Saturday's match against the Tottenham Hotspur (Bill Simmons' favorite team, at one brief moment in history) might be a friendly, but that doesn't make it unworthy of some match-up graphic action.
Since it is a friendly, however, I'm approaching things a bit differently. This post is just the kickoff for a Three-Part Infographic Party!
Today, let's take a look at some key team stats as we get this party started! Now, let's be honest: we're comparing apples (MLS) to oranges (BPL) here. That point aside, our teams match up quite well on "paper." I am loving the fact that "Aerial duels" are a weakness of the Spurs. The team won just 46 percent of duels in the air last season.
We also score more goals per game, and are tied on goals allowed. Check that out!
This is the least exciting of the graphics planned for you; stay tuned for additional Tottenham Hotspur matchup graphics!
