5 European teams that are still unbeaten in their respective leagues
While we fast approach the festive season of Christmas, it's still business as usual in European football with a thicket of fixtures lined-up week in week out. The race to the finish line is hotting up, as the teams are preparing to go all guns blazing for a frantic second-half.
The 2017/18 season in Europe is on the cusp of its halfway mark, yet we have some teams who are still unbeaten; clubs that are yet to lose a single game in the domestic competitions and show no signs of slowing down.
Here are the 5 teams that are still unbeaten in their respective leagues:
#5 Sporting CP (15 games)
The Portuguese giants, for all the glory in their past, are without a league title since 2002. Amusing as it may seem, Sporting CP look dead set on breaking the duck this season, for they are 15 games unbeaten in the league, winning 12 times and drawing thrice.
Led by the blistering strike form of Bas Dost, the Lions have not only looked threatening up front, but have also maintained a mean defensive structure that has leaked only 9 goals so far, the joint second-lowest at this stage. All these factors have contributed to their positive beginning in the 2017/18 season in Primeira Liga.
With a string of big victories in other domestic cup games too, Sporting are staring at a successful season after a mediocre 16/17 campaign. However, league glory has eluded them for uncharacteristically long time, that would be their primary objective.
Their current run holds them in good stead on that front.
