A hot weekend in Europe

2021-05-08T18:09:46.665Z

As the end of the championships approaches, many issues still remain unresolved across Europe. This football weekend offers tantalizing posters on paper and crucial for the rest of the season. 



Lens-Lille 

This Friday, the LOSC moves on the lawn of Lens.

Double-stakes match because LOSC is fighting with PSG for the title of champion of France.

Lille are one point ahead of the Parisians who will play in Rennes on Sunday.

On the Lens side, the stakes are high.

The Sangs et Or, 5th, can put pressure on OM and Rennes, RCL's competitors in the race for Europe. 

Manchester City-Chelsea

Like a dress rehearsal before May 29.

Qualified this week for the final of the Champions League, Manchester City and Chelsea face each other this Saturday (6.15 p.m.) at the Etihad Stadium.

In case of victory, the Citizens would be crowned champions of England.

4th, the Blues have not yet secured their place in the Champions League next season and are still under threat from West Ham, 5th.

The Hammers will host Everton this Sunday. 

Barcelona-Atlético Madrid

The title match.

Leader since the start of the season, Atlético Madrid has seen its lead melt through the season.

The Colchoneros are only two points ahead of Real and FC Barcelona.

This clash between the Catalans and the Madrilenians (Saturday 4:15 p.m.) is therefore crucial.

Defeat forbidden for Diego Simeone's men.

Barça must win so as not to compromise its chances of titles. 

Real Madrid-Sevilla FC

This Sunday 9:00 p.m., another summit shock is on display in Spain.

Dauphin of Atlético and with two points behind his rival from Madrid, Zidane's men are forced to win against the Andalusians this Sunday.

The Sevilla players toasted a precious joker Monday by losing against Bilbao at home (0-1).

If the title seems complicated to fetch, the Blanquirrojos have the opportunity to get closer to Real and why not hope for better than this current 4th place in the standings. 

Juventus-AC Milan 

Inter Milan have already validated their league title last week.

On the other hand, the fight for the Champions League is fierce in Italy.

Atalanta, Juventus, AC Milan, Napoli and Lazio are vying for the three remaining tickets to play in the Champions League next year.

3rd and 4th with the same number of points, Juventus and AC Milan (Sunday 8:45 p.m.) therefore have no room for error while Napoli and Lazio are behind and can put pressure on the Bianconeri and the Rossoneri in case of victory this Saturday in their respective matches. 

Bayern Munich-Borussia M'Gladbach

Leader with seven points ahead of their runner-up RB Leipzig, Bayern can be crowned German champions for the ninth time in a row if they win this Saturday (6.15 p.m.) against Mönchengladbach.

The men of Marco Rose 7th, are still in the race for the last European places.
