Four matches to watch this weekend

Leicester vs. Swansea City @ King Power Stadium @4:15pm on April 24

Five points ahead with four games to go – the Foxes have their own destiny firmly in their hands but Tottenham are waiting to pounce on any further slips. The major question this weekend will be if Claudio Rainieri can get his team to take all three points from Swansea in the absence of Jaime Vardy. The Swans are safe for another season and that could de-motivate the team from Wales.

Fiorentina vs. Juventus @Stadio Artemio Franchi @7:45pm on April 24

At the beginning of the season, Fiorentina looked like major challengers for the Scudetto but they seem to have fallen off the rails. The teams chasing Juventus will be praying for an off-day for the defending champions when they visit Artemio Franchi, but that does not look like a prayer that will be answered.

Vallecano vs. Real Madrid @Estadio del Rayo Vallecano @3pm on April 23

At the beginning of April, Real Madrid were looking to offload Cristiano Ronaldo and find a replacement for Zinedine Zidane but one Clasico win and a return from the dead performance against Wolfsburg has got everyone buzzing. Though nothing has been won, no one can discount Los Blancos from winning a major trophy this season. But Vallecano are precariously placed and need all the points they can muster to stay safe and will be motivated and looking to revenge for the 10-2 loss suffered earlier this season.

Akwa United vs. Enyimba @Akwa Ibom Stadium @4pm on April 24

After seeing off the threat of Etoile du Sahel, Enyimba need to start putting points on the board in the local league but their hosts also have designs on the top of the table with which three points will draw them closer to the leaders. This match has always been one settled by the odd goal and that should make for a very exciting spectacle.
