After the 2-0 loss to Newcastle at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday,Chelsea now has the same focus that Liverpool has had for a few months now. Only one thing matters for these two prestigious clubs as the calendar turns to May: Trophies
On Saturday, the two clubs will meet at Wembley for the FA Cup, a trophy that both clubs will look to take in order to justify their seasons. Currently, Chelsea sits in 6th in the Premier League, while Liverpool sits in the 8th spot, twelve points behind the Blues. Unless Chelsea win the final in Munich on the 19th, both teams are set to miss out on the Champions League next year. The domestic game is, therefore, of great importance for both clubs.

As April turns to May, a mammoth showdown in Rome is set. On May 20th, it’ll be Juventus facing off against Napoli at the Stadio Olimpico in what should be a compelling match. The Bianconeri had to go to extra time with AC Milan at the Juventus Stadium but advanced 4-3 on aggregate, while Siena fought hard in both legs, but fell to Napoli 3-2 over both games.

Congratulations to the 2012 Bundesliga champions, Borussia Dortmund. Though the Germans may have crowned their champions, most European leagues are still tightly contested. With most leagues winding down to their final weeks of action, I take a look at each title race and offer my speculation.

Without the big-spending of PSG, the support of Marseille or the incredible front office of Lyon, Montpellier are on top of Ligue 1. Figuring out why a team promoted just three years ago is leading the title race could prove to be even more confusing than their success itself. Is it because the “top dogs” don’t have any teeth? Or is something special happening?
