Something I wanted to do for a while now was to compare world cup 2018 to world cup 2014 in term of stat. Here I go!

Total number of goal:
169 in WC 2018 and 171 in WC 2014

Penality Awarded (and scored):
29 (22) in WC 2018 and 13 (12) in WC 2014

Total Own Goal:
12 in WC 2018 and 5 in WC 2014

Most goal scored by a team:
16 goal scored by Belgium in 2018 and 18 scored by Germany in 2014

Best goal difference by a team:
+10 by Belgium in 2018 and +14 by Germany in 2014

Worst goal difference:
-9 by Panama in 2018 and -8 by Cameroon in 2014

Total Number of Yellow Card:
219 in 2018 and 187 in 2014

Total Number of Red Card:
4 in 2018 and 10 in 2014

Anyway, what I conclude from all of this is that while they were still a lot of goal in 2018 world cup, a lot more of them came from own goal or from penality. Also, it sure felt like Belgium was one of the most dominating team of the tournament. But what do you think about those stat yourself?

Almost half the goals in 2018 were from set-pieces... very bland football by most teams outside of Belgium and occasionally France.

@Dyn True that mate, goes to show defense are making it very hard to score goal in open play. Meanwhile, team who have perfected freekick and penality kick are rewarded. Will this be the evolution of football?
