Diego Costa (6th) was one of eight Atlético de Madrid players

to make the top 50 list, whilst AS Roma (led by Kevin Strootman) and

Juventus (led by Carlos Tevez) each placed seven players, respectively. BSports has also developed pre

and post-game commentary packs along with on-air graphics for

broadcasters including Sky Sports, Channel 4, Turner and Fox in a number

of sports. This BSR includes evaluations on the

defensive performance of a player, such as the effectiveness and

efficiency of the player in key metrics, as well as the performance of

the defensive unit as a whole.

Manchester City were the best represented English team with four players

on the list (Silva, Touré, Demichelis & Hart), with Southampton,

Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid each featuring

three players. “The Power 50 index stirred healthy

debate among fans and experts during its inaugural year, demonstrating a

clear appetite from fans across the globe for advanced football

analytics. Serie A provided the most players from one league (14

players), with the Premier League (13) and La Liga (12) following.

Luis Suarez of Liverpool FC topped the index with a BSports Rating (BSR)

of 86.02. said Bill Squadron,

President of Bloomberg Sports. For more

information go to bsports.com.

The BSports rankings provide the most scientifically-based analysis of

player performance relevant to their respective positions. Bloomberg Sports was named by SportsPro (2014) as one of “50

Companies Shaping World Sport”, by Fast Company (2013/14) as Finalist

for the “Most Innovative Technology Companies in Sport”, and by Mashable

as one of the “Five Most Innovative Sports Brands for 2012″. On the attacking side, there is an

emphasis on a player’s effectiveness and efficiency in passing,

creativity, shooting and scoring, among other more granular areas.

“In this exciting World Cup year, we are pleased today to unveil our

second edition of the BSports Power 50″
