Chilean Primera Division Weekly Rankings

With just days to go until the 2013 Apertura season kicks off, Sport/Life has looked at the form of teams coming into the season. We will used the group stages of the Copa Chile competition, as well as performances in the regular season in 2012 and 2013 to create the base for the ranking.

A new ranking will be prepared every week. With the final encounters of the group stage in the Copa Chile still to come, the rankings table has a number of surprises due to poor performances from some of the leading clubs.

Positive results in the Copa Chile see four Primera B teams in the top 10 of the ranking.

  1. So Union Espanola is ranked twentieth despite winning the last championship, being runner up in the one previously and a semi-finalist in the last edition of the Copa Chile. System is a little flawed and too much weight given to the recent Copa Chile matches it seems.

    The ranking is based on current momentum, and with no competition on at the moment, the only focus is on the Copa Chile. (UE are at the top of the non-Copa Chile rankings, which can be season at the rankings page.

    Using that as a base though, there will never be any change between the A and B teams (though I plan to use that just for the A teams as an experiment). Like all ranking schemes it is hugely flawed, though the process is very simple. I may review the Copa Chile adjustments as I only calculated on wins/losses and draws were skipped.

    The key though is that the real ranking will begin next week, and will be a calculation throughout the rest of the year of a team’s total ranking. The experiment is to see if the team who (according to the ranking), has the most momentum throughout the year, wins the competition.

    PS – If you lose to a team in the B, the momentum slows. Enough fighting, more goals!!
