FCB top IFFHS club world ranking

The International Federation of Football History & Statistics (IFFHS) voted Manuel Neuer the World's Best Goalkeeper on 6 January – and now Bayern Munich have won the accolade as the top club in the world. Bayern head the Club World Ranking 2013, which the IFFHS has compiled annually since 1991, based on all club results in competitive competitions. A German side holds top spot for the first time ever – and by a substantial margin, as second-placed Real Madrid are 80 points behind FCB. The third to fifth positions are occupied by Chelsea, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona. 370 points has only been achieved once before in the last 22 years when Juventus clocked up 372 points in 1993.
