Premier League: Chelsea vs. Crystal Palace (live, Sunday, 8:30 a.m. ET)
Reasons to watch: This is the weekend that will be dominated by Chelsea and Jose Mourinho. The Blues' comeback win at Leicester means a victory against Palace will secure their first Premier League title in five years. Palace have lost their last two home games to weak opposition but their away form is excellent having won five of their last six games on the road. Only Arsenal can catch Chelsea but that would mean Arsene Wenger's men winning their remaining five games and praying for a catacylsmic collapse by the west Londoners (Source: Warren Barner, FOXSoccer.com).

Premier League: Leicester City vs. Newcastle United (live, Saturday, 7:45 a.m. ET)
Reasons to watch: It's squeaky bum time at St. James' Park where Newcastle fans have been showing their displeasure with owner Mike Ashley for the last few weeks for a couple of reasons. Firstly, they are unhappy that Ashley chose to keep profit in the coffers rather than strengthen the squad in January. The effect has been a seven-match losing run - their worst in 38 years which has left the Magpies perilously close to the drop zone. As for Leicester, their four-match winning run, which propelled City ouf of the relegation zone, came to an end against Chelsea. Should they win this one they will be just one point away from Newcastle, who will be hoping Sunderland don't go on another miraculous run like they did at the end of last season (Source: Warren Barner, FOXSoccer.com).

Premier League: Sunderland vs. Southampton (live, Saturday, 10 a.m. ET)
Reasons to watch: Sunderland boss Dick Advocaat has a big task on his hands. The Black Cats are a point adrift of safety after just one win in 10 games but on the plus side they face a Southampton team without influential midfielder Moragn Scheneiderlin, who has been ruled out for the rest of the season. However, with trips to Arsenal and Chelsea in their last two games the Black Cats will need to go on the same sensational run they did last year to beat the drop. Sunderland too seven poijts from games at Chelsea, Manchester United and City, buy with just five wins all season the odds are stacked against them escaping again (Source: Warren Barner, FOXSoccer.com).

Premier League: Liverpool vs. Queens Park Rangers (live, Saturday, 10 a.m. ET)
Reasons to watch: Liverpool's hopes of Champions League football virtually ended with the defeat at Hull. The Reds have just one point to show from their last three games and their nearest rivals Manchester United need just two victories from their last four games to secure a top-four finish -- and that's only if Liverpool win all of their remaining matches. QPR have four games left to save their skins but with three of those games away from home (Liverpool, Manchester City and a key clash with Leicester) the chances of beating the drop are slim. Five points from a possible 12 in their last four games have given the west Londoners hope but only wins will do from now on (Source: Warren Barner, FOXSoccer.com).

Premier League: Hull City vs. Arsenal (live, Monday, 3 p.m. ET)
Reasons to watch: Arsenal are the only team that can catch Chelsea now but in reality Arsene Wenger's men are hoping to finish runners-up for the first time in 10 years. The third-placed Gunners are level on points with Manchester City and face a Hull side many expected to go down a couple of weeks ago but successive wins against Crystal Palace and Liverpool have given them a great chance of beating the drop. However, with games against Arsenal, Burnley, Tottenham and Manchester United to come the Tigers are far from being out of the woods. Should be a fascinating contest (Source: Warren Barner, FOXSoccer.com).

La Liga: Cordoba vs. Barcelona (live, Saturday, 10 a.m. PT)
Reasons to watch: The La Liga leaders held their two-point lead over rival Real Madrid midweek after destroying Getafe 6-0 at the Camp Nou. Barca now take their 15-match unbeaten record -- 14 wins and a draw -- travel to basement boys Cordoba, which by all accounts should be a cakewalk. Blaugrana fans will surely be hopeful their side come away without any injuries or any lingering doubts ahead of their massive Champions League clash against Bayern Munich (Source: Sky Sports).

La Liga: Sevilla vs. Real Madrid (live, Saturday, 2 p.m. PT)
Reasons to watch: Real Madrid seem to have a far tougher task this weekend than Barcelona at fifth-placed Sevilla. The Rojiblancos are unbeaten in 15 games in all competitions ahead of Saturday night's clash at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. This is by far the biggest match in La Liga this weekend, a match that can ultimately decide how the title race will turn (Source: Sky Sports).
Reasons to watch: Bayern Munich have already been crowned champions and with their focus shifting to the Champions League semifinal tie with Barcelona next week, Bayer Leverkusen may be set to benefit from facing a weakened side on Saturday evening as they bid to climb back to third above Borussia Monchengladbach. The key here is Josep Guardiola's mindset. With a depleted Bayern Munich side, don't be surprised to see new faces get an opportunity to shine at BayArena (Source: Sky Sports).

Serie A: Sampdoria vs. Juventus (live, Saturday, 12 p.m. ET)
Reasons to watch: Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri has ordered his players to put next week's Champions League semifinal against Real Madrid to the back of their minds and concentrate on winning the Serie A title at Sampdoria. A single point from Juve's trip to the Marassi would cut Lazio out of the race for the Scudetto given the Bianconeri, boasting a superior head-to-head record, would be at least 12 points clear. It will not be easy, though, as Sampdoria are fighting for a place in Europe next season. (Source: Sky Sports).

Major League Soccer: New England Revolution vs. New York Red Bulls (live, Saturday, 7:30 p.m. ET)
Reasons to watch: While the New York Red Bulls are enjoying their longest unbeaten run to open a season, it's probably a stretch to say they've displayed the best form in the Eastern Conference. That distinction may belong to the New England Revolution, but the two conference finalists from a season ago have an opportunity to define things more clearly Saturday night at Gillette Stadium (Source: The Associated Press).
