The six teams in Europe that have achieved full victories

The six teams in Europe that have achieved full victories

First international break of the season after only four days of the League, three in the cases of the Bundesliga and Serie A, and there are now only six teams that have won all their matches so far in Europe’s five major competitions.

A start to the season in which not even clubs like Barça, PSG, Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund or Naples have managed to achieve a full meeting. Many of the greats have already failed, and there are only six teams that count their games by victories.

Bayer Leverkusen
Xabi Alonso’s team is being one of the sensations of the season. There were many expectations with the coach from San Sebastián and the interesting signings that had been brought to him, but reality has surpassed the predictions. Three games and three victories that have the team as co-leader along with Bayern Munich.

In addition to the immaculate score, the football that Leverkusen are playing is being one of the most notable in Europe. Quick transitions, vertical and attractive play with nine goals for and only three against. Their challenge will be to get into the Champions League, although the underlying dream will be to try to get closer to the fight for the Bundesliga.

Bayern Munich
After a year with many doubts and conquering the league in extremis on the last day, the Bavarians have been perfectly reinforced with a spectacular market. Harry Kane has been the definitive piece to form a favorite squad, as always, for the Bundesliga and this year also a candidate to win the Champions League. This season, after two easy games, they had to sweat at the weekend to come back against Borussia Mönchengladbach. He finally managed to do it, to make the full score and go to the break with a three out of three.

Inter de Milan
The current European runner-up has started the season at maximum speed. Now without Lukaku, Lautaro has put the team on his back even more and has made a surprising start towards goal. Nine points out of a possible nine, tied with Milan. Upon returning from the break, one of the two (or both) will end that unbeaten record, as they face each other in a derby that looks tremendous.

Almost even better than in attack, they have started in defense with zero goals against. A start that makes one think of Inter as the favorite to snatch the Scudetto from a weakened Naples.

Inter’s great rival. As we have mentioned, he is also undefeated in these first games. Perhaps without as much spectacularity in his games as his neighbor’s, but with total effectiveness. Also, eight goals for and two against with an important victory against Roma included this week make us think of Milan as Inter’s great rival this year for the leadership. An impressive duel at the top of the classification and that will have the highlight on September 16 with that confrontation between the two. Clinging to Giroud, who already has four goals and an assist, Pioli’s men will fight to win a new league.

Manchester City
Devastating. It is the word that defines the start of the season for Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. Two wins (0-3 against Burnley and 5-1 against Fulham) and two games suffered against Sheffield and Newcastle. The latter, a very important victory against a Champions League rival and which speaks of the capacity for resistance that this Manchester City team has acquired. A true hammer that will force anyone who wants to fight for the Premier to reach and even exceed 90 points.

Added to a spectacular choral start is the voracity of Erling Haaland, who has not slowed down compared to last season. Six goals in four games for the Norwegian, who is already setting the same scoring pace that led him to reach all records last season.

Real MadridTwelve points for Ancelotti’s team in these first four games. A start that takes on even more value considering that the first three games have been away from home. It may not have been the happiest or most scoring game, but Bellingham’s good defensive performance and form have been enough for them to go into the break as the sole leader.

Vinicius’ injury, who could be out until October, could complicate his return to the competition in which he will face teams like Real Sociedad or Atlético de Madrid, in addition to facing the return of the Champions League. Clinging to the English star and the forcefulness of the midfield, the Madridistas hope to continue with the good dynamic when this selection window ends.
