All confirmed champions and relegations from Europe’s top leagues


It has been a thrilling season of action across all five of the biggest leagues in Europe.

Many title races have gone the distance with some clubs ending long waits for league success, while others are staring down the barrel of relegation.

As it stands in the top five leagues – the Premier League, Serie A, La Liga, Bundesliga and Ligue 1 – there is only one confirmed champion. A handful of relegations have been confirmed too but there is still a lot to play for in every league, making the final few weeks of the season extremely exciting.

Here is all the confirmed news from each league so far, as well as what could transpire over the coming weeks.

Premier League champions 2022/23

Recent Premier League title races have almost exclusively involved Manchester City and Liverpool, but this time Arsenal were top of the table for the majority of the season.

The Gunners have slipped up though and are now a point behind City having played a game more. It is City’s to lose, but Arsenal are still in the picture.

Premier League relegations 2022/23

  • Confirmed: Southampton

Southampton were the first team to drop out of the Premier League, their relegation confirmed with a 2-0 defeat to Fulham. Nottingham Forest have pulled away with the likes of Everton, Leeds and Leicester in greater danger.

La Liga champions 2022/23

The title in La Liga is not actually sewn up just yet but it would take a miracle for Barcelona to not be the champions come the end of the season.

Mathematically, three teams are in with a chance of victory, but the Blaugrana have a 13-point lead over second-placed Atletico Madrid with five games left to play.

La Liga relegations 2022/23

  • Confirmed: Elche

The relegation battle in La Liga is frankly ridiculous this season. One team is already confirmed as being relegated to the Segunda Division and that is Elche. They are sat on just 16 points, almost half of the team above them.

The entire bottom half of the table is either relegated or at mathematical risk, largely due to there still being five games left for each team to play. We’re taking the bottom eight as really being in the fight, as Osasuna and Sevilla are up to 44 points now.

Serie A champions 2022/23

  • Confirmed: Napoli

The only one of the top five leagues to have a confirmed champion at this stage is Serie A, with Napoli winning their first Scudetto in 33 years. The historic night was plastered all over the news and social media with the scenes all around the world wowing fans.

There was never really a title race in Italy with Napoli quickly taking control of the situation while other teams massively struggled for any consistency. They wrapped the league up with five games to spare and by Matchday 34, they had a 17-point lead over Juventus in second place.


Serie A relegations 2022/23

  • Confirmed: Sampdoria

Not only is the champion already decided, Serie A also has a relegated team.

Sampdoria suffered their first relegation in 12 years and there is a very real chance that worse is to come for the club.

They have a parasitic owner who remains a majority shareholder and the club is expected to be declared bankrupt this summer. Further relegations, be it on the pitch or in the courts, are very possible. As for the other two spots, there are four teams fully in the picture and another two who should be OK but are not safe yet.

Bundesliga champions 2022/23

There has been a thrilling title race to enjoy over the course of the Bundesliga season, the likes of which the league has not seen for many years. Bayern Munich may be at the top, but the matter is far from resolved.

While there was a time that five or six teams were properly in the picture, it appears to now be down to Bayern and Borussia Dortmund, with RB Leipzig eight points off the top and Union Berlin another point further back with just three games to play.

Bundesliga relegations 2022/23

As seems to be a theme in Europe this season, there are lots of teams in the Bundesliga who are still mathematically at risk of either going down to the 2.Bundesliga or ending up in the play-off place. Seven teams are in the fight and nobody is confirmed as down yet.

Some very big names could be going too, with Hertha Berlin looking in serious danger and Schalke potentially heading back down again.

Ligue 1 champions 2022/23

By this stage of the campaign, you would quite rightly expect Paris Saint-Germain to have won the Ligue 1 title. Not this year, though. The Parisian side have endured a particularly chaotic second half of the season, even by their own standards.

They should still be fine to win the title again, but they have come under fire from Lens and Marseille in recent weeks and the gap is not as conclusive as Christophe Galtier would like it to be with four games to play.

Ligue 1 relegations 2022/23

  • Confirmed: Angers, Ajaccio

Ligue 1 is currently in the process of moving towards an 18-team league, like the Bundesliga, meaning four teams must go down.

Luckily, some teams have been significantly worse than the rest and can have few complaints about their relegation.

Angers were the first side to be officially relegated and were soon joined by Ajaccio. Troyes’ exit from Ligue 1 will be confirmed soo, though mathematically they still have a chance of staying up.
