Top 5 European clubs that won the most games in 2022

Dominance without a result is meaningless in football. Only teams that are able to make the most of opportunities will win titles and trophies. Therefore, matches won are the most reliable metric for assessing a team’s quality.

In today’s list, we’ll look at five teams that held their own in 2022 and achieved numerous favorable outcomes. The top five European teams that won the most games across all competitions in 2022 are as follows:
