Weekend Football Preview

Why does the International break exist?!

Premier League MW 12

Cardiff City vs. Brighton

Cadiff City narrowly lost to Leicester last week as they look to add a second win of the season against a decent Brighton side. Brighton were comfortably beaten by Everton last week but Cardiff are better opponent for them to challenge. Brighton do tend to do poorly away from home and Cardiff could come away with a win or at least a point. 

Huddersfield vs. West Ham

Huddersfield beat Fulham last weekend to get their first win of the season and will look to build upon that victory with a win over tougher opponents. West Ham beat Burnley last weekend and having finally clicked they could notch another three points against Huddersfield. 

Leicester vs. Burnley

Leicester will look to continue their positive form against a poor Burnley side who continue to ship in the goals home and away. In current form and with Leicester playing their first game at home since the tragic events from two weeks ago there is probably going to be one winner and that is Leicester. 

Newcastle vs. Bournemouth

Newcastle also managed their first win of the season against an inform Watford side while they face a similar stern test in Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth. Bournemouth have been flying high and sit 6th in the table and if Newcastle could manage a point or more from this game it would be a positive result for them.

Southampton vs. Watford

Watford will look to bounce back from their shock defeat to Newcastle by winning against a poor Southampton side. Southampton are at home but Watford should be too much for them based on current form. Watford should return to winning ways.

Crystal Palace vs. Tottenham

Tottenham will look to continue their decent form by winning a London derby against Palace. Palace lost to Chelsea last weekend but still caused them problems with the likes of Zaha being a constant threat. A tough game that on paper should go Tottenham’s way but it could be a draw. 

Liverpool vs. Fulham

Liverpool begin Super Sunday as they welcome Fulham to Anfield. Fulham have been poor and another loss could throw Jokanovic’s position into serious doubt if it is not already. Liverpool surprisingly lost to Red Star mid week and they will look to reply back by maintaining their form in the league. 

Arsenal vs. Wolverhampton

Arsenal drew with Liverpool last weekend and drew midweek against Sporting Lisbon as they welcome Wolves this weekend. Wolves started the season off brilliantly but have been poor in recent weeks but a trip to Arsenal is a good way to regain some form as the Gunners defence is still shaky. Arsenal will look to regain their momentum form this game as well.

Man City vs. Man United

A packed Super Sunday comes to a close with a certain Manchester Derby as Pep faces off against Mourinho. This fixture last year showcased a brilliant United comeback and this iteration should be no less fiery. City are flying high thrashing any side that comes their way while United are in good form having beaten Juventus away during the Champions League. A great game and hopefully City drop points. 

La Liga MW 12

Atletico entertain Bilbao, Barcelona welcome Real Betis, Sevilla play Espanyol, and Real travel to Celta Vigo. A decent weekend in La Liga with potentially straight forward games for the major names involved. 

Serie MW 12

Napoli travel to Genoa, Inter travel to Atlanta, and Juventus travel to Milan in an entertaining fixture. 

Bundesliga MW 11

Monchengladbach travel to Werder Bremen, Bayer Leverkusen travel to RB Leipzig, Schalke travel to Frankfurt, and the main event comes from Dortmund as they play against Bayern. A brilliant weekend of German football ahead. 

Ligue MW 13

Lyon travel to Guingamp, Marseille entertain Dijon, and Monaco welcome PSG. PSG should continue their brilliant form against a very poor Monaco side.
