🇪🇸 Osasuna ( 1 ) – ( 1 ) Villarreal (spanish la liga):
Villarreal came from a goal down to earn a point at Osasuna in their final game of the season, but Sorloth couldn’t expand on his goal tally to finish the season as top scorer.

🇮🇹 Empoli ( 2 ) – ( 1 ) Roma (italian serie a):
Relegation-zoned Empoli picked up an unlikely win against Roma, a side that had beaten them 7-0 in the reverse fixture. The opening half ended 1-1 after Houssem Aouar scored at the end of the half for Roma to cancel out the lead that Matteo Cancellieri had given Empoli in the 13th minute. Second-half substitute M’Baye Niang scored the only goal of the second half in the third minute of added time to give Empoli a 2-1 win against Roma, a result that pulled them out of the relegation zone. This was Empoli’s first win in their last five league games.

🇮🇹 Frosinone ( 0 ) – ( 1 ) Udinese (italian serie a):
With Empoli’s win, Frosinone had to avoid defeat at home against Udinese to avoid relegation, while Udinese needed a win to do the same.

This victory saved Udinese from relegation and confirmed Frosinone’s relegation on the day.
