The 2022/23 UCL Fantasy season has concluded, and now is the time for Fantasy managers to reflect and assess their performance.
When it comes to selecting defenders for our UCL Fantasy team, clean sheet odds and expected clean sheets play a crucial role in our decision-making process. Let’s take a closer look at which teams managed the most clean sheets in the 2022/23 Champions League season and which teams either exceeded or fell short of their defensive expectations based on bookmakers’ odds.
As a quick reminder, prior to each matchday of the 2022/23 season, we utilized our Odds to Probability Calculator to determine the clean sheet odds (the probability of keeping a clean sheet) for all Champions League teams.
This allowed us to create an expected clean sheet table, providing an estimate of the number of clean sheets each team should have achieved compared to their actual clean sheet count.
By calculating the difference between the actual and expected clean sheets, we obtain the delta, which indicates whether a particular team outperformed or underperformed their defensive expectations based on bookmakers’ odds.
