In Europe’s top leagues, let’s look forward to these last hot months to understand who will win when time runs out and we have to decide what the final verdict will be. Assuming that the music always plays the same verse (i.e. Ligue 1), the championship remains the minimum goal for Gaultier’s PSG after the umpteenth failure in the Champions League. The seven-point lead over Marseille isn’t much, but it’s not that little either. Let’s get ready for PSG’s fifth win in the last six years, ninth in the last 11 years. Ligue 1 is increasingly a joke and this is shown by PSG changing coaches but the situation is always the same: eliminated from the Champions League.
Does FC Bayern Munich lose in the top European leagues?
And who eliminated PSG from the Champions League this season? Bayern Munich. Another club that has won the championship trophy every year since 2013 and surprised everyone this week: He cheers on Nagelsmann and hires Tuchel. Tuchel’s former club Borussia Dortmund is currently one point ahead of Bayern Munich in the table. After ten years of absolute supremacy, is it perhaps time to pass the baton to someone else? Perhaps. In Spain, the “Clasico” almost determined the fate of La Liga: Barcelona paved the way to the title with an extreme win against Real Madrid, goes to plus twelve to Blancos and will probably win the league again after four years.
Arsenal is dreaming of a coup among the top European leagues
In the Premier League, the neck-and-neck race between pupils (Arteta) and champions (Guardiola) continues, Arsenal are eight plus points ahead of Manchester City (have to make up a game) and are eliminated in the Europa League by Sporting Lisbon, now more than ever he is concentrating on the championship, nothing can distract him now. The Gunners had dreamed of this moment for nineteen years when Wenger’s The Invincibles won the title without ever losing a match. A similar story in Serie A, Spalletti’s Napoli are nineteen points ahead of Sarris Lazio (the gap could be fifteen if Allegris hadn’t penalized Juventus and won them back) and in City – superstition permitting – they are waiting to get over thirty-three years to look forward to.
