Liverpool crowned Champions League after beating Tottenham, Chelsea still holding the Europa League before Arsenal's frustrations.
2018/19 season saw the great work of the Premiership in the European Cup arena
This year, English football is no longer so strong. In the Champions League, Liverpool's defending champion Atletico turn into the former King, Chelsea and Tottenham were "shedding". Man City hold only flag Premiership in the European arena. In front "second class" Europa League, Premier League and Manchester United only to hope, after Wolves were defeated Sevilla in the quarterfinals a regrettable way.
But it is noteworthy that both these teams are considered candidates No. 1 in the league that I attended. According to William Hill, to the time of day 12/8, Man City are candidates likely to Champions League the highest proportion (9/4 - set 4 9). Followed by Bayern (3/1), PSG (11/2), Barcelona (7/1), Atletico (8/1), Atalanta (9/1), Leipzig (18/1) and Lyon (33/1 ).
William Hill assess candidates MU is also No. 1 in the Europa League, despite rival's upcoming "Reds" in the semifinal is Sevilla. Accordingly, the ratio of the Europa League champions after the quarter-finals of the MU is 17/10, followed by Inter (7/4), Sevilla (11/4) and Shakhtar (8/1).
United's closest title is also the Europa League, as they were crowned in 2017 with Jose Mourinho's former coach. Therefore, teachers Solskjaer is determined to conquer the title of second division club level in Europe, to end the 2019/20 season with one title after 2 consecutive season empty-handed.
Man City will be the century thirst?
For nearly a decade, Manchester City have poured billions of pounds into the transfer for the purpose of "dragon". Achievements of the "Green Man" has partly paid off after trying tirelessly with four Premier League championship. Blue half of Manchester is the UK team took home the Premier League most in 10 years.
Perfect scenario for the Premier League, it is Man City Champions League Europa League still warm hat
In the Champions League Round 1/8, Man City beat Real Madrid excellence in both 2-legged. Pep Guardiola's men are showing the skill and experience after previous failed attempts. Clearly, defeating Real - the most tradition-rich team tournament and was named the property "DNA Champions League" shows that Man City has great progress.
After the eighth round, with Real and Juventus eliminated, Man City were relieved two strong candidate for the championship this season. With the recent victory, teachers Guardiola has appeared in the quarter-finals and their opponents are a team weaker, Lyon. Last season, former King Premiership league table with each share representing France. Results after the first 2 times for leaning "The Citizens" with 1 win, 1 draw.
8 names through to the quarter finals of the Champions League, though still the big guns like Barcelona, Bayern Munich, but the strange thing is that in all 8 coaches are leading the teams in this round, only the coach Pep Guardiola each array tournament champion. 7 names left, coach Diego Simeone was also a finalist 2 times but are losers.
Overall, Manchester City and Manchester United are appreciated in European competition this year, and they promised to maintain Premiership flag on the peak the old continent. Unfortunately only one thing, if Liverpool are not eliminated from the Champions League because of the mistakes of the keeper Adrian; or Wolves do not miss the chance to face Sevilla in the Europa League quarter-final, definitely the strength of the Premiership will be even more remarkable.
