What to watch in the final round of the 2022-23 Premier League Bundesliga and WSL season

Three top leagues in Europe are concluding their 2022/23 season this weekend. There will be no title drama this time on the final day of the Premier League but it will be in Germany as Dortmund gets closer to end Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga reign. The Champions League, Europa League and Conference League places are also to be determined.

The fight for relegation will drive attention to the English top flight instead. Everton, Leicester and Leeds will know whether they will enjoy Premier League football again next season this weekend, separated just by two points. The 2022/23 WSL league title winners are also to be determined with Chelsea and Manchester United in a tight battle for the honor.

The title race is done and dusted in the 2022/23 Premier League season with Manchester City successfully defending it for the third consecutive time. So is the top-four after Newcastle confirmed their status with a point against Leicester in the 0-0 draw on Monday. Manchester United also need a point to secure Champions League football next season in welcoming Chelsea at Old Trafford on Thursday night. A defeat will force them to perform the job on the final day of the season against Fulham at home.

Liverpool have to settle for the fifth spot to qualify for Europa League as it is unlikely the Red Devils will fail to gain a point in their remaining two games. Brighton have gained Europa League football so they will battle Aston Villa, a contender for the Conference League, on Sunday without any pressure. Tottenham Hotspurs and Brentford are also in the mix and both need a favor from the Seagulls to make their place in Europe. The North London club have to beat Leeds first, a draw might not be enough, who are in a relegation scrap with Leicester and Everton.

The Toffees have to win against Bournemouth to make absolutely certain of their Premier League status next season. Anything other than a win could jeopardize their 17th position on the table. Meanwhile, Leicester have to win against West Ham and hope others fail to do so after their goalless draw with Newcastle in the penultimate round. The same criteria work for Leeds. If both Leicester and Leeds triumph on the day and Everton don’t then it will all come down to goal difference or head-to-head record, both of which favors the Foxes.

WSL



The final round of the 2022/23 Women’s Super League season or the WSL also falls this weekend. The title is going down to the wire with current leaders Chelsea separated by three points from second-placed Manchester United. The Red Devils led the WSL chart for the majority of the campaign but the Blues winning their remaining games have put them into pole position of lifting the title for the fourth season running. Emma Hayes’ side will take on bottom-placed Reading, who are battling with Leicester to avoid relegation, on Saturday which means United’s wish to claim their first-ever top-flight title is slim even if they win against Liverpool in the derby. Arsenal dropped out of the title race after losing to Chelsea last weekend but looks set to clinch the Women’s Champions League spot ahead of Manchester City. The Gunners face Aston Villa in their last game of the season while City welcome Everton at home.

Bundesliga

The most interesting title race in the Bundesliga for over a decade will declare the champions this final weekend of the 2022/23 season. The gap between the top and the second is two points. Table-toppers Borussia Dortmund have destiny in their own hands now after Bayern Munich slipped off against RB Leipzig last weekend as a win against Augsburg at home will hand them the ‘Meisterschale’ for the first time since 2012.

Die Roten’s league-winning streak for 10 consecutive seasons is in real danger. Their only home loss of the campaign was a major blow to their aspiration of retaining the title once again. Thomas Tuchel’s men will travel to Koln knowing a victory will not be enough if the Black and Yellows win their final fixture unless there is a slip-off.

Koln have nothing left to play for but Augsburg does as they sit only three points clear of safety and two points from the relegation playoff spot. They need at least a point to confirm their safety with Schalke, Bochum and Stuttgart all waiting to pounce on each other slip-up to stay up. The latter will enjoy Bundesliga football again if points are tied at the end of the day owing to goal difference.   

The fight for the European places is also intense as Freiburg and Union Berlin is in the battle for the final Champions League place. Union sit at fourth and need a win against Werder Bremen to be absolutely certain of their place. Christian Streich’s side are getting Europa League football anyway even if they fail to beat Conference League chasers Frankfurt or Die Eisernen seals the deal in their match.   

Meanwhile, The Eagles are in a battle with Wolfsburg and sixth-placed Leverkusen for the competition spot separated by three points. A win will do for Xabi Alonso’s men against relegation-threatened Bochum while the Wolves have to beat second-division heading Hertha Berlin to stand a chance.
