D1 Final Games of the Season Preview


Barcelona won their fifth D1 title on Sunday night with a 1-0 win at the home of the defending champions, and three-time winners, Bayern Munich.

Fight For Fourth

Still to be settled at the top of the table is who will win the 4th place ‘trophy’? Roma, Chelsea or Juventus?

Chelsea and Juventus appear to have the simplest with home fixtures against already relegated PSG, and relegation threatened Dortmund, respectively.

Wins for Chelsea and Juventus will see them finish above Roma unless the latter can beat Bayern’s reserves at home.

Chelsea’s superior goal difference may well be the deciding factor here.

Spurs to Stay Up? Napoli to Drop?

At the the other end, in addition to PSG, Schalke are already down, leaving an intriguing final round of matches with five teams fighting to avoid the final two relegation places.

Dortmund’s tough task in Turin means they are the most likely of the five to be playing the likes of Hamburger next season.

Spurs host Liverpool, knowing that a draw might be enough if Internacional lose by two or more in the Bernabeu.

Napoli visit Genoa, where anything less than a win could see them relegated if Dortmund and Spurs win, or if one of them wins and Internacional draw.

Arsenal are not safe, either, and they go to the Camp Nou to play the newly-crowned champions. If they lose, and the teams below all win, they will go down in one of the shocks of the season.
