The European season is just about over, but there are a handful of things to be settled over the next few weeks.
The inaugural champions of the UEFA Europa Conference League will be crowned on Wednesday. Finalists Roma and Feyenoord should both come in motivated to claim the inaugural crown. Roma, led by José Mourinho, has never celebrated European glory and Dutch side Feyenoord hasn’t since lifting the UEFA Cup two decades ago.
Another item to be settled is the German sides who are fighting for promotion or to stave off relegation.
Hamburg had never been relegated prior to its 2017-2018 campaign and has finished in fourth place (outside of the promotion playoff) in each season since. On Monday, Hamburg looks to close out a 1-0 lead over Hertha BSC to swap places in the German ranks, but its lead isn’t insurmountable.
Things are much more up in the air for the Bundesliga 2 fight between Dynamo Dresden and Kaiserslautern, which went scoreless in the first leg and resolves on Tuesday.
The U.S. Open Cup returns on Wednesday, and it’s down to the Round of 16.
A bonus installment of the Los Angeles rivalry headlines the action, where LAFC looks to avenge its 2-1 loss to LA Galaxy in MLS action on April 9. There are still a few USL teams in the mix looking to pull off a cupset, and perhaps no side is more qualified than league-leading Louisville City, which squares off with old rival Nashville SC.
