Will they pirate it in Portugal yet? The lab points continue to flow for the Netherlands, who week after week have a higher chance of being among the top six in Europe at the start of next season. That could lead to an additional European ticket in 2024. In the short term, we can cherish the top spot for this season.
Ajax opened the ball in the Champions League this week and earned 0.400 points for the Netherlands with a resounding victory over Borussia Dortmund. However, combined PSG and Lille OSC each get half a point for France – two points for PSG’s win over RB Leipzig, and one point for Lille’s draw against Sevilla, divided by six equals 0.500 – and Portugal can add two-thirds (0.667), because FC Porto and Sporting Portugal won the European Champions League.
The Netherlands managed the European League and Conference League evening fine: Feyenoord, Vitesse and Arizona also contributed 0.400 in total. Portugal can only contribute to Sporting Braga’s win by 0.333. The only drawback of this evening was the defeat of PSV Eindhoven against Monaco, as a result of which France again managed to slightly overpower the Netherlands. But if we look at the hypothetical schedule for next season, the Netherlands has once again nibbled 0.600 points from its deficit against Portugal.
Lab ranking sub-rank in 2022/2023 (default mode)
5- France 581 36
6- Portugal 36,550
7- Holland 35200
For completeness: This is what the current top fifteen of the modulus of order looks like. At the moment, the Netherlands are at a considerable distance from France and Portugal, but after this season they have to hand over much less points than these two countries, and therefore are increasingly catching up.
