Division 3 stats and facts, are you the best or worst at being average?
PSV and Lazio head and shoulders above the rest.
Good news for those in division 3 , there are probably 10 or more clubs down to Shaktar who if they were promoted wouldn’t get relegated straight away. A 90 rated attacking line is sure to do well against the generally weaker defences and keepers of D3, the only way to keep them at bay would be to deny possesion. This gives PSV a huge advantage as they should also get most of the ball. Only Lazio and Lyon can match them in that respect.
These should be the promoted teams with Hertha , who have another 90 attacking team on their tails.
Leicester , Newcastle, CSKA, Hamburg all very similar teams , who could push for a play off spot.
At the wrong end there is a fairly steep decline. We see 87 or even 86’s in defence and if this is combined with a weak midfield their is only one way this will go. The two Turkish sides Cruziero and Swansea look hot to drop. With the exception of Galatasaray they fill the lower 4 positions along with Boca Juniors who are rated 5th from last in any case.
