Brace yourself for an exhilarating nine days of non-stop high-quality football on SuperSport. The race for Premier League, DStv Premiership and Spanish LaLiga glory continue. Our selection of matches starts this Saturday with the FA Cup going all the way to 28 April with a cash that could potentially end the title race for the Gunners.


Saturday 20 April

18:15 Manchester City v Chelsea, live on SS PL channel 203

FA Cup holders Manchester City will face Chelsea in the semifinals at Wembley. Man City are unbeaten in their last eight meetings with Chelsea in all competitions (W6 D2), though both games between the sides in the Premier League this season have been drawn.

Chelsea have been eliminated from the five of their last seven FA Cup ties against Manchester City, including in the third-round last season. However, they did beat the Citizens 1-0 the last time they played them in the semifinal of the competition (2020-21).

Sunday 21 April

21:00 Barcelona v Real Madrid, live on SS LaLiga channel 204

It’s El Clasico – the biggest rivalry in club football. More spicey this time as Barcelona and in the shadow of their bitter rivals but will hope to throw a spanner in the works or at least delay Real Madrid’s title charge.

Real Madrid have won their last three meetings with Barcelona in all competitions, including two this season. On only four previous occasions have Real Madrid won three El Clásico games in a single campaign, the last time in 2012/13 under José Mourinho (G6 W3 D2 L1).

Monday 22 April

AC Milan v Inter Milan

After a century of rivalry, the Milan derby rekindles this season with high stakes looming over Monday's showdown. Following a weekend where both teams settled for draws in their separate fixtures, a victory for Inter Milan would secure them the Serie A crown once again, following Napoli's triumph in 2022/23. Monday offers Inter the opportunity to clinch the Serie A title anew, but victory is imperative for them to achieve this feat.

Tuesday 23 April

Arsenal have lost just one of their last eight Premier League games against Chelsea (W5 D2), while their current four-game unbeaten run is their longest against the Blues in the league since a 19-game streak between 1995 and 2005.
