"Xg chain value / 90 min Xg is a very cool metric! We measure which players contribute most to a goal – so we analyse the entire goal chain! Each player who is involved in the goal chain gets a certain value – depending on how significant his contribution was. In the end, we will get the Xg value per 90 min, and you can see who is the most critical player to build up a goal."
