Almost a year after the pandemic, the Corona virus continues to cast a shadow over the major European leagues, especially in England, Italy and Spain.
Many changes have taken place in the European leagues in England, Spain and Italy at the level of competition in each league as well as the brilliant players, amid a noticeable change from previous seasons, and although the French and German leagues do not carry any surprises, but the other 3 leagues that witness a great follow-up from the Arab fans have witnessed these changes.
in a Premier League, Tottenham leads the adventure of the title competition after reaching point No. 20 after 9 rounds of the competition, with his Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho, who achieved the English Premier League on 3 previous occasions.
It is true that Tottenham share the lead with Liverpool, but they did not lead the league after the quarter-season passed, five seasons ago, when they were competing for the title with Leicester City, who won the title in the end.
Tottenham snatched the lead from Everton, who was in first place in the general standings until the fifth round, and is one of the teams that made an unexpected start this season under the leadership of its veteran Italian coach Carl Ancelotti.
In terms of the players’ brilliance, Everton striker Dominic Calvert Lewin shined after he reached the top of the Premier League scorer with 10 goals, after 9 rounds, beating Heung Min Son, who scored 9 goals, Muhammad Salah and Jimmy Fardi 8 goals.
The new face of Leeds United’s Patrick Bamford has imposed himself by force in the Premier League after scoring 7 goals.
In the Spanish league, Real Sociedad are still in the lead with 23 points after 10 rounds of the League, ahead of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.
Although the Spanish League is always confined to the competition between Real and Barca, the modest level of the two teams this season may open the way to an unexpected champion in “La Liga”.
With Sociedad’s brilliance, his player Memel Uyarzabal snatched the spotlight at the top of the scorers’ standings after scoring 6 goals.
Barcelona and Real Madrid players missed the list of the top 5 scorers in the league, after Barcelona’s Ansu Fati and Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema stopped at 4 goals.
As for the Italian league, it may witness a strange but pleasant surprise for many football fans, after the AC Milan team returned to compete for the league title, after Juventus dominated the title in the last 9 years.
Milan, who has seven Champions League titles, tops the overall standings for Calcio with 20 points from 8 matches, while defending champions Juventus fell to fourth place with 16 points.
The biggest surprise in Milan’s return to competition is the remarkable level that Swedish team player Zlatan Ibrahimovic offers at the age of 39.
Ibra is the top scorer with 10 goals, beating Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo with 8 goals.
