The Relative Performance table aims at contrasting some basic team performance indicators such as Points and Points Per Game,
by factoring-in how presumably easy or difficult each team's played matches might have been.
The table lists team ranked by points and shows, for each team:
Below is a view of some of the columns of the Relative Performance table:
Points Per Game (PPG)
The value is calculated based on the number of points for each team, divided by the number of matches played by the team.
Opponents Points Per Game
The Opponents PPG value is calculated based on the combined value of Away Points Per Game of opponents played at home and Home PPG of opponents played away. The details of each opponent PPG value can be displayed by hovering the mouse cursor over any Opponents PPG value on the table.
Relative Performance Index
That value is calculated by multiplying the team's PPG value with the played opponents' PPG value.
You can view an example on the Relative Performance page for the Bundesliga.
The Relative Performance Index value calculation gives as much importance to the team PPG as it does to the Opponents PPG.
The idea is to apply some sort of "weight" to a team's PPG, in order to factor-in the level of opposition the team's points have been picked up against.
In addition to the RPI, another statistics table making use of opponents PPG is the Run-in analysis table, which is also discussed in Evaluating matches difficulty-level.
