Saturday Open Thread: Everything is Ending Edition

With the final round of Premier League fixtures set for tomorrow, it's all about the closing stages of the domestic leagues around the continent as well as the League Two playoff final.

All the big title races are done across Europe, as Chelsea won the Premier League comfortably, Juventus captured another Serie A crown, Bayern Munich did Bayern Munich things and were on vacation weeks ago, and Barcelona cemented the La Liga title last weekend. That doesn't leave much drama at the top of the table, but there's plenty to be settled at the bottom. In Spain, Elche and Almeria can stay up with wins if Granada and Deportivo lose, which is more than possible considering the former hosts Atletico Madrid and the latter travels to the Nou Camp. The Bundesliga has similar drama, with only SC Paderborn confirmed to join the German second division. Each of Freiburg, Hannover, Stuttgart, and Hamburg could find themselves dropping after today's results. No drama to be found in Serie A, with all three teams headed to Serie B already cemented and only two fixtures--Juventus vs. Napoli and Genoa vs. Inter--on the day. Same story in Ligue One, where the only interest will be if Divock Origi and Tiago Ilori see time for Lille and Bordeaux.

The Football League's lone fixture is the League Two playoff final at Wembley, where Southend United and Wycombe Wanderers will meet for the right to join League One. Burton Albion, Shrewsbury Town, and Bury have already settled their promotion via the league table, and one of Southend or Wycombe will join them with a win today.
