Top 3 questions fans will be asking ahead of the 2019/20 season
It’s barely two months before the 2019/20 football season commences across Europe’s major leagues and fans are already getting excited about what the season may hold.
The Premier League, Serie A, La Liga, French Ligue, Bundesliga, and the Eredivisie will surely provide excitement for football followers around the world and we are all looking forward to this.
However, ahead of the new season, these are some of the questions on the lips of fans and we’ve taken note of some of them which we’ll discuss here.
1. Could this be the season that Juventus lose the Serie A title?
This question is arguably becoming stale but nevertheless, it has to be asked. This is due to the fact that there will be a few changes in the faces at the dugouts of almost all the Serie A’s elite clubs.
Maurizio Sarri is now the man at Juventus, Antonio Conte is the man at Inter Milan, Paulo Fonseca is the man at Roma, and Marco Giampaolo is the man at AC Milan.
It’s unarguable that Maurizio Sarri will need some time to instill his playing style on the Juventus side.
The Italian tactician and his Sarriball style will be strange to a Juventus side with more emphasis on defensive football over the years, similar to what was attainable at Chelsea before his move to Stamford Bridge last season.
Regardless, it would depend on if Juve’s rivals in the Serie A will be up and doing. Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli will surely be looking to take advantage of the situation. Even the self-acclaimed serial winner in Antonio Conte will be looking to take his chances with Inter Milan.
However, Maurizio Sarri landed the first career trophy as a manager in his first and only season at Chelsea and will be looking to achieve more with Juventus.
Therefore, it remains to be seen if Juve’s dominance will continue or if other sides will be up to the task of wrestling the Serie A title away from them in the upcoming season as they try to get used to a new and more attack-minded playing style with an emphasis on building from the back.
2. How will the Premier League pan out – Who will come out tops?
Manchester City successfully defended the Premier League title and will be looking to go one better and win it for a third consecutive time under Pep Guardiola.
It’s a no-brainer that very few punters will be willing to bet against the Citizens’ retention of the Premier League title in the 2019/20 league season. Punters can find decent odds at www.thebookiesoffers.co.uk where stakes can be done appropriately.

You could find odds of 2/1 0r sometimes 4/1 odds from these bookies stating the likelihood of a player’s stay or departure. Meanwhile, you may take advantage of our daily football predictions here.
With regards to Man City’s quest for dominance next season, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, who have proven to be worthy rivals will surely have a thing or two to say.
Liverpool won the UEFA Champions League last season and will surely prioritize the Premier League title in the upcoming 2019/20 season as it has eluded the Reds for decades.
Meanwhile, the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur may still not be good enough to take the fight to the two favorites. Man United’s 2018/19 season ended in a fiasco, casting doubts on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s impressive start, and Chelsea are currently on the search for a new boss.
Bookmakers have released odds for the 2019/20 English Premier League season. Manchester United has 16/1, whereas Arsenal has 25/1 odds of winning the 2019/20 title. Tottenham stands at 12/1.
Manchester City are Bookmakers’ favorite with odds at 4/6, having won the last two titles. Liverpool are rightfully second favorites with the bookmakers with 11/4 with Sky Bet.
Frank Lampard is being reported as the potential next manager at Chelsea but will the experience he has garnered at Championship side Derby County be good enough in a Chelsea side with huge pressure? It remains to be seen if he’s confirmed as Chelsea manager.
Meanwhile, Arsenal will be looking to get back into the top 4 after missing out for two consecutive seasons. Tottenham will definitely strengthen ahead of the new season.
The 2019/20 Premier League season beckons. We wait to see how events pan out.
3. Real Madrid will be looking to take the fight to Barcelona in La Liga
The Los Blancos have taken over the summer transfer market and are making strong statements with the acquisitions they’ve landed thus far while they keep an eye on more high profile targets.
Barcelona are also not resting on their laurels as they are also in the news for reportedly targetting some high profile players.
Real Madrid have already signed Eden Hazard, Eder Militao, Rodrygo, and Luka Jovic. They have also been linked with moves for the likes of Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe.
Barcelona are reportedly eyeing a move for Neymar, and have also been heavily linked with the acquisition of Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid.
We are surely in for a tough La Liga race in the 2019/20 as both major rivals put plans in place. Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid wouldn’t also want to be left out.
The 2019/20 season will surely be an exciting one and we look forward to it.
