    06/04, Serie A, Juventus v AC Milan

    In the Italian game, it doesn’t get much bigger than this, with these two old foes sharing significant honours hauls—both domestically and in the continent—for decades.

    These days, the teams’ fortunes are completely different; Juve sit atop Serie A—again—on 75 points and cruising to another title, while Milan are still battling for a UCL spot.

    They were defeated 3-2 by their eternal rivals Internazionale recently, and will be desperate to avoid another high-profile loss.

    07/04, FA Cup semi-final, Brighton v Man City

    As Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City go in search of a breathtaking quadruple, they will surely feel that the FA Cup is their most attainable prize.

    With Manchester United having been eliminated by Wolverhampton Wanderers at the quarter-final stage, and the other heavyweights all falling earlier in the competition, City’s pathway to silverware is opening.

    However, they’ll be aware that Chris Hughton’s Brighton—who have already defeated United this season—are capable of springing a surprise.

    10/04, UCL, Man Utd v Barcelona

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has finally been appointed Man United coach on a permanent basis, and what better way to celebrate his reign than by guiding the Red Devils to their fourth European crown.

    Fanciful, perhaps, but stranger things have happened, and after their heroic come-from-behind triumph against Paris Saint-Germain, United may feel that anything is possible.

    14/04, PL, Liverpool v Chelsea

    Liverpool can begin to count on one hand the major hurdles that stand between them and a first title in 30 years, with only Manchester City standing in their way. 

    Chelsea’s visit to Anfield could prove decisive in the context of the title battle, although the visitors would surely love to dent the title ambitions of their old rivals!

    17/04, UCL, Man City v Spurs

    Tottenham are out of the title race after losing three—and winning none—of their last four games, and may now have an opportunity to divert their attentions to the UCL.

    They’ll rue the quarter-final draw, however, as they missed the likes of FC Porto and Ajax, and instead set up a double-date with City.

    It’s a major challenge for the Lilywhites, but could they be quietly confident that—with City battling hard on so many fronts—they have a golden opportunity?

    17/04, PSL, Sundowns v Supersport

    This clash has been rearranged, due to Downs' ongoing continental commitments, and this will be yet another obstacle for them to negotiate as they look to clinch the domestic title.

    SuperSport, who were fifth after 24 games, aren’t entirely out of the running either, and the gap between that and the leaders might have already closed by the time this clash comes around.

    21/04, La Liga, Real Madrid v Athletic Bilbao

    Zinedine Zidane is back at the helm, following the failures of Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari, although he has his work cut out to restore Real to their former glory.

    This kind of fixture, against a tricky Bilbao side, is exactly the sort of contest where they might have come unstuck earlier in the campaign.

    Will they flake again, or can Zizou prove that he’s instilled in this current group a bit of the steel they demonstrated in the past?

    24/04, PL, Man Utd v Man City

    April promises to be a massive month for United, who have a double-header with Barcelona, and meetings with both City and Chelsea.

    This should be a typically feisty Manchester derby, although Red Devils fans may find themselves conflicted, with a win potentially taking the title that bit closer to bitter rivals Liverpool,

    28/04, PL, Man Utd v Chelsea

    Just how decisive could this match be in the battle for the top four?

    Out of Arsenal, Chelsea, United, and potentially even Spurs, two will miss out on UCL qualification next season, and the race is set to be intense right up until the finish line.

    Only one point separates these two sides with eight games to go, but considering Chelsea’s recent form—they’ve won just one of their last three—could United be out of sight by the time this clash rolls around?
