Resum

In this paper, we are concerned about the analysis of one of the most extended sports, football (soccer in U.S. terminology) since it allows addressing different aspects of the team organization and performance not captured by classical analyses based on the performance of individual players. The reason behind relies on the complex nature of the game, which, paraphrasing the foundational paradigm of complexity sciences. The recent ability of obtaining datasets of all events occurring during a match allows analysing and quantifying the behavior of a team as a whole, together with the role of each single player. Under this framework, the organization of a team can be considered as the result of the interaction between its players, creating passing networks.
