With only seven defeats since the beginning of the season, where would OM be if they played in one of the four big European leagues (Germany, Spain, Italy and England)?

Alright, OM have only eight victories since the beginning of the championship season. Alright, the team set their record of tie-games in one season (15). But after all, OM have few losses and we can't take it away from them. With seven defeats since the start of the 2015-16 season, of which two were against PSG, OM is the third team in Ligue 1, tied with Rennes, having the less losses, behind Paris (1 defeat) and Monaco (4). This small number puts them in the 24th position regarding the five big European leagues.
Concerning these 24 teams, only 13 of them have 7 or less losses including teams like: FC Barcelona, Juventus, Bayern Munich and even Leicester... So the other eleven teams have as many defeats as OM. Arsenal in England, Fiorentina in Italy, Sevilla in Spain aren't more tilted than OM. But let's stop for a moment.
The difference between these team and Olympique de Marseille can be seen in the classification. Despite only 7 defeats, OM are in the underbelly of the league, the 10th place. This is not the case in Europe.
With this amount of defeats, OM would be maximum 7th in one of the five big European leagues. At best, they would be in the third place of the classification, like in the case of Hertha Berlin in Germany. However, with all these tie-games, OM are, among the 11 teams with 7 losses, the one who have the lowest amount of points.
Whatever might be said about this, it is hard to get the three points against Marseille. In the championship, only seven teams did it until this moment of the season, and it is eventually not many.
