Paris Saint-Germain, Lyon in thrilling Ligue 1 title battle as season climaxes

Paris Saint-Germain have edged closer to their third Ligue 1 title in a row but Lyon remain on their tails in a thrilling race to the finish.

So here we are, the final stretch in the Ligue 1 season. There are just three games to go for sides vying for the title and only three points separating first and second.

It's what every league in the world wants -- suspense until the end.

Paris Saint-Germain and Lyon are in the final sprint; the Parisians have a three-point lead but the Lyonnais have a marginally better goal difference (39 to 37) which will decide the title if they are both level on points. Here's a look at where the league will...

Carver off but Pellegrini, Allardyce & Rodgers all under threat in sack race

Manuel Pellegrini is under pressure at Manchester City following a poor defence of the title. The ESPN FC crew look at potential replacements.

Sackings are unlikely with just a few Premier League matchups remaining this season.

However, departures in the summer appear inevitable for some managers.

The front runner

Head of that particular queue is John Carver (7/2 to be the next manager go), who is overseeing a full-scale meltdown at Newcastle, complete with multiple shambolic defeats, the wrath of the crowd and accusations that players have deliberately got themselves sent off. There is little question of whether Carver will go; we are...

Why Arsenal's superiority over Spurs, 'St. Totteringham's Day,' continues

ESPN FC's Craig Burley does not feel whatsoever that Arsenal can challenge Chelsea next season with the current squad they have.

Even when superiority is all but an inevitability, a local rivalry is vital to a football supporter's sense of identity. A glance down the road at one's rivals can bring schadenfreude, a sense of well-being through the failings of another.

Up in Scotland, Celtic fans have become experts in company law as they seek material to mock the mess at Rangers. Liverpool's recent disappointments are partially offset by being better than Everton, while Manchester United's Stretford End used to be adorned...

Lionel Messi voted ESPN FC Player of the Month for April

Barcelona trio Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar have now combined for more than 100 goals in all competitions after their side's 6-0 thrashing of Getafe in La Liga.

Europe's top performers for April were whittled down to a three-man shortlist in consultation with WhoScored.com and ESPN FC's writers.

Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Stefan Kiessling were those in contention, and for the fourth time since December, Messi will pick up the award. April is the third straight month the Argentine has won, and with four on the season is now one better than Ronaldo's award tally.

Barcelona's No. 10 received nearly 70 percent of the vote, which isn't all that surprising....

Champions League in danger of losing its appeal by becoming too predictable

Take a By The Numbers look ahead of the Champions League semifinal first legs, as Real Madrid search for consecutive Champions League titles and Bayern Munich aim to continue their dominance at the Camp Nou.

The rhetoric is already being ramped up. Sergio Ramos has described the first leg of Real Madrid's Champions League semifinal with Juventus as one of "three finals" for Carlo Ancelotti's team this season. Lionel Messi is busy insisting that the prospect of meeting Pep Guardiola is not motivating Barcelona's players; Thomas Muller is confident his coach's intimate knowledge of his former club gives Bayern Munich the most slender of advantages.

This week is one of those rare occasions when the hype...

Targu Mures on verge of becoming football's unlikeliest champion ever

In just their first season back in Romania's stop-flight, Targu Mures are closing in their first ever title.
In just their first season back in Romania's stop-flight, Targu Mures are closing in their first ever title.

They are a small, newly promoted team who were expected to struggle in a relegation battle with a bunch of ageing has-beens in their squad. They controversially sacked not one but two coaches by December. Their general manager abandoned the club as well. They very nearly sold their only promising young player during the winter break. Their best known player was underperforming and was close to having his contract terminated. Their top scorer is a fervent and vocal fan of their rivals' president....
