You are used to reading the league table – but here you can see it. And only statistically significant numbers from the tables are included. On the following pages the English Premier League, the Spanish Primera Division and the Danish Superliga are analysed. Valid until the 2nd of April when the national team competition break is over.
English Premier League
A relatively level league with the top teams gradually distancing themselves. A few more home wins and draws than on average in other leagues. The championship battle appears to be between Manchester United and Arsenal only. In the bottom only Wigan looks like they could be headed for relegation.
Spanish Primera Division
Clearly grouped league: Barcelona and Real Madrid competing for the championship, Villareal and Valencia competing for the bronze. Less is settled in the bottom but Almeria and Hercules are apparently headed for relegation. Home field is an advantage.
Home field is no special advantage and draws are more common than in most leagues. Relatively many goals are scored. Clearly grouped league with FC Copenhagen 21 points ahead of no. 2, Odense, Brøndby and FC Midtjylland competing for the silver and bronze. Esbjerg fB and AaB in trouble below the relegation line but as 11 rounds remain and upsets are common two other teams could see themselves in the 2nd best division next season.
About this project
The tables are drawn by a Perl script reading some league tables downloaded by a shell script and the statistics are done using a Google spreadsheet.
The guess at each team's final points (bold in the middle of it's line) is calculated from a simple simulation of the remaining match programme.
