We are inside the second half of the European football season and last season’s champions are in danger of missing out! Mercury Bet’s free football prediction game lets you pick the scores in the biggest matches, and they have given us their review of the season so far.
Will champions retain their titles?
Liverpool are famous for their incredible comebacks – we all remember their win against Barcelona in 2019! However, on this occasion it seems unlikely that they will win the Premier League. Their 68-game unbeaten run at Anfield is over and Manchester City are the favourites to lift the trophy.
Could we be witnessing the end of Barcelona and Real Madrid’s dominance in Spain? Last season saw Los Blancos win La Liga for this first time in three years; this time around, Atletico are top of the table. Lionel Messi and his old friend Luis Suarez are fighting for the Pichichi trophy – who do you think will win?
Meanwhile, this might finally be the year that Juventus’ run as the Serie A champions comes to a close. The Old Lady of Turin have lifted the title in nine consecutive seasons but Milan and Inter finally look equipped to return to the summit of Italian football. At 36, Cristiano Ronaldo is still finding the back of the net but Romelu Lukaku or Zlatan Ibrahimovic could also finish as top scorer.
PSG are chasing a record-equalling tenth league title, yet they are not finding it easy under Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine started his reign with victory in the Trophée des Champions, his first cup as a manager, but it is not going so well in Ligue 1. Lille and Lyon are not giving up the fight and both sides have a good chance of finishing above the Parisians.
The Champions League and Europa League are back!
Bayern will probably retain the Bundesliga title, but can they win the Champions League again too? Their next opponents are Lazio, who have not reached the quarter finals since 2000. Meanwhile, last year’s beaten finalists PSG meet Barcelona in an exciting tie that will see Neymar reunited with his old club. Elsewhere, Liverpool and Chelsea face stern tests against RB Leipzig and Atletico respectively.
Will an English side win the Europa League? Jose Mourinho, who has won the tournament with both Manchester United and Porto, could become a champion again at Tottenham. The Red Devils are also back in the tournament and will expect to reach the latter stages, while Arsenal are hoping that glory here will take them back to the Champions League.
