Season 16 Division 2 stats and facts.

Internacional, Levante ,Southampton for the automatic slot with a raft of teams for the playoffs.

Alarmingly no team who could get promoted from D2 would finish outside the relegation zone in D1, so D2 teams have a hard job in balancing promotion and squad improvement.

Internacional are a solid 90 and have good depth, clear favourites for the top spot,  Levante are stronger in midfield and attack but less so at the back.   Southampton are the strongest attacking team and have a decent defence / midfield balance. Werder and Everton sit a little above the rest of the playoff pack, both going for attacking prowess to progress and maybe upset the top 3.

Spurs go for the balanced approach with Liverpool arguably more attack minded.  Lots of teams have a lot of depth, Santos could well manage a great cup run and AC Milan could finish higher if they can score a few.

Last year around 219 was relegation zone, so Roma will struggle although they are surely a work in progress. Newcastle and Galatasaray are weak at the back, with Schalke having midfield problems.
