Sunday Euro Roundup

It was a fairly uneventful Sunday across Europe- Inter Milan, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid all won easily today to put themselves in position to wrap up league titles next week. Lyon, which drew yesterday with Caen, can also join the party next week with their seventh-straight French Ligue 1 title.

The issue remains in doubt in Scotland, however, as Celtic rallied past Rangers at Celtic Park, 3-2, to post a secpnd home victory in 12 days over their crosstown rival. Normally Celtic's five-point lead in late April would be cause for celebration, but Rangers are in the unusual position of having three games in hand, so retain the advantage.

A cracking affair with European implications saw Everton draw 2-2 with Aston Villa in a match that saw three goals in the final 10 minutes. Aston Villa twice battled back from a goal down to remain three points behind Everton for fifth in the Premier League, a spot that carries with it a UEFA Cup berth. The draw also meant Liverpool officially clinched fourth and a spot in the Champions League for next year.
