This weekend you have two possibilities: spend your time between Christmas markets, shopping center and various store searching for Christmas gifts with your partner or enjoy all the football show scheduled during the weekend. We obviously choose the second option, sticked on the sofa to see every available minute of football. Because the day of the Immaculate falls on Saturday and (except Milanese people) there is no one who has a chance to have extra days of vacation.

 

Juventus - Inter

when: Friday 7/12 at 8:30pm

where: Allianz Stadium / Sky Sport

The derby d'Italia between the current champions and Neroazzurri will be played at Allianz Stadium before an important Champions League stage for both teams, that in Serie A are 11 points far. Only with a win Inter can open again the championship run, not just for them but especially for Napoli, interested in the outcome of this electric challenge. Like all the clashes between Juventus and Inter, of course.

 

Schalke 04 - Borussia Dortmund

when: Saturday 8/12 at 3:30pm

where: Veltins Arena / Sky Sports

One of the hottest challenges in Germany is undoubtedly the Ruhr derby, a classic between the two teams, far just a few kilometers, used to score a series of goals (the 4-4 of 2017, for example). This year the BVB are on fire and lead the championship with seven points more of the second place, while Schalke instead is twelfth, with 19 points less. But you know, matches like this do not have a prediction linked to the ranking.

 

Chelsea - Manchester City

when: Saturday 8/12 at 6:30pm

where: Stamford Bridge / Sky Sport

That of Stamford Bridge is a crucial competition between Sarri's and Guardiola's boys: the draw against Everton and the Wolverhampton defeat send Chelsea far away from the top (-10), occupied by City still unbeaten. This is why the race scheduled on Saturday afternoon is maybe the last chance for Hazard & Co: we are sure that they will have the support of all the Premier League club, for the future of the championship.

 

Atlanta United - Portland Timbers

where: Mercedes Benz Arena / Eurosport

MLS lovers, finally here we are! On the Italian Saturday night will be staged the final of the American major league: the theater is the incredible Mercedes Benz Arena of Atlanta, where the hosts will play against the Portland Timbers. There should be no game on theory, as the franchise coached by Tata Martino and driven by MVP Josef Martinez, is definitely favored. But it is a final, and anything can happen.

 

River Plate - Boca Juniors

What else to say about this game? The final of the Copa Libertadores was supposed to take place two weeks ago but then at the Monumental happened what happened, and the two Argentine teams will meet in Madrid to close (perhaps) the contention. The wait has literally exhausted us, we can not wait for the kick-off and the start of the match. We remind you: there will be ninety and perhaps more minutes that will change forever the South American football.
