Who is going to finish second in D2 ?, well that is what the stats are asking.
Ronaldo at Milan pushes them well above any other side, they can be confident in screening the weaker defence and in any case would hope to simply outscore the opposition. Early evidence shows that could well be the case.
Standard Liege and Leverkeusen are closely matched, Liege the more attacking option and Leverkeusen in defence. Monchengladbach look to be a well balanced team and they have got off to a great start.
You probably need a rating of around 224.2 to survive D1, so even they would struggle next season.
As for the relegation prospects. Zenit are hoping their keeper keeps them up, Galatasaray I can’t really see what is going to save them . Villareal and Hoff have a good attacking line up put Villareal look fragile at the back.
