The Euro Club Index (ECI) is a point-based ranking system that looks to predict the results of football matches in the near future. The analysis conducted is done in a way to maximize its predictive force.
Points are allotted to teams based on how they perform in every game they play; additional points are given if they perform better than expected. Conversely, they drop down the table if they perform worse than expected.
The Amsterdam based experts recently released their English Premier League predictions and unsurprisingly, a tight race to the title is expected, as is a maiden Premier League win for Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have been on fire this season, and many have tipped them to be the league’s dark horses. Based on these rankings, they are now the clear cut favourites.
