In winner teams the players started in first 5 scored 50 goals (56.8%) and players joined from bench scored 38 goals (43.2%) and in defeated teams the first 5 scored 21 goals (60%) and the players joined from bench scored only 14 goals (40%). Winner teams while playing with flying keeper has scored 1 goal (16.7%) and conceded no goal; also, the defeated teams have scored 5 goals (83.3%) and conceded 13 goals when flying keeper in game. Substitutions in winner teams scored 133 goals, in defeated teams only 31 goals were scored by substitutions. As a result; accurate shots on goal, scoring in between 36-40th minutes, starting in first 5 and also joining from bench are accepted as an important factor to win a match, but despite providing an advantage of attacking with more player, the flying keeper tactic is not considered an effective element of winning the game according to the analysis of the data.
