Weekend Football Review

The leagues come to a close.

Serie MW 38

A great end to the season in Italy as Napoli lost to Bologna 3-2, Juventus lost to Sampdoria 2-0, Roma beat Parma 2-1, Inter beat Empoli 2-1, Milan beat SPAL 2-3, and Atalanta beat Sassuolo 3-1. For a moment it looked like Milan would be heading for the Champions League but Inter, and Atalanta completed comebacks to seal 4th and 3rd in the table. Milan will be heading to Europa League, Allegri lost his last game as Juventus manager, and De Rossi leaves Roma his childhood club on a win.

Ligue MW 38

Marseille beat Montpellier 1-0, Rennes beat Lille 3-1, Lyon beat Nimes 2-3, PSG lost to Stade Reims 3-1, and Nice beat Monaco 2-0. PSG and Lille had already sealed 1st and 2nd but end their seasons with defeats. Lyon and St.Etienne will head to the Europa League with 3rd and 4th placed finishes. Monaco just about survived relegation even though they lost their last game as they finish 17th. 

DFB Pokal Final

Bayern took on RB Leipzig in the DFB Pokal final and Bayern added another trophy to their cabinet as Lewandowski scored a double and Coman added the other goal. Bayern end their season with two trophies as they continue their dominance of Germany.

Copa Del Rey Final

Barcelona took on Valencia in the Copa Del Rey final as many expected that Barcelona would add another trophy to their cabinet. Valencia though had other plans in mind and Gameiro and Rodrigo scored in the 1st half to make it 2-0 for Valencia. Messi replied back with a goal in the 73rd minute but Valencia held on for their first silverware since 2008 and a great 2nd half of the season. Barcelona and Valverde now face further questions about their future.
