The average attendances of European clubs this season sees two countries dominate.

The top 30 best supported clubs include 11 German sides and eight from England.

The other 11 spots are divided between:  Spain (3), Holland (2), France (1), Portugal (2), Scotland (2) and Italy (1).

Borussia Dortmund are at the very top with a cracking home average of 79,653 for home league matches, with Barcelona in second (77,944).

However, with 51,106, Newcastle United are easily the best supported second tier club in any country.

Only 14 clubs in the whole of Europe attracted more supporters per game, all the more noteworthy due to Newcastle playing far more home matches (23) in the English second tier, than the likes of Germany (17) and Spain (19).
