Real and Atlético prepared to assault the first place!

Club Atlético de Madrid – the World’s Club Team of the Month for April 2014

The semifinals of the UEFA League Champions opened new chances to be the winner of the Club World Ranking 2014. After month of undisputed dominance of FC Bayern, it will be very difficult to keep his 1st place in the Club World Ranking for December 2014. Bayern FC achieved 70 points from last two games in UEFA Champion’s League (May 2013), UEFA Supercup (August 2013) and FIFA Club World Cup (December 2013) that can not be accounted for December 2014. Now Real Madrid and Club Atlético de Madrid achieved more than 300 points.

CA Lanús and Club Atlético Nacional de Medellín are surprisingly 4th and 5th in the Club World Ranking. This is due to both teams had a great performance in Copa Libertadores 2014 and Copa Sudamericana 2013. Argentines were the winners in Copa Sudamericana and Colombians got quarter-finals. We must take in consideration that the points from Copa Sudamericana will be deleted when December 2014 and presumably these teams will lose points and places.

Another important new presence was Sevilla FC. The team of Unai Emery had a great performance in domestic league also Europa League. Now Andalucians are very close from FC Barcelona, who loses 3 places. FC Juventus and SL Benfica, both semifinalists in Europa League, enter in top-10

It should be noted that the points of this Club World Ranking in April 2014 are increased by the influence of the World Cup calendar. Domestic cups and continental competitions played in April many matches when usually they are played for May. It means that many points are duplicated. For May 2014 many of these disruptive factors will be corrected by the update.

The World’s Club Team of the Month for April is Club Atlético de Madrid, with 58 points, ahead SL Benfica Lisboa 53 points, Cruzeiro EC Belo Horizonte 41 points and Pohan Steelers, Republic of Korea, 36 points. The rojiblancos got a great performance in UEFA Champion’s League and domestic League. The “game-by-game ” mentality of Diego Simeone keeps alive the dream. Real Madrid CF achieved 66 points in April 2014, but they loosed a match in Dortmund and this prevents eligible for this distinction.

In the “Top 100″ there are clubs from 37 countries: 63 clubs from the UEFA, 24 from the CONMEBOL, six from the AFC, five from the CONCACAF, two from the CAF and none from the OFC. The following leagues are represented by the most clubs in the “Top 100″: Spain (7), Brazil (6), England (6), Italy (6), Argentina (5), Germany (5), Mexico (5), Paraguay (4), and Ukraine (4).
