Finally, 2020 is coming to an end. Despite everything that has happened during the year, it seems that the interest in sports has not decreased, and based on our observations, it can be said that it has even increased. People are hungry for sports, which means that they are looking for more and more new information and knowledge. We can assume that this is also why we have noticed significant changes in the most read articles on STATSCORE’s blog. In comparison to the last year’s ranking, only two articles maintained their presence in TOP 5.

This article from over two years ago seems to not be getting older. We gathered in it five unusual stats in football matches which can have a significant impact on the final results. A specific collection of curiosities for fans and beginner tipsters. Last year in our annual summary, this text took the 4th place but had fewer reads than it has had this year. It’s just because its ‘competitors’ are getting stronger!
This article was the last to be published and make the TOP 5 list. It was published in April but this did not prevent it from getting an impressive number of reads. We expect to see increasing interest in this text among football fans. It can be still one of the texts dominating this ranking at the end of 2021. It would not be an accident, after all, the article breaks down the first aspect of possession during a football match. There is an outline of the story, ways of counting, or the impact of ball possession on the final results.
This is the second article which maintained its position from last year. What’s more, in 2019 it also finished in the 3rd position. Shot conversion is a little bit different than the “expected goals”, a measure that has lately become very popular. It is based on the effectiveness of taking shots on goal. You can find more detailed description inside!
Passes are the most basic play in the football. Today many kinds of passes are distinguished by coaches, experts and fans. In our article, you can find information on some of them and also get answers for questions such as: how many passes are made during a football game?
Here comes the real leader. The article which attracted the most readers during the year. And it was only published in March, making it the second-youngest article in this ranking. This text totally dominated the rest of the stake by the number of reads. American sports are certainly very popular worldwide, and the great interest people have in them has been reflected by the number of readers of our article. Now there is nothing else to do but look forward to the imminent return of the NBA, the NHL and start of the NFL playoffs!
