Some all season stats on how many points you will likely need to guarantee winning your division…
Also perhaps worthy of note, is that D1 aside, no team has won the same division title more than once. Obviously that will change as the seasons go on, but gives hope to all those trophyless teams that maybe, just maybe, THIS is the one.
Division One – 91 points
In a division utterly dominated by Barcelona and Bayern, a haul of 95 points would seem to be enough to ‘guarantee’ the title, while most seasons 91 would be enough.
It has been won with less, of course. In Season 1, Manchester United won with just 73 points, although that seems like an anomaly now.
The next lowest is Bayern’s Season 5 tally of 88, which I think is a more realistic ‘minimum’.
Division Two – 72 points
Last season, though, Internacional won the title with the lowest ever points tally – 68.
Division Three – 70 points
Division Four – 69 points
Last Season’s incredible ‘Division of Death’ produced one of the lowest points hauls for a title winner – just 65 for Standard Liege.
Villarreal won it with even fewer – 61 – in Season 3.
