Champions of Europe's top 5 leagues

Who will be Champions of Europe’s top 5 leagues this season?

With less than 10 games left to play in nearly all of Europe’s top 5 leagues, it’s time to pull out the books and start making those stakes on who finishes the top leagues in the first position. In this piece, I’ll do a quick run through of which clubs are most likely to end the season as Champions in their respective leagues.

Before I go any further, allow me a moment to clarify which football leagues in Europe are classified as Europe’s best five.

The following European countries: Germany, France, Spain, Italy, and England are considered to be best footballing nations in Europe. So it’s only natural that the domestic leagues in these countries are considered the best in Europe. Hence, the German Bundesliga, the French Ligue 1, the Spanish La Liga, the Italian Serie A and the English Premier League are seen as the best football leagues in Europe. The money accrued by these leagues run into staggering billions of dollars yearly.

As is usually the case, most of these top leagues begin around August/September and wrap up in May/June with a new champion already declared and three lowest performing teams automatically relegated to the second division (except for the Bundesliga where only the last two teams get relegated). Below are the most likely champions of Europe's top 5 leagues this year.

German Bundesliga – Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich has had a strong hold of the Bundesliga since anyone can remember. The Bavarians have 25 Bundesliga titles in their kitty only seconded by Borussia Monchengladbach and Borussia Dortmund who have just 5 Bundesliga titles each. Bayern Munich tightening grip on the Bundesliga is down to their massive financial muscle which helps them attract some of the best players and managers to the club.

This season, Bayern Munich is most likely to make it 26 Bundesliga titles in the bag with yet another German title – the Bavarians are 13 points clear of second placed RB Leipzig. Bayern Munich’s 13 points lead in the Bundesliga with 9 matches left to play is one that has never been usurped or lost since the beginning of the 54-year-old Bundesliga. So it’s safe to assume that the Bundesliga is done and dusted with the Deutsche Meisterschale (Bundesliga trophy) remaining in Bavaria for yet another season.

French Ligue 1 – Monaco

In the French Ligue 1, it will be a more keenly contested affair for who becomes the champions in the year under review. At the moment, it’s more like a three horse race for who gets the crown – with Nice and Paris Saint-Germain all within touching distance of first placed Monaco. Monaco is on course for her first Ligue 1 title since 2000 and I see them seeing out this race as winners. The men from the Principality will be looking over their shoulders as four-time consecutive winners, Paris Saint-Germain is only 3 points away.

Monaco is having a breathtaking season, one in which they top the domestic league and have made their way to the Champions League quarter-finals. With the likes of Kylian Mbappé Lottin and Radamel Falcao in the attack, Monaco has a staggering goal difference of 61goals, 22 more than PSG – they score 2.9 goals per game meaning they are very deadly in attack. This is Monaco’s title to lose.

Spanish La Liga – Real Madrid

The Spanish La Liga has been dominated by both Barcelona and Real Madrid with both teams forming a sickening duopoly that has seen them win between themselves, nearly 60 La Liga titles since the league unrivaled in 1929. This year is no different as one of the two – Real Madrid is on course for yet another La Liga title, her first since 2012.

Real Madrid has a 2-point lead at the top despite having played one game less than Barcelona who is in second. With 8/9 games left to play, there’s still plenty to play for, but Madrid is most likely to win it.

Italian Serie A – Juventus

Since sorting out the match-fixing scandal that smeared the team’s image and got them relegated from the Serie A in 2006, the Old Lady of Turin has bounced back with some finesse. Juventus' dominance in the Serie A is unrivalled – they’ve won the past 5 Serie A titles making it 32 titles in the bag (the most in Serie A history).

Juve is almost certain to win another Serie A title, having gone 8 points clear of second-placed Roma with 9 games to go. Can anyone stop Juventus from winning it?

English Premier League – Chelsea

The English Premier League is Chelsea’s to lose! The Blues have opened up a massive 10 points gap at the top of one of the most prestigious leagues in Europe. If Chelsea wins it this year, it will be their 6th league title and her second in three years.

The Chelsea team, sponsored by the billions of Roman Abramovich have been in great form this season after a woeful title defence last season that saw them finish 10th. It is most likely that Chelsea will replace Leicester City as English Champions this May.
