KingFut’s Mostafa Soliman recommends the most important upcoming fixtures for our readers this week in his fifth installment of the new series.

This week is a special one, everyone is getting ready for the final round of the group stage of the in addition to the Europa League. The European leagues matches may be not too exciting this weekend but the will certainly make up for that.

Saturday

Borussia Dortmund vs.  Bayern Leverkusen – Bundesliga – 19:30  Cairo time

Another competitive match for Dortmund who are looking to regain 2nd position in the league table, which was claimed by Leverkusen last week after Dortmund loss against Bayern Munchen. Aside from the big loss against Manchester United in the UEFA Champions league a fortnight ago, Leverkusen are having a good season and are going to be a tough opponent at the Signal Iduna Park.

Sunday

Roma vs.  Fiorentina – Serie A  – 14:30 Cairo time

Roma aim to go back to their winning ways after four consequent draws, which led to them losing eight points and the top spot of the table which is now occupied by Juventus. Fiorentina, who are still without the injured Ahmed Hegazy, will try to get closer to the Champions League places with the help of the league top scorer Rossi, who is enjoying fantastic form this season scoring 12 goals in 14 appearances.

Arsenal vs.  Everton – English Premier League  – 18:00 Cairo time

Arsenal continue to move in the right direction towards its first league title in 10 years after 14 weeks have passed. However, Arsenal has to improve its record against ‘strong opponents’ and Everton can be considered one of them now. Last week was a happy one for Everton fans who claimed a hard point against Liverpool after drawing 3-3 in a very exciting match and later achieving a historic win against Manchester United at Old Trafford. They hope that these performances will continue against the league leaders.

Monday

Swansea  vs.  Hull City – English Premier League  – 22:00 Cairo time

The Egyptian fans are still waiting for Gedo’s first goal in the BPL. Gedo is close to regaining his previous form but he still has a lot to do to fit into the most competitive league in the world. Hull, who are having a good season, will be looking for another win to extend their distance from the relegation zone. If  Hull could maintain the same level of performance like against Liverpool, they may be able to sneak into the Europa League next season.

Tuesday

Galatasaray vs. Juventus – UEFA Champions League –  21:45 Cairo time

Juventus will be looking for a draw to qualify to the next round but it will not be easy to achieve that in Turkey against one of the most excited fans in Europe, who will be supporting their team until the last minute of the match.

Wednesday

Schalke vs. Basel – UEFA Champions League –  21:45 Cairo time

The most important match for the Egyptian fans this week who hope to see their stars qualifying to the next round of the UEFA Champions League. Basel only need a draw and they hope to benefit from their high spirits after beating Chelsea in the previous match.

Marseille vs. Dortmund – UEFA Champions League –  21:45 Cairo time

Marseille has nothing to play for unlike their opponents who will try to do anything to get the three points. A win at Marseille should be enough for Dortmund to qualify, however the result depends on other match between Napoli and Arsenal.

Napoli vs. Arsenal – UEFA Champions League –  21:45 Cairo time

Only a draw will satisfy Arsenal as it will guarantee the first place of this competitive group. However, Napoli will be looking for the three points to keep their chances alive of surviving in the ‘Group of Death’.

Milan vs. Ajax – UEFA Champions League –  21:45 Cairo time

Ajax got valuable three points against Barcelona in the last round which keeps their chances of reaching the round of 16 alive, but they need to beat Milan at San Siro – who will be looking for a draw to qualify beside Barcelona. It wont be easy to beat Milan at home but Ajax have no other option.
