Premier League. Saints condemn sorry Villa to relegation with a routine 4-2 win but Europe is slipping away from them unless they can win all their last games. Tough ! Saturdays other wins for City and resurgent Chelsea. Brill result at Liverpool as Newcastle come from 2-0 down to secure an unlikely draw. Well done Rafa. Sunday sees Mayhem as Leicester win without Vardy, thrashing Swansea 4-0 and Sunderland hold Arsenal to 0-0 draw. AND could have nicked it. SO it was all down to Spurs to beat lowly West Brom for an easy victory to force Leicester to win 2 of last 3 games to secure the title BUT this is football as we know and the Baggies confounded everybody by getting an unlikely draw at White Hart Lane on Monday night. So if Leicester can win at Utd ( not unthinkable, they are top you know !) then the the title is theirs. They just need 3 points to clinch it. Still a few twists in the tail.
Italy. Juve's win in Florence not quite enough to win the Scudetto outright UNLESS Roma could beat Napoli. Blimey what a match as Roma get very late winner to scupper Napoli's chance. Nainggolan's brill 89th min curler was the nail in Napoli's coffin and off the bench Totti hand in the build up was crucial. How fantastic has the mercurial Francesco been in the last 4 games ? ? ? ? Frosinone lose at home to fellow strugglers Palermo and Verona beat Milan to put off the inevitable for another week. Carpi win again and get a 3 point cushion over the bottom three. Doesn't look good for my nearby Serie A team in Italy now....
Spain. Barca's 6-0 win over Gigon gives them a 30 goal diff advantage over Atletico as they share the same points. With Real a point behind. Tight.......
Germany. Frankfurt lie perilously 2nd from bottom but their win over nearby high flying Mainz must give them confidence. Bayern Dortmund and Leverkussen all win.
France. Lyon's win and Monaco's draw gives Lyon 2nd spot on G Diff as PSG steam-roller on.
Holland. Is Ajax's draw vs Utrecht going to prove costly. They are just ahead of Eindhoven on G Diff now. Tasty.
Great draw for City in C League. Hart's saves save
the day in 0-0 draw vs Real. Can they score away at the Bernabeu ????
Liverpool lose away at Villareal to late goal in 1st leg of Europa league semi-final. Have it to do it at Anfield now.
It's getting really close to the sharp end now and the weekends games stretch on for 4-5 days as games are crammed in to catch up after cup games. Suddenly the next batch of games are on the doorstep. DON'T hold your breath peeps ! ! !
