Club activities around Europe’s elite leagues has been temporarily halted as players embark on a 2-week international break that will see them represent their respective nations.
Here’s a look at the current leaders across the top 5 leagues so far.
5. French Ligue 1.
Unbeaten in 8 matches, Paris Saint Germain are top of the log in France’s first division with 22 points having won 7 games and drawn just once, with Marseille closely behind with 20 points from same number of fixtures.
With Messi, Neymar and Mbappé all in form, there should be no stopping PSG from defending their league crown.
4. Italian Serie A.
Napoli are the surprise league leaders in the Serie A after 7 matches which has seen them accrue 17 points from a possible 21 without losing a single game in the process.
Although Napoli are level on points with Atalanta, the Partenopei have a superior goal difference which places them first on the table, with Udinese and Lazio completing the top 4 for now.
Defending champions AC Milan are currently in 5th position while Juventus are languishing in 8 place after losing to relegation strugglers, Monza over the last weekend.
3. German Bundesliga.
With 5 wins and 2 draws from 7 games, Union Berlin will rightly be dreaming of stopping Bayern Munich’s dominance in Germany, but they can only achieve that feat if they can stay consistent throughout this season.
Berlin are first with 17 points while Bayern who fell to their first defeat of the season last Saturday are fifth with 12 points, 3 behind Der Klassiker rivals Dortmund who are presently second on the table.
2. Spanish LaLiga.
Real Madrid looks like they are intent on winning the LaLiga title for the second year in a row judging from their performances so far.
After beating Atletico Madrid 2-1 last weekend, the Los Blancos are still the only side with a perfect record across Europe’s top 5 leagues with 6 wins out of 6.
With Barcelona hot on their trails, we will gladly witness the two most successful clubs in Spain battle it out for the title this term.
1. English Premier League.
Arsenal are leading the pack in the EPL with 18 points from seven matches, losing just once against Manchester United.
Man City (2nd) and Tottenham (3rd) are both unbeaten, but with lesser wins than Arsenal, while Brighton are 4th having accumulated an impressive 13 points so far.
It remains to be seen if Arsenal can carry on this consistency they’ve shown over the last few weeks, but they will face another real test when they come up against Tottenham in their next fixture.
