Five football matches to watch this weekend

But you already know: Sunday night there's the Milan derby

Five football matches to watch this weekend But you already know: Sunday night there's the Milan derby

The last two weeks seemed endless, it's true, but now it's time to see the future with optimism: we left behind the International break and Saturday can finally back to follow our favorite team. We are happy but also worried that this long abstinence will force us to pass all the weekend in front of the TV, with the unconscious intention of wanting to recover all the football we had lost in the last days. Ah, by the way, have you sign up the DAZN pass in the meantime?


Chelsea-Manchester United

when: Saturday 20/10 at 1:30pm

where: Stamford Bridge / Sky Sport

The weekend starts strongly: this time you are also allowed to do a bit 'of partying on Friday night but Saturday lunchtime you can not miss the Stamford Bridge clash. There's Mourinho who come back to the Bridge trying to remain on the Manchester United's bench (never so shaky), there's Sarri who will try to stay at the top of the league, hoping for a stop of Liverpool and City. And then there are a thousand other interesting reasons that we are not writing into a list: one above all, Eden Hazard with the shirt number 10. 



when: Saturday 20/10 at 9:45pm

where: Camp Nou / DAZN

That of the Camp Nou is a top match between the first two teams in the Spanish table. But no, it's not like you're thinking: the team at the top of the La Liga is Sevilla and the team that is following is Barça, in full defensive emergence. Will the good Piqué succeed in stopping Andre Silva's fury? Also this time we are not joking, because the former AC Milan striker is the current top scorer of the league. It's understood that we expect everything from people like Messi and Coutinho, but also from Ben Yedder and Banega.


Venice-Hellas Verona

when: Sunday 21/10 at 3pm

where: Pierluigi Penzo Stadium / DAZN

The Italian Serie B season started a bit confused: matches scattered between DAZN and Rai Sport, an undefined number of participants and lot of chaos. What comforts us, however, is that nobody can ever scratch big games and great rivalries. For this reason, in your place, we would spend all the Sunday afternoon on the sofa to see the Venetian derby between Venice and Hellas, who will play against after 9 long years. The away sector is already sold out (oh well, the stadium is so small, we know) and then there's a curious clash between the two coaches: Fabio Grosso on one side and Walter Zenga (at the debut) from other.


Inter Milan

when: Sunday 21/10 at 8:30pm

where: S. Siro / Sky Sport

If there is a match that is truly envied around the world is that between Inter and Milan: a total derby that splits a whole city, and not only. Completely unpredictable, like all the derbies and all the top clashes, will be the game that will accompany our Sunday evening. Spalletti's Inter Milan against Gattuso's AC Milan. Needless to try to explain why in detail, it's simply a game that we would never give up.


OGC Nice-Olympique Marseille 

when: Sunday 21/10 at 9pm

where: Allianz Riviera / DAZN

If you really have an absolute refusal against the Milan derby, or you are a fanatic of Mario Balotelli, Florian Thauvin, Dimitri Payet or Patrick Vieira, Nice-Marseille is your match. This is also a derby, and also very hearted in the French Riviera. The perfect solution for not missing even one moment of the two top night challenges would be to try and see it simultaneously with Inter-Milan, using two different screens. Do not say you've never did this.
