No matter what you program/language you are working in, you still won't be able to differentiate if a team does:

observed: 6 points, 6 games played

The possible actual game results are:
0 wins, 6 ties
1 win, 3 ties
2 wins, 4 losses

If you have the results for all seven teams in the league you might be able to determine that there is only one combination of results that could generate the observed league wide standings.  Is this the question you are asking?

Dear Statalist,
given a soccer (football) league,with seven teams and each team plays once
against the other six teams to complete one round ; the three possible
outcomes for any game is a win, a tie or a loss, ie three points , one point
or zero point ,respectively.Is it possible to write a program that could
give you the number of games the given team has won and /or  tied and/or
lost , given that you know the number of games it has played and the number
of points that it received ?
