scoring opportunity or chance
Explanation:
Cecilia is absolutely right; in this context it doesn't mean "dangerous" as in potentially harmful, it means close to scoring. I suggest "scoring opportunity" (or "chance"). Here are some examples:

Ash again combined well with Steve Channing to set up Danny Williams with a good scoring opportunity which the keeper saved. Five minutes later Brian Stark supplied the cross which Channing touched in unmarked at the far post to give the Robins a 1-0 lead at half time. (http://www.eclipse.co.uk/budleighfc/footballnews.htm)

Campoamiorense's half-time advantage showed their supremacy over the Lisbon visitors, however in the 49th minute Fabri had two consecutive scoring chances for the visitors, hitting the crossbar with a free-kick on the first occasion and testing Paulo Sergio with a long-range drive from the second.(http://www.sports.com/football/results/popr1/2001/05/20/mc/m...

Hope it helps.

word of caution on soccer terms (in case this is what I suspect)


Explanation:
"Jugada de peligro" in journalistic Spanish is not the same as what the FIFA calls a "dangerous play", but a situation creating danger around the opponent's goal area (close, imminent or threatening goal). "Dangerous play" is defined by the FIFA as a situation creating danger for both the player and other players around him (e.g., high kick, charging, etc., many of which end up in fouls).
