In Focus - AIB Superleague

As the AIB Superleague reaches the end of season run in, and with the college term taking a break for two weeks now, the AIB Superleague certainly isn't taking a break and is only beginning to hotten up as there is plenty to be decided between now and the end of the season at the start of May.AIB Superleague

There are still the three leagues to be decided as well as the AIB League Cup and AIB Cup.

Who will be crowned champions? We take a look at who is currently in the running to take the end of season honours.

AIB Premier Saturday:

With five games still to play the league is certainly hotting up with three teams looking to be in contention. "Two Goals One Cup" look the current favourites with a two point lead however they are closely followed by "FC Schustigan" and "Gok Wanderers" who are just two points off the top, however "Gok Wanderers" have played an extra game.

AIB Division One Saturday:

In another tight division "Pimp Juice" are the current leaders, however fellow veterans of the Superleague the "Hilltown Chieftains" are hot on their tails but crucially are five points behind with two games in hand. It is often said that points on the board are worth more than games in hand and only time will tell whether this will be the case this year. The Sporting Beerbellies also hold an outside chance of silverware with five games remaining but will have to win all their remaining games to give them any chance of overhauling the four point gap.

AIB Premier Sunday:

In contrast to the other two divisions, the AIB Premier Sunday division looks like "Schindlers Assists" to lose at this stage as they hold a four point lead at the top of the table as well as having a game in hand from reigning champions Futbolito.

AIB League Cup:

The league cup has also entered the closing stages with the quarter finals due to take place over the coming weeks.

AIB Cup:

The AIB Cup will get underway after Easter with the first round of games due to be played the weekend of the 8th and 9th of April.

Superleague Stat Attack

We also take a look at all the divisions to see which division either has the best goal scorers or the leakiest defences!

By virtue of the fact that the most games have been played in the Premier Sunday division, in the 142 games played there has been an amazing 775 goals scored which averages at 5.46 goals per game! This is however the lowest of the three divisions when we consider goals per game with only 5.46 goals scored on average per game, compared to 5.59 goals per game in Division 1 Saturday. However, despite all this the title of the best strikers in the league goes to the Premier Saturday division with an amazing 5.68 goals per game! I don't think there would be too much worrying to do if betting on over/under 2.5 goals in these divisions!

The veterans of the AIB Superleague, Pimp Juice, are currently the league's top goalscorers with an amazing 5.33 goals per game, and they are closely followed by fellow veterans the Hilltown Chieftans who have 4.85 goals per game. In contrast Team Actimel, need to switch product to get their boost, as they are currently the lowest scorers in the league with just 1.33 goals per game so far!

There are currently just four teams remaining unbeaten across the three divisions; Two Goals one Cup, FC Schustigan, The Hilltown Chieftains, and Schindlers Assist. However will they be able to keep it up over the coming weeks as fixtures begin to pile up?
