Here is your weekly update to the battle going on at the bottom end of the table…
German Bundesliga – Bottom 2: Freiburg (22), Stuttgart (19) – 16th Place: Paderborn (23) – In Battle: Hamburg (24), Hertha Berlin (24), Koln (25), Mainz (25), Hannover (27), and Dortmund (28)
CHANGES – Dortmund are almost out of the battle as they keep on winning. Paderborn is dropping as Hertha Berlin got a huge win to take them out of the bottom 3 spots.
French Ligue 1 – Bottom 3: Toulouse (29), Lens (22), Metz (22) – In Battle: Evian Thonon Gaillard (29), Lorient (31), Stade de Reims (32), Bastia (33), Nice (34), Caen (34), and Stade Rennes (31)
CHANGES – Stade Rennes is no longer listed following their big win over Lens. Bastia and Nice joined the list as they both suffered defeats. Evian jumped out but just barely as they won and Toulouse drew. While it might be to late for Metz and Lens, the last spot is really up for grabs.
Italian Serie A – Bottom 3: Cagliari (20), Cesena (19), Parma (10) – In Battle: Atalanta (23), and Chievo Verona (24)
CHANGES – Verona are no longer listed as they now sit 8 points above the relegation zone following win over Cagliari.
Spanish Liga BBVA – Bottom 3: Levante (22), Granada (19), Cordoba (18) – In Battle: Elche(23), Almeria(24), Deportivo La Coruna (25), Eibar (27), Real Sociedad (27)
CHANGES – Levante jumped up above Granada as the search for safety. Real Sociedad and Eibar have joined the list as they now sit just 5 points above safety.
English Premier League – Bottom 3: Burnley (22), Aston Villa (22), Leicester City (18) – In Battle: QPR (22), Sunderland (25), Hull (26), Everton (28)
CHANGES – Crystal Palace and West Brom are both no longer listed following big wins this last weekend. Everton are above the 5 point mark that I have been using but I am leaving on the list based on recent form. A win this week would take them off.
