As the season winds down, we take a look at how the EPL, La Liga, Ligue 1, Bundesliga and Serie A stands and those probably to be the winner.

English Premier League

Manchester City will start the day a point ahead of Liverpool following their nervy win over Leicester.

City face Brighton at the Amex Stadium with the Seagulls already assured of their Premier League safety, while Liverpool host Wolves.

City knows a win will make them champions but any-slip up and a Liverpool win at Anfield would take the title to the red half of Merseyside.

There is still a very slim chance of the two teams finishing on the same points, goal difference and goals scored, which would mean a playoff to decide the destination of the title.

Liverpool would need to draw 4-4 with Wolves and Brighton need to beat City 4-0. It would be a fitting end.

Spanish La Liga

Barcelona next match is against Getafe. The Catalonia side had already been crowned champion with 83 points and leading second-place Atletico Madrid with 9 points and third place Real Madrid with 15 points.

The Spanish giant must pick themselves up after their embarrassing display against Liverpool at Anfield for their penultimate LaLiga game of the season as the Spanish champions host Getafe in what could be an anti-climactic atmosphere at Camp Nou.
