4. EUROPEAN RACES: Do or die for German and Spanish contenders

The losers of two 3-4 clashes on Saturday will probably fall from contention in their respective races: Real Madrid-Valencia in Spain and VfB Stuttgart-Bayern Munich in Germany.

Inter Milan and Lyon will get another chance to clinch the Italian and French league titles, respectively, but they'll have to do it on the road after putting a damper on celebrations at home on Wednesday night.
