Új év, új statisztikák

Az új évben minden héten igyekszünk jelentkezni az aktuális európai ranglisták érdekességeivel. Emlékeztetőül: európai futballbajnokságok hagyományos és a sakkból átvett Élő-pontos (értékszámos) tabellái, valamint az érvényben lévő sorozatok listái, hozzáadva mindezek toplistáival, és egyéb érdekességek Európa 54 UEFA-tagországának jelen szezonban 718 élvonalbeli csapata alapján. A statisztikák alapjául a hazai bajnokságok és az európai kupaküzdelmek mérkőzései szolgálnak.

Sorozatok

Veretlenségi sorozat
Valószínűleg kevesen találnák el, hogy melyik csapat áll Európa élén a veretlenségi ranglistán. A Club Brugge az, 23 mérkőzéssel. Különösen értékes ez úgy, hogy a csapat az Európa Ligában is szerepelt az elmúlt hónapokban, és mivel veretlen maradt, könnyen kitalálható, hogy tovább is jutott. A Club Brugge vezeti is a belga bajnokságot, és ha így folytatja, 10 év után újra bajnok lehet. A második helyen álló walesi The New Saints sorozata sem akármilyen, a 19 meccs is tekintélyes sorozat. Utolsó vereségük még a nyáron az EL-ben volt, a bajnokságot veretlenül vezetik.

Győzelmi sorozat
A lista élén két kicsi ország csapata áll. Vezet 9 meccsel a máltai Hibernians, mögötte 8 meccsel 2. a gibraltári Lincoln Red Imps. Különösen ez utóbbi eredmény lóg ki toplistáink közül, mert a gibraltári bajnokságban igazán nem a máshol megszokott kiegyenlített erőviszonyok vannak. Málta is kicsi, de azért ott nem szokás 16-0-ra nyerni, mint ahogy a Lincoln ezt néha megteszi.

A listán a hétvégéig óriási előnnyel a Real Madrid vezetett, és végül 18 meccsel zárta sorozatát, ami a 2013 nyarától vezetett toplistán a leghosszabb sorozatot jelenti.

Gólszerzési sorozat
Már októberben nyilvánvaló volt, hogy az izlandi FH hosszú távra kibérli az első helyet, mivel a csapat 35 meccses sorozata egyrészt megközelíthetetlen rövid távon, másrészt nem fog
megszakadni, mivel az izlandi bajnokság véget ért, és majd csak késő tavasszal fog folytatódni. Második helyen a Real Madrid, 24 meccses sorozatuk tavaly május óta tart.

Clean sheet sorozat
Európa élén az Aberdeen! 630 perce nem kaptak gólt. Utoljára a Celtictől kaptak gólt a 90. percben, azóta 7 meccsen nem. A Celtic ellen ezzel a 90. perces góllal vesztettek, de ennek
ellenére ők vezetik a skót bajnokságot, és nem a Celtic! Ilyenre nem volt példa mostanában.

Egyelőre a sorozatok elemezgetésére volt idő, közben eljött az újabb hétvége, további statok a hétvégi meccsek után.

Form changes in the past weeks based on rating numbers

Last Match 5-8-10-15-20

Based on the last 5 matches Carmarthen Town is leading the table with the rating change of 70,7994. Carmarthen also takes the 15. place on the All-Time list with this result. Some teams competed for the first place before (in April), and Sevilla was the best of them with the rating of 74,6043.

In the Last 8 Match list the only one rating above 100 belongs to Paris SG (111,8291) in spring. The Moldovan Veris holds the first place now with the rating of 95,7330. Veris is in a very good form, the team is in the top 5 in every single form list.

Veris holds also the Last 10 Games’ list with 101,5807 and Paris SG had the highest rating in spring (120,0070).

We can find the two finalists of the European cups, Benfica (134,2222) and Atletico Madrid (118,6620) in top of the list based on the last 15 games, but the highest rating (141,1848) belongs to Salzburg, that was in cracking form in winter and the beginning of spring. Georgian Sioni (139,3704) is in the second place.

Sioni leads the last 30 games table that shows the longest form, with an incredible rating, 177,6649! With this rating, Sioni takes the third place of the All-time list, too! In addition the team’s run is still “alive”. All-time list’s thirteenth ranker; Benfica’s run also hasn’t finished yet. These two runs have the highest ratings in spring.

Last Day 30-60-90-120-150-180

You can’t find a team with so high rating in the last day 30 list that also would be enough to get into all-time list. Sioni (80,3823) and Veris (79,6831) achieved the best results in the last weeks. Salzburg (88,5625) had higher rating than them, and the Austrian team held almost all the tables at that time. We can find these teams in more tables.

