Top 5 European football clubs in 2022
Number five goes Real Madrid in this list of top 5 European clubs. It has been one of the most dominant teams in the history of the Champions League, with four titles in their name since the last decade. However, most of the time they come as the second-best to Barcelona in La Liga. But in this season, Real Madrid under the reign of Carlo Ancelotti is doing well.
They have a six-point lead at the top of the La Liga points table after 25 games. Players including Karim Benzema, Luka Modric, Vinicius Jr., Toni Kroos, David Alba, Casemiro, Eder Militao, and Thibaut Courtois have contributed well to the team.
Paris Saint Germain
At present, Paris Saint-Germain is said as the strongest team of the continent by many experts, with having Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar Jr., in their frontline. Addition to that, players like Gianluigi Donnarumma, Marco Veratti, are also there, which greatly makes them among the top European clubs at present.
However, despite having a strong team, PSG wasn’t that dominant in the current season. Though they are still the Ligue 1 table toppers, with a 13 point lead, and have also beaten Real Madrid by a score of 1-0 in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 ties, at Santiago Bernabeu.
Liverpool is indeed one of the most exciting as well as entertaining European clubs in the continent. The shades of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota, as well as Luis Luis Diaz makes their team one of the most dangerous one. Besides, the Reds have been consistent in their current campaign and haven’t lost a game at their home ground across the Premier League as well as the UCL in this season.
Bayern Munich has been highly dominant in Bundesliga in the current campaign, which has made them one of the best European clubs. They have been victorious in the league 9 times before, and it seems like they are looking forward to making that number to 10. The Bavarians are the table-toppers as well, with a 6 point lead. This is because of the contributions of Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sane, Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka, Alphonso Davies, etc., who also bear the ability to snatch away the match from their opponents.
Last but not the least, the club which reigns at the top of the list of best 5 European clubs is undoubtedly Manchester City. Pep Guardiola’s men are in phenomenal form and beating them currently is a sort of “Mission Impossible” task for the other clubs. At present they are the Premier League table toppers, and they are the strongest contenders to win the Champions League title in the current season.
