Next0 / 5

Another exciting chapter of European football is coming to an end and countries across the continent are gearing up for some thrilling action as league seasons come to a close. 

Two major leagues haven't been decided yet and the race for Champions League qualification in the Premier League has never been tighter.

Here are five important footballing outcomes that could be decided on the coming weekend:

5. The Premier League Golden Boot winner

​Harry Kane scored four very impressive goals as Tottenham Hotspur dispatched Leicester off in routine fashion. A 6-1 win asserted their dominance over the defending champions, who have endured a massive fall from grace.

However, it's the England international's performance that stole the headlines. He is currently on 26 goals, making him the front-runner in the race to win the golden boot. 

Kane is two goals ahead of Everton and Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku and the last game-week could be a crucial decisive moment.

Tottenham will be facing Hull City while Everton have the trickier fixture of facing Arsenal.

4. Hamburg and the threat of relegation

Bayern Munich have run away with another German title, but it's the relegation battle that's heating up. Hamburg are currently 16th in the league, with Wolfsburg above them by only two points. In the final game-week, they both are set to face each other off in a script that no one could have foreseen.

Hamburg have never been relegated since the formation of the Bundesliga in 1963, but for the third time in four years, they are in the relegation play-offs once again. A draw will be of no use, as Hamburg have a poor goal difference,

With only three points separating 12th position from 16th, the bottom half of the Bundesliga has never been more exciting.

3. The Premier League top four

The race for a Champions League spot is heating up in the Premier League. Manchester City, Liverpool, and Arsenal could all face the danger of missing out on a crucial European spot if they do not manage positive results.

Three points separate the three teams, with fifth-placed Arsenal at 72 and Manchester City in third with 75 points. 

The Gunners face the daunting task of facing Everton and will only make it to the Champions League next year if City and Liverpool somehow slip up in their games against Watford and Middlesbrough respectively.

2. The Serie A champions

The Serie A is left with just two games and despite Juventus's percieved domination, the league isn't theirs yet. 

Roma are four points behind the Turin club, with games against Chievo and Genoa on the horizon. They'll need to pick up all six points while hoping that Juventus somehow make an unlikely error.

The Old Lady only recently became the first team to win three successive Coppa Italia titles after a confident 2-0 win over Lazio. The team are also in the Champions League finals and have been one of the best teams in Europe.

Not many expect them to have any trouble in winning another Italian title, but football has been known to be cruel.

1. The La Liga winner

The last time Real Madrid tasted league success was way back in 2011/12 when current Manchester Untied manager Jose Mourinho was still in charge. The club has tasted success in other competitions since but they have failed to have a successful La Liga campaign in years.

With only one game to go, Real went on top of the table with a 4-1 win over Celta Vigo. Three points separate the side from Barcelona and Los Blancos now need only one point to secure a historic win. 

A loss would mean that Barcelona would secure another league title if they can win their final game and get the job done. 

Real Madrid also have their eyes set on a Champions League final against Juventus and the pressure is mounting on them to ensure that they can pull off both trophy wins.
