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.

Serie A highlights here

 

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.

Bundesliga highlights here

 

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.

La Liga highlights here

 

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.

European Leagues Weekend Roundup

We now have two league champions, and basically a third and fourth in Italy and the UK.

Bayern Munich wrapped up the Bundesliga title during the weekend to join PSV in the Netherlands. The other two leagues may be wrapped up by the end of the weekend but things in La Liga the Primeira Liga and Ligue 1 are still somewhat interesting. We have some midweek games to look forward to that could change things a bit more.

 

Primeira Liga(30) and Eredivisie(Round 32)

The big game between Porto and Benfica ended in a draw but the title race is still on. Only three points separate the sides and a slip from Benfica could see it becoming a tie game. Sporting Lisbon won big over the weekend but that’s not really news.

Vitesse Arnhem and AZ Alkmaar are still fighting it out for the last European spot but nothing else changes in the Netherlands. PSV continued their winning ways while both Feyenoord and Ajax drew their games.

Ligue 1(Round 34)

Paris Saint-Germain still has a game in hand, which they play today, but they are tied on points with Lyon after their big 6-1 win over Lille. Marseille somehow holds on to a European spot despite a thrilling 3-5 loss to Lorient. Lyon and Monaco both won their games over the weekend. All that means there is still some possibility for things to change before the season ends as Monaco only hold a two-point lead over St. Etienne for the final Champions League spot. Marseille is five points behind.

Ligue 1 highlights here

 

Serie A(Round 32)

Juventus almost seem to be toying with their Serie A chasers at this point, maybe with a focus on the Champions League. A loss to Torino means they have a 14-point lead in the league. Napoli won their game while Inter beat Roma and Milan fell to Udinese. Now Roma is behind Lazio in third, and the last Champions League spot, with Napoli right behind them. Sampdoria holds unto the last European spot with a number of teams close behind including a late-surging Inter.

Serie A highlights here

 

Bundesliga(Round 30)

A 1-o win over Hertha Berlin was enough for Bayern Munich to clinch the Bundesliga title with a 15-point gap. Bayer Leverkusen drew, Schalke lost and Borussia Dortmund continued their resurgence. The top four teams are pretty much set but things are getting interesting in the race for the Europa League, as Dortmund is now within three points of grabbing a spot. Hope it happens.

Bundesliga highlights here

 

La Liga(Round 33)

There’s still little change in the top six teams in La Liga after the weekend. Barcelona’s win keeps them 2 points ahead of Real Madrid, who also won. Sevilla, Atletico Madrid and Valencia also won as well, meaning a perfect weekend for the big sides. The battle for fourth spot between Sevilla and Valencia is interesting as only two points separate the sides.

La Liga highlights here

 

Premier League(Round 34)

Chelsea moved one step closer to the title after a 0-0 draw with Arsenal and it was a pretty weak showing from the big sides this weekend. Manchester City was the only side to win while Manchester United got hammered by Everton. Tottenham and Liverpool, the best bets for the Europa League, both drew their games. Things could still change in terms of who gets what place between second and fourth but otherwise things are set.

 Premier League highlights here

European Leagues Weekend Roundup

There’s one league already decided, the Netherlands, and only two that are really in doubt, the Primeira Liga and Ligue 1.  The title races are still a bit boring as we head into the final stages.

 

 

Primeira Liga(29) and Eredivisie(Round 31)

Three points is still the difference between league leaders, Benfica, and Porto. It’s actually quite impressive that Porto is doing this while possibly setting themselves up to get into the semifinals of the Champions League. Both sides won over the weekend and so did Sporting Lisbon.

As we said above, it’s now official in the Netherlands. PSV are champions so there’s little point spending much time on this league for the duration of the season as the top three spots are pretty much set. While Feyenoord lost and Ajax tied, PSV celebrated their title with a 4-1 victory over Herenveen.

Ligue 1(Round 33)

Lille and Paris Saint-Germain are tied on points but PSG has a game in hand so they look well-placed to get the title, especially if they get knocked out of the Champions League. PSG were only side to win over the weekend as both Lyon and Monaco dropped points with ties. Marseille did what they couldn’t afford to with a loss on Friday. Marseille is now tied on points with St. Etienne for fourth and really look like dropping out of the race.

