The Qatar World Cup it’s here. The great competition that takes place every four years will start next Sunday, November 20 with Qatar-Ecuador. The great event, which generates great enthusiasm for fans of the beautiful game, can be a monumental headache for teams that have great aspirations in their respective leagues, especially this year.
The competition completely cuts off the course of domestic tournamentsparalyzing the dynamics of teams and players, and the option of being seriously injured in a scenario that no footballer wants to lose terrifies any coach.
How do the leaders of the big leagues get to the World Cup? How many of your players can get injured in Qatar? With practically all the official lists already submitted, we go over it all in this article.
LaLiga Santander: Xavi Hernández’s Barça
The end of the first stage of the League for the Barça team has been a complete madness. After the defeat in the Clásico, and with a much more complicated calendar than the real Madridhis greatest pursuer, the box Xavi I was very touched. Nothing is further from reality, now they will keep the leadership of LaLiga Santander until at least after the World Cup.
with the epic comeback against Osasuna in El Sadar, the azulgrana have added 37 out of 42 possible pointswith a distance of three units from Ancelotti’s team.
The break for the big date of qatar It is not too convenient for a Barça that was getting all the games ahead, even more so, taking into account the bad timing that crossed the real Madridachieving just one victory in the last three league games (draw with Girona, defeat against Rayo and victory against Cádiz).
Another concern that Xavi may have are the injuries. It will be a matter of chance that no footballer falls during the month of hiatus.
Premier League: Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal
One of the sensations of the season. The ‘gunners’ have won the battle in the first round of the season against Manchester City by Pep Guardiola. Arsenal is showing the importance of trusting a long term project. When Arteta came to the Emirates bench in December 2019, Arsenal’s game was not good and the results even worse. However, after trusting the Spanish coach, now they are the first in the Premier League (37 points in 14 games).
The principal problem of the London team is the staff turnover. The bench he has cannot be compared to that of his closest pursuer, Manchester City. 9 Arsenal footballers far exceed 1,000 minutes in the Premier League (Raamsdale, Gabriel, Saliba, Gabriel Jesus, Martinelli, Saka, Xhaka, White and Odegaard) and Thomas has played pretty much everything when he has been available.
The elimination of the ‘gunners’ in the EFL Cup against Brighton It can even be good news for Arteta, that he will be able to focus his work on the Premier and the Europa League and will have a smaller load of matches.
Serie A: Luciano Spalletti’s Napoli
Without a doubt, Napoli is the europe fashion team. Outstanding leaders in Series A (41 points in 15 games) and first in the Champions League group (ahead of Liverpool and Ajax), the Neapolitan team has attracted the attention of the whole world.
Spalletti has made a united and dedicated group which responds wonderfully. All footballers are plugged in and they feel important, even those who play less. Precisely one of the keys of the team lies in the bottom of the wardrobe, essential to give rest to the starters and be able to maintain the level of intensity they show in each duel.
All members of the squad they play by and for the team and that translates into wonderful results. It will be necessary to see if the World Cup does not break such a positive dynamic like the one in Naples.
Bundesliga: Julian Nagelsmann’s Bayern Munich
The surprise of the course was carried out by the Union of Berlin, but as it was already intuited, not seeing Bayern in the first position of the Bundesliga was a simple mirage. those of Naglesmann They add 34 points and their closest rival is Freiburg (30 points) and, unfortunately, it seems that one more year the doubt will be when they will mathematically certify the league.
Clear dominators in their domestic championship, the Munich team aims for the Champions League. The Germans, after completing a perfect group stage (six out of six victories) and condemn Barça to the Europa League, they will hope not to lose any key player during the World Cup in Qatar.
Ligue 1: Christophe Galtier’s Paris Saint-Germain
It surprises no one that he Paris Saint Germain be a leader in Ligue 1. commanded by Messi, Neymar Y Mbappe, only the Lens keeps their pulse a little. Lorient surprised at the start of the course, even reaching the top of the table, but as expected, they have already fallen to fifth position.
13 wins and 2 draws endorse the best team in France by far. However, if the world worries to Galtier It will not be for the domestic tournament, in which they have already shown that with 45 minutes they can leave the games more than resolved. What generates panic is that the World Cup compromises the Champions Leaguethe long-awaited tournament for Al-Khelaifi that they had so close in 2020. To banish Ancelotti’s Real Madrid in the round of 16 they will need all their troops at the best possible level.
