The seasons in Europe are two months away from ending and after the FIFA Date, the key moments to define the championships begin. Moments in which the European positions and the teams that will fall in the main leagues of the world will be determined.

More than one Mexican footballer in the Old Continent will have something to fight with their respective teams in April and May.

'Chucky' Lozano and Erick Gutiérrez

PSV could practically define the Eredivisie in their favor this coming Sunday, March 31, against Ajax. The 'Farmers' are leaders with 67 points and in case of win vs. the Amsterdam team, the squad of Mark Van Bommel would take eight points of advantage on the second place (Ajax) if they lose those directed by Erik ten Hag would be two units from the team where Hirving Lozano and Erick Gutiérrez play.

Héctor Herrera and 'Tecatito' Corona

Porto is tied with Benfica at the top of the Portuguese League with 63 points, but by the goals difference, the Blue Dragons are in second place. This Saturday, March 30, Sergio Conceição's team will play against Braga, who is in third place in the general standings. If the squad of Herrera and "Tecatito" loses in this game, Braga will approach Porto by two points. On the other hand, Benfica will play on Sunday, March 31, against Feirense, where Antonio Briseño plays.

Diego Lainez and Andrés Guardado

Real Betis needs to go back to the path of victory to keep aspiring to European standings since at the moment is four points from the sixth place in La Liga. This Sunday, March 31 will play against Rayo Vallecano.

Diego Reyes, Araujo, and Moreno

Celta de Vigo, Néstor Araujo's team, is in the relegation zone of the Spanish League. The 'Celestes' will have a crucial game this Saturday when they host Villarreal, who is their direct rival in the fight for non-relegation, if the team of Araujo takes the victory they will be at one point of safeguard places.

On the other hand, Hector Moreno's Real Sociedad is 9 points away from the relegation zone and is still not insured. Diego Reyes' Leganés is in a similar situation as it is eight units from the area that would make them lose the category.

Raúl Jiménez

Wolverhampton's no longer fighting in the Premier League, but Raúl Jiménez hopes to continue in good form since next April 7 he will play the FA Cup semifinals against Watford where the Mexican forward hopes to score to help his team get the ticket to the final

'Chicharito' Hernández

After his excellent performance in the last game of the 'Hammers' Javier Hernández will seek to sustain that level when they host Everton this weekend. West Ham is 16 points from European positions, so it sounds very complicated that Pellegrini could achieve this task.
