Methodology: dingoT uses 6 different inputs ranging from ELO ratings to market values. The weight of inputs change as season progresses to reduce the importance of forward looking metrics such as betting odds in favor of actual achievements.

Still very early to have drastic changes.

Rank Team Points
1 Barcelona 145.6
2 Real Madrid 135.6
3 Bayern 129.9
4 Chelsea 113.5
5 Atlético 113.4
6 Juventus 111.7
7 Man City 110.6
8 Paris SG 108.7

12 Porto 100.7
13 Liverpool 97.4
14 Valencia 97.1
15 Leverkusen 96.5
16 Benfica 96.1

Moving on to dingoC, which ranks countries based on teams in dingoT top-32 ranking:

Country #Teams #Points #dingoW
Spa 6 42.2 24
Eng 7 28.9 29
Germ 6 24.4 19
Ita 5 14.5 5
Por 3 9.4 3
Fra 2 7.5 1
Rus 2 4.6 0
Ukr 1 2.5 0

La Liga is comfortably ahead as usual but EPL has more watchable games according to dingoW which comes next.


Methodology: Using dingoT to rate games on 2 metrics – quality (ie. 1 vs 2 is higher than 8 vs 9) and competitiveness (ie. 16 vs 17 is higher than 1 vs 32) to combine into one rating. 75+ games are listed.
