You wouldn’t want to miss this weekend football actions in Europe as it promises to be engaging, entertaining and plenty of things to watch out for as the season gets older.
This weekend seems to be a very tough test for some top teams in Europe as the outcome of some fixtures could be a decisive factor to their season.
Let’s take you through some of the big fixtures this weekend and those teams who could possibly form more of the talking points.
1. Chelsea vs Norwich 12:30 pm.
First, let delve into England where the current European champions Chelsea host Norwich who is desperately in need of their first three-point of the season in the premier league.
Norwich knows they face an almost impossible mission when they get to Stamford Bridge at 12:30 pm.
Of course, one will agree that the Blues should cruise to victory comfortably but bear in mind that sometimes it could be deadly fighting a wounded and desperate person.
Chelsea will be without Lukaku and Timo Werner but will hope to do the business with Havertz upfront.
Thomas Tuchel’s men are top of the league with 19points in contrast to Norwich who sits bottom of the table with two points in 8games.
Will Norwich create an upset against Chelsea to record their first premier league win today? 90 minutes will be the decider.
2. Manchester United vs Liverpool.
On Sunday Man United will welcome a super flying Liverpool who is unbeaten in all competition this season.
Liverpool has scored at least three goals in their last seven away games this season and with a Man United team conceding recklessly, it will be fun to see how things turn out.
Meanwhile United will hope to build on their momentum of a perfect comeback against Atlanta in the champions league to further ease off the pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Liverpool’s 5-0 over Watford at Vicarage Road last weekend extends their unbeaten run in the league to eight (W5 D3 L0), leaving them in the second spot on 18 points.
Manchester United are in sixth place with 14 points after eight matches. Manchester United lost 4-2 at the King Power Stadium against Leicester City, extending their winless streak to three (W0 D1 L2).
3. Barcelona vs Real MADRID
Let travel to Spain the EL Clasico will go down at Camp Nou where Barcelona will be without Lionel Messi.
Real Madrid lost 2-1 to Espanyol in their last match putting them in second place on 17 points through eight matches.
While, Barcelona sit in seventh place with 15 points after eight matches. Barcelona won their last league game convincingly 3-1 at home against Valencia, extending their unbeaten run at home to five (W4 D1 L0).
Real Madrid got the better part of the last El Clasico winning 2-1 at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu last season. Since March 2019 Barcelona is yet to record a win against Madrid in four meetings.
Karim Benzema has been exceptional for the Los Blancos recently. He presently tops the league’s goal-scoring chart.
Memphis Depay has four goals in the league this season and could be a man to also watch out for in Barcelona.
4. Inter Milan vs Juventus
Juventus will hope to continue with their lately found form when they travel to San siro on Sunday.
Inter Milan got defeated by Lazio 3-1 in their last league game placing them third place on 17 points after eight matches.
While Juventus are seventh with 14 points.
Juventus was victorious in the last meeting of both teams so Inter will look to be on a revenge mission.
