Inter and Lazio back in the title race.
Not so sure about that. Juve's slip up doesn't matter much with the above dropping points as well.

and instead we buy garbage Sturridge from Shitty and we also bought Zhirkov, lolol what a shit window other than Matic who of course went on to later (January 2011) buy Dzeko

I quite liked Sturridge. Torres being picked over him in 12/13 is the only time I've ever (systematically) ranted during my time here.

Dzeko was a vastly superior player

Well, it keep things interesting at the very least. Inter only 3 points behind and Lazio have a game in hand. Thought the Serie A title race would be over had Juventus won tonight.

True. Just delaying the inevitable, though

CIES Football Observatory

n°281 - 27/01/2020

Performance

 

Efficiency rankings in 31 European leagues

Issue number 281 of the CIES Football Observatory Weekly Post compares points achieved by teams from 31 European leagues with points expected according to a statistical model taking into account ball possession, as well as the number and distance of both shots taken and conceded as per InStat data. The analysis highlights the great efficiency of clubs such as Benfica (+0.71 points per match), Liverpool (+0.66), Juventus (+0.64), Schalke 04 (+0.57) and Valencia (+0.55).

The pitch production of Benfica should have allowed them to achieve 2.11 points per match compared to 2.82 in reality. The greatest positive gap out of the 496 clubs from the 31 leagues surveyed was recorded for Astra Giurgiu (+0.85). The Romanian side obtained almost two points per match despite having conceded more shots than those taken and having had only about 45% of ball possession. The same holds true for Turkish league leader Sivaspor (+0.73).

The greatest negative gap overall was registered for Heart of Midlothian: 0.62 points achieved compared to 1.39 expected (-0.77). Champions League round of 16 participants Atalanta (-0.71) and Napoli (-0.61) were also particularly inefficient with respect to their pitch production. Manchester City (-0.36) and Chelsea (-0.33) are at the bottom of the Premier League efficiency rankings. More exclusive InStat data is accessible in the CIES Football Observatory Performance Atlas.

Gap between points per match achieved and expected, season 2019/20

Domestic league matches until 20/01/2020. Data: InStat.
