The arrival of May means that the end of the season is just around the corner.

What will we do for two months???

Of course, even if European football ends for the biggest leagues, there are always games to watch from around the world.

Friday, the final few weeks of club football starts for leagues around Europe. But there is still plenty to play for, especially in the higher coefficient leagues with multiple UEFA bids up for stake.

In Germany, RB Leipzig has locked up a UEFA Champions League place for next season, and has the DFB Pokal final to look forward to on May 25.  Leipzig will want to head into that contest against Bayern Munich in good form, while also resting some players. Friday, Leipzig will take on Mainz 05, a team it beat 4-1 in December.

Mainz has lost 10 of its last 13 matches, while Leipzig has won seven matches in a row.

The La Liga race for the fourth UEFA Champions League spot is dead even: Getafe and Sevilla both have 55 points.

Sevilla gets its chance Friday to strike first, with a match against 13th place Leganes. Sevilla has won four of six, while Leganes comes in without a win in five matches.
