Yes! We have finally brought you an all-in-one article reviewing recent results of games and happenings in football’s top five leagues. As a majority of the leagues have gone well past the half-mark in terms of games played, let’s look at how the title race is in the top three leagues and make predictions for the last round of league games to be played before the international break. The English Premier League, Spanish La Liga, and German Bundesliga are the top three leagues covered.
Football Top Three League Latest Results
Here we will look at the latest results of the games played by teams in the top four of the three leagues.
English Premier League
- Arsenal Vs Fulham (3-0)
The Gunners’ title charge continues as they keep waxing stronger as a team. The Gunners played ninth-placed Fulham in their last league game and completely outplayed the home side at Craven Cottage. Arsenal took control of the game from the start, which earned them a three-nil win. Things could have easily gone out of hand, and it could have been more than that if the Gunners were a bit more clinical. The win meant Arsenal kept their five-point lead over Manchester City.
- Manchester City Vs Crystal Palace (1-0)
Manchester City knew that they could not afford to drop points again at this stage of the title race, but Crystal Palace was rock solid and almost denied the Cityzens three points. It had to come to a Michael Olise foul on IIkay Gundogan in the 78th minute for City to score in that game finally. Erling Haaland stepped to the spot and calmly slotted the penalty to maintain City’s title charge. City remains five points behind Arsenal.
- Manchester United Vs Southampton (0-0)
Manchester United played a struggling Southampton side in their last league outing, and their performance in that game showed that not only were they clearly out of the title race, but they might also be struggling for a top-four spot. United’s midfielder Casemiro was sent off in the first half, and United struggled for the entirety of the game afterward. The game ended in a stalemate, and United is now only six points ahead of fifth-placed Newcastle.
- Tottenham Vs Nottingham Forest (3-1)
Tottenham, as expected, gained maximum points from their encounter against fourteenth-placed Nottingham Forest. Harry Kane notched a brace, while Heung Min Son added a third as Tottenham eventually won the game by three goals to one. Forest’s only goal in the game was merely a consolation. The win meant Tottenham is now only two points behind third-placed Manchester United.
Spanish La Liga
- FC Barcelona Vs Athletic Club (1-0)
Barcelona is simply comfortable at the top of the table in La Liga. The Spanish giants, who are out of the European Competition, have made La Liga their sole priority this season. They haven’t won the league since the 2018/19 season. They played Athletic Club in their last league outing, and Raphinha’s strike at the end of the first half was enough to secure all three points. They are now nine points adrift of second-placed Real Madrid.
- Real Madrid Vs Espanyol (3-1)
The Los Blancos are second in La Liga and were up against Espanyol in their last league game. Even with their top striker out of the lineup, Madrid handled an early scare after being down by a goal in the first ten minutes. Madrid easily staged a comeback as they put three past Espanyol to win the game 3-1.
- Atletico Madrid Vs Girona (1-0)
Diego Simeone’s side is believed to have settled for a top-four spot this season. Their last league game saw them win by a goal to nil against Girona. Alvaro Morata scored the only goal of the game. Atletico Madrid is three points ahead of fourth-placed Real Sociedad.
- Real Sociedad Vs Mallorca (1-1)
Sociedad dropped points in their last league outing, and it doesn’t look good for them now. They played out a 1-1 draw against Mallorca which meant they are now only three points ahead of the fifth-placed Real Betis.
- Bayern Munich Vs Augsburg (5-3)
Bayern Munich finally has breathing space in the league. Bundesliga is currently witnessing one of the most competitive races for the title, and any slip-up by any of the top two teams could jeopardize their chances at the title. Bayern Munich’s last league game was a goal-galore as they won 5-3 in an eight-goal thriller. The win meant Bayern is now two points clear of second-placed Borussia Dortmund.
- Borussia Dortmund Vs Schalke 04 (2-2)
Dortmund will be gutted that they dropped points against a 17th-placed Schalke 04 team. This game was after Chelsea snapped Dortmund’s win streak since the start of 2023 in the midweek Champions League action. Dortmund seems to haven’t gotten over it yet, as they allowed Schalke to come back twice in the game, which ended 2-2.
- RB Leipzig Vs Borussia Monchengladbach (3-0)
RB Leipzig stepped up in their top-four race as they obtained maximum points against Monchengladbach. In a game where Leipzig could not put the ball at the back of the net in the first half, three second-half goals did the magic.
- Union Berlin Vs Wolfsburg (1-1)
Union Berlin dropped points in their last league game, meaning they are now level on points with Leipzig and Freiburg and just separated on goal difference. They led by a goal to nil via a penalty in the 72nd minute, but a few minutes to the stoppage time, Wolfsburg equalized to share the spoils.

Football Top Three League Predictions and Tips
Here we will look at the top games to be played in the top three leagues as the last round of actions kicks off this weekend before the international break.
Arsenal Vs Crystal Palace
Arsenal was recently dumped out of the Europa League round of sixteen by Sporting Lisbon via a penalty shootout. Arteta’s men will need to react to this loss, and playing Crystal Palace is a perfect avenue to get back to winning ways. On the other hand, Crystal Palace gave Manchester City a tough time, but I reckon they will struggle against Arsenal. Arsenal is backed to score multiple goals in this one. The odds for over 3.5 total goals, according to Stake.com, are 2.75 (decimal) +175 (American).
Barcelona Vs Real Madrid
El Classico is here again. Real Madrid comfortably edged Liverpool by a goal to nil in their last game in the Champions League as they eased into the quarterfinals. However, they will look to avenge their 1-0 loss to Barcelona in their previous encounter. This will be a close game, but Madrid is backed to win. The odds for Real Madrid to win, according to Stake.com, are 3.30 (decimal) +230 (American)
Bayern Munich Vs Bayer Leverkusen
Bayern Munich is one team that is on a tear right now. They had a goal fest in their last game, and we do not believe that Leverkusen will be much of a threat to them. We back a similar outcome to their previous game, with more than three goals tipped to be scored. The odds for over 3.5 total goals, according to Stake.com, are 3.10 (decimal) +210 (American).
