The Strongest National League of the World:

German Bundesliga climbed positions and got the third place clearly. Argentina’s Primera División was the best of South America and got the fourth place. French Ligue 1 had a better performance than years before and now is the 5th strongest league, surpassing Serie A from Brazil.
