Juventus vs. Napoli — visualizing next games
As we go towards the last 9 games in Serie A here is another small experiment on data visualization.
Let’s look at how the two top teams who are in the lead for the “Scudetto” this season, Juventus and Napoli, are approaching the next games.
As a way to udnerstand which of the two teams . will have the most difficult path we have taken into consideration the number of points in the league of each opponent and created a small chart about it.
With this stat the higher the points the more difficult it is for the team.
At high level Juventus has a slighter tougher path with a total of 371 against 355 for Napoli. The last 4 matches (apart from Bologna) are all quite challenging.
We clearly can make this more sophisticated creating and index that take into considerations other aspects and maybe the latest part of the season only or in addition.
Any ideas welcome.
