Winning can be difficult for some teams, look at the 2017 Cleveland Browns or the 2008 Detroit Lions. There are also those teams that have good seasons or win a championship once and then go through a long rebuild process. But there are some teams that have remained at the top for so long that they make winning look so easy. Here are seven teams that make winning look easy:
Barcelona has been a strong team for a while and they show no signs of slowing down. The 2008-2009 season is one of the team’s best but the club hasn’t stopped winning. Barcelona are strong contenders for the Champions League every year, the league and other competitions. This season, Neymar made a move to PSG and many of us wondered if this would be the season where things would get a little more difficult for the club. But its been the total opposite, with Barcelona qualifying for the next round of the Champions League and currently holding first place in La Liga with 16 wins, 3 draws and 0 losses.
New England Patriots
The New England Patriots worst record since Tom Brady became the starting quarterback is 9-7. The record itself tells everyone how dominating the team has been since the early 2000s. Brady has only missed two playoffs in his entire career, one of them being that 9-7 season, and the other being after he suffered an ACL injury in 2008. The 2008 season was far from bad though, the team would go on to finish with an 11-5 record, closing the season with four straight wins. The Patriots were the first 11-5 team to miss the playoffs since Denver in 1985.
Since 2001, the Patriots have appeared in seven Super Bowls, winning five of them. Tom Brady and his team have reached the AFC Championship for seven straight seasons. They will face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Will the Patriots reach another Super Bowl or will the Jaguars continue their impressive run?
Bayern Munich has 27 league titles in total and it’s looking like that number will increase in the near future. After a slow start to the season, the club is once again running away with the league title. The club is currently 13 points ahead, with one less game played.
Bayern Munich has dominated the league for years, with the only strong competition being Borussia Dortmund, which won two league titles a few years back, and Wolfsburg, which won the title in 2009. Bayern Munich has also been a strong contender in the Champions League, reaching the final three times in the last seven years.
Last year, Real Madrid made history when they became the first team to win back to back Champions League titles. The win was the third Champions League title in the last four years. The club also won the La Liga title, increasing its league title record to 33. Real Madrid have had a difficult season so far but even after their poor performances, they are still in the run for the Champions League title and Copa del Rey.
Golden State Warriors
The Golden State Warriors have reached the last three NBA Finals and won two of them. The team was already a strong contender for the title before Kevin Durant joined them in 2016. With a 37-9 record, it appears that the Warriors will easily make the NBA Playoffs and be strong contenders for the title once again.
Alabama has five National Championships in the last nine seasons. The latest win came earlier this month, when they defeated Georgia in overtime after coming back from a 13-point halftime deficit. It is Nick Saban’s sixth National Championship title, which ties Bear Bryant’s college football title record.
Germany National Team
Germany’s national team has always been a strong contender in every tournament but the the current World Cup champions recently showed that its younger players are also extremely good. In July 2017, the team won its first ever Confederations Cup by defeating Chile 1-0. The impressive part about this victory is that Germany did not have Neuer, Ozil or any of the stars we usually see at the World Cup or EURO. Germany had no problems in the World Cup qualifiers as they easily qualified for the tournament after winning all ten games.
