Palmeiras 2nd best in the world in 2020

The IFFHS (International Federation of Football History and Statistics) has appointed Palmeiras the second best club of 2020, only trailing Bayern Munich. Palmeiras is the only South American club among the top ten.  

The survey is drawn up annually and takes performance, victories and scores into account. Among Brazilian clubs, the podium is completed by Grêmio (16th place) and Santos (32nd place).

Needless to say, 2020 was a great year for Palmeiras, bagging the Brazil Cup and the Libertadores Cup. Last time a team from São Paulo reached no. 2 was in 1999 – again Palmeiras, the year we won our first Libertadores.  

Below, the 2020 top 12 clubs according to the IFFHS world ranking:

1st – Bayern Munich (Germany) – 260 points

2nd – Palmeiras (Brazil) – 230

3rd – Paris Saint-Germain (France) – 226

4th – Inter Milan (Italy) – 223

5th – Manchester City (England) – 221

6th – Milan (Italy) -220

7th – Juventus (Italy) – 218

8th – Sevilla (Spain) – 213

9th – Manchester United (England) – 212
