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)[1].

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

Chances distribution

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.

Field chances

Field chances may either be on the right, the middle or on the left. The possibility for a goal depends on the attack ratings on that part of the field, compared to the opponent's defense ratings.

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.


  1. ^  Team spirit and possession have a great effect on chances. 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.
