Division 3 Season 5 stats and facts


A couple of mighty team languish in the depths of division 3, will they emerge to haunt of of the top 100 or vanish without a trace.

Why are PSV not top of the league, well regular underperformance is the answer.

A team with a 91 keeper and above 89 should easily finish in the top 4. Shaktar are performing as they should and another 90 rated keeper should see them into D2 this year. Leicester another underperforming outfit ,also struggling again. They have the best attack in D3, while they are sure to be safe from relegation they should flourish against 88 rated keepers.

You probably need above 88 to survive D2 so you can’t go down that far any more to look at playoff contenders, perhaps as far as Saint – Etienne with their strong defence or even Sassuolo if they overcome the lack of depth.

At the wrong end Cruziero who should be last are top. Again it could be lack of depth that under rates them but will also cost long term.  Marseille could well be in worse shape , with the worse keeper and apart from the top18 the worse over all rating.  The 2 Turkish teams could also end up going the wrong way but any team up as far as Lokomotive with their weak depth are at risk
