European Leagues Weekend Roundup

As suspected after last week’s results, four of our seven leagues now have champions. Juventus in the Serie A and Chelsea in the Premier League have joined Bayern Munich and PSV in winning the title in their leagues. Now only La Liga, Ligue 1 and the Primeira division remain.

It doesn’t seem likely that any of those will go to the wire but they are still tight enough that things could change.

 

Primeira Liga(31) and Eredivisie(Round 32)

Benfica still holds a three-point lead in the league after a big win over the weekend, while Porto and Sporting Lisbon also won.

No games for the Eredivisie this weekend with only two more rounds remaining. Not like it matters I guess.

Ligue 1(Round 35)

Paris Saint-Germain has made up their game in hand and now officially have a three-point lead with three games remaining. All the other big boys won as well, with Lyon keeping pace and Monaco retaining their Champions League spot ahead of now fourth-placed Marseille by five points. If Marseille can beat Monaco in their next encounter then the duo could switch places before the season is done.

Serie A(Round 34)

Juventus decided now was the time to clinch their Serie A title after two rounds during the previous week. A 1-0 victory over Sampdoria was enough, while Roma won to retain second place and Napoli, despite a win, still remain in a Europa League spot. AC Milan lost to Napoli and still remain mid-table but Inter are sneaking closer to a Europa league despite a draw.

Bundesliga(Round 31)

Bayern Munich did Bayer Leverkusen a favour during the weekend by fielding a weakened side which allowed Leverkusen to win and close the gap to Borussia Mochengladbach to two points. Schalke won while Borussia Dortmund drew but the chance of getting into Europe is still their for Jurgen Klopp’s side as they are only three points off a place.

La Liga(Round 35)

Two high-scoring victories during the week keep Barcelona at the top of the table as they followed up a 6-0 win over Getafe with an 8-0 win over Cordoba. Real Madrid kept pace so the two-point lead remains but they are both pulling away from the pack. Only four points separate third place from fourth and three points separate fourth place from fifth. Atletico Madrid, Valencia and Sevilla are the teams in those positions, in that order, and that could change when Atletico Madrid play Barcelona.

Premier League(Round 35)

Three games left to go and the “best league in the World” is relegated to a relegation battle and fight for Champions League spots. We shall see what happens. Chelsea huffed and puffed to the title with a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace, Arsenal beat Hull, Manchester United lost to WBA, Liverpool beat QPR and Manchester City beat Tottenham. The top six side remain the top six sides though.
