State of Euro football, November 2015

It’s been a month since we looked at the standings in the European football leagues. In this post we will look at the top teams of Europe’s biggest football nations: German Bundesliga, Spanish La Liga, French Ligue 1, English Premier League and Italy’s serie A.

Bundesliga

Nothing new here. Bayern Munich are still at the top with 11 victories and 1 draw. Dortmund is 5 points behind. At spot 3 and 4 we find Wolfsburg and Schalke at 21 and 20 points. Unless something totally unexpected happens, Bayern will win the Bundesliga this season as well. However, the fans require that they also advances in the Champions League. They are playing Arsenal on November 3rd.

La Liga

A month ago, both Barcelona and Real Madrid were struggling in the Spanish football league. However, now they are at the top at 24 points each. Maybe it will take an El Clásico to separate the two teams? The next El Clásico is played Saturday, November 21. Celta Vigo is third at 21 points and Atlético Madrid 4th at 20 points.

Ligue 1

Nothing to see here folks. Paris SG is still at the top, as expected. The fans require them to win every title in France, but the question is how they will do in Champions League? They played a goalless tie against Real Madrid last round. Lyon, Angers and St Etienne are all at 22 points, 10 points behind PSG.

Premier League

In Premier League, Chelsea keeps disappointing and the question is not if, but when Jose Mourinho will get fired. In the last match against Liverpool, Chelsea got the early go ahead goal, but in the end of the day they lost by 1-3. At the top of the league we find Manchester City and Arsenal, both at 25 points. Leicester is at third place at 22 points, 1 point before Manchester United. I guess we could some this up so far by stating that Chelsea and Leicester is the biggest surprises so far.

Serie A

This is perhaps the most even league among the big five. Fiorentina and Inter are at the top with 24 points each. Roma is chasing behind at 23 points and Napoli at 22 points. Last season’s champions Juventus are struggling at 10th place.

We will be back in December with another report from the best football leagues of Europe. However, before then we will focus on Champions League and the Euro 2016 play off qualifiers.
