An “attempt” includes any effort to put the ball on goal, even if it goes wide or is blocked. The Attempts Ratio (AttRatio) is a team’s own number of attempts divided by that of its opponents, and the Shots-on-goal Ratio (SGRatio) can be interpreted in the same way, but only for attempts that are on frame. An average team has a ratio of 1.0, indicating that it produces the same number of shots that it gives up.  The Finishing Rates (FinishF is finishing for, FinishA is finishing against) are calculated by dividing goals by attempts.
