Bloomberg Sports (BSports), the world’s leaders in sports analytic technology, today unveiled the 2013/14 edition of the “BSports Power 50”, the most advanced data-driven ranking of individual player performances across Europe’s top five leagues. The rankings provide a purely objective analysis that evaluates players in their respective positions and considers the context of opponent strength in each game throughout the season. The full BSports list of players can be found at www.bsports.com/Power50 along with a more detailed explanation of the methodology.
“In this exciting World Cup year, we are pleased today to unveil our second edition of the BSports Power 50”. said Bill Squadron, President of Bloomberg Sports. “The Power 50 index stirred healthy debate among fans and experts during its inaugural year, demonstrating a clear appetite from fans across the globe for advanced football analytics. This index, evaluating players purely from the data, has become a reliable measuring stick for player performance in the minds of the fans.”
Luis Suarez of Liverpool FC topped the index with a BSports Rating (BSR) of 86.02. Lionel Messi (85.43) beat Zlatan Ibrahimovic (84.91) into second place and Cristiano Ronaldo (84.59) of Champions League finalists Real Madrid ranks fourth. The comprehensive index covers the entire 2013-2014 season, highlighting the performances of some of the world’s most recognized and lauded players, along with some of the sport’s rising stars.
• TOP 5:
|Suarez, Messi, Ibrahimovic, Ronaldo, Strootman|
|Serie A (14), Premier League (13), La Liga (12), Bundesliga (6), Ligue 1 (5)|
|Atlético de Madrid (8), AS Roma (7), Juventus (7), Manchester City (4)|
|Italian (7), English (5), Spanish (5), Brazilian (5), French (4)|
• WORLD CUP:

Diego Costa (6th) was one of eight Atlético de Madrid players to make the top 50 list, whilst AS Roma (led by Kevin Strootman) and Juventus (led by Carlos Tevez) each placed seven players, respectively. Manchester City were the best represented English team with four players on the list (Silva, Touré, Demichelis & Hart), with Southampton, Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid each featuring three players. Serie A provided the most players from one league (14 players), with the Premier League (13) and La Liga (12) following.
The BSports rankings provide the most scientifically-based analysis of player performance relevant to their respective positions. The system evaluates the thousands of data points collected during every match and analyses players based on their core responsibilities on the field to produce a BSports Rating (BSR). This BSR includes evaluations on the defensive performance of a player, such as the effectiveness and efficiency of the player in key metrics, as well as the performance of the defensive unit as a whole. On the attacking side, there is an emphasis on a player’s effectiveness and efficiency in passing, creativity, shooting and scoring, among other more granular areas.
