1. The FA Cup for Liverpool! As in the League Cup final last February Liverpool finally beat Chelsea (0-0, 6-5 on penalties) after the excitement of the FA Cup final! After a thunderous start to the game by the reds, the blues were able to react with a very intense game. Despite Salah’s injury absence, the two teams went head-to-head but scored against Mendy, Alisson or the post. The two teams were unable to separate during regulation time and then overtime, and thus faced each other in a penalty shootout. And in that drill Klopp’s men were at their most skillful despite a save from Mendy in front of Man while Azpilicueta and Mount missed for the Londoners!

2. Backward, Bayern ends in a draw. Already holy for several weeks, Bayern Munich hooked after Wolfsburg (2: 2) for the last match day of the Bundesliga. Despite quick goals from Stanisic (17′) and Lewandowski (40′)The Munich team conceded a draw after the performances of Wind (45th) and Kruse (58th). A result without consequences for Bayern, who were 8 points ahead of runners-up Borussia Dortmund.

3. Lewandowski still on top. For the seventh time in his career Bayern Munich’s center forward Lewandowski became the Bundesliga’s top scorer. In this 2021-2022 financial year, the Poland international has shown an exceptional performance with a total of 35 goals in 34 games. The Munich player is ahead of Schick (24 goals with Bayer Leverkusen), Hland (22 goals with Dortmund), then the French Modeste and Nkunku (20 goals with Cologne and Leipzig). This is the fifth consecutive coronation for Lewandowski.

4. Müller, the art of passing! For the 3rd time in a row and for the 4th time in his career FC Bayern Munich attacking midfielder Müller ended the Bundesliga season as the best provider of assists. With 18 gifts handed out, the German edged out Diaby and Nkunku, authors of 12 crucial passes with Bayer Leverkusen and RB Leipzig. A true living legend.

5. Worry about Salah!Defending champions v Chelsea (0-0, in progress) in FA Cup final, Liverpool winger Salah was substituted in the 33rd minute as replaced by iota. Attacked muscularly in the thigh, the Egyptian international is now inevitably insecure for the final push in the Premier League, but also the Champions League final against Real Madrid scheduled for May 28 at the Stade de France.

6. Dortmund wins on the wire. For this last match day of the Bundesliga Dortmund, already guaranteed second place, won on the wire against Hertha Berlin (2-1). After the beginning of the score of Belfodil (18th, sp), The BvB has Galis von Hland (68th, sp)scorer for his last match under that team’s colours, before the winning goal, Moukoko signed (84th). A great party at Signal Iduna Park. Note that Hertha, 16th, must play a play-off to avoid trailing Greuther Furth, 18th, and Bielefeld, 17th, in the Bundesliga 2.

7. Leipzig got hot… long led to the score, RB Leipzig finally snagged a draw against Bielefeld (1-1) on the last matchday of the Bundesliga. With this result Nkunku and his partners managed to maintain 4th place overall and qualified for the Champions League. A relief for the RBL, well supported by the simultaneous victory of Bayer Leverkusen, 3rd, against Freiburg (2:1).

8. Farewell to Hland Dortmund. Final clapping for Hland in the colors of Borussia Dortmund! After announcing his move to Manchester City this summer The Norwegian was entitled to a beautiful tribute at Signal Iduna Park receiving Hertha Berlin (1:1) in the Bundesliga for his last game against BvB. The young prodigy has won 89 games in all competitions scored 86 goals and provided 23 assists. Terrifying statistics!

9. Lewandowski’s grand proposal…Top scorer against Wolfsburg (2:2) in the Bundesliga,Did Lewandowski play his last game in Bayern Munich colors? Like the Munich sports director Salihamidzic (see article here), the Polish international under contract until June 2023, asked to leave the German champions this summer. For the time being, the Bayern bosses are refusing a departure voucher for ex-Borussia Dortmund. But on his side The center forward seemed very moved when he greeted the Bayern fans present in the Volkswagen Arena. A way to say goodbye?
