Champions League - European Power Rankings




Manchester United have won the Premier League and look to have one hand on the inaugural Power Rankings title.

Manchester United top the pile with a handy cushion after wrapping up their 10th Premier League title in 16 seasons.

The last-minute equaliser Chelsea conceded against Bolton had no effect on their league position, but sees them drop to third in the Power Rankings behnd Chelsea.

Internazionale led these rankings for much of the season but have now dropped to fourth after another stumble in Serie A.

Yet the nerazzurri look in rude health next to Barcelona, whose season has fallen apart completely. They drop two more places to seventh.

One of the biggest surprises is that Liga champions Real Madrid are as low as 12th - that position comes courtesy of their dire Champions League form this term.

UEFA Cup finalists Rangers prop up the table in 20th, while Zenit St Petersburg do not even feature after a poor start to the domestic season in Russia.

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: Arsenal

80 points from 37 Premier League games = 2.16 points per game.

Multiplied by league coefficient of five - 2.16 x 5 = 10.81

24 points from 12 Champions League games (including qualifying) = 2 points per game.

Multiplied by Champions League coefficient of five - 12.50

Total score = 10.81 + 10 = 20.81
