• League: Real and Barça at full speed, Sevilla offers a joker
Even after three months of interruption, sports dynamics have not really changed in La Liga. For their comeback, FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, opposite Mallorca (0-4) and Eibar (3-1), went for three points. The Catalans thus remain two steps ahead in the classification manager’s duel.
The recovery was more complicated for Atletico de Madrid, connected to Bilbao (1-1), for Real Sociedad, slowed by Osasuna (1-1) and for Getafe, beaten by Granada (2-1). Contest that favored Sevilla FC, the winner of the Betis derby (2-0) and now only third.

We will therefore have to wait a little longer for Bayern Munich. The Bavarian club, which is on its way to a 30th championship title in Germany, saw its coronation delayed by at least one day, as Borussia Dortmund did not falter against Fortuna Düsseldorf (0-1).
A success that allows the yellow and black to keep their gap with Bayern as the Bundesliga leader prevailed over the shock of the 31st day against Borussia M’Gladbach (2-1). A final success for the Reds, starting Tuesday against Werder Bremen, would end the title race.

A week before the resumption of Serie A, Italy revived its football through the return semi-finals of the Italian Cup. A meeting that Juventus Turin did not miss, as it will be there for the final. Instead of AC Milan, Cristiano Ronaldo and his teammates did not need to score (0-0) and utilized a goal that scored outside the first stage (1-1) to seek their qualification.
Opposite is a rival the old lady knows well: Naples. The Neapolitans, who live a somewhat complicated season in the league, have joined the Cup final at the expense of Inter Milan. After their victory on the outing (0-1), a draw for their luck for this recovery (1-1) was enough. The final will be played on June 17.
