1 CIES Football Observatory Monthly Report Issue 21 - January 2017 Who will be champion? A predictive analysis of performance Drs Raffaele Poli, Loïc Ravenel and Roger Besson 1. Introduction The 21st Monthly Report of the CIES Football Observatory presents a predictive analysis of the number of points that each big-5 league club will obtain at the end of the season. In order to do this, we use a multivariate statistical model built on the basis of results observed from the 2011/12 season onwards. The model takes into account the offensive and defensive performances of big-5 league teams until the 31st December of each season, as well as the level of their grip on the game. The analysis highlights that four out of the five current leaders are the most likely champions: Chelsea in the English, Real Madrid in the Spanish, Bayern Munich in the German and Juventus in the Italian. In the French, Monaco should overtake Paris St-Germain and Nice. According to our approach, despite recent wins, Manchester United won t be able to rank higher than sixth. Moreover, Hamburg will be relegated for the first time in its history. Let s us wait a few months to see how accurate these predictions will prove to be. 1

2 2. Defensive performance The defensive performance of a team is primarily measured by taking into account the number of goals conceded. This indicator can be significantly enhanced by including the number of shots conceded by teams from inside their own box. Indeed, any teams that are successful defensively in the long run not only concede few goals, but are also able to prevent as much as possible their adversaries from shooting from close range. Up until the 31st December 2016, the lowest value in terms of goals conceded per match at big-5 league level was measured for Bayern Munich. The highest value was recorded for Cagliari. The biggest gap within a league was observed in the English between Chelsea and Swansea. Figure 1: maximum and minimum values per league, goals conceded * per match 1. Chelsea FC Tottenham Hotspur FC Manchester United FC Sunderland AFC Hull City AFC Swansea City AFC Villarreal CF Club Atlético de Madrid Real Madrid CF Granada CF Real Sporting de Gijón CA Osasuna OGC Nice Paris St-Germain FC AS St-Etienne SM Caen FC Metz FC Lorient FC Bayern München Eintracht Frankfurt RB Leipzig FSV Mainz Hamburger SV SV Werder Bremen Juventus FC AS Roma AC Chievo Verona Palermo US Pescara Calcio Cagliari Calcio 2.33 * Not including own-goals 2

3 The big-5 league team having conceded the most shots from within its own box is Hull City. At the other extreme, Liverpool conceded the least. The other teams by league having left their adversaries with the fewest chances to shoot from short range are Atlético Madrid, Paris St-Germain, Bayern and Juventus. Figure 2: maximum and minimum values by league, short-range shots conceded per match 1. Liverpool FC Manchester United FC Manchester City FC Burnley FC Sunderland AFC Hull City AFC Club Atlético de Madrid FC Barcelona 5.5. Real Madrid CF Real Sporting de Gijón CA Osasuna Granada CF Paris St-Germain FC FC Nantes 5.7. Toulouse FC OGC Nice FC Metz Dijon FCO FC Bayern München RB Leipzig BV 09 Borussia Dortmund SV Darmstadt SV Werder Bremen Hamburger SV Juventus FC SSC Napoli Atalanta BC Palermo US Torino Calcio Empoli FC

4 3. Grip on the game A team s strength is also measured by its capacity to keep possession of the ball. The indicator of the number of successful passes is very useful in this regard. Moreover, teams who are successful over the long term are capable of territorial domination. In this case, the indicator of the number of successful passes in the opposite half is particularly relevant. The record number of passes per match up until the 31st December was recorded for Bayern Munich: 635. This value is 3.5 times higher than that observed for Darmstadt. The other clubs by league having achieved the least number of passes per match are West Bromwich Albion, Osasuna, Nancy and Crotone. Figure 3: maximum and minimum values by league, successful passes per match 1. Liverpool FC Manchester City FC Arsenal FC Sunderland AFC Burnley FC West Bromwich Albion FC FC Barcelona Real Madrid CF UD Las Palmas RCD Espanyol 266. CD Leganés CA Osasuna Paris St-Germain FC OGC Nice Olympique Lyonnais SC Bastia FC Metz AS Nancy-Lorraine FC Bayern München BV 09 Borussia Dortmund VfL Borussia M gladbach Hamburger SV FSV Mainz SV Darmstadt SSC Napoli AC Fiorentina Juventus FC Udinese Calcio Cagliari Calcio FC Crotone 222 4

