Football - the most mathematical of sports. From shot statistics and league tables to the geometry of passing and managerial strategy, the modern game is filled with numbers, patterns and shapes. How do we make sense of these? The answer lies in the mathematical models applied in biology, physics and economics. 'Soccermatics' brings football and mathematics together in a mind-bending synthesis, using numbers to help reveal the inner workings of the beautiful game.
