Three of the five top European leagues may also be the place where two teams in a city enter the top two at the end of the season. In addition to Madrid, Manchester and Milan also have an excellent football history, and the current confrontation between the six teams from the three cities will make us passionate for the rest of the spring.
In the football world, urban confrontation has always played a pivotal role. This applies not only to Europe, but also to the rest of the world. Just consider the Boca River in Buenos Aires, Al-Ahly-Zamals in Cairo, Corinthian Palmeiras in São Paulo or Botafogo-Flamengo in Rio. These mutual struggles, in addition to providing themes for everyone, also motivate the team to become better than other teams that are forced to share in the solution.
The same is true in Europe: by winning a derby, the fans claim that the losing season is saved. “In any case, we can only defeat urban opponents” As the saying goes. In this regard, the French are seen as separate passengers because the Ligue 1 team is evenly distributed in space on the map: not the only one of the five top leagues with cities that fans follow.
If we are looking for a city shared by multiple clubs in Europe, then-no need to claim to be exhaustive-Lisbon (Benfica Sports), Glasgow (Celtics), Belgrade (Red Star Guerrilla)Vienna (Austria-Fast), Prague (Slavia Sparta) Zagreb (Dinamo Locomotive) It can also be thought of. Budapest deserves special mention, because considering the first and second class associations, London, the capital of Hungary, is the most fragmented after London.
Currently, there are six London clubs in the Premier League that can earn points more or less. In the Arsenal-Tottenham matchup, the former has been better for a long time, but the recent and current paint is encouraging for Tottenham. Fulham and Chelsea are two adjacent areas along the Thames-interestingly, both clubs have stadiums in Fulham. Nor should it stop Thomas Tuchel’s team from being more productive than his opponents playing football on the river bank. Since these two bands are almost always on completely different levels, the duel is more interesting for us because they are very close geographically.
This is not the case in Liverpool. When the defending champion enters Goodison Park, his home in Everton, he only needs to walk through one park. The scissors between these two teams have opened up a lot in the past decade, but at the end of February, they broke the bad series: for the first time since October 2010, they beat their opponents in 20 league games and 3 football games. It was the first time since September 27, 1999 on Anfield Road (Anfield Road).
Under Sir Ferguson’s rule, after the legendary manager retired, the development of Manchester United, which was dominated by Manchester United, was greatly reversed. Thanks to the support of Arab investors, New York City rose to a new level in the 2010s and is now besieging the BL title. This season, Manchester United shouted again, so Manchester’s two clubs are currently in the top two in the Premier League.
So far, in Italy, the league season has also involved the revival of individual cities. Due to the closure of the coronavirus last year, AC Milan has made quite surreal progress. In March last year, there was news that Stefano Pioli was leaving office and tried to persuade Ralf Ragnick, the most important figure in the Red Bull football program, to open a new era for red and black people. .
In the end, under the leadership of veteran Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the ending of last season was so successful that Pioli had a chance to move on. The Italian expert can tolerate this. They also drove Serie A for a long time, but it looks like they can’t stand the Interrel led by Antonio Conte. In any case, they may get second place, which is definitely a good result for them, because they have not been able to stand on the podium of the league since 2013.
In Turin, Juventus has better opportunities and results than Turin Football Club. Since about the 1940s, Juventus has won five gold medals in the Toro series. AS Roma-Lazio used to be one of the best moods in a duel, and the national anthems of the two teams were even established before the start. Perhaps the truest thing about Genoa-Sampdoria is that we wrote at the beginning that defeating urban competitors can save the usual seasons of mismanagement.
