Three Premier League matches featuring England’s top teams highlight Wednesday’s soccer action.
Manchester City hosts Wigan Athletic, with both sides needing to win for different reasons. City wants to keep their title hopes alive, while Wigan needs to win to get themselves out of the relegation zone, where they currently sit in 18th place. Both sides should be wary of each other, as the two will meet again in the FA Cup Final on May 11.
Manchester United takes on West Ham United, while Chelsea visits Fulham in a vital London derby for Rafael Benitez’s men as they look to keep a top-four place.
Meanwhile, in France, Italy, and Germany, Cup matches are in play on Wednesday.
Three months after their first-leg victory, AS Roma travels north to take on struggling Inter Milan in the Coppa Italia semifinals. A victory for Michael Bradley’s squad could set up an all-Rome final, with Lazio having already qualified for the final with a win over Juventus.
Finally, in the evening, Copa Libertadores and an international friendly between Mexico and Peru take center stage.
