In soccer games, scoring is a very important factor in determining the team’s winning and ranking. Depending on the situation of the game, the contribution of each score to the winning game in soccer can vary. Even if each player scores a different number of goals in a particular game, the tactics of the game can vary depending on the situation, and the psychological aspect can dominate the game. In this study, we used the K - league games played between 2013 and 2017 to study the contribution of the goal of winning the game.
