[EUROPEAN RACES] Manchester United, Barcelona and Inter Milan all clinched their respective league titles on Saturday without winning a game. In close races, Wolfsburg (Germany), Bordeaux (France) and Rangers (Scotland) have opened up leads in their respective leagues.

ENGLAND. Manchester United tied Liverpool's record with its 18th English league title -- and their third in a row -- thanks to its 0-0 draw at home against Arsenal. The game may have been the last for Argentine star Carlos Tevez, who has played for United on loan.

FRANCE. Defending champion Lyon's bid for an eighth straight Ligue 1 title may be over, but it had a big impact on the title race, beating Marseille, 3-1, in Marseilles, allowing Bordeaux to make a step toward its first title in 10 years with a 3-2 home victory against Le Mans that left it three points in front with two games left.

Standings
TEAM W T L GF GA P
Bordeaux 22 8 6 62 34 74
Marseille 20 11 5 61 34 71

GERMANY. Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko's hat trick -- his second in four matches -- highlighted Wolfsburg's 5-0 win at Hannover 96 that left it with two-point lead with one match left. Defending champion Bayern Munich had to settle for a 2-2 draw against Hoffenheim, while VfB Stuttgart beat Energie Cottbus, 2-0, to join Bayern two points behind Wolfsburg.

Standings
TEAM W T L GF GA P
Wolfsburg 20 6 7 75 40 66
Bay. Munich 19 7 7 69 41 64
Stuttgart 19 7 7 62 41 64
Her. Berlin 19 6 8 48 37 63

ITALY. Inter Milan won its 17th Serie A title -- and fourth in a row --  second-place AC Milan fell, 2-1, at Udinese. Inter's 3-0 win over Siena on Sunday left it with a 10-point lead with two games to play.

SCOTLAND. Rangers can end Celtic's three-year reign as league champion with a win at Dundee United next Sunday. Rangers opened up a two-point lead when it beat Aberdeen, 2-1, and Celtic, which had the edge on goal difference, was held to a 0-0 draw at Hibernian.

Standings
TEAM W T L GF GA P
Rangers 25 8 4 74 28 83
Celtic 24 9 4 80 33 81

SPAIN. Barcelona won its 19th La Liga title when second-place and defending champion Real Madrid lost at Villarreal, 3-2, on Saturday. The result allowed Barca coach Pep Guardiola to field a second-string team at Real Mallorca -- 2-1 loss -- on Sunday and rest his starters for the UEFA Champions League final against United on May 27.
