Football | We decipher which is the best team in the world so far this season and in PlayOn99 News we explain why. Participate in the poll and we choose who gets the award for the best football team of 2021-22 – PlayOn99 News
During this last decade, soccer evolved, statistical readings were implemented that advanced over time and allow us to determine which are the best football teams.
We can know in detail the situations that each team created, but also the precise passes, blocks, tackles, progressions and even kilometers traveled by each player.
Although not everything is a matter of numbers: football never ceased to be an art and never lost its subjective value.
PlayOn99 News invites you to vote for the best football team so far in the 2021-22 season in the following poll and tell us why you did so in the comments.
What is judged when we think of the best football team in the world: titles, results or game? There are leagues that are more competitive than others, but we also understand that when there are qualifying rounds in continental tournaments, everything is set aside.
By this time of year, the teams from each country began to take off in their respective leagues and the Champions League has the final table set up.
That is why PlayOn99 News had to formulate a ranking of the 10 best teams in the world and explain why.
The Citizens are leaders of the Premier League with an 11-point advantage over Liverpool and 13 over Chelsea, while they have 8 consecutive wins and 15 wins in the last 16.
Although, as we said, there are subjective issues that put him above the rest: he dominates in each and every one of the phases of the game, from the first and the pressure to build goals.
The roles of each player are transitory, each player performs a different task depending on where the ball is and what they are looking to achieve.

The Whites won the Spanish Super Cup this weekend and are quiet leaders of LaLiga.
After a season that went from bad to average, they established themselves with the new coach -Carlo Ancelotti- and managed to work well to also be in the knockout stages of the Champions League.
Above all things, what stands out about Real Madrid is its simplicity. There is no player who is lacking in confidence with a coach who seems to go beyond technicalities and leans on locker room management.

The Bavarians lost Hans Flick at the helm of the team, but Julian Naggelsman took over with the aim of making the invincible Germany even better.
In the Bundesliga they are undisputed leaders not only this year, but for a decade, and they will have the acid test in the final phase of the highest European tournament.
If they work like the Champions League they won in Lisbon, they can once again be the invincible team that scored eight goals against Barcelona.

The Reds are another team that seems to have the manager above the rest: Jurgen Klopp managed to make them work like a true killing machine.
His suffocating pressure allows us to classify them as the soccer anaconda: if they manage to entangle you, they can kill you with goals.
They run at a disadvantage for being second in the Premier League, but they will surely fight in the Champions League with the condition that Anfield Road is usually a cauldron that intimidates rivals.

The only Italian team that makes up the PlayOn99 News list, Inter is the comfortable leader of Serie A and in Italy they manage as they please.
The presence of Lautaro Martínez and the functioning of the wings make the team a rival that would be difficult to beat due to its balance in attack and defense.
Roberto Mancini left a good foundation for Simone Inzaghi in coaching and, despite the loss of Romelu Lukaku, he was able to lead the team to fruition.

The Parisians are the Dream Team for the 2021-22 season with Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappé and Neymar, among others, but they have not achieved the desired performance.
In any case, it is one of the best-positioned teams in the world, although it will have a litmus test against Real Madrid in the knockout stages of the Champions League.
PSG is a comfortable leader in Ligue 1 and has had the luxury of losing and drawing minor games without a hair’s movement.
Manchester City have been dominant against Paris Saint-Germain…
But it is Mauricio Pochettino's side who strike first!
A lovely move involving Neymar and Lionel Messi is finished off by Kylian Mbappe ??

Third and last English team on the list, Chelsea is -undoubtedly- one of the best in the world for being, in addition, the current European champion.
Thomas Tuchel has done a great job at the helm of the Blues, although this winter he did not have a good time in terms of results and players.

The surprise of this list is the Dutch from Amsterdam who has managed to win all six matches in the group stage of the current Champions League.
Erik ten Hag once again placed Ajax among the best names in Europe this season and, despite being second in the Eredivisie, the 59 goals stand out and only 4! against in your local league.

The last two names on this list are in Bonus Track mode and the first to be mentioned is the Brazilian team that was champion of their country at the end of 2021.

Atlético Mineiro was eliminated from the Copa Libertadores in the semifinals, but proved to be one of the best teams on the continent and why not in the world.
The Brazilian champion has Hulk, Diego Costa, Nacho Fernández, Matías Zaracho, Eduardo Vargas, Diego Godín and Allan, who arrived from Liverpool, in his ranks, and wants to continue hiring the top stars in Europe to play in America.

The Argentine champion began 2022 as the eighth year in which they are commanded by Marcelo Gallardo, with whom they were twice champions of America and face the Barcelona of the MSN.
In the current 2021-22 season, they established themselves as local champions and achieved a performance that raised the eyes of PSG, Barcelona and Chelsea to win their coach.
With Julián Álvarez, youth revelation of the team on the continent and called up to the Argentine national team, they achieved a unique and superior performance that copies the highest standards of English teams such as Manchester City and Liverpool.

Which is the best team according to PlayOn99 News.
After reviewing the Top Ten teams in the world, PlayOn99 News came to the conclusion that Manchester City is the best team so far in the 2021-22 season and not just because they are leaders of the Premier League.
Each footballer in Guardiola’s team translates the situations of the game when they see an advantage for his team, but they also generate them.
The use of false 9 in the team explains perfectly the reasons why we chose the Citizens: despite not having the best strikers in the tournament -Liverpool has Salah, Mané, Jota and Firmino, and Chelsea has Lukaku- Werner, Havertz and Mountlos from Manchester are the top scorers in the Premier League.
How do they do that? Phil Foden would have to be the area reference, but he goes down and Kevin de Bruyne is the one who goes up, although the one who ends up breaking lines between central and lateral defenses is Joao Cancelo, the team’s supposed winger.
