International comparison of point and goal deviations
In this category, international comparisons are to be made in terms of point and goal deviations on average. Originally, it was said that the German leagues (the LigEN) are more exciting than others because they are less predictable. This could be reflected in the changes in tendency (another category also to be found here), but also in the point and goal deviations. If these are very high, then there have been many surprises, on the one hand in the sense of “who wins?” on the other hand in the sense of high, sensational results, regardless of who wins. This provides entertainment, of which there is too little, according to the generally held view here. Football has become a pure fan sport in which one supports one’s team unconditionally, but is no longer interested in the course of the game or beautiful actions, exciting moments.

The league of the biggest surprises is the 2nd Bundesliga. The 1st division does not have so much to offer this season, is in the midfield. In Spain, the teams play most by the book, if you like.

Both German leagues ahead, confirming that there were the most surprises, at least in terms of the amount of results. They even have a certain lead, which suggests that either when you have clear leads you just keep playing forward, regardless of whether you then concede some yourself or not, or which could mean that teams that are clearly behind let themselves give up and get slaughtered. In Germany, it probably looks more like version 1 of that.
Now the French have taken the rank of the best possible results management.
