Five football matches to watch this weekend

Guardiola vs Sarri, Ranieri vs Solskjaer, Rosario's and Madrid's derbies

Five football matches to watch this weekend Guardiola vs Sarri, Ranieri vs Solskjaer, Rosario's and Madrid's derbies

Even if the Serie A gameweek started even Thursday evening with the match between Lazio and Empoli, the highlight as always is concentrated between Saturday and Sunday, the two days of the week in which we do not want to hear anything that is not concerning to the football. After a busy week of study/work, what you need is just to know what and when to watch on TV, and we are here for this.

 

Fulham - Manchester United

when: Saturdayy 9/2 at 1:30pm

where: Craven Cottage/Sky Sport

The first match comes early and is the Premier League clash between Fulham and Manchester United, the challenge between Claudio Ranieri and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in one of the most beautiful English stadiums, Craven Cottage. The two teams have opposing goals: the Cottagers are looking for points to try a desperate run-up from the relegation zone, the Red Devils instead after totally changed face after the arrival of the Norwegian manager (still unbeaten), are looking for three useful points in the fourth place race.

 

Atletico Madrid - Real Madrid

when: Saturday 9/2 at 4:15pm

where: Wanda Metropolitano/DAZN

The first leg was a bad 0-0, now it's time to the Solari and Simeone meeting at the Wanda Metropolitano. We tell you right away, there is no hype like in some recent challenges, such as those in the Champions League, but it is still a very tough Madrid derby. However, there is not much at stake: at the moment the top of the league is too far away and the two teams, separated by two points, are almost certain to finish in the top four at the end of the season. So we hope to enjoy a 'carefree' and not hermetic match like last September.

 

Fiorentina - Napoli

when: Saturday 9/2 at 6pm

where: Stadio Artemio Franchi/Sky Sport

Napoli returns to Florence almost ten months after having lost, in addition to the game, the possibility of fighting for the last Scudetto. Now to disturb the Neapolitans there is the Hamsik situation (does he leave or not?) while in the standings there is a complicated -9 Juventus leaders to deal with. Fiorentina instead is in a good moment and only with a win could fall in the fourth place race, just five points away.

 

Manchester City - Chelsea

when: Sunday 10/2 at 5pm

where: Etihad Stadium/Sky Sport

Do you remember when Manchester City was practically 'death' few days ago, with seven points to recover from Liverpool? Now the situation has almost turned upside down and City is now virtually first, even if with an extra match, with the same points of the Reds. Guardiola's boys will play on Sunday, after having learned the result of Liverpool-Bournemouth, a very important match: at the Etihad arrives Chelsea, who was able to defeat them in the first leg, with the new striker, Higuain. For this and for a thousand other reasons, it's a match that we will not lose for sure.

 

Newell's Old Boys - Rosario Central

when: Sunday 10/2 at 9:10pm

where: Estadio Marcelo Bielsa

If for once there is something that really deserves, in the Argentine league, then we advise you to forget the Sunday night matches like Athletic-Barça and Milan-Cagliari and look for a way to watch the Rosario derby between Newell's Old Boys and Rosario Central: Lepra against Canallas, one of the strongest rivalries in Argentina. And if the quality of the game worries you, don't care about it and focus on the show and the colors of Estadio Marcelo Bielsa (yes, just the current coach of Leeds).
