If you’re concerned about how you’re going to fill your time this weekend now the Premier League is over you really shouldn’t be.

Aside from the FA Cup there are a load of massive cup finals taking place across Europe featuring some of the biggest teams on the continent. Here’s a look at the other games worth looking out for…

Hibernian v Rangers  Scottish Championship

Scottish Cup final Rangers vs Hibernian – Saturday, 3pm

Rangers have the opportunity to win a third piece of silverware this season when they take on Hibernian at Hampden Park. Next season Gers will return to the Scottish Premier League but they could also enter the Europa League courtesy of a win against Hibs.

It will be the sixth meeting between the sides this season with Rangers having won three times and lost twice. Alan Stubbs’ side missed out on promotion from the Scottish Championship but a win in the cup would still mark the season out as one to remember.

FBL-GER-BUNDESLIGA-BAYERN-MUNICH-HANOVER

German Cup final Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund – Saturday, 7pm

Pep Guardiola has the opportunity to bid farewell to Bayern Munich by completing a domestic league and cup double for the second time in three seasons at the Bavarian club. Unfortunately Borussia Dortmund stand in his way.

Thomas Tuchel’s side are Bayern’s closest competitors in Germany and a side genuinely capable of upsetting their dominance thanks to the talents of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Marco Reus and the outgoing Mats Hummels, among others.

The occasion shouldn’t get to Dortmund – this is their third consecutive appearance in the final, but Bayern have won the competition a record 17 times and will be eager to end the Guardiola era on a high.

AC Milan v Juventus FC  Serie A

Italian Cup final Milan vs Juventus – Saturday, 7:45pm

In 2003 these sides met in the Champions League final with Milan coming out on top after a penalty shootout. Now, though, the Rossoneri, seven-time European Cup winners, are facing up to a third season without European football if they cannot stop Juventus from completing a second consecutive league and cup double.

For Juve, who have won Serie A five times in a row and are easily Italy’s best team right now, this should be a straightforward game but Milan will hope to conjure the spirit of past glories and win their first silverware since 2011.

But the Bianconeri have won 29 of their last 32 domestic games and both meetings against Milan in Serie A this season, making them big favourites to come out on top in Rome.

Sevilla FC v FC Barcelona  La Liga

Spanish Cup final Barcelona vs Sevilla – Saturday, 8:30pm

A side of Barcelona’s stature measures their success by progress in the Champions League and having been knocked out at the quarter-final stage they will regard this season as a disappointment even if they do complete a league and cup double at the Vicente Calderon.

By contrast Sevilla will regard the season as a big triumph having won the Europa League for the third season in a row and the fifth time in 11 years. The chance to add a domestic cup is merely a bonus for Unai Emery’s team, although a very nice one that they will take seriously.

When the sides met in the UEFA Super Cup in August, Barca won 5-4 after extra-time. If this game even comes close to that one it is not worth missing.
