Celta 0-3 Athletic (Raúl García 35 50, Rico)
Celta's hopes of ending the season on a high are fully focused on the UEFA Europa League after Eduardo Berizzo's men suffered a third consecutive defeat and fifth in six Liga outings. With the likes of Iago Aspas, Pione Sisto and Jonny left on the bench, the Galician side were undone by a pair of opportunistic strikes from Raúl García, the midfielder hitting his first Liga double since November 2013, before Mikel Rico rubbed salt into the wound.
Man. United 1-1 Swansea (Rooney 45+3pen; Sigurdsson 79)
United extended their unbeaten run in the Premier League to a single-season club-record 25 games (W13 D12) but failed to claim a home victory for the 11th time this term. Wayne Rooney struck for the second weekend running via a first-half spot kick, but the hosts were denied a crucial victory by Gylfi Sigurdsson's brilliant free-kick 11 minutes from time. José Mourinho's injury-ravaged squad suffered two more casualties with Luke Shaw and Eric Bailly withdrawn days before their semi-final opener.

Angers 1-2 Lyon (Ndoye 49; Valbuena 17, Fekir 41)
Lyon responded to back-to-back home Ligue 1 defeats with a narrow victory at the Coupe de France finalists. Mathieu Valbuena reacted quickest when Alexandre Letellier parried Maxime Gonalons' cross to give OL the lead, before Nabil Fekir's free-kick squeezed inside the near post to make it two. Cheikh Ndoye's header set up a nervous second half, though Angers' hopes of earning a point evaporated when Mateo Pavlović was dismissed in the 76th minute.
