Real Madrid launches challenge to Bayern!

Sport Lisboa e Benfica – the World’s Club Team of the Month for February 2014

FC Bayern München keeps on leading the Club World Ranking with authority, but Real Madrid reached more than 300 points and now is the great rival for Bavarian club. FC Barcelona is now in third place, meanwhile Chelsea FC, with a draw match in Istanbul, and Club Atlético de Madrid, who fell in domestic cup, lose one position.

As no unexpected results for continental competitions, the most influential changes in the Club World Ranking were motivated by deleting points from February 2013. It means the 6 places fall for Paris Saint-Germain FC. New teams in the top-10 are Club Independiente Santa Fe CD (5 places jump), ACF Fiorentina (9 places) and BV Borussia 09 Dortmund (4 places). Important jump for FC Salzburg up to 21st place from 42nd. AS Monaco made the greatest jump into top-200, with 139 places with only domestic points adding.

The World’s Club Team of the Month for February was Sport Lisboa e Benfica, with worldwide highest number of points, 42,5. The Eagles from Lisboa won the two Europa League matches and conceded only one draw in domestic League. They were ahead FC Bayern München (42 points), Club Independiente Santa Fe CD (41,5 points), Real Madrid CF (40 points) and SSC Napoli (40 points).

In the Club World Ranking “Top 100″ there are clubs from 38 countries: 65 clubs from the UEFA, 20 from the CONMEBOL, nine from the AFC, four from the CONCACAF, two from the CAF and none from the OFC.
