Marseille +12 PVA well deserved championship and stats title for the French team.
In any other season 2nd place Lokomotiv Moscow with a higher VA of 15 and a PVA of 8 would have run away with the stats title. The first place makes all the difference , even though they were separated by just 5 goals in the end.
Playoff team Sporting come 3rd in the stats with a VA of +9., Malaga also did a great job with VA of 9 in 9th spot , as did +4 VA Kiev who were 3rd. Some other big VA scores came from Atheltic club on +7 , WBA +6 , Celtic +4.
Where there are winners , there must be those who suffered.
FK Partizan 1st to almost worst -17VA , -0.89 PVA , relegated, Boca should have been 3rd -12VA, Dynamo Moscow in 8th pay the price with -6 VA. -9VA for relegated Palace, -8 for 12th place Kazan, -7 for Swansea, -6 for relegated Twente.
Only Olympiacos were relegated who were predicted to be, D4 is this where managerial skill matters the most, perhaps. Will be interesting to see how the various new managers improve these underperforming sides and if the existing managers can get the most from them.
