Analyzing Spanish Football League using SAP Lumira

Hi all,

I used SAP Lumira to analyze the information on the Spanish Football League 2012/13 and to show it using tables and diagrams easy to understand and visually attractive for the user.

In this first image we can see the Table of the Spanish Football League last season (top 10 teams) including the following fields:

– Points
– Matches Played
– Matches Drawn
– Matches Lost
– Goals For
– Goals Against
– Yellow Cards
– Red Cards

As can be seen in the table, last season Winner was FC Barcelona with a total of 100 points in 38 matches:

The following chart shows the points scored by each team. I wanted to highlight the team of which I am follower: Atlético de Madrid 😉 

This diagram shows the goals for and against of each team (lines) and the goal difference (bars). This last measure was calculated using a formula ({Goals For}-{Goals Against}).

The following chart shows the teams in decreasing order by number of goals scored. As can be seen, the highest scoring team was the League Winner with 115 goals:

The following chart is related to the Fair Play. It shows the teams sorted ascending by the number of cards received (another measure calculated using a formula: {Yellow Cards} + {Red Cards}). As can be seen, also the Champion of Fair Play was FC Barcelona:

The following bar chart shows the top scorers in the League. F.C.Barcelona player Leo Messi ranks first with 46 goals followed by Cristiano Ronaldo with 34:

Finally, the following chart shows the best goalkeeping in this case Courtois, Atletico Madrid goalkeeper, with 29 Goals Allowed:

And this concludes our analysis of the Spanish Football League 2012/13 performed with SAP Lumira. A tool to analyze the information in a fast, simple and self-service way, without being necessary IT´s help.

Best Regards,

Carlos
