I am now analysing the league tables of Europe's top 5 leagues since 3 points for a win was used. After drawing box plots of some of them, I found these sides as outliers:
The following teams performed exceptionally well:
Barcelona (2018/19)
Barcelona (2017/18)
PSG (2017/18)
Bayern (2017/18)
Monaco (2016/17)
Bayern and RB Leipzig (2016/17)
PSG (2015/16)
Juventus (2013/14)
Bayern (2012/13)
Barcelona (2012/13)
Barcelona and Real Madrid (2011/12)
Inter (2006/07)
Liverpool (2019/20, as of now)
The following teams performed exceptionally badly:
Troyes (2015/16)
Any more?

Here are some more outliers:
These performed exceptionally well:
Barcelona and Real Madrid (2010/11)
Barcelona and Real Madrid (2009/10)
Dortmund (2011/12)
VFB Stuttgart and Schalke 04 (2006/07)
Barcelona (2004/05)
Valencia (2003/04)
Bayern and Bayer Leverkusen (1999/00)
These performed exceptionally badly:
Murcia (2003/04)
MSV Duisburg (1999/00)
I found out that most of the outliers won the title.

Out of curiosity may I ask why you’re analysing outliers in the top 5 leagues ?
What use is it to you ?
And how do you know a team is an outlier ? Can’t you just compare their points with their predicted points by a spread betting firm ?
And how are you accounting for luck in games if at all ?
And where is Leicester 2016 ?

I am using the Maths S1 box plots, while 1.5*IQR above Q3 and 1.5*IQR below Q1 are outliers.
