To enhance your experience and understanding when using our platform, it is essential to know the different categories of shots in football. Here, we clarify these differences for you:

thinking_face What are Shots?

Shots include all attempts to score a goal, encompassing shots on target, shots off target, and blocked shots.

 

thinking_face What are Shots on Target?

Shots on Target are attempts to score that:

  • Result in a goal, regardless of the player's intention.
  • Would have resulted in a goal if not defended by the goalkeeper or prevented by the last defender (goal line clearance).
  • Hit the post and enter the goal, being validated as a goal.
  • Are not blocked by a player other than the last defender.

 

thinking_face What are Shots Off Target?

Shots Off Target are attempts to score that:

  • Go over or wide of the goal without touching any player.
  • Would have gone over or wide of the goal if not defended by the goalkeeper or a field player.
  • Hit the post and do not result in a goal.
  • Are not considered defended shots.

 

thinking_face What are Blocked Shots?

Blocked Shots are attempts to score where:

  • The ball is heading towards the goal and is blocked by a field player, with other defenders or the goalkeeper still behind.
  • Are involuntarily blocked by a teammate of the player who shot.
  • Blocks made by the last defender (goal line clearance) are counted as shots on target and not as defended shots.
  • Include direct free kicks on goal or shots that are blocked by the wall or another player.
  • Are goal attempts created directly from the free kick, without the assistance of other players.
