Time to Shot By World Cup Passing Cluster

Time to Shot is a simple concept explained here at DeepXG’s blog (Thom Lawrence). So I decided to post all the clusters I am using here with the time to shot after each pass. So as you can see the lowest is 217 seconds away on basically a box entry pass while the longest is 335 seconds on a long punt from the goalie. The World Cup was a tournament for right-sided attacking as we saw in the last blog about Germany and Colombia and the numbers aren’t symmetrical, right side seems more effective.

why do teams play so many of those passes in the bottom right? they have lowest TTS and lowest completion%? the obvious answer is they are defensive, so I’ll look at that next. These are those 4 pass types as you all knew already probably
