On Wednesday, February 27, 2019,
Real Madrid vs Barcelona
Copa del Rey (Second-Leg)
Real Madrid and Barcelona will meet at the Bernabeu for second-leg of the Copa del Rey semifinal. Considering that the ‘1-1’ draw in the first-leg as an ‘away-goal’ advantage; and home advantage in the second-leg, Real Madrid might enjoy a slight advantage in this tie. But when we factor in the abilities of Barcelona, this tie is wide open.

Chelsea vs Tottenham
English Premier League – Round 28
A win for Chelsea could help with any suspected internal issues with the club.
Currently 10 points behind Tottenham in the league standings and with a match in hand, Chelsea will be helping to tighten the race for Champions League football for next season if they make home advantage count and secure the maximum points against a Tottenham side that is coming into the match on the back of a shocking defeat to Burnley.

Feyenoord vs Ajax
KNVB Cup – Semi final
To get their third Cup title in 4 years, Feyenoord must get past Ajax to book a date in the final to defend their title.

 

On Saturday, March 2, 2019
Tottenham vs Arsenal
English Premier League – Round 29
North London Derby

After Chelsea, Tottenham will take on another London rival.
Tottenham will be hoping to come into the match with at the very least the 7 points they currently have on Arsenal in the league standings.
If Arsenal should manage to get a win at home against Bournemouth on Wednesday (February 27, 2019), then a win in this fixture will be a major boost on their fight to return to the Champions League football.

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.

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 will equal points accumulated by 2nd place city rival Atletico Madrid with a win.
Atletico Madrid will need a win against Real Sociedad to take advantage of this fixture.
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. Real Madrid must give a reply for the ‘5-1’ thrashing they received in the earlier meets of the two.

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.

Fulham vs Chelsea
English Premier League – Round 29
West London Derby
The results to survive Premier League for another season is not coming for recently-promoted Fulham.

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.

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.