Ligue 1 highlights here

 

Serie A(Round 31)

Inter Milan and AC Milan played out a bore draw which epitomized just how far both giants have fallen. Juventus edged closer to their eventual early title celebrations with a win over Lazio but Roma couldn’t take advantage and only drew. Napoli won as well and gave themselves some room in the race for fourth place.

Serie A highlights here

 

Bundesliga(Round 29)

Bayern Munich picked up a win during the weekend to strech their lead to 12 points after Schalke held Wolfsburg to a draw. Bayer Leverkusen vaulted into familiar territory after their win while Borussia Dortmund edged closer to a still out of reach European spot. Maybe the news of Jurgen Klopp’s departure will spur the squad on to a spectacular finish. Thomas Tucchel replaces Klopp when he goes.

Bundesliga highlights here

 

La Liga(Round 32)

Things are still tight where the top five teams in La Liga are concerned but there are a couple of groups. Both Barcelona and Real Madrid won their games with Barcelona retaining their two-point lead while Madrid stayed seven points ahead of Atletico Madrid. Six points separate Atletico, who won over the weekend, and fifth-placed Sevilla who tied their game while Valencia lost to Barcelona.

La Liga highlights here

 

Premier League(Round 33)

While Liverpool and Arsenal had a weekend of with FA cup duties, the rest of the big boys were enduring all sorts of different fortunes. Chelsea beat Manchester United to put one hand on the trophy and give Arsenal some breathing room, if they decide to take advantage of it. Manchester City and Tottenham both got back to winning way but not too much change in the league. Still some big games to come so there will be lots to talk about.

European Leagues Weekend Roundup

It just gets more and more fun as we head into the last stages of all our big leagues. There were some eyebrow raising results this weekend which ended the hopes of some teams and raised the hopes of others. The title races haven’t changed too much but the battle for European spots and relegation have definitely intensified. Looking forward to how the season ends all round.

We have some leagues playing in midweek as well so that should increase the fun. Here’s how things ended up last weekend.

 

Primeira Liga(28) and Eredivisie(Round 30)

We are edging closer and closer to the, potentially, title-deciding game between Benfica and Porto. Both sides won over the weekend, as did Sporting Lisbon, so things remain as is.

The title race has long been wrapped up in the Netherlands but things are interesting in the European race. Ajax and PSV won while Feyenoord drew and nothing changed between the top three. Only  five points separate fourth place from seventh and there’s likely to be some shuffling as we head into the final few games.

Ligue 1(Round 32)

Marseille is falling down the rabbit-hole pretty fast after another loss this weekend. They now sit in fourth place and have both St. Etienne and Bordeaux behind in touching distance. Another season without Europe would be highly disappointing. Paris Saint-Germain and Lyon didn’t play so PSG retained its one point lead, while Monaco and Lille both won. We’re going to get into the game in hand situation after Lyon joins the rest of league in playing game 32 while PSG turn their thoughts to the Champions League. That should make things a bit more interesting. Can PSG make it three in a row and progress in Europe?

Ligue 1 highlights here

 

Serie A(Round 30)

Juventus lost, to Parma, but still have a 12 point lead in the league. What’s more interesting is Roma’s draw with Torino seeing them drop out of the top two and be replaced by rival, Lazio. Napoli and Inter Milan, surprisingly, won while AC Milan drew. There’s a seven point gap between Champions League and the Europa League but Napoli has to fight off Sampdoria and Fiorentina if they want to play in Europe at all next season.

Serie A highlights here

 

Bundesliga(Round 28)

It’s sad to see Borussia Dortmund floundering so after their recent resurgence as the suffered yet another loss. No bumblebees in Europe next season it seems. Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen both won and Schalke drew their games over the weekend. Again, the gap between Champions League and Europa League is significant with Bayer Leverkusen 10 points ahead of Schalke in fifth. It will be interesting to see how Wolfsburg and Borussia Mochengladbach fare in the Champions League next season.

Bundesliga highlights here

 

La Liga(Rounds 30 & 31)

After two rounds in a week Barcelona only hold a two point lead over Real Madrid as opposed to four. All the big teams except Valencia won during the week but there wasn’t too much reshuffling of the pack.

