Liverpool will play German Bundesliga champion Hamburg in the first round. The match will be held on August 17, 1980. This is where you can see how much the German league has improved since its inception in 1963. There were only 18 teams back then. Now there are 24. So it's very competitive.
The Russian league is also quite interesting. It's called Top League for short. It started in 1992 when 16 clubs divided into two groups competed with each other during the season. The group winners from both groups go through to a final stage called the Supercup. This is where they meet in one game at the end of the season to decide who wins the title. Chelsea, Everton, Leeds United, Manchester United, Nottingham Forest, Norwich City, Sheffield Wednesday, Southampton, Stoke City, and Tottenham Hotspur are the current champions.
There is no real prize money but some clubs do benefit from having a successful team because they make enough money to buy new players. For example, Liverpool bought John Barnes, Kenny Dalglish, and Graeme Souness in this season.
Liverpool The 1979–80 season was the Football League's 81st full season. Liverpool regained their league title trophy after repelling a desperate attack from Manchester United's Dave Sexton. This was also the first year that the Premier League was formed; it replaced the old First Division as England's top flight.
Huddersfield Town were the other team who finished above Liverpool. The Terriers were unable to defend their championship because they only had one season left in the Football League but they did win the FA Cup. This was their first major honour since 1914 when they also won the FA Cup. Wimbledon were the third club to be crowned champions as they overcame Millwall in the final match of the season.
The top three teams from 1978–79 were Liverpool, Arsenal and Leeds United. However, due to financial problems at Leeds, they were relegated back to the Second Division. This was the beginning of an era for Liverpool where they would never be relegated from the Premier League again. Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur joined the league in 1977 and 1980 respectively; both these clubs have still never been relegated.
In Europe, Liverpool played a total of 44 matches in 1979–80. They finished first in the League Championship with 88 points, 12 more than second-placed Arsenal.
Liverpool Seasonal Diary Liverpool wins the Charity Shield by defeating FA Cup holders Arsenal 3-1 at Wembley Stadium on August 11, 1979. The match was held to raise money for Amnesty International. In the same week that this game was played, another one was held at Maine Road, Manchester. This was to raise money for the Red Cross War Memorials Project. The winners would then go on to play the previous season's champions in the annual Premiership Cup final. So, Liverpool won both games.
This was a unique situation because both clubs were still in existence today would not happen again. After winning the Premiership title, Liverpool withdrew from the League because they wanted to focus all their energy on playing in the European Cup. However, before they left the League they arranged a series of matches against First Division teams to determine who would take over as top dogs - Nottingham Forest or Wolverhampton Wanderers. These matches are known as the "Play-Off" series and they took place in September 1979. At the end of the series, Liverpool won all three games (including the Charity Shield) so they were given special permission by the other clubs to remain in the top flight.
After winning the Charity Shield, Liverpool went on to lose only one game all season and they finished with a record of 94 points.

The 1980 Football League Cup Final was the final match of the 1979-80 Football League Cup, the Football League Cup's 20th season, a football competition for the Football League's 92 clubs. The match took place on March 15, 1980, at Wembley Stadium, and was contested by League Cup holders and European winners Nottingham Forest...
Nottingham Forest won the match 3-1, with three goals from John Robertson, to claim their first trophy in six years.
The tournament had started out in basically the same format as the UEFA Champions League, with all ties being played over two legs, with the team that scored more goals winning both matches and becoming the "home" team for the next round... However, unlike its European equivalent, the English league season was long enough that by the time these second-leg games were played there was usually only one week left until the end of the season. So to avoid playing important matches during critical periods in the campaign, the Football League introduced a third game if the scores after two matches were still level. If this third game was also tied after 90 minutes then a penalty shoot-out would be used to determine a winner.
The first ever Football League Cup match was played on August 25, 1978, and ended in a 1-1 draw between Fourth Division Southampton and Northampton Town. The following year's tournament began on August 24, when Millwall hosted Bury in the first round...
