Before the semifinals of soccer Champions League (season 2014/2015) were played, we had a closer data driven look on their players: how many goals did they score, how many successful passes did they achieve? Our graphics give a very good impression at first sight of their attack and defence behavior. How many million Euros did the clubs invest to build their teams, and how many trophys do the players have? Fun fact is the running performance; some field players have a "mileage" per game that's only the double of a goalie. Full credit: Julian Stahnke, Sascha Venohr and Oliver Fritsch
