The dominance of Spanish football

The dominance of Spanish football is predominant this year in the European Cups. Three out of the four teams in the Champions and Europa League Finals. It will be the third consecutive season that a Spanish club lifts the Champions League trophy. But, the dominance does not start this year. It started many years ago.

Since 2000, Spanish teams have won 6 times the Champions League (3 Real Madrid and 3 Barcelona), 7th time will happen in May. On the other side Italian teams won it 3 times, English club 2 times as well as German clubs (Bayern Munich) and Porto with Mourinho won it for Portugal in 2004. The dominance of Real Madrid and Barcelona over the rest of the clubs is blatant.

With two Spanish clubs qualifying for the Final of the Champions League for the 3 time in the last 16 years after 2000 and 2014, Spanish football dominates European leagues. It will be the same Final as in 2014 and Atletico will try to win over Real Madrid this time and hold on to it until the referee ends the game. In the other European League the Europa League, FC Sevilla qualified for the third straight final and have won the last 2. They will face Liverpool in the first European final for the Reds since 2007.
