A chance is distributed by comparing ball possession, which is determined by the midfield rating. Each of these chances is a possibility for a goal to occur. Not all the chances are necessarily mentioned in the match report.
Originally, regular chances to score distributed among the two teams during a game were 10, but the new match engine may generate up to 15 ordinary chances in a match:
- 5 exclusive chances for team A. If team A’s midfield rating is higher than the opponent’s one, the probability of team A to be allocated such a chance increases. If such a chance won’t be allocated, the chance will be lost.
- 5 exclusive chances for team B. If team B’s midfield rating is lower than the opponent’s one, the probability of team B to lose that chance increases. However, team A won’t get that chance instead.
- 5 open chances - the team with a higher midfield rating has a bigger probability to be allocated such a chance. If one team is not allocated one of these chances, the opponent will get it instead.
Apart of these 15 ordinary chances, in a match there are other extraordinary chances to score, called special events.
Regular chances are distributed as they follow:
35% in the middle 25% on each side (R/L) 15% free kicks (direct and indirect FK)
Free kicks and penalties are counted as ordinary chances. Corner kicks are counted as special events.
There are 2 types of regular chances:
- field chances
- set piece chances
Set piece chances
Set piece chances are either penalties or free kicks. The home team has a greater chance of getting these. They will be taken by the person you have named under Set pieces in your line-up. The chance for a goal depends on the set piece taker's set pieces skill and the goalkeeping skill of the opposing keeper.
Team spirit and possession on chances
A good help to win a match is the team spirit. Having a high TS it’s helpful to your midfield rating. The most possession you have, the most chances to score you’ll get. A coach with a high leadership will help you to avoid losing too quick the TS.
