Congratulations Real Madrid and Bayern Munich



This weekend saw two of the big four European soccer leagues crown their champions. Bayern Munich reclaimed the Bundesliga title with a 0-0 draw with VfL Wolfsburg. The victory put the Bavarians 10 points ahead of Werder Bremen with three matches remaining. Real Madrid captured its second consecutive La Liga title with a 2-1 victory over Osasuna also putting it ten points ahead of its closest rival--Villareal.


The other two major leagues in Europe--Serie A and the English Premier League (suck it Barclay's!)--still remain up in the air.

Inter's loss to AC Milan keeps Roma in the title hunt and AC Milan in the hunt for a Champions League birth. And in England, Chelsea and Manchester United will likely go down to the last day to determine the champion. Provided Chelsea can put down Newcastle on Monday, which might be tougher than originally thought given Newcastle's recent run of luck. If Chelsea prevails on Monday, the two squads will be level on points with ManU having a significant goal differential advantage going into the final weekend.

Elsewhere, Bordeaux remains in the hunt trailing Olympique Lyon by two points in Ligue 1. Rangers are still in touch with title chances, but Celtic look likely to retain the title seven points clear with three matches remaining.

Thanks Mike. Should have read three games in hand...and apparently the story I was going off of was incorrect as the standings say Celtic is 8 points clear.

Oh, and yeah, isn't that Bayern Munich photo just the paragon of latent homosexuality in sport? Reminds me of the Schmitt's Gay spoof ad on SNL.
