Five football matches to watch this weekend

Five football matches to watch this weekend Delete every date, Saturday night it's 'el partido del siglo' time

This time the combo is almost deadly: two weeks without any club matches because of the International break + cold temperatures from a few days = entire weekend dedicated to a full immersion on football, at any latitude. Saturday evening, you do not risk taking appointments of any kind because there is the return of the Copa Libertadores final between River Plate and Boca Juniors, the most awaited clash of all time.


Olympique Lyon-St. Etienne

when: Friday 23/11 at 9pm

where: Groupama Stadium / DAZN

If you decide to stay at home on Friday night, do not worry too much to stay hours turning the channels with your remote control without finding anything interesting. DAZN will broadcast a tasty rhonalpin derby between OL and the rivals of ASSE, anticipated because of the Champions League. Theorically the hosts are favorites because of a young and potentially very dangerous roster, but amnesia have often been one of the weak points of Fekir and his teammates, which could reveal more difficulties than expected.



when: Saturday 24/11 at 6:30pm

where: Wembley / Sky Sport

If Sarri wants to continue to run as undefeated coach (even if yes, it's true, he lost the Community Shield at the beginning of the season) he will have to pass another difficult test, that of Wembley. The one between Blues and Spurs is not only a high ranking challenge (Chelsea is actually at third place with +1 on Tottenham) is still a very tough London derby, and it will be a pleasure to watch, we have no doubt.


Atletico Madrid-Barcelona

when: Saturday 24/11 at 8:45pm

where: Wanda Metropolitano / DAZN

Barcelona before the International break lost 4-3 at home against Betis but is still at the top of La Liga, it's true, but now the ranking is very short: six teams in just five points. That's why in the Madrid trip the blaugrana risk a lot, because defeating would be overridden by the colchoneros and could even slide to the fourth spot.


River Plate-Boca Juniors

when: Saturday 24/11 at 9pm

where: Estadio Monumental / DAZN

What to add on this clash without being trivial and repetitive? At the Monumental they will play the second part of the game that will change forever the fate of Argentine football, and that will see a team prevail and probably another sink. A race that will force us to remain glued to the TV screens too, you can bet on it. This time it will be the River to play in front of their fans and start from 2-2 of the first leg, but it's worth a draw anyway.



when: Sunday 25/11 at 8:30pm

where: Stado Luigi Ferraris / Sky Sport

The last weekend derby will be the Marassi Sunday night, Genoa and Sampdoria against for the first time after the tragedy of the Morandi bridge. But in the pitch it will be a real battle because both teams need points and are back from a not too bright period: stable on the right side of the table, the Dorians have only one point ahead of the Rossoblù. In addition to the great show in the stands is expected great fight in the field: the shaky Juric against Giampaolo, Piatek against Quagliarella (both are not scoring fo a while) and many possible protagonists that may appear suddenly.
