    HOW IT WORKS
    Scores are based on points per game in domestic league and European games. Domestic points per game are multiplied by the league coefficient - either 4, 4.5 or 5 - with teams in stronger leagues getting more credit.

    Champions League (or Super Cup) victories are counted from the third qualifying round onward as three points for a win and multiplied by a coefficient of 5.

    UEFA Cup victories are counted from the first round as three points for a win and multiplied by a coefficient of 4.

    Domestic and European totals are then added together. If a side has played in both Champions League and UEFA Cup, its European total is an average of the two scores.

    League coefficients:

    England, Spain, Italy = 5

    Germany, Portugal, France = 4.5

    Others = 4

    Example: Manchester United

    80 points from 34 Premier League games = 2.35 points per game.

    Multiplied by league coefficient of five - 2.35 x 5 = 11.76

    26 points from 10 Champions League games (including qualifying) = 2.60 points per game.

    Multiplied by Champions League coefficient of five - 12.50

    Total score = 11.76 + 12.50 = 24.76
