European leagues have adopted different approaches to keeping fans keenly interested, one of which is that no weekend will ever come without big teams going head-to-head with one another.
This weekend presents a couple of bangers with two giant clubs from England opening up the competitions throughout all domestic leagues. Below is Daily Report Nigeria’s Top 5 League Matches in Europe This Weekend.
ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE
Chelsea v Man City
The Blues are going head-to-head with Manchester City in the English Premier League on Saturday, 25th of September. The kick off is set for 12:30pm at stamford bridge.
Chelsea is among the clubs with unbeaten records so far. They even sit at the top of the English table with 3 points over Man City which suffered series of beating from the Blues last season, including the slim 1-0 win by Chelsea in the final stage of UEFA Champions League.
Arsenal v Tottenham
Gunners will be competing with Spurs for the first north London derby of the Premier League season this weekend at 4:30pm, 26th of September.
Tottenham have lost their last two and Arsenal are looking to build on their first two wins of the season as they clamber up the Premier League table.
SPANISH LA LIGA
Real Madrid v Villareal
The last game to be played on Saturday in La Liga is perhaps the most interesting one as Madrid is playing against Villareal at 8pm on dot. Madrid had a very impressive 6-1 win in their last game against Mallorca and the win saw them go top of the La liga table.
Dani Carvajal, Gareth Bale, Ferland Mendy, Toni Kroos and Marcelo are still out for Real Madrid. Eden Hazard is however, back in the lineup after impressing against Valencia last weekend.
Gerard Moreno and Yéremi Pino are rated doubtful for the visitors too.
Borussia Mönchengladbach v Borussia Dortmund
On Saturday, Marco Rose will be returning to his former club, where he left under a cloud last season as Borussia Dortmund travel to face Borussia Mönchengladbach at 05:30pm.
Am sure you can still remember that world-class striker, I mean the dangerous Erling Haaland of Dortmund. He will surely be available to cause all sorts of issues for the Mönchengladbach defence at Borrusia Park.
ITALY SERIE A
Lazio v Roma
Rome is set to grind to a halt on Sunday evening 26th of September at 5pm.
The Giallorossi have enjoyed an almost perfect start under coach Jose Mourinho, with seven wins and a single defeat. However, Lazio have been less consistent under Maurizio Sarri .
Lazio have failed to win their last four matches, Roma have however won seven of their eight matches this season.The match is going to be Jose Mourinho’s first Derby Della Capitale!
You definitely can’t afford to miss any of Top 5 League Matches in Europe this Weekend.
