Tottenham Hotspur go on the road to face Stoke City this morning, with major Champions League ramifications on the line.
Spurs must take all six points available in their last two matches if they stand any chance of qualifying for next season’s Champions League. Stoke City have suffered a run of poor form in the league as of late, recording only two victories in their last ten matches.
In Spain, Barcelona will travel to the Estadio Vicente Calderón to face Atlético Madrid. Following Espanyol’s 1-1 draw with Real Madrid on Saturday, Barcelona have mathematically won the Spanish league, becoming champions for the 22nd time in their illustrious history. The Catalan giants managed to stay atop the La Liga table from start to finish of the season, becoming the first Spanish team in 25 years to win the title after leading for every week of the season.
In France, Paris St. Germain can clinch the Ligue 1 title with a win vs. third-place Lyon. Carlo Ancelotti has been linked to a move to Real Madrid, and he could head to Spain with another trophy on his impressive resume if Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Co. can deliver a win on the road.
In Italy, Roma is still holding out hope for a Europa League place, and while they can secure one with a victory in the Coppa Italia final, they can draw closer to one of the automatic Serie A spots with a win against an AC Milan side still trying to hold on to the final UEFA Champions League spot.
