There are a lot of ways to judge who the best teams in the world are currently; in this list I am going to judge teams on the competitions they are in and how they are doing in those competitions, I will also judge the teams based on the star players they have. Each team is most likely in three main competitions of the year: their countries league, their countries league cup, and a European cup.
10. Manchester City
Manchester City is a club based in England and they are top contenders for the English league and the league cup almost every season. This season Manchester City is part of the English league, the FA Cup, which is the English league cup, and the Champions League – the best European cup to be in. This year, Manchester City made it into the final sixteen of the Champions League and barely lost; Manchester City is currently fourth place in the English league, and in the semi finals of the FA Cup. Out of the three competitions they are in, Manchester City is on the way to winning just one of them; this is not their most successful season but they are still one of the top teams in the world.
9. Atletico Madrid
Atletico Madrid is a club from Spain with many talented players. In the Spanish league the two main teams are Barcelona and Real Madrid, however, Atletico Madrid is constantly the best team in the league to challenge the two top teams. Currently Atletico Madrid is third in La Liga, the Spanish league; in the Copa Del Rey, the Spanish league cup, Atletico Madrid made it to the semi finals and was knocked out by Barcelona.

This is not Atletico Madrid’s most successful year, but they can still win The Champions League and maybe even the Spanish League.
8. Tottenham Hotspur

However, they are having a lot of success in England, Spurs are currently second place in the league and in the semi finals of the league cup; Tottenham are definitely on their way to a successful season if they can keep winning games.
