Data-driven scouting isn't just for big clubs any more – now anyone can do it!

All smarterscout users get access to these metrics:

  • minutes played at each position
  • attacking contribution based on two models of expected goals
  • defending contribution based on two models of expected goals
  • ball retention
  • eight aspects of playing style
  • skills in aerial and ground duels
  • shooting and saving skill
  • shot quality and scoring metrics
  • statistics on involvement in moves leading to shots and goals
  • fantasy league metrics including average minutes played, simulated scoring, and team goals conceded – all home and away

Users can search our database with these metrics or by using a specific player as a model. It's also easy to compare players side-by-side with our visuals. All users can use our unique smartermaps to see where players touch the ball and the actions they attempt. Premium and Pro users get access to our shot maps as well.

On player profiles and search results pages, Premium and Pro users can see badges for high performers, breakout seasons, and young prospects flagged by our proprietary algorithms calibrated against a decade of player debuts in Europe's top leagues. Pro users can filter their searches with these badges, as well as using our AI-based smartersearch tool and seeing all the metrics for an entire squad on one screen. Pro users also have access to our exclusive xGAR (expected goals above replacement) metrics.

smarterscout is free for Lite members, who get five searches and player profiles every day at no charge.
