🏒 3:00: Dallas Stars vs. Vegas Golden Knights, Game 3 of the NHL Western Conference Finals
Mystery: Is Dallas on the verge of disaster?
“Nothing is lost in a playoff series if you haven’t lost at home,” goes the popular cliché. Going 0-2 after away games is not a catastrophic option, but it is extremely offensive for Dallas. The Stars successfully played the hold for most of Game 2, but Vegas moved the game to win overtime with just a moment in half an hour. In home games, Dallas should ignite not only the Robertson-Hinz-Pavelski trio, which already scores most of the team’s goals.

🏀 3:30: Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics Playoffs – NBA Eastern Conference Finals Game 4
Intrigue: Will there be another 4-0 in the conference finals, will the Heat repeat the Nuggets’ success?
Boston Celtics head coach Joe Mazzulla admitted after the third game, “I couldn’t communicate.” Most likely, the specialist will hold the last game as the Celtics’ helmsman in the event of his team’s elimination from the Eastern Conference Finals. Still, the expectations were the same as last year, at least the NBA Finals. Can the 34-year-old handle the pressure and help Boston win its first series?

🥊 15:00: Nikita Tszyu – Benjamin Bomber, boxing
Intrigue: Can Nikita Tszyu knock out the undefeated Bomber?
The third boxer in the legendary Tszyu family continues to run towards the championship belts. Nikita Tszyu, playing under the Australian flag, will fight his undefeated compatriot Benjamin Bomber. Tszyu Jr. is known by the nickname The Butcher and is always loaded with a knockout, but will he be able to take down the opponent ahead of schedule? A beautiful victory will definitely take Nikita to the title.
Announcement of the next match:
Tszyu vs Bomber undefeated. Kostya’s youngest son is not looking for simple ways.
⚽️ 8:30 p.m.: Real Madrid-Rayo Vallecano, La Liga, Matchday 36
Intrigue: “Real” lost even the second place in the championship.
Will it be possible to save the season without Vinicius in the squad? The main topic related to Real Madrid in recent days is the racist scandal in the match against Valencia. The ‘bats’ fans insulted Real Madrid winger Vinicius, then, during a brawl at the end of the game, Hugo Duro grabbed him by the neck. Subsequently, the Brazilian hit the Valencia player, and referee Ricardo De Burgos Bengoechea sent the Brazilian off the field. “Real” lost, lost the second place “Atletico”. And the scandal in Spain does not subside even on the third day.
La Real without Vinicius on the next day will play with Rayo Vallecano. In the first round, Madrid lost and won the previous two home games by just one goal difference. But right now Rayo doesn’t need anything in LaLiga. But Ancelotti would not hurt to save the season: third place in La Liga and relegation with a score of 1:5 in the semifinals of the Champions League – this is too much for Real Madrid.

⚽️ 22:00: Final Fiorentina-Internazionale Coppa Italia
Mystery: the finalists of the European Cup will compete for the Italian Cup.
An interesting situation developed before the Italian Cup final. A rare case when both clubs participate in the decisive matches of the European competition. Inter reached the final of the Champions League, Fiorentina – the Conference League. The teams have the opportunity to please themselves with the Italian Cup. Inter won the trophy last season, Fiorentina have not won since 2001. In total, the Milanese collection has eight Cups, while the Violets have six. Both clubs made a good move towards the end of the season, so the final will be hot.

⚽️ 10:00 p.m.: Brighton & Hove Albion – Manchester City, Premier League, Matchday 32
Mystery: Will Brighton play in the Europa League for the first time ever? Or will Haaland improve his goalscoring record?
Brighton vs. City is worth watching at least for the quality of the football. Even though the “citizens” have already clinched the championship, the game carries various intrigues. First of all, if Brighton scores at least one point, the team will play the Europa League for the first time in history. The Seagulls have already clinched at least the Conference League, but getting into a tournament with a higher rank is great motivation. As part of City, Erling Haaland can increase his own record. The Norwegian previously surpassed the achievements of Andy Cole and Alan Shearer by scoring the most goals in a single season. Haaland stopped at 36 goals, but he has two games ahead. So the striker can come out even stronger.

⚽️ 11:00 p.m.: Espanyol – Atlético, League, Matchday 36
Intrigue: Will Espanyol fly out of LaLiga?
Espanyol and Atlético solve problems at different poles of the table. The ‘Mattress’ fights with the ‘Real’ for the silver of the Spanish championship, and the Catalans are thinking about how to stay in the Example. The next game is one of Espanyol’s last chances to get out of the bottom of the table. The team is one point behind the savior in 17th place. Winning will greatly increase the chances of a positive result. Atlético is also motivated to win and keep Real Madrid out of second place. There is not a big difference between the second and the third line, but this is a matter of principle between historical rivals. We are waiting for the battle in Barcelona.
