European Football Roundup 9/6/2020

Any Bayern doubters were silenced this week as they romped to a 4-2 win at rivals Leverkusen. Dortmund are looking secure in second after beating flying Hertha, with Gladbach losing in the Black Forest and Leipzig held by plucky Paderborn, who will be relegated in the next couple of weeks barring a miracle. That miracle would have to start with a win over Werder this weekend, who find themselves in deep, deep trouble after falling to both the Eagles and the Wolves. Eintracht did them a double disservice by losing to Mainz, who are now just one win from safety, like Augsburg and Union, who both managed draws. Both these teams will play Fortuna in the last two matchdays, with the Flingeraner stuck in the relegation play-off place after a draw with Hoffenheim. (TABLE)

Just a couple of days until the Seville derby raises the curtain on the restart in Spain. There are not too many top of the table clashes early on, but Athletic will face Atletico and Valencia will host local rivals Levante. The battles for the title, Europe and survival are all very tight. (TABLE)

More detailed fixtures have now been published for the restart of the Premier League with football likely to be played every day, following the Spain model. Early highlights include Manchester City vs Arsenal (17th), Mourinho-led Spurs hosting Man U (19th) and the Merseyside derby (21st). (TABLE)

Serie A has announced its opening fixtures for June 20th and, like the Premier League, will begin by playing games in hand in case the season needs to be curtailed. Inter and Atalanta will both be in action, with the Nerazzurri of Milan looking to revive their fading title challenge as the Nerazzurri of Bergamo aim to put distance between themselves and fifth in the race for the Champions League.
