Weekend Football Review

Winners and losers!

FA Cup Final 

Man City 6 vs. 0 Watford

City ended the season with a domestic treble something that has never been accomplished before as they thrashed Watford at Wembley. David Silva, and Jesus scored in the first half while, De Bruyne and Jesus added two more in the 2nd before Sterling added another two in the final 10 minutes. To say that Watford have finished poorly in the final stage of the season is an understatement but City were not even at their best. City might be the best English team in history at the moment but the fact that everyone’s reaction is merely a shoulder shrug seems to have frustrated Pep and the players. 

La Liga MW 38

Atletico drew 2-2 with Levante, Valencia beat Valladolid 0-2, Sevilla beat Bilbao 2-0, Real Madrid lost to Betis 0-2, and Barcelona drew with Eibar 2-2. The La Liga season came to an end with Barcelona having sealed it a couple weeks back. Atletico went winless in their last three games but sealed 2nd, Real lost their last two but came 3rd, and Valencia edged out the rest to finish 4th. Getafe, and Sevilla will feature in the Europa League. 

Serie MW 37

Roma drew with Sassuolo 0-0, Empoli beat Torino 4-1, Milan beat Frosinone 2-0, Juventus drew with Atalanta 1-1, Napoli beat Inter 4-1, and Lazio drew 3-3 with Bologna. The race for the top four is still on a knifes edge with Atalanta, and Inter, 3rd and 4th respectively. The teams are both on 66 points while Milan are a point behind in 5th. Roma are 6th and 3 points behind. Roma’s goal difference might see them out of the race with the realistic options being Atalanta, Inter, and Milan. 

Bundesliga MW 34

Leverkusen thrashed Berlin 1-5, Dortmund beat Monchengladbach 0-2, Mainz beat Hoffenheim 4-2, Werder Bremen beat Leipzig 2-1, Stuttgart drew with Schalke, and Bayern beat Frankfurt 5-1. Bayern had to lose for Dortmund to win but they did not and Bayern’s great 2nd half season and Dortmund’s poor one resulted in Bayern clinching a 7th straight Bundesliga title. Dortmund, Leipzig, and Leverkusen finished in the top four and so qualify for next seasons Champions League. Monchengladbach, and Wolfsburg will feature in the Europa League.

Ligue MW 37

Marseille beat Toulouse 2-5, Monaco beat Amiens 2-0, Lille beat Angers 5-0, PSG beat Dijon 4-0, and Lyon beat Caen 4-0. With the top four settled, Monaco now just need a point to survive relegation.
