Here is the last update of the key article of the blogal on the evolution single step, match after match, after the indication UEFA and its incidence on the number of places in Champions' League and Europa Ligue the next season.
Let us begin by reminding the majorities on the subject:
1-How do we calculate the indication UEFA of countries?
2-In what serves the indication UEFA as countries?
( That also serves to discuss the French team of football, recurring subject of this blog: http://blogal.over-blog.com/article-35333749.html)
3-What was the classification of departure of the season?
From the season, by depriving of the coefficient 2009 the points of the season 2004-2005, we obtain the following classification:
1 England 63.9 points distance 25 with regard to France;
2 Spain 61,8 23
3 Italy 48,9 10
4 Germany 46,1 7
5 FRANCE 38,7
6 Russia 37,6 1
7 Ukraine 33,7 5
8 Rumania 33,4 5
9 Portugal 28,3 10
10 Netherlands 27,1 12
Thus 2,8 points of distance between Italy and Germany for this FAMOUS 3rd place meaning
4 places in Champions' League. And 10,2 points to be caught up for France!!!
Today 19/03, the next day of 100 % elimination of the French clubs in Europa Ligue (Lille and Marseille), I modified the title: there is the real opportunity for Germany to come to take the third place. And no chance for France!
Even if Bordeaux and Lyon are 1st and 2nd in the classification by points UEFA this season this day, at first they will meet in the next tour, thus certainly there will be one in semi-final but not two (but not zero either!), and especially the Germans have another three clubs in running in both cups, and Italians only one.
To date (detail below), Germany caught up 1,75 points on 2,8 and has big chances to mark still points thanks to her three clubs. Italy has just one more but a lucky one! CSKA Moscow was a priori the "easier" 8 ¼ finalists.
Here are thus all the figures updated for these three countries:
1 Germany 6 teams 94.5 15.750
10 Bayern München CL 19.0 still in running
15 VfB Stuttgart CL 18.5
17 Werder Bremen EL 17.0
20 VfL Wolfsburg EL 16.0 still in running
29 Hamburger SV EL 15.0 still in running
52 Hertha BSC EL 9.0
4 France 6 teams 85.0 14.166
1 Girondins Bordeaux CL 25.0 still in running
2 Olympic Lyon CL 24.0 still in running
25 Lille OSC EL 16.0
31 Olympic Marseille EL 14.0
68 Toulouse FC EL 6.0
204 Forward Guingamp EL 0.0
5 Italy 7 teams 98.0 14.000
5 Fiorentina CL 22.0
6 Internazionale CL 21.0 still in running
19 AC Milan CL 16.0
27 Juventus EL 15.0
38 As Roma EL 12.5
