European Football Ratings (November 1st to 4th Matches)
The Italian Job is in full effect with almost half the rankings occupied with Italian teams including a new entry. Niko Kovac was dismissed by Bayern after their horrendous 5-1 defeat to Frankfurt. Andre Gomes suffered a horrific injury with a broken ankle which saw Son receive red and departed the match in despair. United and Arsenal woes continued while Balotelli forced his sides’ game to be stopped due to racial abuse from Hellas Verona fans. RB Leipzig reached a milestone and the French Champions suffered a shock defeat. All that and more in this week’s rankings.
11) NAPOLI (-1) | 35 POINTS
Another week goes by for the Italian outfit without a win in the Serie A. The Neapolitans settled for a point in a 2-2 thriller against Atalanta. But matters got worse when they conceded defeat to Roma 2-1 which saw them booted out of the top four. It didn’t end there when Carlo Ancelotti saw red and was forced to be absent from the sidelines in the defeat to Roma. One win in their last five league matches and three points off the top six. Not the best time to be a Napoli fan.
10) RB LEIPZIG (+2) | 36 POINTS
Leipzig went on a rampage destroying Wolfsburg 6-1 in the German Cup second round. The 8-0 league win over Mainz was the biggest victory for the club in the Bundesliga with Timo Werner recording a hat-trick of goals and assists. The Darkhorse is on a roll and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
9) PARIS SAINT GERMAIN (-6) | 37 POINTS
The French Champions suffered a shock 2-1 defeat to Dijon CFO. Mbappe’s goal in the first half was cancelled out by two from the opposition. Despite creating endless opportunities to put the game to bed, it was their shambolic defending that cost them. It’s a small interruption on their quest for another Ligue One title as they sit seven clear at the summit.
8) ATLETICO MADRID (+1) | 38 POINTS
The positive, Alvaro Morata continued his red-hot form netting the goal in both games. The negative, they failed to win either game. With Barcelona and Real Madrid dropping points, Atletico once again failed to take advantage of the situation. Another week, same old story.
7) AS ROMA (NEW!) | 39 POINTS
Roma have been under the radar in recent weeks, pulling together a bunch of great performances and results. Despite finishing both games with ten men, they dismantled Udinese 4-0 before edging out Napoli in a 2-1 thriller. They move into the top four for the first time this season and lead the rest of the league as they attempt to keep pace with Juventus and Inter.
6) CHELSEA (STAY) | 40 POINTS
There’s something about Manchester United that the Blues can’t seem to figure out. They bowed out of the Carabao Cup 2-1 courtesy of a penalty and a brilliant free kick from Marcus Rashford. The score-line was reversed in their favour as they piled more misery on a win-less Watford. Jorginho and Kovacic put on a masterclass of a performance while Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic continued to rack up their goal tallies.
5) BORUSSIA DORTMUND (+2) | 41 POINTS
A brace from Julian Brandt was enough for Dortmund’s come from behind win over Monchengladbach in the German Cup. Favre’s side continued their winning ways overcoming Wolfsburg 3-0 in the league.

4) INTER (+1) | 43 POINTS
Antonio Conte’s side kept the pace at the summit with Juve claiming 2-1 victories on the road against Brescia and Bologna. Lukaku continued his goal scoring form, netting three of his sides’ goals.

3) JUVENTUS (+1) | 47 POINTS
The Bianconeri edged out Genoa 2-1 with Buffon making a world class save in the final few seconds of the game to see his side claim the victory. After a rough start to life in Turin, De Ligt redeemed himself, netting his first goal for the club in the 1-0 derby win over Torino. Italian giants are the only side left in Europe that’s undefeated in all competitions despite their horrendous finishing. Impressive to say the least.
2) MANCHESTER CITY (STAY) | 48 POINTS
City got the double over Southampton in the Carabao Cup and Premier League. Despite down 1-0 at the break in the league match, Pep’s side turned it around in the second half courtesy of goals from Aguero and Walker. Another successful week for the Cityzens. What else is new.
