"Bayern Munich is in third place despite being world champions. AC Milan is in 33rd place despite leading Serie A for half a year."

Liboro ID - Bayern Munich are world champions after winning the FIFA Club World Cup last week, but are they the best team on the planet?

As mentioned above, the German Bundesliga club have won a lot in the last 12 months.

The question is where does Bayern currently rank among the best teams in world football? According to FiveThirtyEight, not so much. In fact, they are not second on the list.

Liverpool coached by Jurgen Klopp? After losing again at the weekend, can they be ranked as one of the top five teams in the world right now?

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City, on the other hand, cannot stop winning at the moment. Are they the best team in the world? Let's take a look at the current top 20 lists.

20. Villarreal

Villarreal, who are currently sixth in La Liga, are lucky to stay in the top 20 considering their recent poor form. Villarreal lost 2-1 at home to Real Betis on Sunday and went on a 5-game losing streak.

19. Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich are fifth in the Bundesliga and face Young Boys in the Europa League playoffs this weekend.
