This year’s rankings for the coefficient chart have just been announced by UEFA. Notably, Atletico rose to No. 1. And Barcelona, the team ranked No. 1 last season, currently only ranked third, behind Man City on this chart …
UEFA coefficient chart for the season of 2019/20: Atletico number 1, Barca only ranked 3rd
The coefficient chart is calculated by the European Football Federation (UEFA) based on the performance of teams accumulated in two continental competitions: the Champions League and the Europa League. This is one of the bases for UEFA to refer to the classification and evaluation, such as arranging seeding teams when conducting a draw in the Champions League or Europa League. And this season, the No. 1 and No. 2 positions on the rankings temporarily belong to Atletico Madrid and Man City when they both get 21,000 points.
With Atletico Madrid, this team created a shock when turning the champions of the Champions League, Liverpool into the former king from the final result of 4-2 after 2 rounds in the 1/8 Champions League round of 2019/20. In particular, the spectacular comeback of Atletico at Anfield yard with a score of 3-2 in the second leg of the round of 1/8 took place on March 12. Meanwhile, Man City is gaining a certain advantage from a 2-1 victory over Real Madrid in the first leg of the round of 1/8 Champions League 2019/20 which took place on February 27.
Third place in the UEFA coefficient chart this season has belonged to the traditional rich club of Spain, Barcelona. Specifically, the Nou Camp team has earned 20,000 points. In the context of the loss of numbers, especially on the attack because of injury, this can be considered a great effort of the Barcelona players, especially Lionel Messi, who is carrying the shoulder of the attack.
Last season, Barca earned 30,000 points and topped the UEFA coefficient chart in 2018/19. Surely that will be the motivation for teachers and coach Quique Setien to be more determined in the remaining stages of this season.
Liverpool, the team has just been disappointed Atletico. With an early stop in Europe’s most prestigious arena from a defeat to Atletico, The Kop only got 18,000 points. A modest figure compared to the 29,000 points the team from England earned last season.
Like Liverpool, Real Madrid is in a much better position. According to statistics, the score earned by the Spanish Royal Club this season is only 17,000 points. In the context of being led by City with a score of 2-1 from the first leg of the round of 1/8 Champions League 2019/20, Real Madrid’s situation became even more arduous, much more difficult.
124,000 It is the number of points that Barca has accumulated on the UEFA coefficient table in the last 5 seasons. Specifically, Barca earned 26,000 points in the 2015/16 season; 23,000 (2016/17); 25,000 (2017/18); 30,000 (2018/19) and 20,000 this season.
