Stand up for the champions: Real Madrid crowned new champions of Spain
I will start this write up by telling you all in case you don't know that I am a Real Madrid fan. So I am extremely happy to be writing this. Real Madrid beat Villareal 2-1 last night to claim their 34th La Liga title. It was Karim Benzema who has had a sensational season that scored the 2 goal. This is about the longest La Liga season because of the COVID-19 Pendemic that caused the league to be put on hold for about 3 months and the closest race in recent years. The winner was decided after 11 months of play. Winning the 34th title has taken Real Madrid 8 clear of their arch-rivals, Barcelona who have won the title 26 times Barcelona have had a chaotic season where they had to change their manager from Ernesto Valverde to Quique Setien and Real Madrid capitalized on this. Barcelona were leading the race before the lockdown by 2 points but the pendulum changed after the lockdown where Real Madrid won all their 10 matches but Barcelona were unable to match this performance of Real Madrid after the lockdown seeing them dropping a number of points. Another thing that helped Real Madrid was that they have a lot of quality players on their bench and this help them to rotate players. Since 11 games are to be played in the space of 5 weeks, Zidane kept rotating the players which made them not to be tired. It us also important to acknowledge the contributions of the players to this title win, most especially Karim Benzema, Sergio Ramos, Thibaut Courtois and Casemiro who have played key role in the success. Karim Benzema single handedly carried the attack by scoring 21 goes so far and he is currently the second highest goal scorer in the league. Sergio Ramos has stood out as an extremely important contributor in Real Madrid's success. Being the captain, he has played the leadership role well and he also lead the defense to be the best defense in Europe this season by conceding only 23 goal with so many clean sheets. Finally, I think we have to praise the manager Zidane, who it looks like, cannot put a foot wrong in management. In fact it got to a stage where I said to my self that I will never complain about his player selection anymore. Even if he decides to use 4 goal keepers as strikers, I will not complain because I know he is Zidane. And as Captain Sergio Ramos said, "**anything he touch turns to gold**" Congratulations to the players, coach, staffs, management and fans of Real Madrid around the world.

Best club of every country in Europe (part 1)
So here is the list of every country's Best clubs. Some of this might be controversial. I have selected clubs that have better performance at both domestic and European levels. The condition for selection is that they must be currently playing in the top-flight league. The teams are majorly accounted for European success but must have equally good performance in the domestic league. Albania KF Tirana Founded: 1920 Klubi i Futbollit Tirana is an Albanian football club based in the country's capital city, Tirana. It is the most successful club in Albania with winning Albanian Superliga a record 27 times, Albanian cup 16 times, and Albanian Supercup 11 times achieving domestic double 3 times. They are also the most successful time in Albania on the European stage, having progressed from the first rounds on 11 occasions since making their European debut in the 1965–66 European Cup. They reached Round of 16 in European Competitions four times, three such in the European Cup alone in the 1980s. The club also holds the record of being the highest-ever ranking Albanian club according to IFFHS, having been ranked 31st in the world in 1987. They were the first-ever winners of Albanian Superliga back in 1930 and since have been dominating the Albanian league. The only strong oppositions are Dinamo Tirana and FK Partizani. They have participated in all the top tier national championships since their formation except for the year 2016-2017 when they finished 9th place and were relegated to the second tier. But the aced their way back to the top league the immediate year and have finished in 2nd place in the 2018-2019 season. Although they have been dominating the Superliga, they haven't won the title since the 08-09 season. This season was to be their redemption as they were on the top of the table with 9 points clear. Andorra FC Santa Coloma Founded: 1986 FC Santa Coloma is the most successful team with thirteen titles. It is also the most successful team in the Copa Constitució, winning it ten times. FC Santa Coloma has two unique achievements for an Andorran team in European competitions, never repeated so far by any Andorran team: it is the only team from Andorra to win a match in any European competition and the only team that did not concede a goal in a match in a European competition. This club has been playing European football for the past 18 years competing in either Champions League or Europa League, missing out only on 3 occasions(2003, 2005, 2006). Azerbaijan Qarabag FK Founded: 1951 as Mahsul and then in 1987 as Qarabag. Qarabağ Futbol Klubu is the most successful Club in Azerbaijan in terms of European competition. It is still a top team in Azerbaijan League only second to Neftchi Baku with 7 titles as compared to their 8. Pre-USSR disintegration, Qarabag won 2 Azerbaijan SSR league and 1 Azerbaijan SSR Cup. In Recent Times they have won 7 League titles, 6 Cups, and 1 Supercup. Qarabağ is one of the two teams in Azerbaijan, along with Neftchi Baku which has participated in all Azerbaijan Premier League championships so far. Qarabağ became the second Azerbaijani team to advance to the group stage of a European competition, making its first of three consecutive seasons in the UEFA Europa League group stages. It is also the first Azerbaijani team to advance to the group stage of the higher UEFA Champions League. Austria SK Rapid Wein Founded: 1899 Sportklub Rapid Wien is the most successful club in Austria. They have won a record 32 Austrian Championships, 14 Austrian cups being the second only to be beaten by their neighbors, FK Austria Wein but maintaining a 100% win rate in the finals by winning each of the 14 games. They also have won the German Championship(now renamed as Bundesliga) and DFB Pokal cup and they are the only Austrian club to win this. Rapid reached its first European final in 1985, losing 3–1 in the Cup Winners' Cup Final to Everton in Rotterdam. Eleven years later, in the same tournament's final in Brussels, Rapid lost 1–0 to Paris Saint-Germain. Rapid's best performance in the European Cup came in the 1960–61 season when they reached the semi-final before being eliminated by eventual winners Benfica, 4–1 on aggregate. In recent years, Rapid hasn't won any cups, their last piece of silverware was from 2008-2009 when they were crowned as the champions of Austria. They were the first-ever winners of the Austrian Championship back in 1911. 2015 mark the last season when they were in the top 2. Armenia FC Pyunik Founded: 1992 Football Club Pyunik Yerevan is the most successful club in Armenia with winning 14 League titles and a total of 31 domestic titles, by far the most by any team in Armenia.
