With the end of the Serie A won by Juventus, we present you the relationship between the squads’ market value and the league standings as well as the impact on that valuation due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The big winner in this analysis is undoubtedly Hellas Verona, reaching the 9th position in the championship, presenting the squad with the lowest market value (27 million Euros on 07/2019 and 107 million on 07/2020). The good performances of Miguel Veloso, Marco Faraoni, Darko Lazovic and Amir Rrahmani contributed to this achievement. We recall that Hellas Verona, this season, also presented the 2nd lowest average salary per player in the competition as we previously presented here.
Parma also stood out, reaching 11th place in the championship with the 3rd least valued squad at the beginning of the competition and the 5th lowest average salary per player in the Serie A. In the season that has now ended, Dejan Kulusevski, Andreas Cornelius and Juraj Kucka stood out.
On the other hand, the biggest disappointments turned out to be Torino which, with a squad currently valued at around 147 million Euros and the 9th most valued squad at the beginning of the season, was unable to abandon the 16th place in the Italian league.
Between the 1st of April and the 15th of June, the market values of the squads suffered an abrupt drop due to the pandemic, around 19%, with Juventus being the most harmed due to the devaluation of its players by about 141 million Euros. With the resumption of the championships, these values have been slowly rising in some cases.
