Serie A is the most competitive League in the world, according to statistics released today.

Italy's top-flight pushed the English Premiership into second place and Spain’s La Liga into third, according to the International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS).

The IFFHS looked at how close the race to be crowed champions was, as well as the chase to avoid relegation and for the Champions’ League places.

The Scudetto was decided in Week 37, a week before the close of the season, while the Premiership and La Liga titles were decided well before.

They also looked at the number of foreign players in each League, as well as how highly the League is viewed from abroad, and awarded points accordingly.

Italy 594 points

England 587

This decides whos better what a load of garbage....

EPL beats the balls out of Serie A... Serie A wow 3 good teams Inter, AC, Juventus.....Your best team lost to are like 6th...

Who cares about forigners I don't care if they are from the Camen Islands as long as they play well.

1. EPL littered with good teams

2. Serie A

3. Bundesliga

4. La Liga

Bunesliga and La Liga imo are highly debateable.

it would be better if it was also explained at on what basis these points and rankings were awarded.

This is a joke. Colombia above Bundesliga? not even france or netherlands deserve to be above the bundesliga. Can't comment to much about argentina and brazil because i don't watch those matches.

Yea seriously that doesn't make sense. The Bundesliga has very high standards of football. It is one of the top 5 in the world for sure. The only ones equal or better are the EPL, Serie A, and Spanish Liga. (Maybe the French if you want to debate it)
