The top two teams in Germany will collide on Saturday, exactly three weeks before their battle for the Champions League trophy at Wembley Stadium.

Bayern Munich have won a record 14 straight Bundesliga matches, but this year’s champions of Germany have not beaten Borussia Dortmund in league play in their last five tries. Both teams are coming off of UCL semifinal trips to Spain and the result will not have much of an impact on the league table, but members of both squads have indicated their desire to give themselves an edge before the big match on the 25th.

In England, rivals Tottenham and Arsenal look to put pressure on each other and Chelsea  in their matches against bottom-half clubs. Tottenham will host Southampton first on Saturday, a side that saw their hot streak come to an abrupt end last weekend. Arsenal face relegation locks Queens Park Rangers later in the day. Both sides will be looking for all three points to help them in the race for spots in next season’s Champions League.

Another intriguing Premier League matchup on Sunday features 16th-place Aston Villa and 14th-place Norwich City. Villa have made a dramatic late-season charge to get out of the relegation zone, and they look to increase the distance between themselves and Wigan Athletic with a win. Norwich have just one more point than Villa, so a loss at home to the Villans would put them in some peril heading into the final matches of the campaign.

The day’s action will wrap up with a pair of monumental matches from the final weekend of regular season action in Mexico. First-place Club America face second-place Tigres for the top spot in the league. America, who lead Tigres in goal differential, can clinch the Clausura with a draw or win. And just a few days after a comeback victory that secured their third straight CONCACAF Champions League title, Monterrey turn their attention to Saturday evening’s clash with Cruz Azul. If Monterrey draw or win, they will clinch a playoff spot in Liga MX.
