On Tuesday night Napoli beat Feyenoord 3-1, while on Wednesday night Juventus registered 2-0 win over Olympiakos with Roma defeating Qarabag 2-1. The results marked the first day since September 2011, where all three Italy’s representatives registered wins. UEFA rankings which are done based on a five year total, with the total points accumulated divided by all sides playing in European competition in a particular season.

All six Italian sides are still in Europe, while SC Freiburg were eliminated from the Europa League by Domžale. If the season were to end now, Serie A would have 64.082 points on the five-year average, with the Bundesliga on 63.998. England’s Premier League currently sits on 66.034, with La Liga way out in front on 92.712.

Serie A will pass the Premier League for 2019 if Italian clubs outperform their English counterparts, as the 2013-14 season will drop out of the five-year total.

Ligue 1 is currently ranked fifth by UEFA coefficient, but with 48.748 points the French league isn’t going to catch any of the top four in the near future.
