Following a hectic last week in England that saw many sides feature twice in just a matter of days due to FA Cup and midweek league action, the Premier League returns with a real feast.
Manchester City take on Chelsea with a place at the top of the Premier League at stake, whilst further north, a resurgent Newcastle United take on bitter foes Sunderland.
In Spain, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid are all in action. A win could take either of the three sides to the summit of La Liga, depending on how the others get on, of course.
A short trip across the Mediterranean sees Serie A leaders Juventus look to extend their lead at the top of the table when they host a struggling Inter.
Inter's great rivals Milan, which are also struggling in ninth place, are in action this weekend. Like Inter, Clarence Seedorf takes the Rossoneri to Turin and will face Torino in the hope of reviving their season.
