Football can provide a number of different things to a whole host of people all around the world, which is just one of the reasons why it is called “the beautiful game” – at least, it should be.

There is the sheer enjoyment that can be brought from the competitive nature that the professional game provides fans and players, whilst there are others that love the emotional rollercoaster that can be experienced throughout the 90 minutes (sometimes more) as you’ll experience every single one as you would with the weather in the United Kingdom on just one day. Those that experience the worst weather, though, should just look to play at an American online casino and pass the time that way.

Data analysis is also a huge thing that has emerged recently, with sites such as TotalFootballAnalysis booming because of how popular the sector has become, so it is no surprise that another company has decided to take it upon themselves to provide everyone with an interesting list.

Those who are familiar with the supercomputer outcomes will already be aware of fivethirtyeight.com and their work, so it does not come as a surprise that they have decided to try and analyse which clubs are the top 30 in the world.

Their system works by working out the attacking and defensive ratings based on how many goals they are expected to score and concede. With these ratings then worked out, analysts are then able to predict which clubs are going to do well and compare to their competitors.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Manchester City are ranked as the number one side in world football at the moment, with Pep Guardiola’s side ranked just above his former team, FC Bayern Munich.

Another of this ex-teams, FC Barcelona, round off the top 5, although the Spaniards are behind Liverpool (3rd) and current UEFA Champions League Champions, Chelsea (4th).

Real Madrid take sixth, whilst Ajax, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig finish off the top 10. Did Lionel Messi leave a better club for a worse one?! Don’t you dare make that mistake when looking for an online casino real money can be won from!

In addition to the four English teams to have already been announced in the top 10, a further five appear inside the top 30 with Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Everton, Leicester City and West Ham United all involved.

According to the data analysts, Manchester City are predicted to win both the UEFA Champions League and Premier League this season, which is perhaps why it is not a surprise to see them be ranked as the number one club in the world at the moment based on the data.
