@inproceedings{Carpita2014FootballMW, title={Football Mining with R}, author={M. Carpita and Marco Sandri and Anna Simonetto and P. Zuccolotto}, year={2014} }

This chapter presents a data mining process for investigating the relationship between the outcome of a football match (win, lose, or draw) and a set of variables describing the actions of each team, using the R environment and selected R packages for statistical computing. The analyses were implemented with parallel computing when possible. Our goals were to identify, from hundreds of covariates, those that most strongly affect the probability of winning a match and to construct a small numberâ€¦Â Expand
