English Premier League 2021/2022 Review

Match of the season Liverpool 2 – 2 Man City

City dominated the first half but missed several chances, and were punished when Sadio Mane scored for Liverpool after 59 minutes. Liverpool’s advantage lasted only 10 minutes until Phil Foden received a pass from Gabriel Jesus and struck a low finish by Alisson. Anfield exploded in joy after 76 minutes as Salah slalomed past several of the City defenders to hammer home a spectacular finish. City’s effort deserved at least a point, which they got when De Bruyne’s strike deflected off Joel Matip and beat Alisson with nine minutes left. The Reds could have won with five minutes remaining, but Rodri’s spectacular block saved Fabinho’s goalbound shot out.

Top scorer

The English Premier League is known for their great players and two of the absolute best topped the top scorers list. Both Mohamed Salah and Son Heung-Min scored a total of 23 goals during the 2021/2022 season.

Top assister

Not only scoring goals but providing them aswell, Mohamed Salah has done everything for Liverpool on the pitch. He assisted 13 goals bringing his total contributions to 36 in 35 matches.

La Liga 2021/2022 Review

Match of the season Celta Vigo 3 – 3 FC Barcelona

In the final match before the Spaniard Xavi took over the job of Dutchman Koeman, Barcelona blew a three-goal lead against Celta Vigo. At halftime, Ansu Fati, Sergio Busquets, and Memphis Depay had given the visitors total control. With 16 minutes remaining, Nolito made it 3-2. Celta Vigo completed a remarkable comeback, with Iago Aspas scoring twice, including a 96th-minute equaliser. Aspas’ second means Barcelona had gone four games without a win in La Liga and the title race really seemed over from that point.

Top assister

The assist race was a close one in La Liga with Ousmane Dembélé just edging out topscorer Karim Benzema. The French winger provided just one more assist, but he needed less games to do it. He assisted 13 goals in 21 games which meant he averaged 0.62 assists per match.

Top scorer

The top scorers chart was dominated by Real Madrid’s main man, Karim Benzema. The Frenchman scored a dazzling amount of 27 goals in just 32 games. This means he averaged 0.84 goals per match in La Liga.

Bundesliga 2021/2022 Review

Match of the season VFL Bochum 4-2 Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich grabbed the lead against VfL Bochum in just nine minutes in February. However, they were behind 4-1 at halftime, and all four goals (actually, three, with the other a penalty) were outstanding. Bayern felt the need to replace Dayot Upamecano at halftime, and while they did score a goal, the game ended 4-2 in the season’s biggest upset. Bayern is the record champion of Germany.

Top scorer

It was another top scorer accolade for Robert Lewandowski with 35 goals in 34 games. The Pole, who has declared his interest to leave the club in the summer, also recorded the most shots on goal and the most efforts against the woodwork in the division.

Top assister

His Bayern teammate, Thomas Muller, picked up the most assists for a third time in four seasons with 18 in the league. The German, who signed a contract extension earlier this season, remains a key part of the Munich team. You can retrieve this data with Sportmonks’ Football API. An example of this is shown to the right. To retrieve this data you will need to add the include assistsscorers.player to the Topscorers by Season ID endpoint.

Serie A 2021/2022 Review

Match of the season Inter Milan 1 – 2 AC Milan

Six minutes before the break, Ivan Perisic met Hakan Calhanoglu’s corner with a low volley from 10 yards out, putting Inter ahead. From this point on, the league leaders dominated the game until 15 minutes from time, when sub Brahim Diaz’s deflected shot found its way to the far post, where Giroud poked it home. Three minutes later, the French striker won the game after receiving a pass inside the area from Davide Calabria. And although getting a touch to the ball, Samir Handanovic was unable to keep it out. Inter were only a point ahead of their local rivals at the top of Serie A at the time. AC Milan dropped only 8 points in Serie A after this match.

Top scorer

Ciro Immobile topped the goal scorers chart in the Serie A. He scored 27 goals in 31 games, including 7 penalties. Lazio’s main man was vital in their fifth-place finish.

Top assister

The assist race in the Italian Serie A was very close with not one player really rising above the opposition. The player who came out on top was Domenico Berardi. The Italian winger provided 13 assists for his teammates.

Ligue 1  2021/2022 Review

Match of the season RC Lens 2 – 2 AS Monaco

Monaco let slip their advantage in the dying seconds, drawing 2-2 at Lens to finish third on the table. Goals from Benoît Badiashile (34′) and Wissam Ben Yedder (62′) cancelled out Przemysław Frankowski’s (30′) opener for the hosts. But just as Monaco were ready to claim the runners up spot, Ignatius Ganago equalised for Lens in the sixth-minute of added time. A preview of the data is shown on the right. You can retrieve this data by using the Match statistics endpoint and entering the Fixture_ID.

Top scorer

PSG had another great season, and their star player delivered once again. Kylian Mbappé, 23 years old, scored 25 goals in 34 games. Ben-Yedder took second place with 24 points.

Top assister

In the French Ligue 1, he was the leading scorer as well as the top assister. Kylian Mbappé assisted 19 times for his teammates. This brings his overall goal output for the Ligue 1 season to 44 in 34 games.
