Amidst the Football team battles and Player battles going on, there is a small battle going on, between the La Liga fans and Barclays Premier League fans. Which is the superior league? Is it the La Liga? Or is it the Barclays Premier League?
Normally Football fans say, the Barclays Premier League is a better league than the La Liga. But some people don’t know the exact reason.
In this article I aim to let the people who don’t know the exact reason behind why actually the Barclays Premier League is superior to La Liga. Recently, I have come across many people who claim that La Liga teams perform better in the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League. And they also say that due to the reason, La Liga teams perform better in the European competitions, La Liga is superior to BPL. These people who claim so, does not know the actual reason, why people say BPL is superior to La Liga.
The Barclays Premier League is a physical and competitive league. The word ‘Strength’ is an important factor in the Premier League. Here the players come across tough tackles and they have no other option than dealing with it. And here he referees take the red card out of their pocket only when they see a very harsh or crucial tackle. The teams buy defenders who are strong and also fast. Defenders who lack any one of these factors will find it tough in England. The midfield and Strikers should also be strong enough to deal with the strong opponent defenders.
The La Liga is a goal scoring league. They don’t give importance to defending. Skill is what matters the most. And also La Liga now is dominated by three teams, Atletico, Barcelona, and Real. For the next season, we can easily predict the top three teams. It is not going to change unless the other teams are taken over by rich people. We can’t expect the lower teams to defeat the dominant teams. A lower team defeating a dominant team is very rare. And also we can see Ronaldo and Messi scoring lot of goals without difficulty. Yes, they are talented players, but they have an advantage of playing in a non-physical league.
We can see players, who go from the La Liga to Barclays Premier League, find it difficult to play there. Talented players can acclimatize. The best examples for this are Ozil and Soldado. Ozil transferred from Real Madrid to Arsenal for an amount of 50 million Euros. Ozil is a good feeder, but he is a little weak. This made his first season in the Barclays Premier League tough. But still we could see the talent in Ozil. He made some assists and also found net quite a few times. Soldado transferred from Valencia to Tottenham for a sum of 25 million. He was the captain of Valencia. He is a good finisher, but things never went easy for him at Tottenham. He scored some goals, but most of them were from penalties. He also was dropped from the side. On the other side, Ronaldo and Bale have an easy going life in Spain. Both of them find it easy to go past the defenders and find the net. But some defenders and holding defenders may find it difficult to play in the La Liga for a couple of years, because cards are easily given in the La Liga. So they will have to control their tackles.
I think have made it clear, why the Barclays Premier League is superior to the La Liga.
