Three strong Spanish teams in a fight for promotion? Who else will feature?
Division 3 , the melting pot of Top 100. Teams on the way up, teams on the way down. Teams of golden oldies, with one last chance for the big push, others with developing talent.
Seville seem to be a cut above the other teams with a clear point advantage. Strong all round and a potent midfield, should see them through. Levante should push them close with probably the best attack in the league. Moenchengladbach in 3rd have the best defence in D3. There we have the puzzle of D3 each team will have it’s strong point, but will probably be much weaker else where, less so for these 3 .
You probably would want to be on around 220 pts to get promotion, this leave us down to Villareal , in 10th spot who should be up to the task. Cologne could suffer with a weaker keeper, 88 is a must in D3.
The normal cut off for relegation is an ETOT of 218, so PSV or lower could be in serious trouble. PSV and Fenerbache are weakest at the back, Spartak have less depth and will struggle for possession. Olympiacos hope their keeper can save what the defence won’t be able to stop.
Southampton and Newcastle should be able to maintain a good cup run somewhere along the line.
