With Chelsea playing like a pub side and outside the Top 4 to Leicester winning the Premier League, this season has been an awesome roller-coaster ride. And there are more magical (and heartbreaking) moments to come.

Here are five footballing stories that will be decided in the next 30 days.

1 | Premier League Destiny Awaits
Middlesbrough and Brighton clash in the final game of the Championship, as two promotion hopefuls face off. The winner will be automatically promoted and reap the £100m rewards that come with being a Premier League team, while the other will have to go again in the play-offs.

2 | North London Rivalry
Often considered the biggest rivalry in England, Arsenal still have the chance to move ahead of Tottenham in the league, despite Spurs having had their best ever season. Injuries, suspensions and a mental breakdown could be their undoing.

3 | Klopp Taking on Europe
Who would want to miss the flamboyant German in action, and there's no doubt he will be up to his usual touchline antics at the Europa League final in Basel. Jürgen Klopp's Reds will need another dazzling display at St. Jakob-Park to win silverware this season.

4 | North-East Relegation Scrap
Another huge rivalry as Newcastle and Sunderland both clamber to avoid the drop. Neither manager has experienced relegation, but at least one of them will do soon. It doesn't get much tighter than this with one point separating the north east sides.

5 | Battle for La Liga
One point separates three teams in one of the closest La Liga campaigns there has ever been. Barcelona looked unbeatable earlier this season but could end the year without a trophy as their champions status is pushed to the end by both Madrid teams.
