La Liga – Round 36
The final UCL spot with three rounds left.

In ‘Round 35’ – Despite being beaten, Getafe holds on to the fourth place. A ‘2-1’ defeat against Real Sociedad didn’t cost Getafe their Champions League ambitions because of Sevilla’s shocking defeat at Girona. Both Getafe and Sevilla were helped by Eibar win against Valencia, while Valencia benefited from Athletic Club’s failure to get home win against Alaves. Everyone had their luck. Girona’s win against Sevilla comes in handy in their battle to avoid relegation.

Getafe – 55 points
Sevilla – 55 points
Valencia – 52 points
Athletic Club – 50 points
Alaves – 47 points

Ligue 1 – Round 35
Four matches left to go and Lille holding firm to the Champions League return. With just a defeat in their last 15 league matches. Lille has scored 5 goals in their last two home games. The most impressive of those wins was the ‘5-1’ thrashing of Paris St. Germain.

The current race for the final direct qualification to the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League
Lille – 68 points
Lyon – 62 points

It is a must win for Lyon.
Lyon hasn’t been successful against Lille in their last 4 league meetings (2D, 2L).
For Lille to widen the 6-point gap between the sides with a win will not only kill off Lyon’s direct qualification ambitions for the Champions League; but also trim Lyon’s chances of getting into the Champions League qualifying stage.
