Congratulations to Adelaide United! They’ve been brilliant all season and it definitely showed against a very strong Western Sydney Wanderers in the final.
Leicester City’s story this season has been quiet remarkable. To have risen from the Championship, surviving relegation then winning the title in England’s top tier for the first time in their 132 year history. The Foxes are this years English Premier League champions.
The 2nd of May will forever be the day of The Foxes.
In the Championship, Burnley have secured promotion. Which brings us to a fairy tale match up to follow them in second, between Middlesbrough and Brighton, both tied on points- a must watch.
In La Liga, with only two games remaining, it is going to be very tense. Barcelona and Atletico are both tied with only the Catalan’s ridiculous goal difference separating the two. Real Madrid, who will now face Atletico in the Champions League final, must hope for a slip up from both sides, as they trail just 1 point behind. Each side will be playing at the same time, as the Catalans face off against Espanyol, the Rojiblancos play Levante, and Los Blancos play against Valencia who definitely have the talent to cause an upset.
