Are Liverpool The Best Team In Europe? Stats Rank The Top 50 Clubs In The Continent

The 21/22 season is now behind us, after a season full of dramatic twists and turns. Which club is ranked the best team in Europe?

Liverpool and Manchester City were the two front runners in the Premier League, again battling till the very end to be crowned champions of England. 

Liverpool had won both the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup but fell short in the title race after a monumental come back from Pep Guardiola’s side against Aston Villa on the final day of the season. City have won their fourth title in the five years. 


Jurgen Klopp’s Reds experienced even more disappointment a week later, despite dominating the ball possession and creating more chances, they were beaten 1-0 by Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Paris, a final that was marred by crowd trouble outside the Stade de France. 

Madrid further cemented themselves as the undisputed Kings of Europe as they sealed a 14th European crown. 

According to a list compiled by ClubElo, Liverpool are ranked the best team in Europe despite not winning their domestic league and losing in the European final. 


The list is compiled by ‘Elo’ ratings, which are assigned to each club based on their win probabilities against the other top teams around them.
