The Football Manager series has been going strong for decades, causing divorces and soaking up thousands of hours of people’s lives. So, can this football game predict the 2019/20 season?
Who will win the Premier League?
Manchester City – 86 Points
Not the biggest surprise here but Manchester City win the Premier League here with a total of 86 points and claim the title for a third succesive time, a feat only matched by Manchester rivals, United. Sergio Aguero would score 18 goals in the league and they would re-sign Stefan Savic from Atletico Madrid and Odsonne Edouard from Celtic.
Who will win the Champions League?
Manchester City – beating Real Madrid 2-0 after Extra Time
So Pep Guardiola will finally win the Champions League with a team other than his native Barcelona. He would do it against Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid in Istanbul with goals coming from Gabriel Jesus. Can they really take a seat amongst the icons who have won the Champions League in years gone by?
Who will win the Europa League?
Arsenal – beating Ajax 3-0
It was certainly a good evening for Unai Emery in Gdansk, where he would go one better than last season and easily beat Dutch side Ajax 3-0 with goals coming from Nicolas Pepe, Matteo Guendouzi and Alexandre Lacazette. Can they do the business in Europe’s second competition this season?
Who will win the other ‘Top 5’ leagues?
Bayern Munich will come out on top in the Bundesliga, finishing 5 points ahead of RB Leipzig to reclaim the German title. In Italy, Juventus will secure their 9th consecutive title with a 15 point gap back to AC Milan. Diego Simeone will lead Atletico Madrid to a shock title win in Spain, only secured on the last day ahead of Barcelona. In the least shocking prediction here, PSG are tipped to win Ligue 1 at a canter ahead of Lyon.
What do you think of these predictions? Can Manchester City do the Champions League and Premier League double? Will Atletico manage to out-muscle Barcelona to win La Liga? Let us know in the comments below!
