Football Highlights of the Week

European action this week includes some top-level battles such as Inter against Roma and Lazio against AC Milan in Serie A, two highly interesting matches that will have a bearing not only on the championship winner but also on the teams who finish in the top four. 

Atalanta travel to Venezia and Napoli are away at Empoli and Juventus plays Sassuolo so they will hope to gain some ground on the others. In Germany, the late kick-off on Sunday sees the top rivalry between Bayern Munich and Dortmund with the Bavarians nine points ahead of their opponents who are themselves nine points ahead of third-placed RB Leipzig.

In France, PSG welcome Lens to the capital, Lyon take on Montpellier whilst last season’s winners Lille are up against Strasbourg. In Spain, Barcelona are up against Rayo Vallecano as the two teams are the only two left who still have matches left to catch up on following earlier postponements.

The highlight of the midweek action are the semi-finals of the Champions League, with Manchester City up against Real Madrid on Tuesday and Liverpool taking on Villareal on Wednesday in two eagerly anticipated ties. On Thursday it’s the turn of the Europa League and the Conference League with West Ham up against Eintracht Frankfurt and Rangers against RB Leipzig in the Europa and Feyenoord taking on Marseille and Leicester against Roma in the Conference League.
