Graphic shows the title races in the top five leagues

Liverpool FC v Southampton FC - Premier League

Title races are really hotting up in leagues around Europe as we enter the crunch period of the season.

Well, in some leagues anyway.

In England, there will be no title excitement as Liverpool sit a massive 22 points clear of Manchester City.

It’s a similar story in France as they sit 12 points clear as they look on course for yet another Ligue 1 title.

But in Spain, Germany and Italy, it’s a completely different story.

Real Madrid and Barcelona are going head-to-head for La Liga glory, while Inter and Lazio are trying to stop Juventus cruising to another Serie A.

But it’s in Germany that we could see the most drama at the top of the table.

Bayern Munich are back on top but their lead over RB Leipzig is just one point. Two points further back sit Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Monchengladbach.

And now, an interesting graphic has been posted that helps illustrate the title races in each of the top five leagues.

In England, only Liverpool can be seen with the graphic only going back 15 points.

In Spain, eight sides are within 15 points of league leaders Real Madrid with Barcelona (-3), Getafe and Sevilla (-10), Valencia (-11), Atletico Madrid (-12) and Villarreal and Real Sociedad (-15).

In Germany, nine sides are visible after Bayern Munich with RB Leipzig (-1), Borussia Dortmund Borussia Monchengladbach (-3), Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke (-8), Hoffenheim (-9), Freiburg (-13) and Wolfsburg (-15).

In Italy, it’s very much a case of the top three and then the rest. Behind Juventus is Inter Milan (-3), Lazio (-5) and then a big gap to Atalanta and Roma (-15).

Over in France, PSG lead the way with Marseille their closest rivals (-12) and the Rennes (-15).

It’s also worth noting the number of points each league leader has racked up at this stage.

Liverpool are on an incredible 73, PSG are on 55, Juventus have picked up 54, Real Madrid are on 49 and Bayern Munich have 42.

The most competitive league in the world?

Well, it's certainly not the Premier League this season...
