The most efficient leader in Europe

Jordi Clos

Barça have won 80% of their games (12 out of 15) and have an eight point lead on the second placed club. On a continental level, only Inter have posted comparable statistics to Barcelona.

Barça are dominating not only in Spain, but in Europe too. Pep Guardiola’s side has won 12 of the 15 league games they have played (80%), and in addition to their eight point lead, they have an extraordinary +37 goal difference. Looking around the major leagues in Europe, only Inter Milan have achieved a similar level of dominance

Great stats by Inter

Mourinho’s side are top of Serie A having won 12 of their 16 games (75 %) and are currently six points clear of Juventus. But their goal difference is not in the same league as Barça, for the Italian leaders fall far short on +19 (29 for and 10 against).

Even in Bundesliga and Premiership
