Five Huge Football Matches This Weekend 21/4 - 22/4
It’s a huge weekend with El Clasico in Spain, while big clashes in England, Italy and Germany with Dortmund hoping to clinch the Bundesliga title.
Sports Pundit’s Game of the Weekend
Spanish La Liga, Saturday 7pm (CET)
It’s time for this season’s El Clasico with Barcelona taking on Real Madrid. Barca have cut the gap back substantially at the top in recent months, after it slipped out to 10 points. Now only four points separate the two sides who both lost in the Uefa Champions League in midweek. This game could prove decisive in the title race. If Real win or draw it’s all over, but if they lose it’s on.
English Premier League, 12.45pm (CET)
The two London clubs meet at Emirates Stadium in Saturday’s early kickoff with both sides hoping to seal their place in next season’s Uefa Champions League. Arsenal look firm in third spot with a five point buffer on fourth-placed Tottenham, while Chelsea, down in sixth, are a further two points back. The Blues beat Barcelona in midweek in a boost, but all that defending may have made them tired.
Borussia Dortmund v Borussia Moenchengladbach
German Bundesliga, Saturday 5.30pm (CET)
If all goes according to plan for Jurgen Klopp’s side, they will claim the German title on Saturday evening. BVB play host to fourth-placed Moenchengladbach, who have been out of sorts of late. Dortmund are eight points clear with three games to play, so a victory here will complete the job and have them celebrating. That’ll be worth tuning in for.
English Premier League, Sunday 12.30pm (CET)
The Red Devils can edge even closer to the title on Sunday when they play host to David Moyes’ Everton, but the Toffees can be a danger side for United and are in form, typically in the second-half of the season. United can move eight points clear with victory here, while Manchester City play later on Sunday evening away to bottom-placed Wolverhampton.
Italian Serie a, Sunday 7.45pm (CET)
Juve’s spectacular unbeaten season continues in Sunday’s late kickoff where they take on the tricky AS Roma. The Romans are down in fifth but hopeful of making the top three, which equals Champions League qualification. The three points here are crucial for them, but beating Juve in Serie A hasn’t been done all season and they remain top of the division by a point and will be very much keen to maintain their lead.
