Juventus, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Real Madrid all had reasons to celebrate this season

With the Bundesliga, Ligue 1, Premier League and LaLiga all coming to an end this weekend, we are slowly approaching the end of what has been an intriguing 2016-17 campaign.

Chelsea bounced back from last season's 10th-place finish to regain their crown, Real Madrid dethroned Barcelona for their first title since 2012, Monaco ended Paris Saint-Germain's hegemony in France, while Bayern Munich and Juventus continued their domestic dominance.

Although there is still one game to go in Serie A and there are a number of domestic cup finals on the cards in the weeks to come - with the Europa League and Champions League finals on the horizon as well - most teams are already done for the season and have started preparations for 2017-18.
