MANCHESTER – At the end of a long football season, Manchester City won the primacy of the combined ranking of the five major European championships ( Ligue 1 , Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga and Serie A). The ranking includes an average of some statistical data including goals scored, shots taken per game, number of cards received, air duels won, percentage of ball possession and passes made.
Manchester City has won everything in England, badly in the Champions League.
The battleship of Guardiola, winner this year of all national titles (Premier League, Carabao Cup, FA Cup and Community Shield) is the team with the best rating (7.09), thanks above all to the quality with the ball between the feet. Quality that translates into the highest percentage of ball possession (64%) and accuracy in successful passes (89%).
In terms of goals scored, only Paris Saint-Germain has achieved more than Citizens with 105, reaching a total rating of 7.05. On the lowest step of the podium, Bayern Monaco, who like the City won the title on the last day. The Germans, thanks to the greater number of shots attempted per game (18.7 per game), finished third with a score of 7.03. Liverpool (7.01) closes the top 5, busy Saturday in the Champions League final against Tottenham, and Barcelona (6.99), fresh from the scorching defeat in Copa del Rey against Valencia.
As for the Italians, Juventus (6.93, eighth) appears in the top 10, and Napoli (6.91, seventh on a par with Lyon). Among the best twenty are Atalanta in 12th place (6.90) and Rome in 16th position (6.86), tied with Real Madrid and Tottenham.
