Surprise across the Europe

As the championships around the Europe are giving their first game of the new season, the surprises didn’t wait much to be seen. The first two leagues that started, Bundesliga and Ligue 1 brought the biggest ones.

The main difficulty came for the hard betting ones, which lost a lot of money on, let’s say, 100% sure bets. Once again, the expression used by me a lot, “the ball is round”, came to show that.

Bayern, the big favorite for the title in Germany, was defeated on their home field on Allianz Arena by Gladbach, a team that recently played the game that assured it’s place in the first league in Germany.

Moving to their neighbors in France, PSG, the club that invested lots of money in transfers this summer, lost 0-1 in front of Lorient. Marseille has not done any better, having drawn 2-2 with Sochaux on the Velodrome.

These things show us once again that a victory is not obtained until the last whistle of the referee. A game starts from 0 – 0 and the difference is made by on spot imagination combined with skills from all the players from a team. This is why, football is named the king sport!
