Midweek Football Preview

League football times 2!

Premier League (Various GW)

Man City vs. Wolverhampton

Man City won once again at the weekend and extended their lead at the top to 12 points. Wolves drew at the weekend and sit 12th in the table. Wolves are on a good run of form having gone unbeaten in their last 5 but I think that is going to a end. City should win. 

Burnley vs. Leicester

Burnley sit 15th having lost at the weekend while Leicester also lost at the weekend and remain 3rd in the table. Two teams looking to bounce back and Leicester on paper should win this but Burnley are a hard team to beat. A tough game for both teams. 

Sheffield United vs. Aston Villa

Sheffield United made it 4 losses in a row on Sunday while Villa returned to winning ways and sit 9th in the table. Villa should win this on current form but Sheffield United were pretty solid until the 2nd half. Similar to Burnley, Leicester is going to be defence vs attack. 

Crystal Palace vs. Man United

Palace sit 13th in the table and drew at the weekend as they take on 2nd placed United who also drew at the weekend. United need to win because they play City next and if they lose both these games they could well and truly be in a top four race by the end of this week. Palace will want to win to continue their good run. 

West Brom vs. Everton

19th placed West Brom managed to win at the weekend as they take on Everton who will play on Monday night. Everton could be a point of off 5th going into this game which would make a win against West Brom quite important. An interesting game. 

Fulham vs. Tottenham

London derby time as 18th placed Fulham take on 8th placed Spurs who got a big win against Burnley. Two teams in good form in the last two games although Fulham are unbeaten in their last 5 games. Fulham know a win can bring them level on points with Newcastle. A big derby in context. 

Copa Del Rey Semi-Final 2nd Leg

Barcelona take on Sevilla with Sevilla having a 2 goal lead from the 1st leg. Barcelona have all the work to do in this game. Levante and Bilbao take on each other with the first leg having ended 1-1. 

Serie MW 25

Lazio take on Torino, Juventus welcome Spezia, Napoli travel to Sassuolo, Milan welcome Udinese, Atalanta take on Crotone, Roma travel to Fiorentina, Inter travel to Parma. Inter remain 4 points clear at the top of the table but all the teams have tricky games during the week. It will be interesting to see which teams trip up while which teams stay consistent. 

DFB Pokal Quarter-Final

Monchengladbach take on Dortmund, and Leipzig take on Wolfsburg among two other games. Arguably the tougher teams take on each other with the other two games played between smaller teams. 

Ligue MW 28

Lyon take on Rennes, Lille take on Marseille, Monaco travel to Strasbourg, and PSG travel to Bordeaux. Lille remain 2 points clear at the top of the table but PSG move into 2nd in the table. It’s quite close at the top with 4 points separating 1st and 4th. Interesting games.
