Best home & away records in Europe’s top five leagues

The 2023/24 campaign in Europe’s top leagues has been electrifying, with several clubs striving to take the driver’s seat in their respective title races. 

Every matchday has been a rollercoaster, each point fiercely contested, and the title races remain breathlessly open.

Some teams have made their home advantage count, embracing the roaring passion of their fans and transforming their stadiums into a fortress.

Others have found more joy on the road, taking the fight to their opponents. They have revelled in the freedom of the road and turned themselves into marauding forces.

We analyse the sides with the best home and away records as we head to the midway point of the campaign.

Best home record in Europe’s top five leagues

Aston Villa

Unai Emery’s Aston Villa have turned Villa Park into a burning cauldron into which giants Manchester City and Arsenal have sunk.

The Villains have won all eight games at home and look untouchable with the kind of confidence they have been riding on since the arrival of the Spanish manager.

Villa have scored 25 goals at home this season, conceding only five times, dominating their opponents like in the 6-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion and the 4-1 thrashing of West Ham United.


Their unbreachable home form is one of the reasons why they have become one of the outside contenders for the Premier League title. 

Bayer Leverkusen 

Bayer Leverkusen have dominated the headlines in the Bundesliga, where they have made an unbeaten start to the season. 

Their record is even more dominant at the BayArena. They have won seven games, while their only draw was against Borussia Dortmund. 

Xabi Alonso’s side have married his Spanish possession style with an Italian three-at-the-back defence that employs marauding full-backs, and they look spectacular.

Leverkusen have never won the Bundesliga title, but many are backing or hoping they can dethrone Die Rekordmeister this term.

Atletico Madrid 

Atletico Madrid have gone about their business quietly, accruing a perfect record on home soil.

Los Colchoneros have won every game they have played at the Civitas Metropolitano this term, scoring 19 goals and only conceding eight.

Diego Simeone has his team in the top four, playing a more attacking brand of football than his reputation suggests, but it has reaped rewards.

They have a game in hand and could leapfrog Barcelona in third place as they look to join the title race that Real Madrid and Girona are leading.

Best away record in Europe’s top five leagues

Girona 

Girona have been one of the most exciting teams in European football this term as they threaten to do a 2015/16 Leicester City.

The Albirrojo’s finished last season in tenth, following promotion from the second division the season before.

They are top of the La Liga standings thanks to their immaculate away record that has seen them win seven and draw one away from home. No one has scored more goals than Girona on the road.

Their most impressive result came days ago as they claimed a 4-2 win over reigning champions Barcelona.

They have shown no signs of letting up, despite Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico breathing down their necks.

Inter Milan

Inter Milan have roared to the top of Serie A, obliterating opponents standing in their way.

Inter have an unblemished record on the road this term, winning seven and drawing one against Juventus. 

They have defeated Napoli and Lazio, with their best result coming against Salernitana on September 30 as they thrashed them 4-0.

Simone Inzaghi’s side have continued their form from last season and look unstoppable as they charge for their 20th Scudetto.

Tottenham Hotspur

After their struggles last season, Tottenham Hotspur have become a force under new manager Ange Postecoglou.

Spurs topped the league standings at one point, but injuries depleted their squad and powers.

However, they still have the best away record in the English top flight this term. They have won five games on the road, drawing three and losing once.

Tottenham have accrued two points per game playing away from their stadium, bagging a league-high 20 goals.

After a blip in form, they have won two on the spin to stay within touching distance of the top four, where they hope to finish at the end of the season.
