The first day of the month will see the Merseyside derby, Schalke v Dortmund, PSG v Monaco and Benfica v Porto played – and this is not an April fool.

Then a day later, Ajax take on fierce rivals Feyenoord in Holland.
Just a week after their derby at Schalke, Dortmund travel to take on Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on the same day as the Madrid derby.
April 23 will see the pick of the month’s fixtures as Real Madrid host Barcelona in El Clasico, while Chelsea take on Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-final the day before.
And as if Borussia Dortmund didn’t have enough derbies to play in April, they make a second trip on April 26 to Munich to take on Bayern in the DFB Pokal semi.
The Premier League picks up the mantle to end the month, with the Manchester United travelling to rivals City in a rare Thursday night kick-off.
Tottenham and Arsenal then play the last ever North London derby at White Hart Lane, on the final day of April.
The Gunners are finding it tougher than ever to finish above their rivals for a 22nd consecutive season and will likely need a win at the soon-to-be demolished stadium.
