The Crucial January Month

As the second half of football season has started kicking off, so does the nerve wreaking suspense if the league leaders will hold on to their respective spot. Real Madrid for that matter was able to salvage a 2-1 comeback victory and stretched their lead over Barca to eight points. But a win by Barcelona at Nou Camp tomorrow will trim the deficit back to five, while Valencia was unable to keep up the pace as they lost at home to Real Sociedad.

While across in the English Channel, the title chasing Spurs wasted a chance to joined league leaders Man City and ManU after they were held with a stunning draw at home by the relegation threatened Wolverhampton. But the opposite happened at Old Trafford as ManU don’t seem to have trouble manhandling Bolton and avoid a three-game losing streak. With the result, they are now level on points with city rivals Man City but The Blues could take back the lead if they win at bottom club Wigan Athletic on Monday.

And in Serie A, the only game was abandoned due to persistent rain which will be replayed in a later date. So Sunday is a big day for the league leaders, Milan and Juve, if they can hold on the top two spot. The Rossoneri’s has a big obstacle as they face city rival, Inter, at the San Siro. Whereas, Juventus is pretty much confident as they haven’t tasted a defeat as of the moment this season.

By Monday, 16 January, we’ll see if there will be shaking up of standings as the intensity are heating up in the crucial January month. Whoever survives January will have a bigger chance of taking home the silverware.
