This season, European football has been packed with incredible stories and tons of great surprises. While we are all aware of the Liverpool-Manchester city battle, it’s time we looked at some of the drama across the content. This article rounds up the champions, relegated teams and those who qualified for the champions and Europa football leagues.
While Napoli has remained among the favorites for Betway bettors, it was unable to maintain its competitive pace from the 2017/2018 season. That saw Juventus win their eighth straight Serie A title. Ronaldo also managed to add 21 goals to his tally, though he only managed the fourth spot on the top scorer list where Fabio Quagliarella took first place with 26 goals.
During the 201/2019 season, there have been a lot of upsets with both Roma and AC Milan missing out spots on the champions league. However, the season’s story goes to Atlanta who booked a spot for their first appearance in the Champions League after finishing third. That’s a slight compensation after losing the Coppa Italia title to Lazio. Nonetheless, Chievo, Empoli, and Frosinone were as lucky as they’ll be heading for relegation.
With Borussia Dortmund posing a strong challenge this season, Bayern Munich was forced to work extra hard for their eighth title. Niko Kovac’s men secured a domestic double after winning 3-0 against RG Leipzig during the DFB-Pokal final. Leipzig managed to finish third, boasting of the best defense in the league.
Under the management of former Dortmund boss Peter Bosz, Bayern Leverkusen finished fourth. However, Eintracht Frankfurt will miss out on Europe despite their remarkable campaign, as Wolfsburg and Monchengladbach booked a spot on the Europa league. Check out this and more news at the Betway blog to know which Bundesliga teams are in the relegation zone.
Barcelona bagged their eighth title within the last 11 years, facing minimal competition from the other two Madrid teams that comfortably qualified for the Champions League. Messi took the European Golden Boot award with 36 goals in the league.
During the season’s second half, Valencia enjoyed an incredible run to emerge fourth place, booking a spot in Europe’s top competition for the second year in a row. The team also beat Barcelona in Copa del Rey, lifting their first silverware over the last decade. However, promoted sides Huesca and Rayo Vallecano will be joining Girona in the relegation.
Finishing 16 points ahead of the second team, PSG continues to dominate the league. Kylan Mbappe continued with his stratospheric rise to finish as the league’s top scorer with 33 goals. However, PSG missed the Coupe de France following their penalty loss to Rennes.
Lille emerged as the first runners up after sacking Coach Marcelo Bielsa last season, while Lyon comfortably took third place. Saint-Etienne came in fourth ahead of Marseille, booking a spot in the Europa League. However, Caen and Guingamp were relegated, with Monaco finishing only two points away from the bottom three.
