The sound of birds singing, the early morning dew hanging in the air along with clouds and the promise of rainbows. Then, suddenly, sunshine and a perfect blue sky! It just has to be an April morning. The weather in April is as diverse as the number of sporting events that wait to greet us. STATSCORE brings a review of some of the most important upcoming events this month.
Champions League – all football fans are already waiting for the quarter-finals, where there are some great matches, like Tottenham vs Machester City and Manchester United vs FC Barcelona. Will we see more of the “Ole’s at the wheel” effect? What’s more, on the last day of April, teams will be playing the first leg of the semi-finals.

In the shadow of the Champions League, there will be Europa League quarter-finals played, but there are also some good matches to be seen. The top one seems to be Arsenal vs Napoli. Both teams are the big favourites to win the trophy.
In April we will find out the participants of this year’s FA Cup Final. The semifinals will be played on the 6th and 7th April.
Two more races are waiting for motor-sport fans. The best drivers in the world will compete in China and Azerbaijan. The first race in Australia was won by Valeri Bottas, the second in Bahrain – by Lewis Hamilton after engine problems of Charles Leclerc. There was no shortage of emotion. Who will be next to take the highest step on the podium? Hamilton or Bottas again or maybe someone else?

20th April will bring the start of snooker’s most important ranking tournament – The World Championship. Mark Selby recently lost the number 1 spot in the Rankings, a position he had held from 2015, but he still has a chance to come back. Mark Williams will be defending the title won in 2018. After all, the Crucible Curse does not apply to him.
Another sport has its most important tournament in April. Yes, we are talking about Table Tennis. The World Table Tennis Championship is a Global sporting event and includes five categories: men’s singles and doubles, women’s singles and doubles, mixed doubles. The Championship will take place in Budapest and it will last from 21th to 28th April 2019.
At the end of the month on the 28th April, we will be witnessing a massive annual event for athletes – professional and amateur alike – The Virgin Money London Marathon. This is one of six Major Marathon events that take place around the world. This year a new world record is being set – there will be 414 168 participants.
