It’s Friday, which means it’s time to take a look at the week-end fixtures. I will preview what will happen in Europe’s top leagues.
Starting off though, a news roundup as usual. In it, I recap the headlines from the last 24 hours in the World of football.
Premier League: All Eyes are on Anfield!
This week, in the PL, nothing matters more than the game on Sunday.
It is indeed the top rivalry in the PL between Liverpool and Manchester United. For Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, it is all about getting the win at Anfield and keeping the top spot.
This is the first time in a while, where it feels like Manchester United truly have a chance of winning looking at Liverpool’s form.
Whether OGS will capitalize or not, it really remains to be seen.
Laliga: Atletico Madrid have the playground for themselves!
In Spain, Atletico Madrid are the only top 3 side to play as Real Madrid and Barcelona played their round 19 fixtures. A victory for Atleti against Eibar will see them take a 7-point lead at the top which is bonkers considering we are literally half way through the season.
It screams “La temporada de Atleti” doesn’t it?.
Serie A: A Roman derby, and an Italian derby to book-end!!
It’s a great week-end in Italy as on Friday, Olympico hosts Lazio vs AS Roma in a tasty capital derby. On Sunday, it is Conte’s Inter vs Pirlo’s Juventus.

Bundesliga: Redemption is a must for Bayern!!
The big focus in Germany is on Bayern, who need to bounced back after an atrocious week.
Losing to Borussia M’Gladbach in the league, then to Kiel in the cup, the only way for Bayern is to beat Freiburg and get some confidence back.