Barcelona and Sevilla played out a 2-2 draw during the weekend and Atletico Madrid drew as well. Valencia and Real Madrid were the only big boys to win. It’s now pretty much a two-horse race between Barcelona and Real Madrid with Atletico Madrid fighting off Valencia and Sevilla for the third automatic Champions League spot. That should be interesting.

La Liga highlights here

 

Premier League(Round 32)

Chelsea still has a game in hand and a seven point lead after their win over QPR. Arsenal and Liverpool both won while Tottenham lost. Manchester United beat Manchester City in the Manchester Derby to put the former champions in fourth place.(Cue smirks from Arsenal fans) There are still some big games to come, most notably Chelsea versus Arsenal so there’s still lots of entertainment in store.

European Leagues Weekend Roundup

It just gets more and more fun as we head into the last stages of all our big leagues. There were some eyebrow raising results this weekend which ended the hopes of some teams and raised the hopes of others. The title races haven’t changed too much but the battle for European spots and relegation have definitely intensified. Looking forward to how the season ends all round.

We have some leagues playing in midweek as well so that should increase the fun. Here’s how things ended up last weekend.

 

Primeira Liga(27) and Eredivisie(Round 29)

It’s still a three-point gap between Benfica and Porto as we draw closer to that all-important game between the two. Both sides won over the weekend while Sporting Lisbon was held to a draw.

Ajax were held to a draw over the weekend, meaning PSV Eindhoven’s big 5-0 win over FC Twente means they extend their lead to 10 points. Feyenoord also picked up a win to solidify third spot and a place in Europe next season.

Ligue 1(Round 31)

Well, it looks like money can buy you titles. Paris Saint-Germain has underperformed for much of the season but their stars came up big in the win versus Marseille this weekend. That keeps them one point ahead of a Lyon side that also won over the weekend. Marseille’s loss means they could tumble even further down the standings after today. Monaco tied against St. Etienne but still have a game in hand, which they play today, and three points means they’ll be level on points with Marseille.

Ligue 1 highlights here

 

Serie A(Round 29)

There’s no point talking about first place in Serie A anymore though I guess we have to mention that Juventus won again, of course. The race for European spots holds the most interest as in most leagues.  Roma beat Napoli in the big game of the weekend to stay one point ahead of Lazio. That loss, plus other results, means Napoli is now out of the European spots altogether and sit in sixth. AC Milan won over the weekend and Inter Milan tied.

Serie A highlights here

 

Bundesliga(Round 27)

Borussia Dortmund in Europe next season is still a possibility but it is becoming an extremely slim prospect. Dortmund lost to Bayern Munich while few other results went their way. Schalke tied with Augsburg to pretty much remain as they were and Bayer Leverkusen picked up a big win over Hamburg to solidify their European spot.

Bundesliga highlights here

 

La Liga(Round 29)

Yes, Real Madrid scored 9 goals in their win over Granada but it’s still only three points. Barcelona won a hard-fought game against Celta Vigo to retain their four point lead. The top six pretty much remain as they were after Valencia and Villarreal tied their game while Atletico Madrid and Sevilla won. There’s midweek games here as well with Valencia’s trip to Athletic Bilbao looking interesting.

La Liga highlights here

 

Premier League(Round 30)

Arsenal is officially in second place. Let that sink in for a moment. Their convincing victory over Liverpool leaves the Reds pretty much out of the Champions League race and staring at the Europa League. Manchester United won as well while Manchester City lost to Crystal Palace. Tottenham also dropped points with a draw. Chelsea are still huffing and puffing across the finish line with another win but with a game in hand they could extend their lead to 10 points.

 Premier League highlights here

European Leagues Weekend Roundup

The first international break of the year is now in effect and it’ll be interesting to see how that affects certain teams when leagues restart.

There weren’t many changes across our leagues this weekend but there were some interesting results. Let’s take a look.

 

Primeira Liga(26) and Eredivisie(Round 28)

The upcoming game between Porto and Benfica is now a definite title-defining clash. Benfica lost over the weekend and Porto drew, making the gap now three points between the two sides. Sporting Lisbon won their game over the weekend.

