The races across Europe for UEFA Champions League places next season are almost as important as the race for league titles, with teams desperately vying for the valuable income that comes with those precious qualification places.
The race in Serie A is as intense as any other, with four teams within six points of the fourth and final place in the Serie A standings. Napoli and Udinese are currently tied on points for fourth place and they face off on Sunday with a chance to put a stranglehold on the spot. Both teams saw their European tournament hopes erased last week, with Napoli falling to Chelsea in dramatic fashion in Champions League, and Udinese losing to Jozy Altidore's AZ Alkmaar in Europa League.
Athletic Bilbao has similar Champions League aspirations, and could move into a tie with current La Liga fourth-place side Malaga with a win against third-place Valencia and a Malaga loss to first-place Real Madrid.
Chelsea and Liverpool will look to book places into the FA Cup semifinals, with the Blues taking on Leicester City and the Reds taking on 2011 FA Cup finalist Stoke City.
