Predicting the results of football matches poses an interesting challenge due to the fact that the sport is so popular and widespread. However, predicting the outcomes is also a difficult problem because of the number of factors which must be taken into account that cannot be quantitatively valued or modeled. As part of this work, a software solution has been developed in order to try and solve this problem. During the development of the system, a number of tests have been carried out in order to determine the optimal combination of features and classifiers. The results of the presented system show a satisfactory capability of prediction which is superior to the one of the reference method (most likely a priori outcome).
