Five football matches to watch this weekend La Liga, FA Cup, French and Asian Cup, Franco Brienza

The end of 2018 was a real binge, and we are not talking about to the endless pre and post Christmas meals: Serie A played three times in a week, the Premier League has never stopped as well as the Italian Serie B. But now almost all of the European football leagues has gone into hibernation, but do not cry: we'll found something interesting to watch on the next weekend!




when: Sunday 6/1 at 2:30pm

where: Stadio San Nicola/DAZN

If you're switching on DAZN channels next Sunday after lunch, know that Bari-Messina is not a replica of a match of the last decade: the two teams ended up in Serie D with different goals, as the Apulian team lead the group I from unbeaten with 9 points on the second and the Sicilians are in full relegation zone. At San Nicola there will certainly be more than 10k people, on the pitch you can still admire the left-handed Franco Brienza.


Sevilla-Atletico Madrid

when: Sunday 6/1 at 4:15pm

where: Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan/DAZN

Friday also re-starts the Spanish La Liga, excellent news because all the other top European leagues are in standby. At the top there is always Barcelona FC but the group of pursuers is very close: Saturday afternoon in Andalusia there's the challenge between the second and the third of the class, respectively Atletico Madrid which is at -3 and Sevilla at -5. An appointment to follow for a thousand reasons: among many, remember that they are the rivals of Juventus and Lazio in Europe.



when: Sunday 6/1 at 5pm

where: Sharjah Stadium

It's Asian Cup time! The first major tournament of the year will take place throughout the month of January in the United Arab Emirates and will see for the first time the participation of 24 teams: Son's South Korea; Marcello Lippi's China; the favorite number one, Japan; Australia for the first time after many years without Cahill and Jedinak. If you do not have anything better to do on Sunday, at 5 pm is scheduled the group B match between Syria and Palestine: it does not matter if we do not know any footballer, it's a match in some historical ways that we sincerely hope neither of the two selections lose.




when: Sunday 6/1 at 8:45pm

where: Stade du Moustoir

Even the Ligue 1 is still, but the whole weekend is dedicated to the 32nd round of the French Cup: among thousand unlikely matches the only one worth following could be the classic challenge 'David against Goliath' between the PSG and a fifth series club, Pontivy. Some general info: the game will play in Lorient because the home stadium is too small, while the Parisians have decided not to call the whole South American block (Neymar, Cavani, Thiago Silva, Di Maria and Marquinhos). Ah, the odd of Mbappé & Co's win is 1.01.



when: Monday 7/1 at 8:45pm

where: Molineux/DAZN

The same situation for the Premier League, that's time for the FA Cup games. The most prestigious competition in the whole United Kingdom, you know, is always an opportunity to see semi-unknown teams succeed in eliminating top-flight clubs. But instead of dwelling on some possible underdog we chose Wolverhampton against Liverpool, the only match between Premier League teams with Bournemouth vs Brighton. Moreover the forecast is anything but written: Liverpool is still unbeaten in the English soil this season while the Wolves are unbeaten too against the top 7 of the standings.
