Home advantage - updated on: 20 Nov 2020


The Home Advantage table allows to view, for each team:

  • Points Per Game (PPG) in home matches
  • PPG in away matches
  • difference between Home PPG and Away PPG


The table lists team ranked by points and shows, for each team:

  • Games played at home
  • Games played away
  • Points
  • Points Per Game at home
  • Points Per Game away
  • PPG at home - PPG away

Below is a view of some of the first columns of the Home Advantage table.

The table above only displays a subset of the available columns shown in the Home Advantage table. The Pts column refers to the total points of each team (points at home + points away). The PPG values present on that table are only the Home PPG and the Away PPG. For example, the calculation of the Home PPG is made by dividing the total number of points at home (not shown on this table) by the total number of matches played at home.

Another example of analysis based on PPG values is described in the Relative Performance article.


Points Per Game (PPG)

That value is calculated based on the number of points for each team, divided by the number of matches played by the team.

Home advantage

Difference between the two following values: Points Per Game at home, Points Per Game away

A positive value shows that the team has picked up more points per game on average in home games, than they did in away games.


You can view an example on the Bundesliga Home Advantage page.

Avoiding pitfalls

A high positive Home Advantage value might mean that the team has been very successful at home that season, but it could also mean that, at this stage of the season, the opponents they have played at home might not have been as strong as the opponents they have traveled to.

The team stats page can be used to get an idea as to the level of the teams already played, by looking at the league table on that page, which also lists the results against each opponent already played during the season.

Another interesting table to look at is described on the run-in analysis page, to help evaluate the relative "difficulty" of the games already played by a team.
