Midweek TV Preview: 4 - 6 May 2010

(All times - UK)

Tuesday 4 May

19.00 Barcelona v Tenerife, La Liga, Sky Sports 2/HD2
Three wins in the last four have given Tenerife real hope of staying up - defeat here won't be the end of the world but they'll need to put in a good performance to maintain momentum.

19.45 Celtic v Rangers, SPL, Sky Sports 3/HD3
A chance for Celtic to salvage some pride or a chance for the champions to really rub it in.

21.00 Valencia v Xerez, La Liga, Sky Sports 2/HD2
The teams in the bottom three have turned things around a bit recently making the bottom half of the table incredibly tight. Xerez are bottom, though, and unlikely to escape.

Wednesday 5 May

19.30 Hamilton v St Mirren, SPL, ESPN/ESPN HD
St Mirren could use an extra point or two to put distance between them and the bottom two but haven't managed a goal against Academicals in their three games this season.

19.45 Motherwell v Hibernian, SPL, Sky Sports 3/HD3
Why is this on telly? Who cares?

20.00 Man City v Tottenham Hotspur, Premier League, Sky Sports 2/HD2
The last truly competitive match of the Premier League season is the fourth place play-off. City need to win to stand a chance of reaching the Champions League; a win for Spurs secures it for them. Probably the best match between now and the World Cup.

21.00 Real Mallorca v Real Madrid, La Liga, Sky Sports 4/HD4
A tough trip for Madrid - they need maximum points here but Mallorca are fighting to keep hold of fourth place. Madrid need maximum points from their last three games to hope to take the title - even then they'll be hoping Sevilla do them a favour next weekend.

Thursday 6 May

11.15 Rubin Kazan v Sibir Novosibirsk, Russian Premier League, ESPN
After eight games the Russian League is already a quarter of the way through. The champions have struggled in front of goal but are still unbeaten. Sibir managed just their first win of the season last time out and are rooted to the bottom.

15.45 Zenit St Peterburg v Spartak Nalchik, Russian Premier League, ESPN
Only goal difference separates these two at the top of the table with Spartak just edging it. Both sides are very tight in defence so don't expect a lot of goals. After this there'll be just two games until the mid-season break.
