Five football matches to watch this weekend

Five football matches to watch this weekend The Ruhr derby, Inter vs Juve, the AC Milan destiny and the big match of the Italian Serie B

Between April 25th and May 1st, the mind is occupied with how to organize the holiday trips out of town, the first spring picnics and barbecues with friends. However, instead, we will take advantage of this strategic weekend to focus on the scheduled matches: between important matches and one of the first seasonal finals.

 

Borussia Dortmund - Schalke 04

when: Saturday 27/4 at 3:30pm

where: Westfalenstadion/Sky Sport

Missing four game days at the end of the Bundesliga, there is still absolute uncertainty on the top, with Bayern leading with only one point more than Borussia Dortmund: the black and yellow on Saturday will have to overcome a hard obstacle, the Ruhr derby against the rivals of Schalke 04. There is no match in theory, as guests are close to the bottom of the league at -42, but never take the outcome for granted. The 4-4 of two years ago is proof of this.

 

Inter - Juventus

 

when: Saturday 27/4 at 8:30pm

where: San Siro/DAZN

It doesn't matter that the title race has already ended, the Italian derby is a game that makes history for itself, where the motivations never fail. The three points certainly need more to the Nerazzurri, who want to secure their third place, but Juve will not give anything for sure, and will do everything possible to complicate the future of the hated enemies.

 

Manchester United - Chelsea

 

when: Sunday 28/4 at 5:30pm

where: Old Trafford/Sky Sport

That of Old Trafford is an authentic play-off for the place that is worth the Champions League groups: the Blues are currently fourth in the rankings, the Red Devils sixth at -3 behind Arsenal. But what worries most is the running form of Solskjaer's men, who do not score a goal on action for 8 hours and 47 minutes.

 

 

Turin - AC Milan

when: Sunday 28/4 at 8:30pm

where: Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino/Sky Sport

The fourth place race is alive more than ever even in Serie A, and includes at least five teams: among these are Turin and AC Milan, who challenge each other on Sunday night. The Rossoneri entered into a terrible negative vortex, in the midst of which there was also the elimination from the Italian Cup. Here the challenge against the Granata, only three points apart, assumes a crucial importance for the future of Gattuso & Co.

 

Lecce - Brescia 

when: Sunday 28/ at 9pm

where: Via del Mare/DAZN

Only three points separate Brescia from the return to Serie A: the Rondinelle, however, have to play against the worst possible team, that Lecce back from an incredible second half of the season that gave them the second place. At the Via del Mare stadium there will be almost 20 thousand people and the Giallorossi want to make the most of the support of their fans to stay in the promotion zone.

 

Bonus

Rennes - PSG

when: Saturday 27/ at 9pm

where: Stade de France

A week after winning the title in Ligue 1, PSG returns to the pitch to conquer another cup, that of the French Cup already won 12 times, of which the last four editions. The opponent is Rennes of Mbaye Niang and Hatem Ben Arfa, a team certainly inferior to the Parisians but still very dangerous especially in a offensive way. Eye to motivations: the Rouge & Black have not raised a title since 1971.
