Three up front: 31/03/12

The best succinct one-liner we’ve ever heard came from the mouth of English comedian Les Dawson, and it is one that son-in-laws the world over can relate to: “I can always tell when the mother-in-law’s coming to stay – the mice throw themselves on the traps.” As sometimes it’s best to get straight to the point, today’s previews have a certain direct quality about them.

1) Liga: Barcelona vs Athletic Bilbao, 22.00 CET/16.00 EST

If brilliant Basque blitzers Bilbao can replicate their mind-blowing Europa League form, and allowing for awful alliteration, this match could become the must-see fixture in world football this weekend.

2) Ligue 1: Nancy vs PSG, 21.00 CET/15.00 EST

PSG fans are beginning to realise that pesky leaders Montpellier, the Kim Kardashian of the French top flight, are just not going to go away, so capturing three points in Lorraine today is essential.

3) Bundesliga: Hertha Berlin vs Wolfsburg, 18.30 CET/12.30 EST

Hertha may have shipped six goals to Bayern a fortnight ago, but everybody’s doing that at the moment, so they’ll look to continue the form they showed at Mainz last week in their increasingly desperate attempts to avoid playing at Duisburg next season.

Duisburg: somebody somewhere loves it
