The Ranking made as per trophy winning calculations, that is why it is said power ranking. The ranking for top ten football clubs are given below –

1. Barcelona

Another trophy for Luis Enrique and Barca this week as a 3-0 rout of River Plate earned them the 2015 Club World Cup. That makes it five in the calendar year along with La Liga, the Copa del Rey, European Super Cup and UEFA Champions League: no easy feat in the modern era. Luis Suarez scored twice and Lionel Messi scored once in the comfortable victory while Neymar played provider: Expect that theme to continue well into 2016 as it has done all season.

2. Bayern Munich

It wasn’t the most commanding week for the Bundesliga giants as football’s worst-kept secret — Pep Guardiola’s departure at the end of the season — finally emerged. Carlo Ancelotti has already been named as his successor, but all the excitement culminated in a rather anxious 1-0 win at relegation-threatened Hannover, thanks to Thomas Muller’s penalty. The Bavarians head into the winter break with a commanding eight-point lead atop the table and will hope to emerge in January with a much healthier team: Guardiola only named four substitutes, one of whom was a goalkeeper, for Saturday’s game.

3. Paris Saint-Germain

Will Laurent Blanc’s side be the first in Europe to clinch their league title? With a gargantuan 19-point gap after 19 games, it seems likely. Angel Di Maria scored twice and Zlatan Ibrahimovic once in their 3-0 win over fourth-place Caen, with their focus surely on the Champions League to provide this season’s stiffest test.

4. Real Madrid

Typical fun and chaos from Los Blancos this weekend: a stunning early 2-1 deficit at home to minnows Rayo Vallecano soon turned into a rampaging 10-2 victory but all the goals in the world still weren’t enough to appease the home fans. Two red cards helped their cause in the first half, before four goals from Gareth Bale, three from Karim Benzema made for an eye-opening (and goal difference-boosting) result. It still might not be enough to save Rafa Benitez’s job, mind you.

5. Atletico Madrid

Not the greatest week for Diego Simeone & Co., losing 1-0 at Malaga to an 87th-minute goal in a game that also saw the always useful Gabi sent off for two yellow cards. The defeat cost them a chance to open a tiny gap at the top of La Liga but still, being tied for first with Barca isn’t a bad early Christmas present.

6. Leicester City

Can anyone stop the Foxes? Every week offers a fresh challenge, but every week, Claudio Ranieri’s side rise above. A pair of Riyad Mahrez penalties led to a nervy 3-2 win at Everton that keeps Leicester top of the league at Christmas. It’s a remarkable turnaround from their last-place this time last year and proof that something truly special might be happening at the King Power Stadium this season.

7. Arsenal

Is this Arsenal’s year after all? The North London side haven’t won the Premier League since their Invincibles season of 2003-04 and with all their expected rivals struggling, the omens are good. We’ve said this before about their pre-Christmas form, but their 2-1 win over chasers Man City on Monday night was a stylish, confident rebuttal to the usual creeping doubts. Mesut Ozil notched yet more assists in a season deserving of individual awards.

8. Juventus

Look out, Serie A: Juve are coming. An early 1-0 deficit at Carpi on Sunday was no big deal as goals from Mario Mandzukic and two from Paul Pogba turned it into a 3-2 win (Leonardo Bonucci’s injury time own goal was too little, too late for their opponents). Seven straight league wins have vaulted Massimiliano Allegri’s side up to fourth, just three points behind Inter Milan. They’ll surely push Bayern to the limit in the Champions League round of 16, too.

9. Fiorentina

Paulo Sousa’s side may be living in the shadows of Inter Milan and Juve, but they have been every bit as impressive this season. Last weekend’s 2-0 win vs. Chievo was simple enough but kept them in second place just a point behind Roberto Mancini’s rebuilt Nerazzurri, who lost at Lazio.

10. Borussia Dortmund

Thomas Tuchel deserves endless praise for restoring Dortmund to their expected perch directly beneath Bayern, but it wasn’t enough to prevent a disappointing 2-1 defeat at Cologne on Saturday. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored his 18th goal of the Bundesliga season to give BVB an early lead, but two goals in the final seven minutes gave their mid-table hosts all three points. It’s the kind of result that upsets but doesn’t concern in the long-term, though it does drop them down the rankings.
