Seasonal Linear Predictivity in National Football Championships

Predicting the results of sport matches and competitions is a growing research field, benefiting from the increasing amount of available data and novel data analytics techniques. Here, we show that despite the large number of confounding factors, the results of a football team in longer competitions (e.g., a national league) follow a basically linear trend that is also useful for predictive purposes. In support of this claim, we present a set of experiments of linear regression compared to alternative approaches on a database collecting the yearly results of 746 teams playing in 22 divisions spanning up to five different levels from 11 countries, in 25 football seasons, for a total of 181,160 matches grouped in 9386 seasonal time series.
