Football Match Statistics Prediction using Artificial Neural Networks

pdf PDF


The predictions of the outcomes of football (American soccer) matches are widely done using the if-else case based Football Result Expert System (FRES). The proposed prediction technique uses a neural network approach to predict the results of football matches. The neural network detects patterns from a number of factors affecting the outcome of a match making use of historical cases of training. This paper describes the inputs, outputs and compares the results of this kind of a system
