There are 3 clear favourites for the top 3 spots. Partizan have a great midfield and attack and they have the lead in the stats, closely followed by Dynamo Moscow who are a more defensive set up. FC Augsburg have an attack to fear but are more vunerable at the back than the other two. As a whole the league is slightly weaker but the challenge at the top is much as last season. Looks like around 218 is needed to survive D3 so a whole host of teams could get promoted and do well the following season.
Villareal look a strong prospect with plenty of depth, Feyenoord look like they could mount a strong challenge. While last season was a little odd , around 217.5 would leave you in relegation risk. Lokomotiv have too weak a defence and little depth, they could struggle. Celta need to sort themselves a keeper rapido. Atalanta and Cruziero have a decent enough attack but remain vunerable at the back.
