Fans of the round leather would turn to their television screens with keen interest as league matches resume this weekend across Europe.
Not leaving out the place of bookmakers and bookies, this is Daily Report Nigeria’s top 5 league matches in Europe this weekend.
ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE
Leicester City v Man City;
Pep Guardiola and his Citizens travel to the King Power Stadium this weekend in Match Day 4.
The game kicks off at 3pm on Saturday and is undoubtedly the pick of the weekend’s fixtures in the EPL.
One cannot afford to miss it.
The game is going to be a very tough one as both teams are currently in good form with 6 points from the opening 3 matches.
Though, City have scored a whooping 10 goals, five of those against Arsenal, Leicester’s have pushed in four and conceded just a goal so far.
However, with a host of Man city players set to miss the encounter, coupled with Leicester’s home advantage, the Foxes look the better side to coast home with victory or earn a point.
SPAIN LA LIGA
Real Madrid v Celta Vigo
A special fixture for Madrid as it is the first home game for the Galactose in La Liga for the 2021/2022 season.
Aside that, the fans will be available to cheer on the players.
Iago Aspas, figuratively considered a Celta legend will also feature and his abundant space and opportunities could cost Real Madrid a great deal of frustration.
Be wary that the match kicks off on Sunday at 8pm Nigerian time.
RB Leipzig v Bayern Munich
As Bayern Munich are tripping to Red Bull Arena for Saturday’s late kick-off 5:30pm, many would expect an easy ride for the visiting champions.
Leipzig’s Jesse Marsch is yet to getting his bearing at the Arena, losing 2 out of his three Bundesliga matches in charge.

ITALY SERIE A
Napoli v Juventus
Maxi Allegri is faced with a team selection headache as most of his first team squad members will be absent for the trip to Naples.
Juan Cuadrado, Chiesa, Aaron Ramsey, Bentancur and Arthur are all ruled out for a game that could have a toll on the progress of both sides.
Napoli on the other hand would be all out to stamp their foot in the game and grab a win.
Surely an encounter any football lover wouldn’t want to miss.
FRENCH Ligue 1
Monaco v Marseille
Monaco only managed to carve out victory from their last game against Troyes, their first win of the season.
Marseille, however, are on a run of fine form with 7 points from three games.
Who knows, Monaco might just be the team to end their unbeaten run.
That’s it. Our pick of top 5 matches across Europe this weekend.