And the lead is now eight! Still don’t see anything but a PSV Eindhoven title in the offing but Ajax will have Feyenoord to thank for beating the leaders. Ajax won their game as well so they can hold some sort of hope.

 

Ligue 1(Round 30)

And just like that the big boys are leading down the stretch. Laurent Blanc is pretty much securing his contract with these last couple results. He beat Chelsea and now, finally, Paris Saint-Germain lead the league after a win over Lorient. Lyon are one point behind after their loss to Nice while Marseille is two points behind the leaders after their win. Monaco also won over the weekend while Lille lost. Of course, Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain play next week. Expect things to change.

Ligue 1 highlights here

 

Serie A(Round 28)

Juventus continue to stroll along with another win so, again, we look to the European race. Roma won over the weekend while Napoli drew, AC Milan won and Inter lost. Lazio has is now in third, one point behind Roma, and Napoli has dropped to fifth. So much for that resurgence. Sampdoria sits in fourth.

Serie A highlights here

 

Bundesliga(Round 26)

Bayern Munich only have a 10-point lead now after a surprising loss to Borussia Mochengladbach. Borussia Dortmund picked up another win while Bayer Leverkusen beat Schalke when the other big boys met. Dortmund is five points away from a Europa League spot and 12 away from the Champions League. We’ll see what happens there.

Bundesliga highlights here

 

La Liga(Round 28)

“El Clasico” was a fantastic game and Barcelona’s win over Real Madrid means they now have a four-point lead in the league. Sevilla, Valencia and Atletico Madrid all won so it was a good weekend for the big boys. Valencia still edge Atletico Madrid for the final automatic Champions League spot by one point.

La Liga highlights here

 

Premier League(Round 30)

Chelsea still have a game in hand, and a six-point lead, after a close win over Hull City. Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United all won to keep things looking really interesting in the European race. United beat Liverpool in pretty convincing fashion and may well damage the hopes of some of their fellow competitors if they continue on this form.

 Premier League highlights here

European Leagues Weekend Roundup

There were some big results across European Leagues this weekend and it’s no surprise that things are heating up as we get closer to the business end of the season.

The title race in France still stands out among all our leagues but things are still tight in Portugal and Spain. Should be an interesting end to the season. Let’s see what happened over the weekend.

 

Primeira Liga(25) and Eredivisie(Round 26)

Still not many changes to talk about in Portugal as Benfica, Porto and Sporting Lisbon all won. Benfica still hold a four point lead over their big rivals, Porto, but we are getting closer to what could be a title-deciding game between the two.

PSV Eindhoven still has an 11 point lead in the league as they Ajax and Feyenoord all won over the weekend.(Same sentence as last week) The race for the last European spot is an interesting battle between AZ Alkmaar, Vitesse Arnhem(Chelsea 2.0), PEC Zwolle and Herenveen though.

 

Ligue 1(Round 29)

So I realize last week that I presented the big game as Paris Saint-Germain vs. Lyon when it was actually Marseille vs. Lyon. Not sure what happened there. It was a pretty entertaining game and either side could have won but it was tie in the end. PSG lost but still kept second place and but now Marseille have to watch out for Monaco below them in fourth with a game in hand. The bane of Arsenal won over the weekend, as did Lille. Things still looking tight in France

Ligue 1 highlights here

 

Serie A(Round 27)

Since the title race is now done and dusted in the Serie A, things in the race for Europe have heated up. Five points now separate second place Roma from sixth place Sampdoria. Roma lost, to Sampdoria, and were gladly joined by AC Milan and Napoli. Inter Milan tied their game while Juventus won.

Serie A highlights here

 

Bundesliga(Round 25)

Things are pretty similar in Germany. Ten points separate third from eighth and, while that may seem a lot, things can change at any minute. Plus there’s still the possibility of a Borussia Dortmund resurgence even if they did falter with a draw. Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen both won while Schalke drew their game.

Bundesliga highlights here

 

La Liga(Round 27)

In Spain, both the title race and European race offer some intrigue. “El Clasico” is this weekend and that game will have a big impact on the title. Barcelona and Real Madrid won to retain first and second place but Atletico Madrid dropped out of third after a tie and Valencia’s win. Sevilla also won over the weekend so it remains to be seen who will end up where in the European spots. Villarreal is still in the mix and Malaga has an outside chance.

