FOLLOWING ENGLISH champions Chelsea, Olympique Lyonnais were able to claim their fourth French title in succession by beating Ajaccio 2-1 with three league games still to be played.

In Germany, Bayern Munich wrapped up the championship well ahead of the end of the season and, in Holland, PSV Eindhoven have an unassailable lead.

Last weekend, a Samuel Eto’o goal handed Barcelona a 1-1 away draw against Levante, a result that, combined with Madrid’s 2-2 draw in Seville, gave the Catalan club their first title in six years and the 17th of their illustrious history. In Italy, Juventus broke the deadlock at the head of the table two weeks ago with a 1-0 win against title rivals AC Milan at the Guiseppe Meazza Stadium. Last Sunday, virtual champions Juventus sealed their advantage and claimed the championship with a 2-0 win over Parma while AC only drew 2-2.

Celtic only need a draw to take the Scottish title this weekend.
