The regression line goal-difference ($g_d$) vs. xGoal-Differenz ($xG_{d}$): $$ g_d = g_0 + \alpha \cdot xG_{d} $$ is shown in blue. A high efficiency corresponds to a slope $\alpha>1$, $\alpha<1$ to a low efficiency. The axis section $g_0$ indicates how many goals a team scores in games with equal scoring chances ($xG_{G}\simeq 0$). The larger the axis segment, the more often the team has won, conversely a large negative axis segment means that tight games are more often lost. This number is an indication of luck or skill.