La Liga highlights here

 

Premier League(Round 29)

Aand just like that, the Premier League does it again. Arsenal and second place seems weird so close together in a sentence but that’s where we’re headed after their win and Manchester City’s loss to Burnley. Chelsea drew to pick up a six point lead with one game in hand while Manchester United brought back the old times by smashing Tottenham. Liverpool won as well so things are still very much up in the air heading into the final part of the season.

 Premier League highlights here

European Leagues Weekend Roundup

It’s a bit later than usual but let’s take a look at what’s gone on with these leagues over the weekend.

Title races in Spain and France heat up just a bit more while things continue to bore in Italy, England, Germany and the Netherlands. Things are still sort of up in the air in Portugal.

 

Primeira Liga(24) and Eredivisie(Round 26)

There was no change in Portugal with all the big three boys Porto, Benfica and Sporting Lisbon, winning. Benfica still holds a four point lead over Porto but things could change when the duo meet later in the season. Porto’s extended continental participation may affect them though.

PSV Eindhoven still has an 11 point lead in the league as they Ajax and Feyenoord all won over the weekend. Not much to talk about there.

 

Ligue 1(Round 28)

The title race in Ligue 1 is well worth talking about though. There was no change at the top this weekend as all the big teams won this past weekend, Lyon, PSG, Marseille, Monaco and Lille. Four points separate first place from third. Next weekend though, the top two, Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain, play each other. That should be fun.

Ligue 1 highlights here

 

Serie A(Round 26)

Juventus has now opened up an 11 point lead in the Serie A so that’s officially that in Italy. They won over the weekend while everybody decided to take a weekend off. Roma drew as did AC Milan, unsurprisingly, and Napoli met Inter in another draw. Will things change next season?

Serie A highlights here

 

Bundesliga(Round 24)

Bayern Munich regained their 11 point lead in the league, not that it mattered much, with a win. Borussia Dortmund’s recent resurgence hit a small wall in the form of a draw with Hamburg. Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke both won and both will now be looking to lock up the Champions League places though Borussia Mochengladbach and Augsburg FC may still have something to say about that.

Bundesliga highlights here

 

La Liga(Round 26)

Barcelona jumped back to the top of the table after their mauling of Rayo Vallecano and Real Madrid’s loss to Athletic Bilbao. The upcoming “El Clasico” should be fun. Atletico Madrid and Valencia tied in the big game of the weekend, allowing Sevilla to close the gap a little with their three points.

La Liga highlights here

 

Premier League(Round 28)

Chelsea still has a game in hand and a five point lead so things are looking good. They won in what was a midweek game thanks to the FA Cup but so did everybody else. Arsenal, Manchester United, Tottenham, Manchester City and Liverpool all won too. Tottenham then won their makeup game over weekend. So now we have the big six teams in the top six spots. Just a matter of who ends up in positions 3-6 now.

 Premier League highlights here

European Leagues Weekend Roundup

Some changes in leagues throughout the weeks

Let’s take a look at what’s gone on with these leagues over the weekend.

Primeira Liga(23) and Eredivisie(Round 25)

Porto beat Sporting Lisbon to keep the pressure on Benfica, who picked up a big 6-0 win of their own. Four points is still the gap between the sides and it really will come down to the meeting between these sides later in the season.

Ajax beat PSV Eindhoven to close the gap in the league to a measly 11 points. Feyenoord’s draw saw them drop to fourth as AZ Alkmaar has now jumped into third place. The league is still PSV’s barring some sort of miracle

 

Ligue 1(Round 27)

The race in Ligue one continues to be an interesting one. Lyon still holds on to slim one-point lead after their loss to Lille. Paris Saint-Germain couldn’t make the most of that and were to a draw by Monaco(maybe Arsenal shouldn’t feel so bad now.) Marseille continues to fall bit by bit with another loss, this time to SM Caen. They’re still only four points off the pace though.

