The relative efficiency of UEFA Champions League scorers
The mass media, the football supporters and other experts in many countries are often engaged in the ranking of football players. Given the heterogeneity of various leagues or series in which players play, such a comparison is almost impossible. On the other hand, the performance of players in international tournaments, like the FIFA world cup at the national team level, or the UEFA Champions League at the European Club level, can be measured, if we rely on “objective” measures and statistics. Obviously, since various positions of players are evaluated by different criteria, the heterogeneity is still apparent. In this paper we attempt to evaluate a small subset of a team’s players, namely its scorers, using UEFA:s official match-play statistics from the Champions League tournament 2006/07.
