Using mysql to determin win or loss

Recommended Posts



I have 2 tables, i know how to join them what im doing is a bit more complex, first table has 2 columns team_id and team_name second table has 4 hometeam_id, awayteam_id, home_score, and away_score is there a select statement where i can determine if a team wins or losses without adding extra colums for who won and who lost, something like:


SELECT team_name, COUNT(home_score>away_score) as win FROM scores, teams WHERE hometeam_id=team_id;


I though this would show when the home team won but if the home team losses it still shows the home team.


hope Im clear and thanks alot in advance

never mind you guys are too slow i figured it out .... if anyone needs anything like this in the future this is what you do

SELECT team_name, sum((home_score>away_score and hometeam_id=team_id) or (away_score>home_score and awayteam_id=team_id) as wins, sum((home_score>away_score and awayteam_id=team_id) or (away_score>home_score and hometeam_id=team_id) as losses FROM teams, scores ORDER BY team_name;


and that should do it, i love it when i slove my own problems, just wish it happened more often lol
