Revolutionizing Bundesliga: Shot Speed Metric


On the occasion of Matchday 10 in the Bundesliga, a significant development emerged as the DFL (Deutsche Fußball Liga) and AWS (Amazon Web Services) jointly introduced a new metric known as Shot Speed. This metric stands as the 15th installment of the Bundesliga Match Fact (BMF) series powered by AWS. Shot Speed is designed to quantify and highlight one of the most pivotal factors in football – the speed at which a player’s shot is delivered, a key element that can often make the difference in a player’s ability to overcome a goalkeeper and score goals.

To provide fans with real-time insights and a deeper understanding of the game, shot speed is now featured in live blogs and the official Bundesliga app. Specifically, this data is presented on goal cards when the shot speed exceeds 70 kilometers per hour, offering a fascinating dimension to the viewing experience.

On the recent Matchday 10, the Bundesliga witnessed some exceptional instances of shot speed in action. The standout moment came when Anton Stach, playing for Hoffenheim, unleashed a thunderous shot in their 3-2 contest against league leaders Bayer Leverkusen. Stach’s strike recorded a remarkable 113 kilometers per hour, making it the fastest goal of the weekend. What makes this goal even more astonishing is that Stach was positioned an impressive 41 meters away from the opposition’s goal when he took the shot, catching Bayer Leverkusen’s goalkeeper, Lukáš Hrádecký, off his line. This incredible feat occurred 56 minutes into the game and served as a testament to the power and precision that Shot Speed brings to the forefront, adding an extra layer of excitement and analysis to the beautiful game.

Additionally, the distance to the goal is another insightful Match Fact now made available to football enthusiasts, further enriching their understanding of the dynamics at play during a match. It’s worth noting that Harry Kane, Bayern Munich’s celebrated star striker, earned a place in the top five performers on Matchday 10. Kane’s exceptional performance included a hat-trick in Bayern’s convincing 4-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the highly anticipated Der Klassiker clash. One of Kane’s goals, the third of his hat-trick, was a rocket that blazed past Borussia Dortmund’s goalkeeper, Gregor Kobel, at a speed of 109 kilometers per hour. This spectacular goal occurred just three minutes into injury time and exemplified how shot speed can play a defining role in the outcome of a football match.

In sum, the introduction of Shot Speed as the latest addition to the Bundesliga Match Fact series powered by AWS represents an exciting development in football analytics, providing fans with a more profound appreciation of the game’s nuances and the incredible athleticism displayed by players. This innovative metric adds a new layer of excitement and engagement for football enthusiasts, underlining the ever-evolving landscape of football analysis and enhancing the fan experience in the Bundesliga.
