Weekend Football Preview

Barebones as Omicron takes over…

Premier League MW 18

Aston Villa vs. Burnley

10th placed Villa take on 18th placed Burnley as this game is one of the few that goes ahead this weekend. Villa are doing well under Gerrard and have gained momentum only having lost to City and Liverpool. Burnley did not play at the weekend and have 2 games in hand going into this game. Burnley have been tough to beat recently though so there is a chance for them to pull away from the other relegation contenders. An interesting game for sure.

Leeds vs. Arsenal

16th placed Leeds have lost their last two games and are going through an injury crisis as they take on Arsenal who have broken into the 4th place position. Leeds have a game in hand and would like to build a gap on the teams below them but Arsenal clearly are the team in better form. Arsenal will want to keep the momentum going and this game should see goals for sure.

Newcastle vs. Man City

19th placed Newcastle lost to Liverpool during the week and now they welcome Man City which is not great either. City sit top of the league having thrashed Leeds 7-0 and this should be another easy win for them.

Tottenham vs. Liverpool

Tottenham sit 7th in the table with three games in hand having missed games due to Covid in either their camp or the opposition camp. This game seems like it will go ahead as they take on Liverpool who have been grinding out wins. With three weeks rest and time to work in the training ground hopefully Conte can cause Liverpool some damage and Liverpool will be tired for sure. An interesting game to watch. 

La Liga MW 18

Real Sociedad take on Villarreal, Barcelona take on Elche, Sevilla take on Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid take on Cadiz, and Valencia travel to Levante. Real Madrid sit 8 points clear in La Liga and the gap could grow with Sevilla playing Atletico. Barcelona are just looking to start winning games as they fall away from the top four while the rest are playing catch up. For sure an interesting season in Spain but Real Madrid are looking like the consistent favourites.

Serie MW 18

Lazio take on Genoa, Inter travel to Salernitana, Atalanta take on Roma, Juventus travel to Bologna, and Milan take on Napoli. Inter lead the table by a point and the gap could grow with Milan playing Napoli. Napoli have fallen away recently and are looking to bounce back while Roma are looking to cut the gap to the top but face a tough trip to Atalanta. Juventus are just looking to gain some momentum. An interesting weekend.

Bundesliga MW 17

Bayern take on Wolfsburg, Hoffenheim take on Monchengladbach, Leipzig take on Arminia, Dortmund travel to Hertha Berlin, and Leverkusen travel to Freiburg. Bayern are in control at the moment and people will hope they can drop points so the other teams can catch up. If that doesn’t happen though there is no one to stop Bayern.
