BY STEPHANIE MWANGI – After a long vaccation off of European leagues, we are finally going back to kind of football we all live for -league competition.
The signings have been made and as the window closes we are all excited for this new season .
English premier league
The chase between Manchester city and Liverpool went down to wire Last season ,we expect it to be tighter and tougher.
The English teams also dominated Europe and the shine finally came home after all English final in both Europa and the champion league competition.
It was a joy to finally break the domination that Spanish football has had in Europe . can the English teams put up a similar show this time ?
One can place bets on the English teams making it to the semi final if not the finals again , City have had their eyes set on the champion league for the longest time now.
With all of city’s focus on the champion league taking the trophy from their cabinet won’t be easy . We also don’t expect many changes to the top four all I see is Manchester United and Arsenal having to fight it out to see who finishes fifth or sixth.
Spanish La liga
This league has always been a two horse race between Barcelona and Real Madrid for the last decade or so. The two teams have been busy in the transfer window with each snapping up talents that some of us endeared like Eden Hazard And Luka Jovic who went to Madrid and Antoine Griezmann who moved from the Atletico side of Madrid.
There is also the sensational Frankie De jong who moved from Ajax to Barcelona,I don’t see the title changing Hands even though Madrid will y stronger this year after the return of zinedine zidane .
We all know Atletico Madrid will swap places with Real Madrid for second or third place. The race to the top four will be between Sevilla and Valencia.
It’s argued that Barcelona have already picked up the pieces after having their hearts broken the last seasons.
