams generated in real time during a match.
Football Club Elo Ratings
Football Club Elo Ratings doesn’t offer classic statistics on football, but provides Elo ratings for football clubs of all the main European leagues.
The Elo system was originally invented as a chess rating system, but it’s also used for competitive sports as football and other games. The key concept is that the difference in the ratings between two teams serves as a predictor of the outcome of a match.
What’s the best websites for football statistics?
There’s no such thing as the best website for football statistics as different people might need or prefer different data in different formats. In general it’s always better to use more than one website when researching a specific team/match.
