4 Games You Must Watch This Weekend

4 Games You Must Watch This Weekend


By Mac Izu Nelson

This weekend promises to be rife with football action. Here are four games you must see.

1. Chelsea vs Arsenal;

It promises a feisty affair whenever the blues take on the gunners.
The match is unpredictable as either of the two teams is capable of taking a win from this one.

Indeed despite Chelsea’s failings last season, under Mourihno they were able to win Arsenal almost at will.

But already this season, Chelsea has tasted defeat against the gunners. The last time these two met was in September, a game which ended 3-0 in favour of the gunners.

That game prompted Conte’s change in formation to a 3-4-3, a move that has seen his team fly away at the top of the league table.

Diego Costa and Alexis Sanchez would hope to be on their A games for this one.
The match airs by 13:30 pm, Nigerian time.

2. Barcelona vs Atletico Bilbao;

We would be hoping to see if the Barcelona team can rediscover its shooting boots after drawing abysmally last time out.

Barcelona would be expected to win this one as they have won 21 times against Bilbao, compared to Bilbao’s 4.

Expect goals galore from this one as from history, there is an average of 3 goals per match.

Players like Lionel Messi and Muniain are very important for each of these clubs, and can change the game in a second.

Aritz Aduriz and Luis Suarez are also players to keep an eye on.

The match airs by 4:15 pm on Saturday.

3. Manchester United vs Leicester;

Manchester United travel to the King Power stadium to take on a flailing Leicester team.
Recent results mean that but teams are in desperate need of 3 points.

Leicester hover dangerously close to the relegation zones and would need to start racking up points if they hope to avoid the drop, while United continue to frustrate with their draws.

One of United’s best performances this season came in the 4-0 dismantling of Leicester, last year.

And last time out, aerial balls proved to be a major concern for Leicester.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Jamie Vardy would hope to make the difference for their respective sides.

The game airs on Sunday by 5:00 pm, Nigerian time.

4. Juventus vs Inter Milan;

The Bianconeri take on the rejuvenated Nerazurri on Sunday.

In times past, the derby d’italia has been hardly fought regardless of form.

Last time out, Inter edged it 2:1 at the San siro.

Paulo dybala and Mauro Icardi are two of the hottest properties in Italian football at the moment, and would be looking to give their respective teams the edge in this historic match.

Expect a closely fought affair, with not more than a goal between the teams.

The match kicks off on Sunday by 8:45 pm, Nigerian time.
