England

Manchester City could move against Liverpool again in the Premier League title race when they visit Wolverhampton. City, the defending champion, is tied on points with Liverpool but has a game in hand. After Wednesday, the title contenders will only have two more league games left.

Relegation-threatened Leeds host Chelsea in a match that could be difficult for visitors. Thomas Tuchel’s third-placed side look certain to secure a place in the Champions League and are also looking forward to the FA Cup final against Liverpool on Saturday.

Everton will try to clear space between themselves and the bottom three when they face relegated Watford. Leicester host Norwich, who are also relegated.

Spain

Sevilla and Atletico Madrid can settle the Champions League spots with victories in La Liga matches. Seville hosts Mallorca, which is threatened with relegation, and visits Atlético Elche. Third-placed Sevilla could have a seven-point lead over fifth-placed Real Betis, with two rounds remaining. The city rival kept his chances alive by beating Valencia 3-0 on Tuesday.
