All of these three teams are in serious trouble after their disappointing performance in domestic leagues.

If they don't get back on winning track, they might forget about winning the title.

Interesting is that all of this three teams lost at HOME.


England - Premier League

Arsenal vs West Bromwich    2-3

Nasri 75’, 90’   /  Odemwingie 50’, Jara 52’,  Thomas 73’


Arsenal lost to West Bromwich at home? It may sound like a joke but WBA did a miracle at Emirates Stadium, all thanks to errors from Arsenal goalkeeper Manuel Almunia. 

I am curious what Arsene Wenger's next excuse will be. Arsenal fans desperately want the Premier League title, but can Arsene Wenger bring them the title this season?


Germany - Bundesliga

Bayern Munich vs Mainz  1-2

Svensson 45’ (o.g.) / Allagui 15’   Szalai 77’


Mainz is a truly hit in Bundesliga! In six matches, they managed to win every one of them.

They just took three points against big favorites, Bayern Munich.

It is amazing how Mainz have 18 points while Bayern have only 8 points.



France - Ligue 1

Lyon vs Saint-Etienne  0-1

Payet 75’

Lyon only have one win and two draws after seven matches, and they are on 19th place while Saint-Etienne is on the top of Ligue 1.

What is going on with Lyon? After their huge domination in past decade, they just can't do anything right!

Rumors said that Lyon coach Claude Puel will be fired if he loses this match.


Also, I have to include Real Madrid's poor draw against Levante.

Inter lost its big Italian derby against Roma with a late Vucinic goal.

Chelsea lost to Manchester City and things may change in the Premier League.
