The home side is usually represented as the number 1 which means that the match is most likely being played at their own stadium in their own city and country. There are exceptions to this rule when it comes to matches being played at neutral locations such as friendlies, or finals. Regardless, all matches have a home side and an away side. The home team is located on the left-hand side of the scoreboard on your television screen. The home side is deemed to have won the match when the number of goals scored by the home side is more than the goals scored by their opposition called the away side at the end of a match.
The draw outcome happens when both sides fail to get the upper hand by scoring more goals than their opponent. A match is called a draw when both the home and away sides are level on the number of goals scored or the absence of goals scored at the end of the match.
The away side is usually represented as the number 2 which means that the match is most likely being played at their own stadium in their own city and country. Regardless, all matches have a home side and an away side. The home team is located on the left-hand side of the scoreboard on your television screen. The home side is on the right-hand side of the same scoreboard. The away side is deemed to have won the match when the number of goals scored by the away side is more than the goals scored by the home side at the end of a match.
