The Sorare Matrix: How Do Players Score Points In Sorare SO5

Sorare is a global fantasy football game where you can collect your favourite players and use them in tournaments to win prizes, but how do the players score points? In this article, we will analyse Sorare’s scoring matrix in detail.

The Sorare Matrix: How Do Players Score Points In Sorare SO5

The Player Score

Let’s start with the basics.

The score of a player is determined by how well the player performs in real life during the course of the game, with points ranging from 0 to 100.

There are two  components that make up the score, Decisive Score (DS) and All Around Score (AA).

Decisive Scores are based on statistics that directly affect the match result, such as a goal, an assist, or a clean sheet.

All Around Scores take into account smaller statistics, such as passes made, possessions lost, and shots on target

Here we have the example of Andrew Farrell:

  • Decisive Score: 35 + All Around Score: 36.5 = Player Score: 72 (rounded up)
  • From this we can deduce that Farrell Didn’t need to have a decisive decision to have a good game-week as his overall score makes up for it.

Next up we have the example of Lewandowski

  • Decisive Score: 60 + All Around Score: 15 = Player Score: 75
  • From this we can deduce that Lewandowski Didn’t have a great All around  score but by scoring a decisive goal he still scores well.

The Decisive Score (DS)

The Decisive Score can be broken down into its components

  •  Every player will begin on level 0
  • Every player that starts the match with a score of 35. A substitute will also begin on level 0 but will start on 25 points
  • Thereafter, every player will be able to move up a level for every positive action they are involved in, and to move down a level for every negative action.

In this table, we can see the Decisive Score levels, points accrued, as well as whether a score is guaranteed.

Decisive Level System
Level Points Guaranteed
-1 15 NO
0 35 (25 if on as a sub) NO
1 60 YES
2 70 YES
3 80 YES
4 90 YES
5 100 YES

The real-life application of this would mean that if Robert Lewandowski does not have any negative actions he will be Level 0 and will keep his 35 baseline Points. However, if he adds an all-around score of 10 to the 35 baseline, his overall score will be 45.

By gaining a decisive point, Lewandowski would move up to level 1, securing him a minimum of 60 points, to which he can add All around points to make up his overall score.

The table below shows all positive and negative actions that can affect a player’s decisive level.

Decisive Actions
Positive Action Negative Action
Goal Red Card
Assist Own Goal
Penalty Won Penalty Conceded
Penalty Save Error Lead to a Goal
Last Man Tackle 3 or more Goals Conceded (GK only)
Clearance off the Line
Clean-sheet (GK only)


All Around Score (AA)

Essentially, the All Around Score represents the sum of all points recorded for various actions during a game. A player’s position will determine how many points they receive. A forward, for example, would not be penalised for possession lost as much as a defender would

In these tables, we have broken down the scoring into categories that demonstrate what this means in practice.

The General Category

The obvious stand-out here is the fouled score, so if your player is particularly good at falling over convincingly, it’s worth including him when you’re playing against someone who commits fouls regularly

 

The General Category
CATEGORY ACTION Gk DEF MID FOR
GENERAL Yellow Card -3.0 -3.0 -3.0 -3.0
GENERAL Fouls -1.0 -0.5 0
GENERAL Was fouled 0.5 1.0
GENERAL Error leads to shot -5.0 -1.0 -1.0 -1.0

The Defending Category

Among the main points to note is the 10 points for a clean sheet for the Defenders, so if you have two defenders from the same team plus a keeper a clean sheet would net you 30 points. Especially effective against a team that struggles to score goals, this is what would be considered a defensive stack 

The Defending Category
CATEGORY ACTION GK DEF MID FOR
DEFENDING Clean sheet 10
DEFENDING Goals conceded -2.0 -2.0
DEFENDING Effective clearance 0.5
DEFENDING Won tackle 3.0 3.0
DEFENDING Blocked cross 1.0 1.0
DEFENDING Block 2.0 1.0
DEFENDING Double Double 4.0 4.0 4.0
DEFENDING Triple Double 6.0 6.0 6.0
DEFENDING Triple Triple 12.0 12.0 12.0

 

As a result of the defensive performance of a player in a Game Week, Managers can unlock bonuses. These bonuses are called Double Bonuses. It works like this: 

Double-Double (4 points): If your player completes two of the following: two interceptions, two won tackles, and two net duels, but no triple-double.

Triple-Double (6 points): At least two interceptions, won tackles, and net duels but no triple-triples

(Triple-Triple): At least 3 interceptions, won tackles, and net duels

The Passing Category

In the category of ‘Passing’, there are two main areas that can really increase your score: ‘Big Chance Created’ and ‘Key Pass’. It’s here that your playmakers display their scoring prowess by making final third passes that rip defences apart constantly and can propel them into the  high so5 scoring  charts.

 

The Passing Category
CATEGORY ACTION GK DEF MID FOR
PASSING Big chance created 3.0 3.0 3.0 3.0
PASSING Attempted assist 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0
PASSING Accurate pass 0.1 0.1 0.1
PASSING Accurate final third pass 0.5 0.3 0.1
PASSING Accurate long balls 0.2 0.5 0.5
PASSING Long Pass Into Opposition 0.5
PASSING Missed pass -0.2 -0.2 -0.2

The Possession Category

It is here where ball holders rack up points and a team that has a high pass rate and, more importantly, successful passes can reign supreme. For a team that likes to score a goal and shut up shop, passing the ball back and forth in their own half and waiting for the final whistle, this can be beneficial.

The Possession Category
CATEGORY ACTION GK DEF MID FOR
POSSESSION Possession lost -0.3 -1.0 -0.5 -0.1
POSSESSION Possession won 0.5 0.5
POSSESSION Duel lost -2.0 -0.5 -0.5
POSSESSION Duel won 1.5 0.5 0.5
POSSESSION Interception 3.0 2.0

The Attacking Category

In the ‘Attacking’ category, there are two big actions that can change the outcome of your game. A player can earn 3 points for every shot taken on target. On the other hand , if your player misses a big chance it’s going to seriously affect your score. Because of this, it is better to steer clear of players who continually take outrageous shots with little to show for it

The Attacking Category
CATEGORY ACTION GK DEF MID FOR
ATTACKING Shot on target 3.0 3.0 3.0 3.0
ATTACKING Won contest 0.5 0.5 0.5
ATTACKING Penalty area entries 0.5 0.5 0.5
ATTACKING Penalty kick missed -5.O -5.O -5.O -5.O
ATTACKING Big chance missed -5.O -5.O -5.O -5.O

Goalkeeping Category

Keepers have a really tough time on Sorare they can go all game without conceding to have the score decimated in the 90th minute

As a goalkeeper, there isn’t much you can do to gain points, and you can only save what is being shot at you, so for this reason, it isn’t always best practice to place your keeper against a team that doesn’t take many shots on goal. Likewise, you don’t want him to be inundated with shots, so choose carefully.

Goalkeeping Category
CATEGORY ACTION GK DEF MID FOR
GOALKEEPING Saved shot from inside the box 1.O
GOALKEEPING Good high claim 1.2
GOALKEEPING Punches 1.2
GOALKEEPING Diving save 3.0
GOALKEEPING Diving catch 3.5
GOALKEEPING Cross not claimed -5.0
GOALKEEPING Six second violation -5.0
GOALKEEPING GK Smother 5.0
GOALKEEPING Keeper Sweeper 5.0
