The season is almost over but we still have time to squeeze in a couple more Power Rankings.

Here are the most in-form teams in Europe right now.

10. Atalanta (🆕)

The top four race in Italy is superb but Atalanta are the standout performers right now. Unbeaten in 10, winning eight, they’ve put themselves second and in the driving seat with just two games remaining.

Champions League, here they come, maybe.

9. Sporting (🆕)

Champions of Portugal for the first time since 2002 AND two games away from an unbeaten league campaign, we had to show Sporting some love.

They’ve won 14 of their last 18  league matches to seal the title despite being under some intense pressure with Porto long unbeaten. Congratulations to the new champions!

8. Ajax (🆕)

Another season, another glorious success. Ajax are champions of the Netherlands for the 35th time.

Unbeaten in 21 league games (and they’ve won 17 of those), this looks like Erik ten Hag’s best Ajax side since the team that reached the 2019 Champions League semi-finals.

7. Borussia Dortmund (👍 Last week: 8)

Dortmund are on by far their best run of the season and last weekend’s statement win over RB Leipzig came without top scorer Erling Haaland. Now up to fourth having won five league games in a row, they’ve done a lot of the hard part.

And they could win their first trophy since 2017 on Thursday evening.

6. Lille (👍 Last week: 10)

There have been a couple of bumps in the road from time to time but Lille are back in top form as the Ligue 1 title race comes to a head.

Five wins from their last six, and three in a row, have them three points clear with just two games remaining. Can they clinch the title?

5. Manchester United (👍 Last week: 7)

With Champions League football secured, a weakened Manchester United side lost to Leicester in midweek, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would have been prepared for as much after rotating his team.

It was just a second defeat in 29 league games and United remain on course to finish second as they prepare for the Europa League final.

4. Bayern Munich (👍 Last week: 5)

Talk about celebrating in style. Bayern clinched a ninth consecutive Bundesliga title before kicking a ball on Saturday, then put six past Borussia Mönchengladbach for good measure.

3. Chelsea (👌 Last week: 3)

Oh, Chelsea. FA Cup finalists, Champions League finalists, winners against Manchester City. Our top spot was up for grabs for the Blues until they lost to Arsenal on Wednesday evening.

Still, even then the Blues largely dominated proceedings. Coming from behind is something they might have to work on but they continue to look very strong.

2. Manchester City (👎 Last week: 1)

Premier League champions, we can’t take that away from them! But we couldn’t keep them in top spot, not after they lost to Chelsea at the weekend and had to wait for Leicester to get the title over the line for them.

City have been the best side in Europe over the course of the whole season, they just don’t look like the most in-form right now.

1. Inter (👍 Last week: 2)

And it’s a return to top spot for Inter, who are not at all letting up after clinching the Serie A title.

The last week brought eight goals and two wins against Sampdoria and Roma, even as Antonio Conte rotated his players. The champions of Italy look formidable.
