Champions League - European Power Rankings

Eurosport - Tue, 15 Apr 23:29:00 2008

The inaugural Power Rankings title is likely to be decided over two games in Manchester and Barcelona at the end of this month after the top two both progressed to the Champions League semi-finals, where they now will meet each other in what promises to be a titanic battle.

* Dead man walking
* Fans call time on Grant

We take into account both domestic and European performances, plus the relative difficulty of each team's league, to find out who is the best team in Europe.

Manchester United hold on to top spot in our league having beaten Roma 1-0 to book their mouthwatering date with Barcelona before ending Arsenal's Premier League title hopes with a thrilling 2-1 win at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Catalan giants remain in second place, despite having been held to a 2-2 draw by Recreativo in La Liga, and largely thanks to their Champions League win over Schalke.

Liverpool storm into third place after their win over Arsenal in the third instalment of their much-hyped trilogy was followed by a comfortable 3-1 victory over Blackburn at the weekend.

And with Chelsea moving into fifth - despite a 1-1 draw with Wigan - unsurprisingly that means four of the top five spots are taken by Champions League semi-finalists.

Just Internazionale in fourth place are intruding on the all-conquering quartet's dominance, with the Nerazzurri continuing to pick up regular points in Serie A.

The week's biggest fall guys are Fenerbahce, who failed to bounce back from their Champions League exit at the hands of Chelsea when they were held to a 2-2 draw by Ankaraspor at the weekend. The Istanbul club drop to 11th and a top ten finish is now looking like a tough challenge for Zico's men.

EUROPEAN POWER RANKINGS

7 (7) Porto - 20.17

8 (9) Sevilla - 19.97

9 (8) Roma - 19.26

20 (17) Lyon - 16.15


HOW IT WORKS

Scores are based on points per game in domestic league and European games.

Domestic points per game are multiplied by the league coefficient - either 4, 4.5 or 5 - with teams in stronger leagues getting more credit.

Champions League (or Super Cup) victories are counted from the third qualifying round onward as three points for a win and multiplied by a coefficient of 5.

UEFA Cup victories are counted from the first round as three points for a win and multiplied by a coefficient of 4.

Domestic and European totals are then added together. If a side has played in both Champions League and UEFA Cup, its European total is an average of the two scores.

League coefficients:

England, Spain, Italy = 5

Germany, Portugal, France = 4.5

Others = 4

Example: Manchester United

80 points from 34 Premier League games = 2.35 points per game.

Multiplied by league coefficient of five - 2.35 x 5 = 11.76

26 points from 10 Champions League games (including qualifying) = 2.60 points per game.

Multiplied by Champions League coefficient of five - 12.50

Total score = 11.76 + 12.50 = 24.76

What has the postings of informative/interesting news article got to do with any issues regarding the visit to Old Trafford? And for the last time, I'm controlling myself before I actually unleash the volatile side of mine. If you really has no interest or whatsoever regarding this article, then it would be best if you don't post crap to increase you posts count.

how can we be top if we ave not won the champion league in ages
I believe it's due to the sheer dominance of United Premiership over the past few decades. Besides the Mourinho-era's Chelsea, Arsenal are the only genuine challengers for the championship title. Just that, our domestice dominance, I think it's enough for United to top the list of rankings.

Fazman, no need to be like that mate. That was uncalled for.
Rd4l is giving us info and articles and he clearly states the source,
so if you dont like it then dont read it and enough of the insulting comments too.

Right here you are, discouraging a fellow United supporter from sharing a good informative article which other members in this forum may find it an interesting read. You have so much spare time in hand to accuse another member of copying threads from a foreign site, don't you think it's totally unnecessary and instead, makes you look rather silly? And I did quote the source of the article appropriately, didn't I? So, I really don't see the point of why are you treating a fellow red in such a way that it exemplifies your lowliness. Last but not least, who are you to tell me that I should I get out of this forum considering the fact that I've been a part of the 'happy family' community here at ManutdTalk forums much longer than you do? I am also very sure that other members would greatly appreciate that I actually bother to put it up these articles here.
