2021 marked a before and after in Liga MX and is that Mexican Soccer could see this year the end of two droughts of titles that seemed never to be broken, Cruz Azul and Atlas de Guadalajara managed to end their “curses” which will serve as an example for several teams that follow and / or overcome the red-black and blue droughts.

One of them is the Bologna Football Club of Italy, a team with a great history and tradition in Serie A, it has 7 league titles, however it was in 1964 that they managed to win their last scudetto, adding 57 years without a championship.

Tottenham Hotspur was founded in 1882 and has since become a leading team despite having only won two championships, the last of which was won in 1961, 60 years ago.

Sevilla in La Liga in Spain only has one domestic championship, won in the 1945-1946 season and since then they have not been able to repeat the feat in a contest where Barcelona, ​​Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid dominate.

Newcastle was founded in 1892 and is one of the clubs with the longest tradition in the Premier League, it had great success between 1904 and 1910, during which time they won an FA Cup and three league championships, however, their last championship was in 26/27, drought that they hope to break with their new owners, the sheiks of Saudi Arabia.

Johan Vásquez’s Genoa is one of the oldest teams in Italian football, it has won 9 Serie A championships, however, the last was in 1924, dangerously close to a century without conquering a domestic title.

Genoa is one championship away from obtaining a stella, the recognition given by the Italian Football Federation for winning 10 league titles. In fact, Genoa was Italy’s first champion, winning the first Italian First Division championship in 1898.
