We have some very exciting news to announce from our soccer site: FBref now has goal logs! The logs include detailed notes on the goal, including broad information like the opponent, scoreline, and competition, as well as more in-depth information when available like what minute they scored, the distance from the goal, the preceding action that set up the shot, and even the part of the body they used to take the shot.
If you're curious to see what that looks like, here's how Erling Haaland's hat trick from last weekend looks in the goal log:
|1||2022-08-27||Premier League||Matchweek 4||Home||Manchester City||Crystal Palace||Y||Left Foot||13||81||3-2||Vicente Guaita||İlkay Gündoğan||İlkay Gündoğan||Pass (Live)||Phil Foden||Pass (Live)|
|2||2022-08-27||Premier League||Matchweek 4||Home||Manchester City||Crystal Palace||Y||Left Foot||3||70||2-2||Vicente Guaita||John Stones||John Stones||Shot||Open goal|
|3||2022-08-27||Premier League||Matchweek 4||Home||Manchester City||Crystal Palace||Y||Head||6||62||1-2||Vicente Guaita||Phil Foden||Phil Foden||Pass (Live)||Kevin De Bruyne||Pass (Live)|
In addition to goal logs for players, we also have them for clubs.
Have fun exploring this new feature, and stay tuned for more updates to the FBref, coming in the months ahead!
