What the domestic leagues will look like if the Super League 12 are sent off

Sunday’s announcement of a dreaded European “Super League” raised the possibility of an unprecedented change in football.

Already, the 12 founding clubs are apparently threatened with expulsion from other competitions as a result.

The so-called “big six” of the Premier League, Spanish giants Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid and Serie A trio Juventus, Milan and Inter have broken ranks.

They accepted the formation of the breakaway competition.

The announcement of Sunday’s uniform by most of the clubs involved confirmed that the Super League will be made up of 15 founding clubs.

Three clubs must be added to the first 12 unconfirmed invited teams.

It will run as a midweek tournament alongside the teams’ respective national leagues and guarantees the founding clubs a share of € 3.5 billion.

This is “only to support their infrastructure investment plans and offset the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic”.

But, anticipating the announcement following much media speculation, UEFA released a statement co-signed by the national associations of England, Spain and Italy, and the respective top leagues of those countries.

He reiterated a threat to ban the players and teams involved from participating in other competitions.

If this is a debate that will rage for some time, with the legality of such measures unclear at the moment, it raises the possibility of a Premier League without its ‘big six’.

He will also see a La Liga miss FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, and Serie A send Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan out.

With that in mind, we took a look at what these three divisions would look like in the – admittedly unlikely – event that all 12 clubs in the Super League are sent off.

Of course, this means that the results involving them are erased …

Who would have thought in 2013, when he was named Alex Ferguson’s successor at Manchester United, that David Moyes’ first Premier League title would come as West Ham boss?

Well, if the “big six” were kicked out and their results were zero, it would be the hammers sitting on top of the pile – and some distance away.

Moyes’ men are on 49 points in 21 matches after suffering just two losses.

Oddly enough, the exclusion of the Super League clubs would apparently harm Leicester City, as they only lost three games to them in 2020/2021.

West Ham has been beaten seven times by the opposition of the “big six”.

Nevertheless, Leicester City are reportedly still on track to return to the Champions League.

Leeds United (1.8) and Everton (1.6) appear to be the favorites to join them, due to their better points-per-game record than Aston Villa (1.5).

Fair play with Real Betis, who have already embraced a future without Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and FC Barcelona by removing them from the La Liga table which can be found on their website.

Unfortunately for Real Betis, that same table now has bitter rivals Sevilla sitting at the top.

In fact, Sevilla probably shouldn’t be left out of the real title race just yet.

This given that they are actually just six points behind leaders Atletico Madrid and have yet to face Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid.

In the La Liga table excluding the “big three”, Sevilla have 60 points in 26 games, giving them a 13-point lead over Villarreal.

It also shows how bad Los Nervionenses’ record against Real Madrid, Barca and Atletico Madrid is, as they’ve only taken four points from them this season.

Rounding off the top four would be Real Betis third and Real Sociedad fourth.

series A

Juventus’ stranglehold on Serie A is set to end regardless of UEFA and the league’s action.

Having won each of the previous nine Scudetti, the old lady has been disastrous under Andrea Pirlo for much of the season.

So helping to establish a new semi-closed competition under the pretext of needing better opponents is the logical step …

While Atalanta would be leading a Serie A without Juve, Inter Milan and AC Milan, technically Lazio would be on track for title success.

The Biancocelesti have played one game less than Atalanta but are only behind on goal difference —— their points-per-game record is 2.24, slightly more than Bergamo’s 2.15.

Napoli (2.12) and Roma (1.96) would also remain in contention if the “big three” would be excluded from the competition.
