European Football Leagues:
At this stage of the year, we suppose to inform you guys, the battle for championship title is on among the European Football leagues. But sorry, currently, there is no battle for the title is going on except Serie A. One particular horse is leading all the way to the finishing line of the other leagues.
No change for the toppers in this week. Let’s have a quick look at this week’s updates.
Man city has done their job already. Just a few formalities are left for the Citizens. They just have to beat their city rival Man U next week for the official announcement of the title. Too many records are beckoning Pep Guardiola’s disciples. The Premier League record of highest points, most scored goals, goal difference and early confirmation of the league title before ending, all are pretty much on for them.
Meanwhile, the most important news of this uneventful week is Chelsea’s first defeat against Spurs at home after 1990. London Blues confirmed that they are missing out the Champions League for the second time in last three years.
Here, Liverpool’s goal machine Mohammad Salah is not only topping the scorer sheet of Premier League but also he is a strong claimant for the European Golden Shoe with his 29 goals.
Barcelona’s late-night draw against Sevilla is the only big news of this week for La Liga. Messi was not in the starting line up due to his fitness issue. But after a two nill lagging scorecard, Messi was introduced to his favorite opponent of La Liga (scored 24 goals against Sevilla in La Liga) in the 67th minute. Suarez made the scoresheet 2-1 in the 88th minute and Messi scored the equalizer in the very next minute after that. Messi is also on the top of the individual highest scorer.
Atletico won against Departivo and Madrid defeat Las Palmas quite easily without CR7. So the top chart remains the same.
Napoli falls a little bit behind in this year’s battle for the title. They have drawn against Sassuolo last night. Meanwhile, league topper Juventus finished on a high against AC Milan. So, the 3 points difference becomes 4 points in this week. Another very significant 8 matches are left to go for both teams.
But the run for Serie A golden shoe is still on between Ciro Immobile and Mauro Icardi. Both of them scored 2 goals for their team I this week and Immobile stays at the top with his 26 goals and Icardi at second with 24.
Bayern Munich flouted Borussia Dortmund in their last match by 6-1. Although Bayern was flying on a high, spectators were expecting some resistance from Dortmund. But that never happened in the whole 90 minutes of the game. Now Bayern is staying on the verge of the official announcement of the league title.
Robert Lewandowski is on the top with his 29 goals, including this week’s hat-trick against Dortmund at Allianz Arena.
