Europe's big 5 leagues - who will emerge victorious?


With February well underway, it's less than 3 months to the end of the season in most of the major European leagues. Euro 2020 is on the horizon, but before we switch our attentions to that, the winners and losers of the titles races need to be decided. The gamblers amongst you should check out the best betting sites, if you fancy a flutter.

Premier League (England)

The title race is England has been over for a long time, with league leaders Liverpool strolling to their first ever Premier League crown and first championship trophy since 1990.

The Reds have been phenomenal all season and sit 22 points clear at the top of the league, having drawn only one game all season, winning the rest.

The battle for European places sees Leicester and Man City seemingly assumed of Champions League places with Chelsea in pole position to take 4th spot. Big sides like Arsenal, Spurs and Manchester United are fighting the likes of Wolves and Sheffield United for the Europa League spots.

Down at the bottom of the league, Norwich look like making a swift return to the Championship, having struggled to adjust to life in the Premier League. A dreadful run of down has seen Bournemouth slip into relegation contention, but it's Watford and West Ham who currently occupy the final 2 places.

Bundesliga (Germany)

The German Bundesliga title race is the closest it has been in a long time, setting up an exciting end to the season. Current champions Bayern Munich are top but only one point ahead of RB Leipzig, who have only lost 3 matches all season. Dortmund and Monchengladbach are a further 3 points behind with Leverkusen in 5th place, only 6 points off the top.

Serie A (Italy)

The title race in Italy is an even closer affair with 3 teams in with a shout of being crowned champions. Defending champion Juventus sit level on points with Inter Milan. Both team have 54 points from their 23 matches. A point further back are Lazio after an incredible run of 11 consecutive victories between October and January propelled them up the table.

La Liga (Spain)

Over in Spain, the top two are (rather unsurprisingly) Real Madrid and Barcelona with the forming currently enjoying a 3 point cushion over their rivals. But it's another team from Madrid who are making the headlines as Getafe's incredible season sees them sit in 3rd place, above the likes of Atletico, Valencia and Sevilla. Getafe we're re-formed in 1983 and worked their way up from the 7th tier of Spanish football, to an all-time high finishing fifth last season. As it stands, Getafe would qualify for the Champions League for the first time in their history.

Ligue 1 (France)

Last on our whistle stop tour of Europe is France where the title race seems to have been over for a while.

PSG currently sit top of the pile with an impressive 20 wins from their 24 matches played. Marseille sit in second place, but are currently 12 points behind the league leaders. Rennes and Lille sit just one point apart in 3rd and 4th as they vie for the final Champions League place.
