Football Ramblings 9/17

BPL-

1.Right now the 2 best teams are the Manchester teams, United has dominated play so far, Romelu Lukaku has been their main weapon, plus most wins have been by a few goals, the offense is clicking this season and their schedule does not get hard until October 14th when they play at Liverpool 730am (Southampton at St.Marys and then home for Crystal Palace then a week off then at Liverpool). While Manchester City has also played well and their schedule is also easier until November 5th when they host Arsenal, their leader has been Sergio Aguero as expected.

2.Do not count out Chelsea as they are a point behind along with Newcastle who has 9 pts and been a surprise.

La Liga-

1.Barcelona has been a surprise with no Neymar who is with PSG , I will say that La Liga is weaker than the BPL so its not a huge surprise. Lionel Messi has 5 goals and now they have Luis Suarez back which helps them. Sevilla has gotten off to a star they needed to be in the race, Real Madrid is starting to be as good as expected with the talent they have of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.

Bundesliga-

1.This is what I thought would happen, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are the top teams in a non shock. Borussia is lead by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Munich is lead by Robert Lewandowski with 5 goals.

Serie A-

1.Juventus once again is the top team in the league with 10 pts and the surprise is Napoli is 1st with 13 points, Paulo Dybala has 8 goals for Juventus to lead them while Dried Mertens has 5 goals for Napoli.
