Title-Time in Europe’s Top 5 Leagues

With the season approaching its end, the title races in the Top-5 Leagues are heating up.

The most spectacular promises to be in England. Ahead of Arsenal’s encounter with Sheffield

United on Monday, both Liverpool and Manchester City won this matchday’s games in

spectacular fashion. Liverpool beat Nottingham Forest thanks to a dramatic 99th minute

buzzer-beater by Darwin Nunez and City overturned a one-goal deficit in the Manchester

Derby to win 3-1. Should Arsenal manage, as expected, to beat Sheffield United who sit

bottom of the league with a meagre 13 points, it would set up a thrilling title race. The

upcoming fixture Manchester City against Carabao-Cup winners Liverpool could prove


La Liga also promises a dramatic title race with Girona having been only two points behind

Real Madrid before a 4-0 thumping at the hand of Los Blancos. Barcelona is struggling and

far behind Real Madrid with their chances of defending the title being very slim.

Barcelona’s coach Xavi Hernandez has announced his departure from the club after the

season. Real Madrid are having a very good season so far especially thanks to Vinicius

Junior and English superstar Jude Bellingham. Girona in consideration of their resources are having a fantastic campaign as well. However, it seems even their fairytale will not be able to overturn a seven-point deficit.

Meanwhile in Germany, Bayern Munich are under threat of losing the Bundesliga title for the first time since 2012 with Bayern Leverkusen ten points ahead. Bayern Munich whose coach

Thomas Tuchel will leave at the end of the season have only won one of their last four

games and lost two. Meanwhile, Leverkusen has beaten Bayern’s record of going unbeaten

for 32 games in all competitions, extending it to 34 with close-fought wins against

relegation-threatened Mainz (2-1) and Köln (2-0). With 10 games to go, Xabi Alonso’s

Leverkusen are likely to win their first ever Bundesliga crown.

Seria A’s top spot seems firmly in Inter Milan’s grasp. They have been one of the standout-

sides in Europe this season and look comfortable to win the league. Lautaro Martinez, Inter’s

world class world-cup winning striker, is having an exceptional season with 23 goals in only

24 games. Juventus appeared to be fierce competitors for the title, until a 1-0 defeat to rivals

Inter sent them crashing out to now 12 points behind a dominant Inter side.

Paris Saint Germain are cruising to their twelfth Ligue 1 in fourteen years. With Kylian

Mbappe in sizzling form, a strong PSG-side look to win the league for a third consecutive

season. Stade Brest are unlikely to overhaul a nine-point deficit, meaning PSG can focus on

the Champions League tie against Real Sociedad on Tuesday. PSG have only lost one league-

game this campaign, a 3-2 defeat to OGC Nice on match day five. This has gone fairly

unnoticed, however, with the greatest attention on Kylian Mbappe’s future. Rumours have

circulated about a transfer to Real Madrid for years, and his move to the Spanish capital

seems imminent.