Benfica (130,6751) and Atletico Madrid (118,6620) produced the best results in the last 60 days list in recent days, but both team’s rating has dropped, so their record isn’t still “alive”. Benfica holds the third place with this rating in the all-time list.

The third place is not the best result for Benfica, because they are second in the last 90 days all-time list with this amazing 155,4749 rating. Benfica’s best result (160,6522) in the last 120 days list deserves the third place in the all-time list. Curiosity, that in this list, Liverpool (119,3479) hold the second place, but they are far from the Portuguese team. This reason may be the fact that most of the best leagues’ teams were on winter holiday. Benfica’s advantage in the last 150 and 180 days is very big because of similar reasons. Sioni and Atletico Madrid have 50 rating disadvantage compared to Benfica (195,2880) in the last 150 days list, and Sioni (with 20 points less) and Ernis (with 40 points less) are behind the Portuguese team in the last 180 days list.

The team of the Month

March

Atalanta has claimed the award of the team of the Month with the 6-match-winning streak, including the overcoming of Internazionale and Lazio. Atalanta is not in any international cups, so this award is special, because teams can get much more rating when winning in the later stages of these cups. Atalanta’s rating has been raised by 71,6049 in March.

April

With their 6 wins and 2 draws, including qualifying to the Champions League Final and the defeating of Barcelona, Atletico is the Team of the Month! The rating change of 74,1689 is very high. A Georgian team, Sioni takes the second place with their 5 victories in the league, whilst the Moldovan Veris finished in third place also with 5 victories in the Moldovan league.

Hungarian leader in Current Clean sheet Streaks

Ferencváros is on top of Europe! Hungarian side leads the Clean sheet Streaks table with a total of 445 minutes and along with Levadia Tallinn, who exactly has the same amount of minutes without conceding.

Last man to score against Ferencváros was Dusan Vasiljevic in the 5th minute on a match called ’The Derby’ – it is played between Újpest and Ferencváros and it is similar to the Old Firm. Since that, 4 another league matches passed and Puskás FC, Honvéd, Kaposvár and Mezőkövesd were all unable to put the ball into the net.

Let’s talk about ended series as well. Zhetysu from Kazakhstan had a 10 match (985 minutes) long streak during Spring – they are #3 on All Time list.

Four other teams reached 8 consecutive matches without conceding a single goal but Siroki Brijeg (Bosnia-Herzegovina), Lincoln (Gibraltar), Santa Coloma (Andorra) and Dacia Chisinau (Moldova) have all finished their run.

Spring Streaks!

Unbeated Streaks

The longest Unbeated Run belongs to Benfica during the past few weeks. It’s still living and the Portugal side is at a milestone: 30 games in a row! It’s unbelieveable, especially when we find out that they played international matches all season long – and they will participate in the EL-final in Turin.

Another ongoing streak is from Latvia: Ventspils are at 21 matches. During the spring season, two other teams were over the 20-match line, but both run is ended. Real Madrid (23) and Sparta Praha (25) were the two teams.

Winning Streaks

Longest Winning Run belongs to Crvena Zvezda (Red Star Beograd). Their 15-match campaign was interrupted on 26 April against city rivals Partizan. However, this fantastic run is on the top of All Time-list!

Longest ongoing streak: Ventspils, 12 Wins since October.

Ended Winning Streaks this Spring above 10: Salzburg (14), Lincoln (from Gibraltar, 11), Liverpool

Scoring Streaks

As we highlighted it several times, there was a remarkable scoring run from Salzburg with a total of 460 days and 56 matches. Bayern Munich seemed to set another record, but they have been stopped by Augsburg after 385 days and 51 games (they were unable to score on both matches against Real Madrid since that though).

Now it’s another German team, Wolfsburg leading this category with 25 matches in a row, followed by Celtic (24) and Dinamo Zagreb (23).

On All Time list, Real Madrid stopped at position #3 after 34 matches (Dortmund beated them by 2-0), Benfica stopped at #8 after 27 matches and Liverpool is #16 with 25 matches.

Surprise of the Week

Between 28th April and 4th May the most surprising result was Olhanense’s win over Porto (2-1). Porto has stuck in 3rd place, so the guys from Olhao were undoubtly more motivated. A rating change of 21,3157 will result a nice place at the end of the month.

Three other matches ended with a rating change above 19 and another 3 above 18 – e. g. the loss of Atlético Madrid, Roma and Fenerbahce.

Summary of past weeks’ surprises

Since our last check-in, these matches caused the biggest surprises in all Europe:

10th-16th March

19,4181 Bohemians Praha – Slovan Liberec 1-0 (Czech Republic)

18,8806 Bray Wanderers – Sligo Rovers 1-0 (Ireland)

Before the match, Bohemians was in the worst form in the Czech Republic. Liberec was also in a negative run, but still, it caused a huge surprise.

