For a league that’s been dominated by Lyon for over a decade, PSG ran their title rivals close last season after finishing just five points behind them. The Parisians are very much a team on the up, but the key is keeping hold of best players like Marie-Antoinette Katoto, who scored 30 goals in 29 games last season!
9) Bayern Munich
One of the oldest teams in the women’s game, Bayern’s most impressive period in their 49-year history came back in 2014-15 when they went the whole season unbeaten to win the Bundesliga. Last season, they pushed one of the world’s best, Wolfsburg, to within four points of the title and finished as WUCL as semi-finalists!
Juve have come a long way in a very short space of time after being founded just two years ago in 2017 after winning win the double last season, losing just once in the league. The Old Lady’s one to watch? Last season’s top scorer with 13, 28-year-old Barbara Bonansea. Keep an eye on this lot – they’re starting to make some noise!
They might not have won the league last season, but Barcelona still bagged 78 points, 94 goals and a WUCL runners-up medal. The Catalan giants are all about hard work, hunger and sticking together. Their slick play is finessed by their stand-out star, former UEFA The Best award winner Leike Martens!
6) Atletico Madrid
Back-to-back La Liga champs and with Toni Duggan now leading the line, Atletico are in pretty sweet shape. The battering they took at the hands of Wolfsburg in the WUCL last season was more about how good the German outfit are, so you can forget that. Trust us – these Spanish gems will do bits this season!
The Blues were only narrowly beaten 3-2 by Lyon in last year’s WUCL, proving that their recent drop off in trophy-winning form doesn’t mean they can’t still mix it with the best. Fran Kirby is a baller, Ji So-yun has tek for days and Millie Bright is a brickwall at the back – Chels are a problem, readers!
4) Man. City
They’ve lost some big names over the past few seasons, but that hasn’t stopped them from fighting back with their own star signing of World Cup hero Ellen White. City have started well this season, too, after coming close to winning it last. Their FA Cup trophy win in May was proof they’re hungrier than ever to compete at the top!
English footy’s most successful women’s team ever are back to their best. Last season’s WSL title win was done in style after going clear at the top by seven points with 19 more goals than Man. City. Gaffer Joe Montemurro has got The Gunners buzzing and playing some sick possession-based footy with fire forward Vivianne Miedema finishing things off!
The current Bundesliga champs have been a force in German footy since they were founded in 2003. Their current squad is packed with talent, including Denmark baller Pernille Harder, which is why they’ve won three domestic titles in a row. Their huge 10-0 aggregate win over Atletico in the WUCL last season was banging!
The ledges at Lyon are bossing world footy right now. They’ve got some of the best players on the planet (Lucy Bronze and Ada Hegerberg), an incredible record in 2019 (89 goals scored and just 13 conceded in 24 games) and an unrivalled history (a record six WCL wins, 13 consecutive league titles). They’re the ones to beat!
