An infographic which shows top European 2014/2015 football in numbers, featuring statistics from the main European football leagues.

The 2014/2015 season is over for all the main European football leagues, so we thought to crunch some numbers to create an infographic which highlights the best and worst clubs of the past season.

The leagues considered for this infographic are the following:

  • Bundesliga (Germany)
  • Eredivisie (Netherlands)
  • La Liga (Spain)
  • Ligue 1 (France)
  • Premier League (England)
  • Primera Liga (Portugal)
  • Serie A (Italy)
  • Super League (Turkey)

For each of these leagues we have picked the clubs (one per league) who won, drawn and lost the most number of matches and the clubs with the best/worst attack and the best/worst defence. Some leagues have more than one club for some statistics as they tied for those particular stats.

They are followed in the top 3 by Benfica (Primera Liga, Portugal) with 79.41% wins and a tie between Barcelona and Real Madrid (La Liga, Spain) with 78.94% wins.

They are followed by Bayern Munich (Bundesliga, Germany) which conceded on average 0.53 goals per match and Barcelona (La Liga, Spain) with an average of 0.55 goals conceded per match.

They are followed by Kasimpasa (Super Lig, Turkey) which conceded on average 2.15 goals per match and Penafiel (Primera Liga, Portugal) with an average of 2.03 goals conceded per match.

If a good defence can win you a title, a bad defence is most likely to win you a relegation and that happened to all these clubs, but Kasimpasa, which managed to escape the relegation zone by few points thanks to a more than decent attack.
