After a weekend of football drama, heart-breaks, 89th-minute penalties being awarded, title contenders being slaughtered and huge statements and discoveries being made (Juventus and Manchester United) I have selected 3 teams that, unlike some other teams that can’t stop conceding goals (Did I mention that I love Chelsea?), they have been as brutal up front as they’ve been at the back.
The Citizens had another ‘routine’ win over the weekend and Watford was the one who got the beating. So far, they’ve started the season so well, they have now won four of four, have scored 10 goals in the process and have kept clean sheets all the while. During all this, they’ve set a new club record as regards their current form: WWWWWWWWWW. They’re still behind Chelsea in the title race and it’s still too early to call right?
Paris Saint Germain
It’s understandable (barely) if you feel it’s the French Ligue 1 and PSG, as the only “major” team in the league (that you know), scoring 7, keeping 4 clean sheets in 4 is not a surprise. Well, what can I say? You’ve said it all but, only team or not, they’ve played 4 games (against 44 men) and have not conceded a goal. Just maybe they’re the only team in the league afterall.
Seems they’re still pissed at the fact that some other team carted away their “usual” end-of-the-season present last campaign and now they’re out with a resolution to get it back! After four games, the Eredivisie outfit have banged in 12 past their opponents and have refused to let them return the favour. It’s four wins out of four for them and there’s no ruling out the possibility of getting their treasure back at the end of the seaon. Or maybe they won’t get it back. It’s just the beginning of the football season.
Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich
Both clubs have scored quite a number already this season, have won on the trot too but have each conceded a goal apiece.
Have a great week ahead! Send in your own Real MVP(s) for the weekend too by dropping a comment and you can follow me on twitter @rotdav and let’s talk more football 😉
