SuperSport Utd v Kaizer Chiefs (Absa Premiership)
League rankings: SuperSport 5th & Chiefs 3rd
Useful facts: With just eight wins from their last 21 league games against SuperSport United in the league, Kaizer Chiefs will be going into this game with a monkey to shake off their backs, especially after Stuart Baxter’s men knocked them out of the Nedbank Cup last Saturday. Chiefs could see their league title hopes fade as well if this result doesn’t go their way.

VfL Wolfsburg v Bayern Munich (Bundesliga)
League rankings: Wolfsburg 14th & Bayern 1st
Useful facts: Wolfsburg have not won any of their last six ties against Bayern and have lost five of those. Furthermore, Bayern are undefeated in five of their last six Bundesliga games, while Wolfsburg have lost three in that timeframe.
Mike Mangena: Bayern Munich will win this one.
Real Madrid v Valencia (La Liga)
League rankings: Real Madrid 2nd & Valencia 12th
Useful facts: This game will be a real test of the title hopefuls’ steel, considering that they have won just once in their last six games against Valencia. Not counting the midweek game against Deportivo, they have won four of their last six, but any points dropped will likely cost them the title, so there’s no room for error.
Mike Mangena: Real Madrid
Espanyol v Barcelona (La Liga)
League rankings: Espanyol 9th & Barcelona 1st
Useful facts: Barcelona have won 11 of their last 13 La Liga games and are looking to retain their recently claimed top spot, following a midweek trip to Osasuna. Any slip-up will likely cost the Catalans any hopes of retaining their title, but they have won five of their last six games away from home to their Catalan rivals and will be confident of remaining at the top of the pile.
Mike Mangena: Barcelona
Everton v Chelsea (Premier League)
League rankings: Everton 6th & Chelsea 1st
Useful facts: A game which will truly test Antonio Conte’s men in their quest for the title, Everton have lost just once in their last six and have the chance to qualify for the Champions League. Furthermore, Everton have taken points off Chelsea in three of their last six encounters and have won four of the last six games between the two at Goodison Park.
