Bayer Leverkusen finally on the right path The women's Bundesliga table isn't always the most surprising; most of the time, it's the same teams in the title race. But this week, it's a little different, with Bayer Leverkusen sitting fourth with 23 points after 14 games. This weekend, the team secured a dominant and impressive 4-2 victory over Turbine Potsdam, thanks in part to a hat trick from top scorer Milena Nikolic, who now has 10 goals in 13 games. Bayer Leverkusen may be a big name in men's football, but the women's team has often failed to unleash its full potential in the past.

The Burkina Faso international has already become a key player at the club and his phenomenal rise over the last year has not been overlooked by the eagle-eyed scouts of top European clubs. Following the imminent move of Dayot Upamecano to Bayern Munich from RB Leipzig in the summer, Tapsoba is now regarded as the brightest young defensive talent in Germany and one of the brightest in Europe in his position. And it is hardly a surprise that he is wanted by so many clubs despite his young age and relatively lesser amount of experience at the top level.

UEFA and Europe’s biggest clubs are set to kill off the proposed Super League - and adopt the planned revamp of the Champions League. In the clearest sign of the new mood in European football, Uefa General Secretary Giorgio Marchetti opened the general assembly of the European Club Association with a withering blast at the Super League plans pushed by Real Madrid and backed by Manchester United and Liverpool. And that was followed up as ECA head and Juventus president Andrea Agnelli urged the clubs to commit to the Uefa-led proposal for a 36-team elite competition from 2024. In what was a blatant attack on the Super League plotters, Marchetti said: “We realise that unity can easily be dissolved when insidious ideas are pursued under the pretense of survival, growth or business needs. “Unfortunately, the rest of football, about 99 per cent of it, would not be invited to enjoy this new super union. “Surviving this affliction is not just about quick fixes or effective … [Read more...] about European Super League set to be killed off for new radical Champions League format from 2024 including 36-team table
