This Much We Know

As gw 18 (the second to last gw of this season for the leagues) and the end of the world approach, let us take a brief look at what is already assured across the leagues. We’ll take a look at stuff that isn’t necessarily assured after this gw is over as we break down the fights for 1st place, CL spots, and escape from relegation across all 6 leagues.

Best of luck to those fighting to avoid relegation and to those still in contention for their league title or automatic CL berth. And now for the results that are already confirmed

La Liga:

Deportivo La Coruña and their manager, Boom Shakalaka, have automatically qualified for the Champions League. With a 6 point gap over closest rivals Real Betis (Berbilly Gilmore), they need just a single point from their remaining two fixtures to be crowned kings of Spain. However, if they fail to do so while Betis win both their remaining fixtures, Betis will be the champions because of their prior h2h result.

Down at the other end of the table, with just two fixtures remaining, Levante are anchored to the bottom and are incapable of escaping the clutches of the relegation zone. They will be spending the next season licking their wounds, and Maximerized will be on the lookout for another manager vacancy to rescue his fledgling career.

If Declan McCarthy’s Getafe lose either of their remaining matches, they will be relegated. If Atletico Madrid (JK) picks up just 1 point from their remaining two matches, Getafe will be relegated regardless as a result of having lost to Atletico previously.

EPL:

With a victory over Liverpool (Optimus) this past gameweek, EpicFail’s Aston Villa have opened an unconquerable 12 point gap over the Reds, clinching them the EPL title in the process.

With just 13 points to date, Happy Ankit’s Manchester City are without hope. They will be relegated regardless of their final two results.

West Brom (Man of Kent) will need to win both of their remaining fixtures to have even the slightest chance of avoiding relegation.

Serie A:

Catania (Djerbil) is assured relegation. Milan (Milanista) cannot drop any points if they are to have a shot at avoiding the drop. GW 18’s clash between Cagliari(Grounderz) and Juventus(Pratik) could potentially seal the 3rd spot for relegation.

At the top, Reina Man is on top with 33 points with Frazek snapping at his heels.  But only 3 points separate the first from the the fifth spot, thus making this the most open title challenge in comparison to other leagues.

Bundesliga:

Both SC Freiberg and FC Augsburg will finish their seasons without having to worry about results. They can neither be relegated nor earn automatic CL qualification.

SpVgg Greuther Furth (Valar Morghulis) is assured the bundesliga title this time around.

ROE:

With 38 points so far, PSV (FunkyAV) is assured a spot in this season’s CL. He just needs a draw to seal the championship this season as his point difference is the biggest in the league virtually assuring him the title in case of a draw.

This is another extremely tight league when it comes to relegation. The last 8 managers are separated by a mere 4 points. Any of these 8 managers who manage to win both their remaining fixtures, should avoid relegation.

Almost everyone in this league has something to fight for – avoid relegation, get a Europa league, or a CL spot. Exciting times for sure.

Ligue 1:

Nothing has been decided yet and everything is still up for grabs! This is seeming to be the most exciting league down the stretch and these final two gameweeks will be crucial for all mangers! It looks like up to 6 managers have a shot at the title (though some have better chances than others) and up to 8 managers could be competing for CL spots. Meanwhile, up to seven managers could be in the relegation fight (though some are much more likely to escape than others).

Montepellier is in the most dire situation. Sitting at the bottom of the league with 13 points, they will need to win both their remaining games and hope that all three of Nice (Lateriser), Bastia (Beavis), and Marseille (Fratboy), who are on 19 points, fail to collect a single point from their remaining games. Otherwise, Gervinho’s Forehead and his team will be relegated.

  1. I almost forgot, thanks to Berbilly Gilmore for helping me with the article!

  2. Nicely done TW and Billy

  3. Uhm, Ligue 1 is ignored? 😯

  4. Well done lads. Serie A is impossible tp predict, it is so tight!!

  5. Fair to say, Ligue 1 is simply the most exciting leaugue. So much happening.

  6. The big question though. Can I make it into Europe? I’m suspecting not.

    If I survive relegation then you can expect a press release applauding Kolarov for his excellent leadership and captaincy.

  7. If I survive relegation it will be a Wiganesque miracle

  8. Ligue1 has 3 players on 36 for the title. 1 on 34. And the relegation battle is very intense as well. I rest my case. Best League.

  9. Nothing better than the bundesliga dogfight

  10. Going into the final week, a total of nine teams, yes nine, could win the Serie A, with myself, Forca and Frazek all tied on 33 at the top of the table and another six with 30 to 32 points.

    However, the dream may be over for the Pepe Reina’s Flying Donkeys as they face the long standing league leaders Atalanta, managed by MJ6987, who currently find themselves in 5th on 32 points.

  11. Here’s to Midtable obscurity!
