Hi Guys!!

I think that there are a lot of data driven facts in soccer that we are not aware about them. Those can show us a better way to do some things (like free kicks or corners). With this Infographic I just want to show you 10 data driven facts about soccer, some of them curious and some of them actionable.

Remember: Numbers Don’t Lie!!
