The Relative Form table is used to evaluate a team's recent performance relative to the team's overall performance in the season.
The table lists team ranked by points and shows, for each team:
Below is a view of some of the first columns of the Relative Form table.
Points Per Game (PPG) last 8 matches
That value is calculated based on the number of points picked up in the last 8 matches by each team, divided by 8 or, if the team has played less than 8 matches, by the number of matches played. Obviously that table is not relevant for teams that have not yet played more than 8 matches.
Points Per Game (PPG) all matches
That value is calculated based on the number of points for each team, divided by the number of matches played by the team.
PPG last 8 matches - PPG all matches
Difference between the two following values: PPG last 8 matches, PPG all matches
The Relative Form table does not use a typical Form table ranking method, as the teams are not ranked according to points picked up in their last few matches only. However it does include a Form-related metric (the Points Per Game in the last 8 matches), that is evaluated against the Points Per Game in all matches.
You can view an example on the Bundesliga Relative Form page.
A high Relative Form value might not necessarily indicate that the team is on a very successful run and that it would be highly ranked in the Form tables.
The relative form value is only a calculation of how high or how low a team's last 8 matches Points Per Game value is compared to their overall PPG considering the whole season so far.
