Another Season Over

The domestic season has ended in all of the major European leagues this weekend. All European leagues ended with their biggest domestic cup competition final.

Manchester United won their first trophy since Sir Alex Ferguson retired winning the FA Cup 2-1 against Crystal Palace at Wembley. It wasn’t enough to save Louis van Gaal’s job though as he was sacked this morning with Jose Mourinho looking likely to replace him.

While in Spain in an exciting match between Barcelona and Sevilla. Barcelona came out on top in extra time to win the Copa Del Rey and win a League and Cup double, after having to play with 10 men for the majority of the game because Javier Mascherano got sent off in the 36th minute.

In Italy it also went to extra time in the match between AC Milan and Juventus with Juventus winning near the end of the second half of extra time thanks to a goal from Alvaro Morata. Morata who had only come off the bench on the 108 minute and scored the winner 122 seconds later.

Juventus celebrate with the trophy

Meanwhile in France Paris Saint Germain had a far easier final than the rest of the teams playing in cup finals this weekend, as they ran out 4-2 winners against Marseille. It ended another dominant season for PSG as they won every domestic trophy in France and Zlatan Ibrahimovic leaves PSG having won 12 trophies in his time with PSG.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic left PSG on a high note.

The domestic season might be over in most of the major European Leagues but it doesn’t mean that football is over for the summer. Many leagues across Europe will still be playing league football such as Ireland, Iceland and Finland. There is also the Champions League Final to look forward to this weekend a Madrid Derby between Real and Atletico, which should be an exciting game. But if you are wondering what you are going to do this summer without football there is no need to worry as on the 10th June the European Championship starts in France, which should keep us all entertained until the excitement of another European season rolls around again in August.
