The 2022-23 campaign has reached its climax across many parts of Europe and it didn’t disappoint.

Some all-time legends waved goodbye, title races went right down to the wire, and Manchester City and Manchester United treated us to an absorbing FA Cup final at Wembley.

Here are 15 things we loved from the weekend’s action.

Jack Grealish

The very essence of Grealish.

Pep Guardiola

Channelling his inner Pardew.

John Stones

Ice cold.

Mark Goldbridge


This guy

There he is.

Toby Alderweireld

That’s how to win a title.

Barcelona Femeni

Five-goal thriller.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Zlatan until the very end.

Karim Benzema

Scoring with his final touch for Real Madrid. Sounds about right.

Riccardo Saponara

Ridiculous strike.

Hany Mukhtar

Making absolute fools out of these defenders.

These scenes

What, you weren’t watching Independiente Rivadavia v Deportivo Maipu in the Argentinian second division?

Graeme Souness

We have a feeling he’s going to enjoy his post-pundit life.

These fans

Take us there.

This island

No, actually, take us here.
