With only one month left until the World Cup, there is still quite a lot of club football remaining to be played this year. Unsure which matches from the top 5 leagues to watch over the weekend? Read our article below!
|Chelsea vs Man Utd
Two teams in good form, this Chelsea versus Manchester United football match announces itself to be a great fixture! Even though Chelsea are coming after a draw against Brentford, they have won 4 consecutive games before that, while Man Utd beat 3rd placed Spurs on Wednesday. Graham versus ten Haag also sounds like a very interesting clash, as the two managers have done a very good job this season.
|Barcelona vs Athletic
Even though we have an interesting Betis versus Atletico Madrid match in the weekend, we have decided to go with Barcelona versus Bilbao. Ernesto Valverde, Athletic’s current and Barca’s former coach had a very good start of the season, but only managed to grab 2 points in the last 3 matches. Xavi on the other hand, lost against Real Madrid and at the time of this writing, is still yet to play Villareal. Catalonia versus Basque Country, this is a great matchup for sure.
|Hoffenheim vs Bayern
We have a very interesting match in the Bundesliga, as 4th placed 1899 Hoffenheim faces 2nd placed Bayern Munchen. Both teams are coming off a great week, as Bayern beat Freiburg in the Bundesliga last weekend and eliminated Augsburg from the Cup, while Hoffenheim beat Schalke 04 in both competitions. Nagelsmann’s side needs to be careful not to lose ground against Union Berlin, who are traveling to last placed Bochum.
|Atalanta vs Lazio
|Roma vs Napoli
We just couldn’t help ourselves, we’ve picked two games from a league once again, this time from the Italian Serie A. We have the second placed Atalanta playing against 5th placed Lazio, while 4th placed Roma playing against 1st placed Napoli. All these teams are within 5 points of each other, so there is everything to play for! Also interesting to note that both Napoli and Atalanta are unbeaten, while the two sides from Rome lost only 3 games between them.
|Marseille vs Lens
Despite their loss against PSG last weekend, Marseille are undoubtedly having a nice season, having chances of going through in the Champions League and looking like a decent contender for a top 3 finish in Ligue 1. Lens on the other hand are currently 3rd, even in front of Marseille and only 5 points off leaders, PSG. Definitely an interesting match for the UCL spots!
