If you check the international form table at Transfermarkt, you expect to see European giants like Juventus, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and PSG.
But Championship team Burnley FC and League One team Barnsley FC? No, those two clubs have been surprisingly strong during their last 15 league matches and are therefore ranked among the big clubs in the form table.
The Clarets are sitting in fifth place, gaining a total of 36 points from their last 15 league matches. That’s as many as Ligue 1 champions and current leaders PSG. During their run, Burnley have managed to score 31 goals, while conceding just nine, winning 11 games and losing just one match (3-0 at Hull City). No wonder they are now leading the Championship with 71 points.
Meanwhile, the Tykes have done even better, gaining 37 points from their last 15 matches in League One. They scored 32 goals and conceded just 12 on their way to 12 wins and one draw. Therefore, Barnsley were in last place when they started their streak, but are now ranked sixth in the table.
Barnsley are ranked behind just two teams in the form table: Juventus and Barcelona.
The Old Lady have won 14 of their last 15 matches in Serie A, gaining 43 points in the process, while scoring 33 goals and conceding just four. As a consequence, they are once again leading the league.
The Blaugrana won 12 games in Primera Division, while drawing on three occasions, resulting in 39 points. They scored 45 goals and conceded ten during their run, and are on top of the standings.
