The Premier League kicked off last weekend, but we've still got a whole lot still to go around the continent - with La Liga, Serie A and the Bundesliga all getting ready to fire into action. 

While we wait for kickoff, a motley trio of 90min editors got together to put together some predictions for the rest of Europe's top five leagues - and the Champions League! We've cheated a little bit with Ligue 1, obviously...