Ligue 1 highlights here

 

Serie A(Round 25)

The current state of affairs at Parma is the biggest news for  the Serie A recently as the title race is just about wrapped up now. Juventus and Roma drew so the Turin side has a nine-point lead. AC Milan continued to thrill with a draw against Chievo while both Inter and Napoli lost.

Serie A highlights here

 

Bundesliga(Round 24)

Bayern Munich continues to roll along towards another Bundesliga title, with another win. Wolfsburg continues to excite in their chase with a thrilling 5-3 comeback victory over Werder Bremen. The big story though is Borussia Dortmund’s ongoing rise, as they got a big victory over rivals, Schalke. Bayer Leverkusen also got a win.

Bundesliga highlights here

 

La Liga(Round 25)

It’s becoming a bit more of a two-horse race in La Liga, with Real Madrid and Barcelona pulling ahead of the pack a little. Barcelona is two points behind Madrid and five points ahead of Atletico Madrid after they defeated Granada and Madrid were held to a draw by a well-organized Villareal side. Valencia won their game to get within a point of Atletico Madrid after the champions tied with Sevilla.

La Liga highlights here

 

Premier League(Round 27)

Chelsea got two trophies on one day thanks to their Capital One Cup victory over Tottenham and Liverpool’s victory over Manchester City. Manchester United and Arsenal won as well, meaning pretty much all the “Big Six” teams are now in the top six. Tottenham could vault over Southampton should they win their makeup game, and Chelsea could open up an eight point lead.

 Premier League highlights here

European Leagues Weekend Roundup

We’re getting closer and closer to the business end of the season and, as usual, things are always changing in each league. Title races in a few leagues have flicked from total domination to interesting and there’s been lots of movement in the Champions League races and relegation battles as well.

Let’s take a look at what’s gone on with these leagues over the weekend.

Primeira Liga(22) and Eredivisie(Round 24)

Benfica continues to hold a four point lead in Portugal but one wonders how long that can last. They’ll be hoping that Sporting Lisbon and Porto drop points in their game next weekend. All these teams won over the weekend and the title-decider could well be the April game between Porto and Benfica.

Things aren’t so difficult in the Netherlands. PSV now holds a comfortable 14 point lead and have been spotless at home with 12 wins out of 12. Ajax are third with Feyenoord tied for third. The gap increased from 12 as Ajax drew while Feyenoord and PSV both won over the weekend.

 

Ligue 1(Round 26)

Marseille has now fallen behind in what is an extremely tight Ligue 1 race. They dropped points with a loss over the weekend while both Paris Saint-Germain and Lyon won. Monaco won as well while Lille lost. Lyon lead PSG by two points and the gap between them and third-place Marseille is four. Things will get tough for No. 1 and 2 though as they face tough away visits to Lille and Monaco.

Ligue 1 highlights here

 

Serie A(Round 24)

Things must be getting a bit tense for Roma. They continue to lose ground to Juventus after another tie, while Napoli’s win ensures they’ve closed the gap to three points. Juventus’ win means the lead is now nine points while Inter Milan and AC Milan continued their yo-yoing with victories.

Serie A highlights here

 

Bundesliga(Round 22)

Borussia Dortmund’s continued rise is good to see after they overcame Stuttgart with a 3-2 victory. Maybe that was all part of the plan. Bayern Munich continues to stroll along with Wolfsburg keeping up in hopes of chipping into that eight point lead. Schalke drew during the weekend, as did Bayer Leverkusen, but both sides are still well-placed for Champions League spots.

Bundesliga highlights here

 

La Liga(Round 24)

Just when it seems things got tight again in La Liga the gap reopened. Real Madrid capitalized on Barcelona’s loss with a win of their own to end the weekend with a four-point lead. Atletico Madrid and Valencia also won while Sevilla lost in a thriller to Real Sociedad. Still betting on Sevilla and Valencia to round out the top five when the season is done.

La Liga highlights here

 

Premier League(Round 26)

Heady days in London for one team. Arsenal’s win over Crystal Palace means they are now in third while Tottenham drew, Manchester United lost and Liverpool’s win only just brings them back into the race. And let’s not forget Southampton’s in the mix too. Things got interesting at the top as well with Chelsea dropping points in a draw and Manchester City scoring a big win to close the gap to five.
