10 Clubs Who Could Be Crowned Champions If Leagues End Now

Click through the gallery above to see the league champions if Europe's major leagues ended today.

UEFA met on Tuesday for an emergency meeting with all stakeholders to discuss a way forward amid the coronavirus crisis.

At the meeting, stakeholders made several resolutions, among them the decision to postpone the 2020 European Championship to 2021 as well as "a commitment to complete all domestic and European club competitions by 30 June at the latest".

"I've saw and heard some again fake news that UEFA will advise leagues to finish the championships now and decide that the winners are the ones who are number one now," UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.

"I can say that it's not true. Our goal is to finish the leagues, and we didn't recommend anything like that to any association or any league."

At this stage, no one knows if resuming play will be an option in two to four weeks' time. If the situation does not improve, handing out league titles to the current leaders might be the only solution other than calling the season null and void.

In England, Liverpool lead the Premier League table by 25 points, and need just six more points to secure their first title in 30 years.

The Reds have collected 82 points from 29 games, losing just once and drawing once in the league. As such, they would celebrate their 19th league title if the season was ended at this point due to the coronavirus.

In Spain, FC Barcelona have climbed back to the top of the table, and would receive their ninth title in the past 12 years if the LaLiga season ended today. Barcelona have 58 points after 27 games, two more than second-placed Real Madrid.

Over in Germany, Bayern Munich would celebrate their eighth successive title, having four points more than Borussia Dortmund at this stage, while Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain would also continue their domestic dominance in their respective leagues.

Juventus, who just one point more than second-placed Lazio, would lift their ninth consecutive title, while PSG would claim their seventh Ligue 1 trophy in eight years.
