Division 5 Season 7 stats and facts. Two teams should dominate but will they ?
At least for now my own Celta Vigo team sit top of the pile. With a midfield worthy of D2 at least it is no surprise they haven’t lost in any serious competition so far. Weaker at the back but strong enough for this league. West Ham have a stronger defense but a weaker keeper which could be their downfall.
Basel have a more balanced approach with no overall weakness, unlike Twente who load up the keeper and forward line at the expense of all else.
Dnipro should be an interesting team if they can get enough possession to do damage to the opposition. River Plate 6th in the stats currently lead the division , a good start by a team good enough to challenge all season long. Lille in 2nd probably don’t have what it takes ,mainly a weak defence is likely to let them down.
Rubin Kazan are in last place stats wise and are waiting for the Portuguese ratings to buff their keeper up to the 86 /87 he deserves , so expect them to do better. Augsburg, Bremen , Flamengo will suffer all year with their current set ups.
Division 5 is 2 pts per club weaker on average or roughly 1pt per player position only really the top half statisically should hope for promotion.
