Unpredictable PL, La Liga… Six weeks into 2020/21 football season
• Supersport Promises Fans More Excitement
With six weeks into the 2020/21 season, all signs point to the season being a completely unpredictable one. The results in some of the games in the Premier League seem to suggest that it is not going to be a one-way traffic for the big teams.
In the Premier League, two unlikely teams, Everton and Aston Villa, are sitting at the top of the table. It is not the same for the top teams, who have all endured defeats through inconceivable score lines.
Last Saturday was a weird day in La Liga where both Real Batis and Barcelona lost widely to their fellow opponents. While Real Batis suffered a 2-0 loss to Atletico Madrid, Barca struggled in a 1-3 home loss to Real Madrid.
Though, it may be too early to lament in both the new PL and La Liga season, but a few games that have produced fairytale-like astonishing results seem to suggest that the season could be like none other in recent memory.
The PL games this season have given fans goals galore but have also resulted in heavy defeats for the supposed title contenders. It is the most perfect and fabled beginning to any football league, at least from a neutral point of view, but not so for any of the big teams in the competition.
Some of the biggest shockers witnessed so far this season include the 7-2 humiliation of Liverpool by Aston Villa, the 1-3 defeat suffered by Manchester United in the hands of Crystal Palace at Old Trafford as well as the 0-3 defeat of Leicester City by West Ham at the King Power Stadium.
Meanwhile, Supersport has promised more football excitement for the fans. Since the start of the new season, football fans have been able to view their favorite leagues, clubs and players in action on SuperSport.
