PSV join a select company of European top clubs. The ruling champions of the big five leagues and the Dutch league are on top of the rankings at the start of the mid-winter break for the first time in six years. Each of the clubs that have been successful in 2005 has also reached the Champions League knock out stages. Olympique Lyon, who hold a twelve-point lead, Chelsea, who are 13 points clear of Manchester United and Juventus, who have an eight-point cushion, have little to fear from the rival teams during the current campaign.Bayern Munich (six points), Barcelona (two points) and PSV (one) do not dominate their national league to that extent. Lyon, opponent of PSV in the Champions League first knock out games, are having a great spell. The French team have clinched the French title for four years in a row. It is remarkable, though, that they were only first in the league when the winter break set in on 31 December last for the first time. On the three previous occasions they dethroned winter champions AS Monaco, Olympique Marseille and RC Lens. Feyenoord are the only club in Holland that were on top of the table in winter, but did not manage to win the Dutch title. The Rotterdam outfit had taken a five-point lead at the start of the mid-winter break in the 2000-2001 season, but PSV eventually managed to clinch the title.Source: Voetbal International