Irish Premier League has just started, relations are not undoubtly clear, but in season 2013 Sligo was one of the best teams.

17th-23rd March

19,6399 Kayserispor – Galatasaray 1-0 (Turkey)

Form Last 8 640th-ranked (/723) Kayserispor beated Galatasaray after Galata’s Champions League match against Chelsea FC.

24th-30th March

20,4001 Osijek – Dinamo Zagreb 3-2 (Croatia)

19,9216 Asteras Tripolis – Olympiacos Piraeus 2-1 (Greece)

19,8950 Tallinna Infonet – Flora Tallinn 3-2 (Estonia)

19,5243 Trakai – Suduva 1-0 (Lithuania)

19,0828 Nacional – Porto 2-1 (Portugal)

18,9081 Sevilla – Real Madrid 2-1 (Spain)

18,3673 Merani – Dila Gori 2-1 (Georgia)

18,1441 Jelgava – Daugava Daugavpils 2-1 (Latvia)

This week was completely insane and brought the first Rating change above 20 as well. Dinamo Zagreb’s last lost match was back in December when they lost to Ludogorets at an EL Group Stage clash. Since that, they won 8 of their 9 domestic matches with one draw while Osijek only had 3 W in their 27 match 2013-14 campaign – 1 during the last 19 matches.

Olympiacos has lost several matches after their early championship title. Their loss to EL-contester Asteras Tripolis was not a huge surprise in this period of the championship after all.

Tallinna Infonet was able to beat Flora. It was a sign. Estonia has a new top team beside the traditional ones.

31th March-6th April

21,4361 Augsburg – Bayern München 1-1 (Germany)

21,3430 PAS – Olympiakos 2-0 (Greece)

Bayern claimed their newest championship trophy between the two legs of CL-quarterfinals against Manchester United. They could not step up again for a match in Augsburg, which resulted a 1-1 draw.

Olympiacos have lost another one after early title.

7th-13th April

20,2490 Sturm Graz – Salzburg 2-1 (Austria)

20,2418 Vorskla – Shakhtar Donetsk 1-0 (Ukraine)

19,5930 Granada – Barcelona 1-0 (Spain)

18,8981 Sivasspor – Galatasaray 2-1 (Turkey)

18,5867 Sioni – Dinamo Tbilisi 1-0 (Georgia)

18,4413 Olympique Lyonnais – Paris SG 1-0 (France)

18,2517 Pribram – Slovan Liberec 3-1 (Czech Republic)

18,0862 Xanthi – Panathinaikos 3-1 (Greece)

This week has seen another early champion with a reserves line-up – Salzburg this time. They got back home with a loss from Graz.

Political and military conflicts made Ukrainian Premier League unpredictable. That’s exactly what happened when Vorksla Poltava beated Shakhtar Donetsk 1-0.

Spain’s Big3 started to decline to Big2 as Barcelona ended with an ugly loss in Granada.

14th-20th April

19,5131 Sumquayit – Neftchi 3-1 (Azerbaijan)

18,5838 Costuleni – Dacia 2-1 (Moldova)

18,1542 Osijek – Rijeka 2-0 (Croatia)

This week’s most surprising results came from lower level championships. Sumqayit and Costuleni were both able to beat their championships’ top teams and Osijek – who have been on this page earlier – were also able to beat 2nd placed Rijeka after Dinamo Zagreb.

21st-27th April

19,5781 Napredak – Partizan 2-0 (Serbia)

19,0279 Bnei Sakhnin – Maccabi Tel-Aviv 2-1 (Israel)

18,4667 Rudar – Maribor 2-0 (Slovenia)

18,4461 Rumelange – Fola Esch 1-0 (Luxembourg)

18,3215 Ermis – APOEL 2-1 (Cyprus)

Partizan’s previous loss was back in November but still, they couldn’t catch Crvena Zvezda (Red Star Beograd) in domestic contest. They would have needed this one, too.

This year’s Izraeli championship left less doubts about the person of the best team – it is Maccabi Tel-Aviv -, but Bnei Sakhnin were able to claim the win against them. However, Maccabi became champions a week later.

Top Match of the Week!

Between 28th April and 4th May, based on the two participating teams’ Form Last 8 points, the Top Match of the Week was a Veris-Tiraspol match in Moldova. It’s not only the highest rated match of last week but the year’s Top Match so far! Veris lead the current Form Last 8 table with +92 Rating change (12th All Time), while Tiraspol was 55th with a change of +45.

Veris was able to keep all 3 points at home and strengthened their leading position in Form Last 8 tables. They climbed to 10th place on All Time list as well.

Third place goes to Benfica and Estoril (86.65), an expected 2-0 has come.
