West Ham v Tottenham (Premier League)
League rankings: West Ham 15th & Tottenham 2nd
Useful facts: The Hammers’ terrible season in their new stadium, which has seen them win just one of their last six in front of their own fans, looks set to continue against this determined Spurs team that is on a nine-match winning streak and determined to lift the trophy this season. Furthermore, West Ham have won just two of their last six against Spurs, which makes anything but a win the likely outcome.

Barcelona v Villarreal (La Liga)
League rankings: Barcelona 1st & Villarreal 5th
Useful facts: In recent history, Barcelona have held complete dominance in this game, with four wins and two draws coming from their last six against the Yellow Submarine and with the title race likely to be decided by the smallest of margins, they cannot afford to slip up. However, Villarreal have won five of their last six and will present a tough challenge for the defending champions.

Chippa Utd v Ajax Cape Town (Absa Premiership)
League rankings: Chippa 13th & Ajax 10th
Useful facts: Chippa are on the worst run of form compared to any team in the league with no wins, three draws and five losses from their last eight league games, while Ajax have won only twice in that timeframe. With the Chilli Boys having won only one of their last seven league encounters against Ajax, it looks like they may have a serious relegation battle on their hands.

Atletico Madrid v Eibar (La Liga)
League rankings: Atletico 3rd & Eibar 8th
Useful facts: Atletico have won five of their last six against an overachieving Eibar side that is undefeated in four of their last six games in the league. However, Diego Simeone’s men have won eight of their last 10 La Liga games, keeping a clean sheet in five of their last seven. But, with a Champions League tie against Real Madrid on Tuesday, fatigue will have a role to play in this game.
