Ahead of the knockout stage which begins this Tuesday, DataRobot approached Data Sports Group to learn if they could predict the Champions League Knockout Stage and the eventual Champions League winner.
DSG's rich coverage for the UCL includes detailed match data, advanced team & player statistics covering 40+ data points, Player Career Stats and more. Using our Premium archive data from past seasons across the top 5 domestic leagues in Europe, DataRobot was able to use previous performance data to generate player ratings and predictions.
The modelling approach & winner predictions is detailed in DataRobot's blog post which can be read here.
