Pub customers will have the chance to see four teams whittled down to two in the FA Cup this weekend, as well as some top-of-the-table European matches.

Football: Chelsea v Tottenham (Saturday, 5.15pm) - BBC 1

The Premier League's top two clubs lock horns in the weekend's opening FA Cup tie. The game is on terrestrial television, making it available to all pubs with a TV licence, and takes place early Saturday evening. It represents a great chance for licensees to get their Saturday evening going early.

Football: Arsenal v Manchester City (Sunday, 3pm) - BT Sport 1

The second semi-final will see another two of the Premier League's high flyers look to book their place in May's FA Cup final. Both Arsenal and Manchester City's form has stuttered over recent months, but both sides will pull out all the stops to win this match and go on to round off their season with a Wembley final.

Football: Real Madrid v Barcelona (Sunday, 7.45pm) - Sky Sports 1

Sunday nights are usually a comparatively quiet time for pubs, but not so this weekend. One of the most anticipated matches will see Barcelona look to close the gap on league leaders and bitter rivals Real Madrid.

Football: Lyon v Monaco (Sunday, 8pm) - BT Sport 1

European football is the gift that keeps giving this Sunday evening. Monaco will have their work cut out to hold on to their tight lead at the top of France’s Ligue 1 against a Lyon side that has had a very impressive season and currently resides in fourth place.
