Thanks to the partnership with the leading football data company InStat, the CIES Football Observatory presents the rankings of the best performing clubs from 35 European competitions in three areas of the game: defence (shots conceded from the box), ball mastery (% of possession) and attack (shots on target). Data refers to domestic league games of the current season for ongoing championships and last season’s matches for completed competitions.
The Digital Atlas is an exclusive tool developed by the CIES Football Observatory allowing anyone to compare the squad make-up of teams in 31 top division leagues of UEFA member associations. All indicators are weighted according to minutes played by footballers in domestic league matches since the start of the current season. The definitions are presented within the tool.
This calculator allows anyone to estimate the transfer value of big-5 league players. The calculations are undertaken on the basis of an algorithm created from more than 1,500 fee paying transfers which occurred during the previous five seasons. A more sophisticated version (see research note) is used for the ratings module and within the framework of commercial mandates.
