RB Leipzig vs Borussia Dortmund (German Bundesliga)
They finish 2nd and 3rd last season and are currently separated by just a victory (three points) in the Bundesliga league standings. Both teams have the UEFA Europa league route to claim a place in the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League, but finishing top-four in the league seems like the shortest way to get to their goal. Borussia Dortmund currently sits 2nd in the league with 41 points and have yet to suffer a defeat in 2018. After a defeat at home to bottom table FC Koln, RB Leipzig seems to be falling down the league table and form with consecutive defeats in the league and consecutive home defeats in all competitions. Form and home advantage will tip Bayern Munich as favorites in this match, but RB Leipzig has what it takes to contend with the best of German football.
Lazio vs Juventus (Italian Serie A)
Lazio did the improbable in the first half of the season when they took maximum points against Juventus at the Allianz Stadium. A home victory and a league double against Juventus could help Lazio could help add another ‘horse’ to the ‘two-horse’ race in the Italian Serie A.
A postponed fixture has kept Juventus four points away from the top of the Italian Serie A table. With a match in hand, the objective for Juventus is to keep on winning and intensify the pressure on league leaders Napoli.
Napoli vs Roma (Italian Serie A)
Napoli has done everything right in 26 matches to be in the position to break Juventus title winning streak in the Italian Serie A. Their next text will be a visit from the capital, when Roma comes to Naples with objectives to get back into the top-four and avoid successive defeats in the league.
AC Milan vs Inter Milan (Italian Serie A)
Derby della Madonnina
They share a stadium, so there isn’t a home advantage in this fixture.
It is a Milan Derby, and Inter Milan is looking to keep themselves in the top-four by seeking maximum points in this fixture.
Despite being 7 points behind their city rivals, AC Milan is in a great form, 5 consecutive victories in all competitions and undefeated since their home defeat to Atalanta on December 23, 2017.
Manchester City vs Chelsea (English Premier League)
Last season’s champions will travel to try and slow down the team that is looking likely to be their successor. Chelsea will be hoping to return the favor and defeat Manchester City in their home. Chelsea needs this victory to avoid falling further away from a UCL direct qualification spot in the league.
The home team remains favorite in this fixture, as Manchester City has created enough gap in points at the top of the league table to be under the pressure to win this match.
Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid (Spanish La Liga)
Barcelona’s failure to get a victory against Las Palmas has increased the value of this fixture. An Atletico Madrid away victory will cut Barcelona’s the lead at the top of the table to just 2-points, making the race to the title the league title the tightest it has been since the start of the season.
Barcelona remains undefeated after 26 league matches. It will take something special for Atletico Madrid to get the ideal result from this match.
