It’s now or never in European club football’s premier competition. Real Madrid, city rivals Atlético, Juventus and Monaco are all vying to reach this year’s final in Cardiff, but only two of these star-studded teams can go through when these second-leg ties kick off.

Take a figurative trip to sunny Spain this weekend for the fourth race of the new MotoGP TM season. The legendary Valentino Rossi has been setting the early pace alongside the amazingly named Maverick Viñales, while defending champion Marc Marquez needs a change of fortune if he wants to get back on track following an underwhelming start to the campaign.
Oh, Swansea. Once a seductive cocktail of sexy football and integrity off the pitch, things have been nothing short of dire for the Welsh side this season. Two points from safety with just three games to go, the Swans are in danger of nose-diving into the Sky Bet Championship if they don’t pick up a win against an Everton. As for the Toffees, it could be a sweet end to the campaign for Ronald Koeman’s men, who are flirting with a top-six finish.
If it’s lively football debate you want, then lively football debate you shall have! Join Jake Humphrey and his esteemed (not to mention opinionated) panel of studio guests straight after Swansea’s clash with Everton, as they analyse all of Saturday’s action from the top flight. From the big talking points to the things that may have slipped your attention, you’ll be brought right up to speed.
