All roads lead to Seville this Wednesday as the Andalusian city prepares to host its third major European final, the last of which saw Scottish giants Celtic lose to Porto back in 2003.
Lying four points behind leaders Manchester City with two matches remaining, Liverpool need a victory at Southampton to keep their Premier League title hopes alive.
Arsenal go into their penultimate match knowing that two victories will guarantee them UEFA Champions League football next season. They lie in fifth place, two points behind Tottenham Hotspur, who earned a 1-0 win at home to relegation-threatened Burnley on Sunday.
Now far removed from the nightmare of starting the league season with seven losses, Getafe stand just a point away from extending their five-season La Liga (LL) stay.
These are nervous times for Cádiz, who are two points clear of the La Liga (LL) relegation zone with two games remaining following Thursday’s 3-0 hammering by Real Sociedad.
An away victory would leave Manchester City within a point of winning their eighth top-flight title, their sixth in the Premier League, and their fourth in the last five seasons.
A home win would lift Tottenham Hotspur two points above Arsenal into fourth place, and lay down a marker for their north London rivals, who visit Newcastle United on Monday evening.
A whole 150 years since the very first FA Cup final, Liverpool and Chelsea return to Wembley Stadium for a high-stakes rematch. With this being only the second time the same teams have contested both English finals in a single season, EFL Cup winners Liverpool can ‘do the double’ over their fellow heavyweights, and thus draw level with the ‘Blues’ on eight FA Cups, while also avenging a 2-1 defeat to them in the final a decade ago.
Victory for Arsenal would secure fourth place, their highest Premier League finish since the 2015/16 campaign, when they finished second. It would also be the first time since that campaign that they have finished above Tottenham Hotspur.
Manchester City have kept a clean sheet in their last five Premier League away matches. Only three sides have ever kept more than five consecutively in the Premier League: Chelsea (seven in a row, 2008), Manchester United (seven in 2008/09) and Liverpool (six in 2014/15).
