WELL-OILED MACHINE
  • Indy Eleven has established themselves over the past two seasons as one of the best offensive teams in the NASL. Since the start of last season, they are one of two teams averaging more than 1.3 goals per game (IND - 1.6) played in the regular season (NYC - 1.7).
  • Indy has also proven to be especially deadly on set pieces, where they have scored more goals off of than any other team in the league since the start of last season. It should come as little surprise that the team also leads the league in headed goals over that same time frame (12).
  • What makes Indy so dangerous is that the team never seems to slow down, scoring almost as many goals in the first half of games (26) as they do in the second half (29) since the start of last season. Additionally, 15 of the 55 goals Indy has scored in regular season play over that time frame have come in the final 15 minutes of games, the second-most of any team in the league (NYC - 16).
