Exceltemplates.org – Some sports like volleyball, tennis, and table tennis are played in number of sets to decide the winner. Different from soccer, those sports are usually played in one venue with several courts so there would be no arrangement for home and away matches. In some league competition (even soccer league), one team should meet other team more than twice.

The first model is specifically designed for soccer league while the second model is designed for league competition of sports that played in game-set matches.
