Serie A

Milan are on the verge of sealing their first Serie A title since 2011 after a stunner from Theo Hernandez sealed a 2-0 win against Atalanta on Sunday.

They are two points clear of rivals Inter who took the title race to the final weekend after a double from Lautaro Martinez earned the champions a 3-1 win at Cagliari.

Simone Inzaghi’s men must beat Sampdoria at home on Sunday, and hope Milan lose at Sassuolo, to retain the Scudetto due to their inferior head-to-head record.

Both sides endured some nervy moments on the penultimate weekend, but their quality eventually shone through to set up a momentous final day.

Elsewhere, Napoli ensured they finished third with a routine with over Genoa last weekend and Juventus have secured fourth.

In the race for Europe, Lazio are in a commanding position to seal fifth spot and automatically qualify for next season’s Europa League group stage. They host Verona on Saturday evening.

City rivals Roma are sixth, three points adrift of Lazio ahead of their trip to Torino on Friday night. They will make next season’s Europa League if they match Fiorentina and Atalanta’s results and could catch Lazio, although that is very unlikely.

Jose Mourinho’s side also have the insurance of knowing that winning the inaugural Europa Conference League will earn them a place in the Europa League.

Fiorentina in seventh and Atalanta in eighth are both one point behind Roma and could still finish seventh. They take on Empoli and Juventus respectively.

The final relegation place will also be decided on a fascinating final day, with one of Salernitana and Cagliari set to join Genoa and Venezia in Serie B.

Salernitana have gone seven games unbeaten and will complete a remarkable escape if they beat Udinese on Sunday evening or if relegation rivals Cagliari fail to beat bottom side Venezia. Cagliari must win and hope Salernitana slip up to preserve their top-flight status.

With every game exclusively live, BT Sport will show all the thrills and spills from what is set to be a captivating final weekend in Italy.

Ligue 1

Paris Saint-Germain wrapped up a record-equalling 10th French title in April, but there is still plenty to play for on the final day.

Monaco, Marseille and Rennes are still in the hunt for second place on what is shaping up to be a dramatic conclusion to another compelling season.

Philippe Clement’s side have won nine games in a row and are in sensational form ahead of their final game of the season against Lens.

They will guarantee a second-placed finish with a win unless Marseille beat Strasbourg and by a healthy margin, due to Monaco’s superior goal difference.

Marseille take on fifth-placed Strasbourg in a huge clash that will have far-reaching implications on the race for Europe.

Rennes, in fourth, can also finish in the top three but only if they win in Lille and Monaco and Marseille both lose.

Nice are also in the hunt and Lens still retain a slim chance of finishing in the European places but would have to upset Monaco and hope Strasbourg lose in Marseille.

At the bottom, Bordeaux are all but relegated after a dismal campaign but they have a chance of reaching the play-offs if they win and overcome a huge goal difference deficit.

Metz and Saint-Etienne are better placed to make the play-offs - which pits 18th in Ligue 1 against the Ligue 2 play-off winners.

Metz have a daunting trip to Champions PSG on the final day, while Saint-Etienne travel to Coupe de France winners Nantes.

All 10 games kick off simultaneously at 8pm on Saturday so settle in for a night of drama on BT Sport as the French season concludes.
