Five football matches to watch this weekend

There's a lot of great matches but the Hamburg derby is the top

Five football matches to watch this weekend There's a lot of great matches but the Hamburg derby is the top

Do you remember the sad days during we were forced to suffer because of the national teams break? It's happened a few days ago and yet it seems only a vague nightmare that we are trying to remove, perhaps in a definitive way thanks to the next football weekend. So prepare well: start stocking food and drinks, turn off notifications from your WhatsApp and avoid responding to chats in which some people try to organize your Saturday dinner. This weekend (but especially this Saturday) does not go out and you spend all the time watching football in TV, as indeed has already happened for other countless times in your life.



when: Saturday 29/9 at 3pm

where: Stadio Olimpico / Sky Sports

The weekend starts very strongly because at the Olimpico in Rome the Di Francesco's Giallorossi will play against the Inzaghi's Biancocelesti: a game that goes beyond the situation provided by the first seasonal games, unpredictable like any other derby. Dzeko against Immobile, De Rossi against Milinkovic-Savic, Acerbi against Manolas and much more. Maybe some cards, some hard tackles or some fist fight. Of course there will be sparks and we will be glued to the TV screen.



when: Saturday 29/9 at 6pm

where: Allianz Stadium / Sky Sports

Juventus have won 12 of the last 13 games between this and last season, including an Italian Cup final, and the last defeat dates back to last April, when it was mocked just from Naples and right in front of the public friend . The Neapolitans have changed coach but they are always there, in the front row to chase Cristiano Ronaldo & companions: that's why the challenge of Saturday afternoon will tell us a lot about the continuation of the championship. Should he win Juventus, a +6 run away and already closed?



when: Saturday 29/9 at 6:30pm

where: Stamford Bridge / Sky Sports

If you've seen Hazard's stunning goal in the midweek match played in Liverpool you'll have even more desire to see this close remake, a match three days after from the League Cup clash. But once again Maurizio Sarri will be able to smile, because after having conquered Anfield he has the chance, with 3 points, to overtake the Reds and return to the top of the Premier League, City permitting. Among the thousand keys of the match, do not underestimate the return of Momo Salah to Stamford Bridge, as an opponent. Too bad the contemporaneity with Juventus-Naples that will force you to use two screens.


Real Madrid-Atletico Madrid

when: Saturday 29/9 at 8.45pm

where: Estadio Santiago Bernabéu / DAZN

That of the Bernabeu is a very soft challenge, especially for the Lopetegui's boys who in the midweek suffered a hard defeat (3-0) in Seville and probably are forced to play without the injured Marcelo. That's why despite the home favour give from the heat of the Bernabeu we are not so sure that the blancos are the real favorites of this match. Atletico in fact has a complete and competitive team and don't want to leave the pitch losing. It's way the Spanish newspaper AS has titled: 'the derby of anxiety'.


Hamburg-St. Pauli

when: Sunday 30/9 at 1:30pm

where: Volksparkstadion / the best streaming you can find online

If Saturday offers more than enough football, what better awakening on Sunday with a nice Hamburg derby at lunch time? This match returns after 7 long years, but this time in second division, and it will be a very difficult test for the hosts team: a single point of advantage against the 'cousins' coming from the communist/punk/multicolored/hipster district, and a 0-5 (you got it right, that received at home from the poor Jahn Regensburg) to be avenged. Moreover, HSV has not won the derby for 12 years: one more reason to waste time looking for a streaming that works well.
