Emobot7 1 year ago 401 9901 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?
