VfB Stuttgart looks set to clinch its fifth German league title when it takes a two-point lead over Schalke 04 and a seven-game winning streak into its final game against Energie Cottbus on Saturday (TV: GolTV, live, 9:30 am ET).

Schalke must beat Arminia Bielefeld (TV: GolTV, delay, 11:30 am ET) and hope Energie Cottbus can win at Stuttgart to get its first Bundesliga championship. A Stuttgart tie would not be enough for Schalke unless it won by four or more goals against Bielefeld.

"If Stuttgart win an eighth successive game on Saturday, they will have earned the damned thing," conceded Schalke coach Mirko Slomka.

While Stuttgart got hot late in the season, Schalke stumbled with just 15 points in its last 10 matches. Stuttgart's last loss was on March 17 -- against Schalke, 1-0.

SPAIN. Real Madrid will look to continue its hot form when it travels to Recreativo Huelva on Sunday (TV: GolTV, live, 1 pm ET).

Madrid, which moved into a share of La Liga lead with defending champion Barcelona last weekend and has clinched the all-important tiebreaker, will be looking for its eighth win in its last nine games against Recre, which had stunned the Merengues, 3-0, in Madrid just before the Christmas break.

Madrid has the best away record in La Liga -- in sharp contrast to Barcelona, which goes into its game at Atletico Madrid on Sunday (TV: GolTV, live, 3 pm ET) with only two wins in its last 11 away games.

Real will cheering on Atletico, hoping its Madrid neighbor can continue its success against Barca. Atletico has three wins and two ties in its last five games against Barcelona.
