Wednesday Betis (12th) v Valladolid (14th)Today's the day when the Beticos roll up their sleeves, scrunch up their eyes and endure a 90-minute long Chinese burn from the bully boys of the Spanish footballing authorities. Today's the day when they finally get around to playing their home away from home game in La Cartuja. Not such a bad deal considering the stadium is not that far away, has been painted in the last century and that Betis were able to choose when and how they wanted to take their punishment. But all this wasn't enough to stop the pint-sized Paco Chaparro moaning about the whole shebang. "It's possible that playing at La Cartuja could favour (Valladolid). I'm sure that 30,000 will be there," complained the man who definitely can't get no satisfaction.

AC Milan did what Inter should have done in the Milan derby: played like champions.That’s the general opinion of the Italian media after the Rossoneri spoilt their city rival’s title party on Sunday.A victory would have given the ever-increasingly moody and snappy, if that’s possible, Roberto Mancini and his merry men their 16th scudetto.Instead, not only was there no dancing in the street but the 2-1 scoreline in no way reflected how dominant Milan were throughout the 90 minutes.Turin-based Tuttosport couldn’t wait to twist the knife. “A day of fear,” warned their headline. “Inter blow the title wide open and the ghosts of 2002 are back.”This was, of course, a reference to how the Nerazzurri imploded in the final three games of the 2001-02 season and handed the title to Juventus in a 4-2 defeat at Lazio on the last day, which just happened to be May 5.However, this time around a home win against Siena, who have already secured their top-flight survival, next week will finally put the title beyond doubt no matter what AS Roma do as Inter’s head-to-head record between the sides is superior.
