:Headline: This weekend's permutations: Who can be crowned champions, win promotion or suffer relegation?:
Ahead of this weekend's action, Sports Mole rounds up which teams could be crowned champions, win promotion or suffer relegation from the top leagues across Europe.
Sports Mole

Domestic leagues across Europe have now entered the business end of the season, with battles at the top and bottom of standings now close to reaching their conclusions.

While some titles and relegation scraps have already been decided, others are going down to the wire in thrilling fashion.

That includes the Premier League title race, which will be decided on Sunday when Arsenal need a slip-up from Manchester City in order to pip them to top spot, and that is not the only top-flight crown that could be settled this weekend.

A thrilling Women's Super League title race sees two teams go into the final day level on points, while a record-breaking Galatasaray team could also be coronated this weekend.

Elsewhere, relegations could be confirmed in the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and the Turkish Super Lig.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of the permutations from around Europe's top leagues for this week, and outlines exactly what each club needs to do to fulfill those possibilities.



What could be decided across Europe this weekend?

PREMIER LEAGUE PERMUTATIONS

What do Man City, Arsenal need to do to win the Premier League title?

  • Manchester City will be crowned champions for an unprecedented fourth season in a row if they beat West Ham United on Sunday. Failing that, they would clinch the title as long as they at least match Arsenal's result.
  • Arsenal would win the Premier League title for the first time in 20 years on the final day if they beat Everton and Man City fail to win.

  • KEY FIXTURES

    Arsenal vs. Everton (Sunday, May 19 | 4pm)
    Manchester City vs. West Ham United (Sunday, May 19 | 4pm)

    When could Luton Town be relegated?

  • Luton will be relegated if they fail to beat Fulham at home on the final day of the season. Only a win, coupled with a Nottingham Forest defeat and a 12-goal swing, would be enough to keep them up on the final day.
  • Nottingham Forest can only be relegated if they lose against Burnley and Luton beat Fulham with a 12-goal swing between the two matches.

  • KEY FIXTURES

    Burnley vs. Nottingham Forest (Sunday, May 19 | 4pm)
    Luton Town vs. Fulham (Sunday, May 19 | 4pm)



    LA LIGA PERMUTATIONS

    Who could be relegated from La Liga this weekend?

  • Cadiz will be relegated with one game to spare if they lose to Las Palmas on Sunday. A draw would also see them relegated if Mallorca avoid defeat at home to already-relegated Almeria, but a win is guaranteed to take their fate to the final day regardless of what happens elsewhere due to them then having a superior head-to-head record over Las Palmas, who would only be three points ahead in that event.

  • KEY FIXTURES

    Cadiz vs. Las Palmas (Sunday, May 19 | 6pm)
    Mallorca vs. Almeria (Sunday, May 19 | 6pm)



    SERIE A PERMUTATIONS

    Who could be relegated from Serie A this weekend?

  • Sassuolo will be relegated if they lose to fellow relegation rivals Cagliari on Sunday. A draw would also see them relegated if Frosinone then avoid defeat at Monza later in the day.
  • Empoli could also be relegated this weekend if they lose to Udinese in another huge six-pointer, Frosinone and Cagliari both win, and Hellas Verona avoid defeat.

  • KEY FIXTURES

    Sassuolo vs. Cagliari (Sunday, May 19 | 11.30am)
    Monza vs. Frosinone (Sunday, May 19 | 2pm)
    Udinese vs. Empoli (Sunday, May 19 | 2pm)
    Salernitana vs. Hellas Verona (Monday, May 20 | 5.30pm)



    BUNDESLIGA PERMUTATIONS

    Who could be relegated from Bundesliga this weekend?

  • Koln kept their slim hopes alive with a dramatic 3-2 comeback win over Union Berlin last weekend, but they will be relegated if they fail to beat Heidenheim, or if Union Berlin avoid defeat to Freiburg. The only way for Koln to stay up is to win and hope Union Berlin lose with a four-goal swing; if Koln score five goals themselves, then a three-goal swing could suffice.
  • Union Berlin will avoid automatic relegation with at least point, or if Koln fail to win. It would require a Union Berlin defeat, Koln win and a four-goal swing in goal difference - or a three-goal swing if Koln score five times - for the capital outfit to go down.
  • There is a slim possibility that Koln and Union could finish on the same points, goal difference and goals scored, in which case Koln would suffer automatic relegation due to their inferior head-to-head record.

  • KEY FIXTURES

    Heidenheim vs. Koln (Saturday, May 18 | 2.30pm)
    Union Berlin vs. Freiburg (Saturday, May 18 | 2.30pm)



    LIGUE 1 PERMUTATIONS

    Who could be relegated from Ligue 1 this weekend?

  • Lorient will be relegated if they fail to beat rock-bottom Clermont, or if Metz avoid defeat to champions Paris Saint-Germain. If Lorient win and Metz lose, Lorient would need a seven-goal swing in their favour to survive.
  • Metz could be automatically relegated if they lose, Lorient win and there is an 11-goal swing between the two games.

  • KEY FIXTURES

    Lorient vs. Clermont (Sunday, May 19 | 8pm)
    Metz vs. Paris Saint-Germain (Sunday, May 19 | 8pm)



    TURKISH SUPER LIG PERMUTATIONS

    When could Galatasaray be crowned champions?

  • Galatasaray have the mouth-watering prospect of winning the title against their greatest rivals and closest challengers Fenerbahce on Sunday. Gala only need to avoid defeat to not only win the highest-quality Turkish Super Lig title race in history, but also to become the first Turkish club to reach 100 points in a season.

  • KEY FIXTURE

    Galatasaray vs. Fenerbahce (Sunday, May 19 | 5pm)

    Who could be relegated from the Turkish Super Lig this weekend?

  • Pendikspor will be relegated if they lose to relegation rivals Ankaragucu on Saturday. They would also be relegated if they draw, either Gaziantep or Fatih Karagumruk win against the other, and Hatayspor beat Besiktas.
  • Hatayspor will be relegated if they lose, Gaziantep and Ankaragucu both win and Konyaspor avoid defeat.
  • Fatih Karagumruk will be relegated if they lose to Gaziantep and both Ankaragucu and Konyaspor avoid defeat.

  • KEY FIXTURES

    Ankaragucu vs. Pendikspor (Saturday, May 18 | 5pm)
    Besiktas vs. Hatayspor (Saturday, May 18 | 5pm)
    Gaziantep vs. Fatih Karagumruk (Saturday, May 18 | 5pm)
    Kayserispor vs. Konyaspor (Saturday, May 18 | 5pm)



    WOMEN'S SUPER LEAGUE PERMUTATIONS

    What do Chelsea, Man City need to win the title on the final day?

  • Chelsea will be crowned champions in Emma Hayes's final game as manager if they match Manchester City's result, so long as Man City do not beat Aston Villa by three goals more than Chelsea beat Manchester United by.
  • Man City will win the title if they better Chelsea's result, or if they win by three goals more than Chelsea.

  • KEY FIXTURES

    Aston Villa vs. Manchester City (Saturday, May 18 | 3pm)
    Manchester United vs. Chelsea (Saturday, May 18 | 3pm)
