April's Football Fixtures Are An Absolute Dream

April's Football Fixtures Are An Absolute Dream

It might be April Fool's Day but when it comes to football the month of April won't be treating us like fools, instead the next month promises to deliver some hugely important games, especially in the Champions League, Bundesliga and Premier League.

Huddersfield Town's relegation on Saturday was shockingly early, only the second time in the Premier League's history a club's gone down before the end of March, but it did officially kick off the 'Business End' of the season.

On Tuesday Fulham could follow the Terriers as the next team to head back to the Championship, if they lose to Watford, leaving an intriguing battle to stay away from the final relegation spot.

Liverpool's late win against Spurs on Sunday took them back to the top of the table with Manchester City's game in hand coming against Cardiff City on Wednesday.

It threatens to be a very exciting end of the season in the Premier League but it's not just over here where the excitement is about to kick off an April's fixtures are looking pretty juicy.
