There are other interesting matches in Europe even though they will be overshadowed by the El Classico.

In England, the key matches are F.A cup fixtures. Chelsea plays Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday and Arsenal faces Manchester City.

Chelsea will really want to beat Tottenham to regain their belief and confidence. In addition and importantly, they want to send a strong signal to the team that is putting up a strong fight to usurp top spot in the EPL by stopping them from qualify for the final of the FA cup. For Arsenal, Wenger will again come under the spotlight. Disgruntled fans will again call for the head of Arsene Wenger. This is why Arsenal must win.
