This season of European soccer should be full of upsets and many interesting games among their respective domestic leagues. Here is a list of the top five leagues to invest your time in for the 2021/2022 season.
1. Premier League
Is there ever a dull moment in the Premier League? The league continues year after year to provide the sports world with remarkable moments that live on for multiple generations. The Premier League this year is full of star-studded talent, and many high caliber teams to look out for. Some new talent includes the acquisitions of top-tier players such as Ronaldo, Sancho, Varane, Lukaku, and Saul. Some teams that make the Premier League wonderful to watch include, Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Tottenham. This is surely going to be a wonderful experience for all that watch.
2. Serie A
Juventus’ nine year consecutive title run came to an abrupt end last year by Inter Milan. Serie A is now reaching a new point in its campaign that will be amazing to watch. This year is very unpredictable on who will finish in the top 4. Many teams in Serie A are going through many projects to alter their teams. For example, teams like Lazio, Roma, Napoli, and Inter Milan are trying to maintain success in the league and hope for a bright future. One of the biggest steps that these teams took was hiring new head coaches/managers. Serie A is a great place to watch some of the best managers in the world such as Gasperini, Spalletti, Mourinho, and Allegri.
3. La Liga
With the departure of Lionel Messi, La Liga viewership will definitely take a big hit. However, it does not take away that the league is still one of the best to watch in the world. Teams such as Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid, Valencia, Sevilla and Villarreal, all bring big expectations to the league. Like Italy, some of the biggest teams in Spain are going through reconstruction as they aim for a successful future. Teams especially like Barcelona and Real Madrid, have lost star players due to age and salary issues. Regardless, La Liga has the potential to create many matches this season that you do not want to miss.
Bayern Munich is on a current nine-year consecutive title achievement and hope to make it ten this season. However, teams like Dortmund, Leipzig, Leverkusen, and Wolfsburg, look to end the streak. Bundesliga is also full of young talent that could potentially be the future stars of the game. Examples such as Erling Haaland, Jude Bellingham, Maxence Lacroix, Jamal Musiala, and Gio Reyna are certainly worth watching out for. Teams with this kind of talent are ready to produce a season of soccer that could be watched upon millions in Germany and millions more around the world.
5. Ligue 1
Ligue 1 has made a massive breakthrough this season with the new players that will be joining the league. Especially among the signings that PSG has made which include Lionel Messi, Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Achraf Hakimi, and many more. It is also worth mentioning that other players such as Jerome Boateng, Xherdan Shaqiri, and Emerson have also joined Lyon this season making Ligue 1 filled with interesting transfers outside of PSG. Ligue 1 is worth a watch this season given the fact that Lille pulled off an amazing title run during the 2020/21 season that stunned the world as Paris was the favorite to win it all last season.
This season Paris is the favorites once again to win Ligue 1, but there are many other teams that look to take advantage of a potential upset similar to what happened last season. Teams such as Marseille, Lens, Nice, and Lyon all look to make a remarkable story of defeating the Parisian giants one again.
