Ten parameters were analysed in 1088 matches. Data were analysed in terms of total distance covered (km), run at 2024 km/h (m), sprint distance (m), turnover (number), tackling the ball (number), ball possession (%), pass on target (%), time to retrieve the ball back (sec.) matches no goals allowed (number), matches with no goals scored (number). Data from the matches were obtained by using Sentio Sports Analytic software. The teams that completed the season in the first 5 places were considered as successful, and the teams that completed the season in the last 3 places were considered as unsuccessful. The normality of the data was analysed with the Shapiro-Wilk test and homogeneity of variance was tested with the Levene test. While there is no significant difference in terms of total distance covered, run at 20-24 km/h, sprint distance, turnover and tackling the ball between successful and unsuccessful teams in matches played, a significant difference was found in ball possession, pass on target, time to retrieve the ball back matches no goals allowed, matches with no goals scored.
