Of the first five teams in the Bundesliga, four are friends of Football Impact who have visited us repeatedly. Borussia Mönchengladbach, SC Freiburg, VfL Wolfsburg and Borussia Dortmund are the four teams that occupy these positions.
The leader of the highest category of German football is Borussia Mönchengladbach, with 19 points in the 9 games played. Second is Bayern Munich, and after this we find SC Friburg and VfL Wolfsburg, all in Champions League positions.
Behind we have Borussia Dortmund, who ranks fifth at a single point in the Champions League positions and three in the lead.
On the next day the Mönchengladbach team will visit the Bayer Leverkusen field. SC Freiburg will face Werder Bremen, while Dortmund and Wolfsburg will meet at Signal Iduna Park.
Our friends of Slavia Praha lead the Synot Liga with an important advantage over second place, Viktoria Plzen, also a friend of Football Impact.
After the 14th-day dispute, in the next match, the team from Prague will finish the first round leaders no matter what happens, since they accumulate nine points of advantage over their immediate pursuer.
The team of the capital of the Czech Republic, in addition to the current leader of the 1.Liga, is also the current champion, having won 2 of the last 3 editions.
In second position we have Viktoria Plzen, who has won 3 of the last 5 championships.
Finally, Sparta Praha is the third friend of Football Impact in the Synot Liga. The team ranks seventh with 21 points, only one point and one place behind the access to the championship group.
46 years after Granada CF ended up as a leader in the first division, this past Sunday the Nasrid team has made history again. It is a big feat for a humble team like the one coached by Diego Martínez.
Our Nasrid friends have started the 2019/20 season spectacularly, accumulating half of their points goal in 10 games for the whole year.
Although we could highlight several players such as Domingos Duarte, Rui Silva, Machis or Herrera, the truth is that the Andalusian team is working very well globally. There are no names that stand out from the group and collective work is the star player.
The next game of the team will be on Thursday, when they will face Getafe, a team that should be a direct rival for the permanence: but in the current situation, the team does not set limits and will try to win this game again to continue dreaming.
The Andalusians were on the Costa del Sol performing a stage this summer with Football Impact, before the season began. During that time they faced first and second division teams, both Spanish and foreign.
The teams that played against Granada CF were: Reading FC, AD Alcorcón, UD Almería, Real Valladolid CF, UD Las Palmas and RB Linense.
Our friends of Malmö FF rank third in Allsvenskan, the Swedish footballtop category. The team had the same points that the first one last day, but a defeat has separated them 3 points from the lead.
This stumble has relegated our friends to third place, although it is the team that has lost the least games of the championship, it accumulates some draws. Now the team has to regain this advantage in the only two remaining games, something that seems complicated, but not impossible.
Belowthem we find Östersunds FK, in the eleventh position. The team has no options above, and with its victory last week the danger of relegation is now mathematically impossible.
We are already in the equator of the group stage of the Europa League and some of the friends of Football Impact are in first position of their respective groups.
Sevilla FC, framed in -Group A, counts their matches by victories and now has 9 points, five points from the second place. It seems very likely that we will see the Sevillans in the next round.
In Group B we found up to 3 friends of Football Impact: FC København, Dinamo de Kiev and Malmö (first, second and third respectively). Between the three they will have to fight for two positions since Lugano does not seem to have many possibilities (with a single point).
Finally we find two Swiss teams leading their respective groups: FC Basel Group C and Young Boys Bern G. Although those in Basel add up to one point more than their compatriots, we must highlight the incredible participation of those in Bern, first in a group with Glasgow Rangers, FC Porto and Feyenoord.
Yesterday concluded the third matchday of the 2019/20 Champions League with different results for the friends of Football Impact. In the absence of 3 days there is still everything to decide, although the favorites are taking positions to get the pass to the round of 16.
Liverpool was the only one of the Friends of Football Impact who got the victory, by winning another friend of Football Impact, the KRC Genk, by 4-1. The team from Anfield will receive the Belgians next day 5th in search of a place in the round of 16.
Another friend of Football Impact, the Slavia Prague, played a great game against FC Barcelona, although it was defeated by 2-1. But the Czech team pushed strong to the Catalans during several phases of the match and even had two chances to tie in the last minutes.
Other friends of Football Impact were less lucky, such as Club Brugge KV, which was defeated by PSG; FC Lokomotiv Moscow, that was defeated in its duel against Juventus in Italy; and Borussia Dortmund, which was won by Inter, with which he tied with 4 points in the struggle for the second place.
Granada CF continues in a fantastic moment of form and is third in LaLiga Santander, only behind Real Madrid and Barça. After the dispute of the first nine days, only two points separate the Nasrid team from the first position.
Sevilla closes the area that gives access to European competitions, while Celta, Eibar and Mallorca are struggling to avoid the relegation places.
In LaLiga SmartBank, Almería continues second, in positions of direct promotion, while Rayo Vallecano (4th) is in the playoff zone for promotion to LaLiga Santander.
In the lower part of the silver league, Malaga has won again after a streak of bad results and hopes to continue along this line to return to the corresponding positions by staff and history.
After this break during which the national teams have played their qualifying matches for the 2020 Euro Cup, it is time to return to league competitions. The Eredivisie returns to action next Saturday with a match between AZ Alkmaar and Heerenveen, two old friends of Football Impact.
This 2019 we were visited by a total of 5 teams of the Eredivise, which are:
-Feyenoord. The 2017 champion ranks in ninth position, although only two points from the fifth.
–Willem II. The team from Tilburg is tenth, tied to points with the Feyenoord.
-Groningen. The team of “farmers” is in the middle area of the table, at position 12th with 10 points.
-PEC Zwolle and FC Emmen are outside the relegation zone, with 7 points, just one point from the danger zone.
After the return of international matches our friends hope to ge better results to climb positions in the standings.

After 11 days of LaLiga 123 have been played, we found some of the friends of Football Impact in the promotion zone to the highest category of Spanish football.
In second position we find UD Almería, only behind Cádiz CF, the undisputed leader. The team from Almería remains in the second position despite the recent streak of poor results.
The UD Las Palmas is in the opposite case, which has won the last four games, what has taken it to the promotion positions, just one point from UD Almeria, which holds a direct promotion position.
Behind, a short distance from the promotional positions we find Rayo Vallecano, AD Alcorcón and UD Extremadura, in 7th, 14th and 16th positions.
Finally, Mälaga CF and RC Deportivo de La Coruña occupy the lowest part of the classification with 8 points. Although it is not the desirable situation, both teams can avoid the relegation places with a victory, since they are only 3 points away.
