There is a more limited schedule in the Premier League this weekend. There are two games less on account of the Carling Cup Final on Sunday while Stoke and West Brom plays on Monday. There are also two games scheduled on Sunday.
That leaves us with Wolves against Blackpool; Aston Villa v Blackburn; Everton at home to Sunderland; Bolton are at Newcastle; Manchester United are away to Wigan.
The bookies were offering 6/1 on a Wigan win yesterday. The chances of an upset may largely depend on how lucky Sir Alex Ferguson feels and the strength of the team he sends out.
Wigan are in the midst of a tough run of fixtures and need to pull off a surprise or two. They came back to draw with Liverpool – can they pull off something similar again?
The biggest game in Europe today is 3rd place Bayern Munich taking on runaway Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund. This game gets underway three hours later than the normal Saturday kick off in Germany.
Both Barcelona and Real Madrid play today and both are away from home. Barcelona are at Mallorca while Real Madrid visits Deportivo La Coruna – a fixture that has rarely gone their way over the last number of years.
There is also Atletico Madrid at home to Sevilla – two sides that have spent a lot of time in reverse gear this season.
