The goals scored as a % column is measured in relation to the league champion’s goals in each of the leagues in 2017-2018.

It will be interesting to see how the leadership in the Bundesliga and the Primera are resolved in the next few weeks. In the four other leagues, last year’s champions are displaying the dominance that will make it difficult for others to challenge. Any challenge will need to have an 80%+ win ratio and include frequent goal scoring.
