This Week Is Genuinely Every Sports Fan's Dream

This week is packed with sport goodness all over the shop, with a feast of football, boxing, MMA and rugby on the menu.

It all kicks off tonight as Chelsea host Manchester United at Stamford Bridge in the final FA Cup fifth round tie and the action continues from then on.

Tuesday's Champions League round of 16 action sees Liverpool-Bayern and Lyon-Barcelona in two of the most exciting knockout ties, before Schalke-Manchester City and Atletico-Juventus whets the appetite a day later.

Europa League round of 32 legs involving Arsenal and Chelsea take place on Thursday and then there's two Premier League encounters on Friday night: a televised London derby between West Ham and Fulham as well as Cardiff vs Watford.

Then business really picks up on the weekend. Barcelona travel to Sevilla in La Liga in daytime on Saturday and shortly after, England and Wales slug it out at the Millenium Stadium in the Six Nations.

Finish the day right with UFC Fight Night: Prague before watching James DeGale vs Chris Eubank trade blows over the IBO super middleweight title at the O2 Arena.

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City look to inflict more damage over Chelsea when they play at Wembley in the Carabao Cup final on 24 February - the same day as Manchester United host league leaders and bitter rivals Liverpool in the league at Old Trafford.

To round off a pretty stacked month of sport, we have the Copa Del Rey semi-final second leg between Barca and Real on 27 February - which is the second of three meeting in 25 days for Spanish football's big dogs.

Make sure life doesn't get in the way of our sport...
