Computer Football Predictions Based On Hidden Results

Did you know that you could use Excel to create predictions for football matches?

You can make computer predictions based on match statistics.  Then you can test these predictions in the world of football results and top class goals.

Depending on the results you can decide to continue or not. My own study was not based on match results.

I used MS Excel macros to make predictions. Based on stats I calculated the power ratings, offence and defence values of various footballers.

Using these values I make 1000 virtual matches adding some random actions in addition to ratings mentioned above. As a result I can reach some predictions.  However, I am not sure that I would bet on any of these predictions!
