Tidenes beste lag?

Mange har hyllet Barcelona som tidenes beste lag de seneste par årene - og laget har definitivt dominert internasjonal fotball.

Årets sesong har imidlertid muligens satt en ny standard. Barcelonas erkerivaler Real Madrid har nemlig levert en sesong som slår omtrent alle rekorder.

Spørsmålet er derfor om ikke vi har fått en ny kandidat til tidenes lag?



Tidenes beste lag?



Jose Mourinho sier alltid at lagene han trener blir bedre det andre året. Årets sesong kunne nesten ikke understreket hans poeng bedre. Ni poengs margin ned til Barcelona i toppen av La Liga og bare en tapt straffekonkurranse unna mesterliga-finalen! Våre tall viser faktisk at årets Real Madrid-lag muligens er tidenes beste lag?

Real Madrid’s Record-breaking Season

After three seasons of dominance by Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona, Real Madrid finally broke the Blaugrana’s stranglehold on the Spanish league this season by winning it for the first time since 2008. More impressive though was the nature of their win, as they became the first team in any of Europe’s top-five leagues ever to reach the 100-point milestone:

Data adjusted so that 3pts = win

Worryingly for Spain’s other teams, three of the other six sides to have reached 96pts+ have been Real Madrid and Barcelona in the two seasons prior to this one, including a 96 point haul by the Madrid side who finished just second in 2009/10.

On top of this, José Mourinho’s side also set a record for the most goals scored in a single edition of the Spanish top-flight by firing in a total of 121 goals, the fourth-highest ever seen in Europe’s top five leagues, and the most since Torino scored 125 in Italy in 1947/48. However, no other team in the big European leagues has scored as many goals in a season with 38 matches – ever..

While Barcelona are still the masters when it comes to dominating possession, with an average of 69.8% in their La Liga games this season compared to 59.4% for Madrid, the Merengues’ real strength has been their unrivalled ability to create chances, having fired in 732 shots this season, over 100 more than their nearest rivals in the Spanish top flight:
