With #Liverpool dropping 2 points in a 1-1 draw to Champions #Chelsea, the labored 1-2 win away at #CrystalPalace (thanks largely to the brilliance of #DeGea in goal) means that #ManchesterUnited will all but clinch that final #ChampionsLeague spot and meet their main goal for this season. For the many that dislike the Red Devils, this is bad news. Armed with the riches that will now be at their disposal this transfer season and with elite European Football back at Old Trafford, expect to see 3 or so big stars joining this side, which has been a WIP for #LVG and as labored and toothless as they’ve been at times this season, they’ve shown signs of what this team can become, given the time and new resources, especially in that rubbish defense. #ManchesterCity seem to have some mojo back after crushing now relegated #QPR 6-0, just as rumors of one #JosepGuardiola making his way to them this summer seem to have made the rounds yesterday, especially after mighty #Bayern are looking anything but, with a 4th straight loss in all competitions!
The #LaLiga crown looks like it’s headed back to the Catalan Giants after their 2-0 win over #Moyes’ #RealSociedad was followed by #RealMadrid drawing 2-2 at home to #Valencia (A missed penalty by their talisman #Ronaldo and another frustrated #Bale performance could well cost them a chance at the title and unless they win the Champions League again, trigger happy Real might well bid farewell to #Carlo and Guten Tag to #JurgenKlopp) A much deserved domestic and ChampionsLeague double looks ever so likely for #Barcelona this season!
#PSG all but retained their crown in France as #Lyon were beaten 3-0 by #Caen and the 6 point difference with 2 games left to play with a 7-goal cushion in hand means that the Parisiens will win yet another #LigueA title and will focus now on adding to their team this summer for a more concerted Champions League challenge, perhaps with #Klopp or #Pep or #Pellegrini as their coach?
#Inter may have left their resurgence a little too late as a wonderful away win at #Lazio sees them 3 points off the #Europa qualification spots. But this trend certainly looks promising for them and #Mancini might bring them back to the elites in the next year or two if finances can be made available to him.
