Major European Leagues – Round Up

With the international break upon us, we look at some major European leagues and how the season has started thus far. We start off with La Liga with Real Madrid sitting pretty at the top with a perfect record. Girona and Barcelona are tied in second with 10 points and need to keep the pressure on Madrid.

Real Madrid summer signing Jude Bellingham has eased into the squad and has played a pivotal role in all three games that Madrid have played. He started the season by scoring the 2nd goal in Madrid’s 2-0 win of Athletic Club and followed up with a double in Madrid’s comeback 3-1 win over UD Almeria. In their 3rd game against RC Celta, Bellingham scored the winner which brings his tally to 4 goals in 3 games. He was recently awarded La Liga Player of Month for his performances.

Meanwhile in the Bundesliga, we see Bayern Munich tied for 1st with Bayer Leverkusen with both teams boasting a perfect record. While it is expected that Munich are top after securing the services of England captain Harry Kane, it is a surprise to some that Leverkusen are matching them stride for stride.

Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso will be relishing going against his former club in Matchday 4 as the table toppers face each other. Leverkusen’s Victor Boniface has been a revelation for the club and has scored 4 goals in 3 games so far. Kane is a goal behind with 3 and this will certainly be the game of the week in the Bundesliga once the international break is over.

In Italy, this season’s Serie A is considered to be the most open title race in a while. Both Milan clubs currently sit at the top of the table with a perfect record from 3 games each. Inter lead on goal difference having scored 8 goals and conceded none.

Inter’s Lautaro Martinez has been on fire since the start of the season bagging a double against Monza, adding a goal versus Cagliari and scoring 2 against Fiorentina in a 4-0 win for Inter. He leads the goal scoring charts with 5 goals and is followed by AC Milan’s Olivier Giroud with 4. Both Milan teams go face to face in the next matchday and whoever prevails from that match will have a strong claim to this season’s Serie A title.

Meanwhile in Ligue 1, Monaco sits top of the table ahead of Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille who are both 2 points behind. Monaco have played 4 games and won 3 and drawn 1. They have scored 13 goals in 4 games with Wassim Ben Yedder and Takumi Minamino contributing 7 goals.

The only blip in their season so far has been a 3-3 draw with bottom placed Nantes. Minamino and Ben Yedder scored in this game but it was a 87th minute equaliser from Myron Boadu that secured the point for Monaco.

Monaco play Lorient in the next game week and will be looking to consolidate their position at the top of the table. They last won the Ligue A title in 2016-17 and will be looking to prevent PSG from winning their 3rd straight title.
