A chances is a possibility for a goal to occur, but not all the chances are necessarily regular chances which are 15 chances primarily distributed by comparing ball possession (determined by the midfield rating) .
Apart of these 15 ordinary chances, in a match there are other extraordinary chances to score, called special events.
These are the only chances type that sometimes are not mentioned in a match report.This happens when the opportunity is badly wasted
Before 2010, the regular chances to score distributed among the two teams during a game were 10, but the new match engine generates up to 15 ordinary chances in a match.
- 10 exclusive chances that are allocate or lost:
- 5 for team A, the one with higher midfield rating. 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 are also 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 always allocated in a match:
- 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.
All regular chances are of the following types:
- field chances (85%):
- 35% field chances in the middle,
- 25%/25% field chances on each side (Right/Left),
- 15% set piece chances
- 10% direct free kicks and penalties,
- 5% indirect free kicks.
Note that all free kicks and penalties are counted as ordinary chances, bit corner kicks are counted as special events.
