Filter types give us the opportunity to look at the match with other eyes.
In the video below you will see a very simple example where you will understand the difference between each filter type.
Whole match filter type is basic, this filter is applied for stats from the beginning of the match.
Second half filter type is counting stats only for second half. With this filter it is like matches starts in second half with 0 attacks, 0 dangerous attacks, 0 shots on/off target and so on. Only yellow cards, red cards and score persist, but you can use condition 'Home/Away Team score in second half - needs to be' which counts goals only from second half.
Last minutes filter type will IGNORE all stats and count stats only for last minutes of match (e.g. You choose last 10 minutes filter type and match time is 70' - for this filter in 60' is beginning of match with 0 attacks, 0 dangerous attacks, 0 shots on/off target and so on. Only score, yellow cards and red cards persist). This kind of filter is good when in the last minutes of the match is team losing, but starting to dominate (because they want equalization).
