World Cup: Group H Passing and Shooting Stats

Getty Images

Group H was the lowest-scoring group of the eight, mostly due to its low shooting percentage:

Passes/G Weighted Avg Shots/G Goals/G Shot%
Group G 360 79.38 22.1 9.33 0.67 7.14
Overall 355 75.88 21.4 10.78 1.05 9.76

Spain displayed complete dominance in the possession department:

Passes For Weighted Vs Weighted % of Pass
Spain 1752 399.5 702 139.7 71.4
Chile 1049 227.8 950 200 52.5
Switzerland 793 173.9 1292 297.6 38.0
Honduras 720 151.4 1370 315.3 34.4

It was purely bad luck that cost Spain their game against Switzerland - they outshot the Swiss 21-5 and had no shortage of dangerous opportunities close to Switzerland's goal. As usual, sometimes the ball doesn't bounce your way.

There's no question that both Chile and Spain dominated the shooting against the Swiss and the Hondurans:

Shots F Goals Sh% Shots A Goals Sh%
Spain 42 4 9.52 15 2 13.33
Chile 36 3 8.33 15 2 13.33
Switzerland 21 1 4.76 39 1 2.56
Honduras 13 0 0.00 43 3 6.98

Ultimately, the best two teams advanced from this group despite the Swiss shocker against Spain.
