Burnley & QPR Relegated, Liverpool & Chelsea Draw, Real Madrid Held, Bayern Lose Again, Red Bull Win Derby, Monday Night Football, Someone Almost Shot The Zlatan

The New York Derby is off and running...

Happy Monday! Club soccer is coming to a close across Europe, and the battles at this point are primarily for spots in the Champions League and Europa League...and to avoid the dreaded drop. The La Liga title looks to be Barcelona's to lose after Real Madrid could only salvage a draw with Valencia on Saturday, and, as you know, the Champions have already been crowned in England, Italy, and Germany. Let's get to it, beginning with the Premier League.
