Hello again! We organize clubs of Europe's top leagues into an order that reflects the up-to-the-minute hierarchy every Tuesday.
The rankings are a season-long measurement of clubs, tracking teams throughout 2019-20 and taking into account results from all competitions. Our rankings consider advanced stats, full-season play and recent performance with some gut feeling mixed in.
Sides that have lost the fewest games naturally rank higher—though the strength of opposition met in a loss is considered—and both UEFA Champions/Europa League form and presence are used as tiebreakers for those with similar records. Teams that gather big wins against strong opponents get a boost.
All Football Power Rankings (Mar 3):
Bayern Munich go top after smashing Chelsea in Champions League and a huge win in Bundesliga. While Liverpool slip to 2nd after first Premier League defeat of the season just one week after Champions League loss.
Real Madrid beat Barca in Clasico to return to top of La Liga but were defeated by Man City in the Champions League. Juventus slip again after shock defeat to Lyon.
Man City surpass Dortmund and PSG after beating Real Madrid at the Bernabeu and lift third EFL Cup title in a row.
Man United continued good form after Fernandes signing but Chelsea were winless last week, including 3-0 humiliation at home by Bayern Munich.
Atalanta and Getafe both earn a well-deserved spot while Leicester City have been dumped out after a whole month without win despite ranking third in Premier League.
Points for each team are based on the All Football Power Rankings System.
May your favorite team have nice results in the coming week!
See you next week!
