With no Champions League or Europa League action last week, there was little change to the top 20 of our elite ranking of the continent's sides.
Indeed, it is as-you-were for the top eight sides, with all of them registering victories in domestic competitions over the weekend.
Barcelona, courtesy of their 5-4 win over Deportivo La Coruna, extended their lead over rivals Real Madrid at the summit by 12 points, while Edin Dzeko's late brace at West Brom helped Manchester City close the gap on fourth-placed Bayern Munich.
Manchester United's win over Stoke saw them consolidate third place as Chelsea's 4-2 away win over Tottenham saw them pull away from Atletico Madrid in seventh.
Arsenal's performance at Norwich also stood out, if for the wrong reasons. Defeat at Carrow Road saw Arsene Wenger's side drop a place to 10th, with Borussia Dortmund the beneficiaries of the Gunners' insipid display, the Bundesliga club narrowly flip-flopping into ninth, despite defeat at home to Schalke on Saturday.
That win for Schalke meant they were the biggest movers, jumping two to 18th, with Zenit St. Petersburg and Lyon each bumped down a place on the ladder.
The only other movers this week were Valencia and AC Milan, who swapped places in 14th15th, but with the return of European action this week, expect plenty more movement over the next seven days.
HOW IT WORKS
To determine our Power Rankings, we use the Euro Club Index, which scientifically analyses hundreds of thousands of matches from the top divisions in all European nations as well as Europa League and Champions League games.
The Index takes into account all matches played over an eight-year period but with recent results carrying more weight than older ones.
The performance of a league's teams in the Champions League and Europa League reflects the rise or fall of the sporting level in that league.
So, for example, if English teams perform well in Europe, all Premier League teams receive a small bonus in their ECI score. The ranking and its predictive power are thus made even more accurate.
