Not only Messi and Mbappe: 5 reasons why we missed the leagues in Europe - voila! sport


The new champion and the king of the goals of the World Cup returns to dance on the same grass together with Neymar. The fight for the championship in Spain, the return of Napoli and more: a reminder of how much fun it was even before Qatar

The World Cup that ended in Qatar was perhaps the most talked about World Cup ever that ended with an unforgettable final between Argentina and France.

Those who missed seeing Leo Messi and Kylian Mbappe running on the same field will not see it tonight because Messi is not in the Paris squad for the match against Strasbourg.

The transition from the euphoria of the World Cup to the "bread and butter" that is the major leagues can be difficult.

But we decided to make it easier for you and give you five good reasons why you should also watch European football in the coming months.

1. The union between Mbappe, Messi and Neymar

If the union between the three tenors of Paris Saint-Germain was fascinating before the World Cup, now it is much more fascinating.

Quite a bit of bad blood flowed between the Argentina players and Kylian Mbappe after the great World Cup final where, as I remember, Kylian scored a hat trick, but Argentina won the penalty shootout.

Messi has not yet returned and will not be in the squad against Strasbourg, but Mbappe and Neymar are expected to start after a World Cup that ended in a frustrating way for them and it will be fascinating to see the cooperation between the French and the Brazilian and especially between the French and the Argentine, who is expected to be in the squad for the next game.

2. The championship fight between Barcelona and Real Madrid

If in recent years we have gotten used to one team being dominant over the other, this time it seems that the two biggest teams in Spain will fight for the title until the end.

As you remember, the European champions started the season excellently and ran at the top, but started to lose points and in the game against Espanyol on Saturday, Barca will arrive as a leader with a gap of 2 points over the big rival.

But Real may have a small advantage in the next rounds.

Firstly, because Robert Lewandowski is suspended in the ranks of Barcelona and on the other hand Karim Benzema is resting during the World Cup and will try to prove to everyone that with all due respect to Messi and Mbappe, the recent Ballon d'Or winner is still the best player in the world.

Rest well during the World Cup.

3. Greater Naples returns

What a shame that Diego Maradona is no longer alive.

The late Argentine missed Argentina's victory in the World Cup and this season he will probably also miss a major championship for his beloved Napoli, which he goes to its last championships in the 1980s.

Napoli, who, as I remember, lead Serie A by eight points over their rivals, enjoyed the rest of their two biggest stars: Habicha Kabazdalia and Victor Osiman.

The Georgian and the Nigerian did not play in the World Cup and this may be another advantage over Inter, Milan and Roma who sent more players to the World Cup.

Of course Milan, which is based on Theo Hernandez, Olivier Giroud and Rafael Laao.

By the way, Napoli's return game will be away against none other than the great Inter and in the Champions League they will be big favorites against Frankfurt, which they got in the round of 16.

Will Bayern manage without him?

4. Will Bayern Munich lose its hold on the top of the Bundesliga?

The German team was undoubtedly the disappointment of the World Cup.

The Germans, who were completely based on the players of Bayern Munich, already flew in the group stage and the biggest blow to Bayern was the injury of Manuel Neuer in a skiing accident after Qatar.

Neuer will not be available to Nagelsmann, who is left without a senior goalkeeper and with frustrated German players such as Thomas Muller, Kimmich, Musiale and Goretzka.

Beyond that, Sadio Mane is also still injured and it is not clear when he will return.

Will Freiburg, Union Berlin or maybe Leipzig and Dortmund take advantage of this and dethrone the eternal champion from the top?

Definitely his last season in Dortmund.

5. The rise of Jamal Musiale and Jude Bellingham

Speaking of the Bundesliga and Bayern Munich.

Jamal Musiale was perhaps the outstanding player of the Germans, but was eliminated with them in the group stage.

Jude Bellingham was one of England's standout players who were knocked out in the quarter-finals and now it will be very intriguing to see him juggle in the Borussia Dortmund uniform.

While Bayern Munich are working on extending Musiale's contract, the 19-year-old Englishman is certain to leave.

If not already in January, then this summer.

Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and also Real Madrid.

They all try to get their hands on the diamond, but only one will succeed.

Who will it be?

It is not clear, but in the meantime we enjoy watching him as the young captain of Dortmund.
