Premier League: Arsenal vs. Chelsea (live, Sunday, 11 a.m. ET)
Reasons to watch: The Premier League is reaching it climax and this is one of the games that will either settle or prolong the Blues’ title march. The scenario is that if Chelsea triumph in this London battle they will need just one more win to secure their first championship in five years. It’s asking too much for the Gunners to catch Jose Mourinho’s men but victory would be a giant step towards automatic qualification for next year’s UEFA Champions League.

Bundesliga: Bayern Munich vs. Hertha Berlin (live, Saturday, 12:30 p.m. ET)
Reasons to watch: Bayern Munich, fresh from their brutal UEFA Champions League win against Porto will effectively wrap up their 25th Bundesliga title with victory against Hertha Berlin. Bayern are 12 points clear with five games to go but such is the superiority of their goal difference that even a win for Wolfsburg would not be enough to give them a chance of winning the title. The mathematicians will argue it would not be technically over but we know it is. Should Wolfsburg not match Bayern’s result then there’s no need to do any math because Josep Guardioloa’s men will have it in the bag.

La Liga: Celta Vigo vs. Real Madrid (live, Sunday, 3 p.m. ET)
Reasons to watch: Los Blancos are riding on cloud nine after Wednesday’s thrilling win over Atletico but the pressure doesn't fade away just yet. The Spanish Primera title is still up for grabs, and with only two points separating them from arch-rival Barcelona, Real cannot afford to lose any ground. Los Merengues have lost two of their last three meetings at the Estadio de Balaídos, so tension will be high for Real Madrid fans.

Premier League: Everton vs. Manchester United (live, Sunday, 8:30 a.m. ET)
Reasons to watch: The race is on for the runners-up spot in the Barclays Premier league and United are bang, smack in the middle of it. The Red Devils’ six-match winning run came to an end at Stamford Bridge last weekend but most pundits agreed that United showed more adventure than the Londoners and were unlucky to lose. Louis van Gaal takes his troops to Everton with a revitalized team inspired by the resurgent Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini but wary they have lost their last two visits to Goodison Park.

Premier League: Burnley vs. Leicester City (live, Saturday, 10 a.m. ET)
Reasons to watch: The battle for the title may be over but a thrilling fight at the bottom of the Barclays Premier League resumes with a crucial game at Turf Moor. Burnley have emerged from a horrible run of fixtures with a fighting chance of beating the drop even though they prop up the rest of the 19 teams. Should Burnley beat in-form Leicester they could be out of the relegation zone., although that would depend on Hull and Sunderland losing at Crystal Palace and Stoke, respectively.

Premier League: Manchester City vs. Aston Villa (live, Sunday, 12:30 p.m. ET)
Reasons to watch: City bounced back after suffering two successive defeats, hammering West Ham 2-0 at the Etihad last Sunday. The chase for the fourth and last Champions League spot is now first priority at the Etihad after a disastrous March and April. Aston Villa will not be an easy opponent but City have dominated this fixture as of late, winning 20 times to Villa’s seven.

La Liga: Atletico Madrid vs. Elche (live, Saturday, 12 p.m. ET)
Reasons to watch: After a disappointing midweek loss to arch-rival Real Madrid, Los Colchoneros must now switch gears and focus on La Liga if it’s to earn a direct qualification spot for next season’s UEFA Champions League. With a top two finish out of reach, the defending Spanish champions currently sit in third place and host an Elche side that’s hungry for its third straight La Liga win. No easy task for Diego Simeone and Co. to say the least.

La Liga: Espanyol vs. Barcelona (live, Saturday, 10 a.m. ET)
Reasons to watch: It’s the Barcelona derby this weekend as a fascinating fight for La Liga resumes in Spain. Barca, two points clear of arch-rivals Real Madrid, visit neighbors Espanyol, with both sides in decent form. Luis Enrique’s men are unbeaten in eight matches, while Espanyol haven’t lost in six. Barcelona will be in confident mood having dispatched PSG with ease in the quarterfinals of the Champions League and safe in the knowledge they have won their last six encounters against Espanyol. We're in for an early Saturday morning treat.

Serie A: Torino vs. Juventus (live, Sunday, 9 a.m. ET)
Reasons to watch: Juventus are on a high after reaching the UEFA Champions League semifinal but there could be cause for a double celebration this weekend. The Bianconeri, like Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga, could be crowned champions if results go their way. Juve would need to win at Torino, who are on a four-match unbeaten run, and both Lazio and Roma would have to lose their respective games against Chievo and Inter Milan. Those results would leave Juventus 18 points clear with six games to go and effectively a 31st Scudetto would be in their grasp -- 13 more than arch-rivals AC Milan and Internazionale.

Major League Soccer: Seattle Sounders vs. Portland Timbers (live, FOX Sports 1, Sunday, 6:30 p.m. ET)
Reasons to watch: The weekend ends with a derby match worthy of any league in the world. This tussle for Pacific Northwest supremacy is the first of three meetings between the two sides. These battles are always fraught with tension palpable at every turn. Seattle enters the game in better form, but the Sounders must compensate for the suspended Chad Marshall in central defense in order to claim maximum points.
