European football season is over in England and Germany. Serie A, Ligue 1 and La Liga will conclude this coming weekend. We know the champions of all the five leagues. This is the time to look back and analyze the facts. Today, we start with records. This is because we have a new king in European football when it comes to domestic success. Take a look at five most successful clubs in domestic Leagues in Europe.
5. Manchester United- 20 EPL Trophies
Premier League giant Manchester United has dominated the division since 1992 with 13 crowns. However, when it comes to the European domestic success, they occupy the fifth place on the table. The English is certainly more competitive if you compare with other four Leagues. Sir Alex Ferguson was determined to dethrone Liverpool who led the table with 18 crowns for many years. He managed to push it two more to stop at 20 but nobody has moved it further. 2017/18 season was the best for the Red Devils since the legendary manager left the club.
5. Barcelona- 25 La Liga Trophies
Barcelona lifted La Liga in 2017/18 season to make it 8 crowns in 10 seasons. However, their total tally stands at 25. This means they still need to win eight more trophies to go level with their bitter rivals Real Madrid. The Catalans were two matches away from a historic unbeaten season but Levante 5-4 defeat on Sunday means they will not achieve what Arsenal did in 2003/04 season.
3. Bayern Munich- 28 Bundesliga Trophies
Bundesliga is perhaps the only League in Europe lacking the much-needed competition at the moment. Bayern Munich has lifted their 6th consecutive League title which is a record. The Bavarians signed all the top players from Clubs like Borussia Dortmund who used to challenge them. The 2017/18 title made it 28 League trophies. They occupy the third spot when it comes to most successful clubs domestically in Europe top five Leagues.