5 Bayern Munich is also the club that made the most successful passes in the opponents half of the pitch. This result reflects the ability of the Bavarian team to territorially dominate their adversaries. Barcelona, Naples and Arsenal also made more than 300 successful passes per match in the opposite half of the pitch. Figure 4: maximum and minimum values by league, successful passes in the opposite half 1. Arsenal FC Liverpool FC Manchester City FC Sunderland AFC West Bromwich Albion FC Burnley FC FC Barcelona Real Madrid CF Club Atlético de Madrid CD Alavés CA Osasuna RCD Espanyol Paris St-Germain FC Stade Rennais FC Olympique Lyonnais FC Metz SC Bastia AS Nancy-Lorraine FC Bayern München BV 09 Borussia Dortmund Bayer 04 Leverkusen Hamburger SV FSV Mainz SV Darmstadt SSC Napoli Internazionale Milano FC AS Roma Udinese Calcio Cagliari Calcio FC Crotone 117 5

6 4. Offensive performance Goals are of fundamental importance in football. Similar to goals conceded, the indicator of the number of goals scored is a reasonably accurate reflection of the clubs level. The ability of teams to shoot after penetrating their opponents box is also a very useful indicator to estimate the offensive abilities beyond the role played by chance. Monaco is top of the rankings for the number of goals scored per match. Only two other teams in the big-5 scored more than 2.5 goals per game: Real Madrid and Barcelona. At the other end of the spectrum, the offensive sterility of Empoli is noteworthy. Similarly, Nantes, Darmstadt and Pescara scored less than 0.7 goals per match. Figure 5: maximum and minimum values by league, goals scored * per match 1. Liverpool FC Chelsea FC Arsenal FC Middlesbrough FC Hull City AFC Sunderland AFC Real Madrid CF FC Barcelona Sevilla FC Granada CF CD Leganés CA Osasuna AS Monaco Paris St-Germain FC Olympique Lyonnais AS Nancy-Lorraine Angers SCO FC Nantes FC Bayern München BV 09 Borussia Dortmund RB Leipzig Hamburger SV FC Augsburg SV Darmstadt SSC Napoli AS Roma Juventus FC FC Crotone Pescara Calcio Empoli FC 0.56 * Not including own-goals 6

7 No big-5 league team attempted as many shots from within their opponents box as Real Madrid. The other top performing teams in this area by league are Liverpool, Paris St-Germain, Bayern and Rome. Palermo s supporters have, on the other hand, every right to be worried. The same holds true for clubs at the bottom of the tables in their respective leagues. Figure 6: maximum and minimum values by league, short-range shots taken per match 1. Liverpool FC Manchester United FC Manchester City FC Hull City AFC Burnley FC Middlesbrough FC Real Madrid CF FC Barcelona Sevilla FC Real Sporting de Gijón 5.0. Granada CF 5.0.

FC Metz AS Nancy-Lorraine FC Bayern München RB Leipzig BV 09 Borussia Dortmund Hertha BSC Berlin SV Darmstadt FC Augsburg AS Roma Internazionale Milano FC Juventus FC Empoli FC Bologna FC Palermo US 5.0 7

8 5. Conclusion In order to predict the outcome of the championships, we took into account results observed between 2011/12 and 2015/16 (five seasons). The above-mentioned indicators were integrated within a multivariate statistical model estimating points achieved in the second half of the season. The predicted final rankings result from the addition between points achieved up until December 31st and points estimated using the model for the remaining half of the season. Although scientifically sound, it goes without saying that this predictive exercise can only, at best, get as close as possible to what will actually transpire. We must indeed always allow for the role of chance in football. Anyway, according to our statistical model, the final rankings of the big-5 leagues will be the following. Figure 7: final rankings according to the CIES Football Observatory predictive model 1. Chelsea 88 1 = 2. Liverpool 86 2 = 3. Man. City Arsenal Tottenham Man. United 73 6 = 7. Everton 55 7 = 8.
