PERFORMANCE INDEX RATING of the clubs in Europe’s top 5 leagues: Bayern Munich tops the list.


Bayern Munich is still topping the chart in all the areas that count; with their closest competitions coming from England (Manchester City and Liverpool).
Inter Milan has also been throwing their hat into this race.

We are past the midseason in all the Top 5 leagues.
Can these leading clubs hold on or improve their position before the release of the “GOLD LIST” ranking at the end of the season?

Liverpool interrupted the top three from being made up of defending league champions. Liverpool beat Inter Milan by 0.28 points to take third place behind Manchester City and Bayern Munich.

Despite adding to their quality in attack over the summer, Atletico Madrid is sitting in 26th in the ranking list (out of the 98). This is far from what many would’ve expected from a reigning Spanish La Liga champion.

Lille is the reason Atletico Madrid isn’t the most disappointing of the defending champions.
After winning their first title in a decade, Lille has done an awful job to defend theFrench Ligue 1. They sit in 46th.

The best performing club and the worst performing club are both from the Italian Serie A.

Empoli (Italian Serie A)
The best performer of the recently-promoted teams in Europe’s T-5 leagues is Empoli (Italian Serie A. Empoli (39th) ranks 9 positions above Lille.
Rayo Vallecano (Spanish La Liga) is the next best performer of the recently-promoted teams (48th).

Salernitana (Italian Serie A)
Seeing two recently-promoted teams at the bottom isn’t shocking.
Salernitana (Italian Serie A) and Greuther Furth (German Bundesliga) occupy the bottom two spots. Burnley (English Premier League) is right above those two.

Manchester City (2.48 points per game) is the most out of reigning champions from Europe’s top leagues. Bayern Munich’s 2.45 points is next amongst the champions in the top 5 leagues, but it is Sporting CP that comes second (0.01) behind Manchester City when the top 7 leagues are counted.

1. Bayern Munich (German Bundesliga)

It is always a massive footballing achievement when you win the domestic title.
Bayern Munich’s consistency in Germany has possibly downplayed their success when they become league champions.
Bayern Munich is still the highest-rated football club on our performance index.
In the German Bundesliga, they are scoring 3.25 goals and conceding 0.95 goals per game. No one is catching up at this rate.

2. Manchester City (English Premier League)

MANCHESTER CITY is still on track to keep the Premier League title for another season. Manchester City has conceded 14 goals in the Premier League while dropping 55 goals into the opposition’s net. They are leading the Premier League title race by picking up 2.48 points.

3. Liverpool (English Premier League)

2.18 points per game and 2.64 goals scored per game.
Liverpool is second in the Premier League title race. They have two games in hand but a point ahead of third-place (Chelsea), and a game in hand but 9 points off from the leaders (Manchester City).

4. Inter Milan (Italian Serie A)

Inter Milan is 4 points in the lead and has a game in hand in the Italian Serie A title race. 53 points from 16 wins in 22 matches played. Inter is scoring 2.41 goals per game and conceding 0.77 goals.

5. Borussia Dortmund (German Bundesliga)

If anyone is going to stop Bayern Munich from another German Bundesliga title, it will be Dortmund. They’ve already lost a quarter of their league games, and that is a lot of games to lose if you’re chasing a team like Bayern Munich.

6. Paris Saint-Germain (French Ligue 1)

Paris St. Germain’s 11 point lead in the French Ligue 1 after 22 of the 38
matches is partly due to the fact that the chasing pack has been tripping off each other. 2.41 points per game and 2.09 goals per game in the French Ligue 1.

7. Real Madrid (Spanish La Liga)

Real Madrid is looking to keep the La Liga title in Madrid (but with them). Four points in the lead after 22 of the 38 matches played. There is a lot more to go and to do but from what we have seen so far, Real Madrid isn’t letting that many points drop out of their hands.

8. AC Milan (Italian Serie A)

AC Milan is four points from the top of the league table in Serie A as things stand. It’s currently a three-horse race for the Scudetti, and AC Milan is part of that three. (Napoli and Inter Milan are the other two).

9. Chelsea (English Premier League)

Chelsea has been slipping out of the Premier League title race in recent rounds. They are picking up slightly less than 2 points a game after 24 matches (1.96).
As the UEFA Champions League holders, more is expected from this Chelsea side than they’ve put out so far. There is still enough time in the season to turn things around for the ideal end.

10. Napoli (Italian Serie A)

Napoli is four points from the top of the Italian Serie A standings. They are part of a three-horse race that is currently brewing in the Italian Serie A title race.
They’ve won 65% of their matches by scoring 1.87 goals per game. That will need some improvement to stay as a contestant for the Scudetti.

12. Atalanta (Italian Serie A)
Atalanta’s consistency in recent years remains. With a game in hand, Atalanta is somehow in the Italian Serie A title race.


Sevilla is four points from the top of the La Liga standings and 6 points from their city rival Real Betis.
Both clubs are occupying the top three spots in the current La Liga standings.

13. Sevilla (Spanish La Liga)
14. Real Betis (Spanish La Liga)

17. Nice (French Ligue 1)

Nice is next in line in the Ligue 1 title race but Marseille has a game in hand to take the second place away. What Nice has this season is the manager of the reigning champions on their side. (Christophe Galtier)

98. Salernitana (Italian Serie A)

Scoring 0.64 goals scored per game while conceding at a rate of 2.41 goals per game, Salernitana from 22 matches played have managed to hit the double-digit mark of 10 points.
