The match ratings page gives managers an overall comparison of the teams involved in a match. The match ratings page becomes available for viewing after the match has completed.
Please keep in mind that the numerical match ratings are intended only as a guide for comparing the rough skill levels of teams and to track the improvement of your own team over time. Tactics and luck play a significant part when determining the result of a match, so it is quite possible that the team with lower match ratings will be the winner on any given day.
Match ratings are affected by experience, fatigue and form, so you will commonly see fluctuations in match ratings
during the season even when using the same lineup.
The effects of fatigue are ignored when calculating match ratings in friendly matches, with all players assumed to be at 'rested' fatigue.
Each aspect of the match ratings page is described in further detail below.
