An away victory for Arsenal will see them pull to a point away from Tottenham in the Premier League standings, while possibly causing a pile up in the race for Champions League qualification.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayern Munich
German Bundesliga – Round 24

We know who Borussia Dortmund and fans are rooting for in this tie.

For Bayern Munich to keep breathing down the necks of league leaders Borussia Dortmund, they will need a win at Monchengladbach.
With 2 defeats and a draw from their most recent matches; and RB Leipzig on their tail, Borussia Monchengladbach can’t afford a third consecutive home defeat in the league.


Angers vs Monaco
French Ligue 1 – Round 27

Monaco is unbeaten since the managerial return of Leonardo Jardim. 3 wins and a draw from their last four matches has helped Monaco to climb out of the relegation zone.

Angers will be looking for a win to bounce back from their shocking defeat to bottom table Guingamp in the last round that ended a run of 3 consecutive Ligue 1 victories.


Lazio vs Roma
Italian Serie A – Round 26
Derby della Capitale

Lazio hasn’t found success against Roma in their last 3 league meetings
; and this trend must change for Lazio if they want to cut Roma’s lead in the standings down to 3 points. As for Roma, win here could see them rise as high as 3rd in the league standings.
With 3 defeats and a draw from their most recent matches 4 matches and Roma having won all of their last four competitive matches, Roma is looking likely to get the win they need to push for a finish in a Champions League qualifying position at the end of the round.


Real Madrid vs Barcelona
Spanish La Liga – Round 26
El Clasico

Real Madrid must avoid two El Clasico defeats at the Bernabeu.
It could be two El Clasico defeats at the Bernabeu in a week for Real Madrid if they fail to make amend for the ‘5-1’ defeat to Barcelona in the first round of the La Liga season and the ‘3-0’ defeat in the Copa del Rey final that eliminated them from the competition.

Atletico Madrid will need a win against Real Sociedad to take advantage of this fixture.
Real Madrid will equal points accumulated by 2nd place city rival Atletico Madrid with a win.
For Barcelona, a point will do, but the team isn’t built for anything other than maximum points. A win for Barcelona would see them widen the gap in points between themselves and Real Madrid to 12 points, while at the very least maintaining their 7-point lead at the top of the La Liga league table.


Porto vs Benfica
Primeira Liga – Round 24
O Classico

Benfica will want the title back after Porto’s title win in the 2017/18 season denied them of their 5th consecutive title.

March 3, 2019
Fulham vs Chelsea
English Premier League – Round 29
West London Derby

What makes their match-up with Chelsea important (outside their West London rivalry) is that both teams are desperately trying to avoid falling below pre-season expectations.
The right results to survive Premier League for another season has not been coming for recently-promoted Fulham.
Fulham’s first test after the sacking of manager Claudio Ranieri will be taking on West London rival, Chelsea.


Stuttgart vs Hannover
German Bundesliga – Round 24

A relegation battle.

Everton vs Liverpool
English Premier League – Round 29
Merseyside Derby

Can Everton impact the title race with a Merseyside derby victory?

With just 10 matches left in the season, Liverpool doesn’t have enough in their lead at the top of the standings to afford to drop any point.


Real Sociedad vs Atletico Madrid
Spanish La Liga – Round 26

Real Sociedad is unbeaten in their last 10 competitive matches and has the backing of the home supporters. This is could be a tall order for Atletico Madrid to get the right result from this fixture to take full advantage of the results from this weekend’s El Clasico.


Napoli vs Juventus
Italian Serie A – Round 26

The worse outcome for Juventus will be losing their unbeaten run in the league.

At 13 points clear at the top of Serie A, Juventus has enough lead to see it through and defend their league title.

Valencia vs Athletic Club
