Lazio vs Roma headlines this weekend’s Serie A fixtures
Italian football is where it’s at for the rest of the season with nothing decided and everything still to play for.
The big five European leagues still have over a month to go before they are fully wrapped up, but most of have little to pique your interest.
The title races in England and Spain died long ago, and both La Liga and the Premier League have the Champions League spots wrapped up as well – with a 15 and 10 point gap respectively between fourth and fifth. There isn’t even a relegation battle in Spain, where Deportivo La Coruna, Malaga, and Las Palmas have been cut adrift from the rest of the pack.
Bayern Munich have already wrapped up their sixth consecutive league title, and PSG could do the same against Monaco this weekend.
There are interesting subplots, such as the relegation battle in England. In Germany Dortmund, Schalke, Eintracht Frankfurt, and RB Leipzig are battling it out for a Champions League spot in the Bundesliga. You could always see if Barcelona manage an invincible season, or if Manchester City smash all the Premier League records.
But there is no league quite like Serie A this season where almost every game remains of real consequence. There are still teams fighting to avoid relegation, an actual title race, and others vying for both European competitions next season.
You couldn’t find better evidence of that than this weekend’s fixtures.
Here are the ones to look out for:
