Top Upcoming Football Events in May 2024

The biggest events in May 2024 will be the matches in the Champions League and Europa League. Also, there are two major upcoming EPL games which could determine the winner of the trophy. It will feature Tottenham on both occasions against Man City and Arsenal. 
The Champions League semi-finals are already up for grabs. We will see four teams competing for the ultimate title. Dortmund, PSG, Bayern and Real Madrid are the ones you can follow. Make sure to check the upcoming predictions and reviews below:
As everything has been decided already, the only thing remaining is the list of the Champions League participants. Here are the most interesting matches remaining for the upcoming May.

Major Football Fixtures Upcoming in May 2024


UEFA Champions League

We have already listed the main remaining tournaments, but there are top European leagues left as well. Make sure that you have a look at the competitions below in more detail.
We have already concluded April Sport Events and there were plenty of interesting matches. Below you will be able to explore football themed events as well as get an idea about the upcoming football events.

Real Madrid vs Bayern

Kylian Mbappé will probably leave PSG at the end of the season and even the President of France won’t be able to persuade him to stay. Therefore, it is his last chance to leave a legacy that no one can match in Paris.
Fiorentina, alongside Aston Villa, could be one of the main title contenders. They lost the final in the previous year against West Ham and will be determined to seek revenge. I think that against Brugge they are clear favourites. Nico Gonzalez and Jonathan Ikone can pose a real threat against the Belgian side. Expect a fairy performance from the Italians in this match. 

PSG vs Dortmund

Both Marseille and Atalanta have slim chances of qualifying for the Champions League directly from their domestic competitions. Hence it will be a great opportunity to get in the final and tackle their opponents. 
On the football events calendar the major events will undoubtedly be the NBA playoffs and Champions League knockouts. Don’t forget to follow each encounter in more detail.
Numerous experts and analysts expected a different pair during this stage. However, both PSG and Dortmund managed to beat their counterparts. The second leg will be the most important one and we will see how Mbappé and Co. will deal with their opponents.

UEFA Europa League

As the 2023-2024 football season gradually nears the end, the competitions are hitting their climax. Domestic tournaments in top European countries will end soon and the top-tier Champions League, Europa League and Conference League are also coming to a close. 
Marseille have more European experience compared to Atalanta. However, the Bergamasci defeated Liverpool in two matches and they will have loads of motivation in this encounter.Chances seem to be 50/50 in this matchup. 

Roma vs Leverkusen

On one of the rarest occasions, Inter managed to beat Milan and win the Scudetto. They had a fanatics performance throughout the whole season and what yet remains to be decided is the spot for European competitors. Here is a list of football prediction and tips:

Marseille vs Atalanta

Aston Villa have a rare opportunity to qualify for the Champions League with their fourth place in the Premier League. However, under Unai Emery, a specialist in the Europa League, they will be looking forward to more. I expect the Lions to have an upper edge in this pair. 

Conference League

The clash between Real and Bayern has become an all-time classic. While Bayern have had a difficult season and surrendered the championship title in the Bundesliga, Thomas Tuchel knows how to win trophies in the Champions League, making this a match to follow.

Aston Villa vs Olympiacos

2024 in association football has been a perfect year due to Bayer Leverkusen. Under Xabi Alonso, they have done the impossible – not losing a single game during this campaign. 

Fiorentina vs Brugge

Under Daniele De Rossi Roma managed to bounce back and they are one of the main contenders to qualify for a  Champions League spot. However, doing it against Leverkusen will be a tough task as the German side have not lost for 46 matches in a row. Added to that they were able to score in the last minutes. I think that they are capable of advancing to the final – even against the much-improved Romans.

Upcoming Football Matches

Real Madrid might seem the heavy favourites at first glance but Bayern won’t give up easily. Depending on how the first leg ends, we will see who has the best chances to progress. Harry Kane is still on his way to get his first club trophy in his career. On the other hand, Real Madrid will be looking to extend their record as Champions League champions. This game could go both ways, being one of the most anticipated games of the season. 


It is not yet clear what will be the initial lineup for these teams in the second leg. Nevertheless, I don’t think that we will have everything clarified in the first match between these sides. However, PSG have a slight advantage.
