⚽ Atletico Madrid vs Athletic Club
🇪🇸 La Liga
📅 Saturday 18 September 2021
⏰ 1500 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ Not On UK TV – International IPTV Streaming Only
Due to the UK 3pm blackout this match will not be available on La Liga TV for those using a UK IP address. Non-UK IP addresses and International IPTV streaming services will still be able to access this match.
The reigning La Liga Champions welcome arguably the most admirable club in Europe to the capital in what should be a good game this weekend. Both sides have made good starts to the league campaign, three wins and a draw for Atleti vs two wins and two draws for Athletic Club, with respective managers Diego Simeone and Marcelino both setting high expectations for their teams this season. Atleti are bedding in a number of new signings and Simeone is experimenting with his formation. With Real Madrid standing still over the summer and Barcelona losing Lionel Messi, it’s fair to suggest that Atleti should be seen as the favourites for the title.
Athletic Club didn’t make any signings in the summer, preferring to promote youth and develop existing players while holding a steady financial position during the pandemic. They have high hopes that they can improve their league position from last seasons 10th place while going one better in the Copa Del Rey after being beaten finalists for each of the past two seasons. The culture of Bilbao is fascinating and they are a club who deserve as much support as people can muster. To maintain their strict principals and keep fielding a competitive team season after season is a very impressive feat and one that other clubs could take something from.
⚽ Koln vs RB Leipzig
📅 Saturday 18 September 2021
⏰ 1730 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ Sky Sports Live Streaming
Two teams under new management this season, Koln hired Steffen Baumgart who had built a strong reputation in his four years at Paderborn and Leipzig promoted from within the Red Bull organisation to bring in Jesse Marsch from Red Bull Salzburg. The teams have had contrasting starts to the season and Koln will be happier with their seven points from four games than Leipzig will be with their own tally of four points from the same number of games. Having finished 16th and survived only after beating Holstein Kiel in the relegation playoff, Koln are looking for a big improvement this season. Leipzig will have ambitions of another top four finish and while Marsch won’t be under any pressure this season he will know that there are high expectations.
Leipzig are a team loaded with talent that makes this a game worth your time. Christopher Nkunku scored a hattrick in the midweek defeat to Manchester City and he, along with Dani Olmo, Dominik Szoboszlai and Andre Silva give Leipzig one of the most exciting attacking groups in the Bundesliga. If Marsch can find the right balance in his team this season, Leipzig should overcome this bad start and the first match to begin climbing back towards the top of the table will be this clash with Koln who will hope that Anthony Modeste and Florian Kainz can both continue their impressive starts to the season.
⚽ Juventus vs AC Milan
🇮🇹 Serie A
📅 Sunday 19 September 2021
⏰ 1945 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ BT Sport Live Streaming
There just aren’t many games that rival this one. Two of the biggest clubs in world football, with a fantastic rivalry, iconic shirts and histories on both sides that would be the rival of any other club. Sure, the two teams aren’t at the same level they were through the 80’s, 90s and pre-Calciopolli 00s but there’s still a lot to be excited about when it comes to these teams. Juventus have endured a bad start to the season with only one point from their three games but with Max Allegri back at the helm you’d place a substantial amount of money on them being in the mix for the title before long. Milan on the other hand have won each of their three Serie A games and gave a good accounting of themselves in their opening Champions League match away to Liverpool.
Cristiano may be gone but don’t be fooled into believing that Juventus weren’t trying to engineer his departure all summer. They realised quickly that they’d made a mistake in signing him and tried to sell him last summer and this. The Ronaldo experiment a massive failure for Juventus and they have paid the price financially, but they are still a team with outstanding players at centreback, in midfield and in attack. Federico Chiesa, Paulo Dybala and Dejan Kulusevski represent the future of Juventus in attack, with Moise Kean potentially being the man to benefit from all that creativity. Milan still have their legend, Zlatan, but they’ve also put together an impressive young team that will continue to improve and should see them challenge for the title again this season. This may be their best chance, as Juventus figure things out and Inter deal with a summer that cost them Conte, Lukaku and Hakimi. A win for Milan will move them 11 points clear of Juventus and even at this early stage, that might be insurmountable.
⚽ PSG vs Lyon
🇫🇷 Ligue 1
📅 Sunday 19 September 2021
⏰ 1945 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ BT Sport Live Streaming
If Serie A isn’t for you, how about Ligue 1? At the same time as Juventus take on Milan, Ligue 1 offers us PSG vs Lyon and Lionel Messi is expected to make his first domestic start after playing a role from the bench last weekend. The Messi-Mbappe-Neymar front three got it’s first outing during the week in a Champions League match with Club Brugge. The game ended 1-1 and manager Mauricio Pochettino came in for some unfair criticism. PSG it should be noted have won each of their first five league matches this season and already built up a four point lead in the table. Lyon have enjoyed a solid start, but are already seven points behind the Parisian’s.
PSG are obviously the star studded team with superstars littered across their squad. The challenge for Pochettino is finding the minutes to keep everyone happy, and finding the balance on the field to allow him to field as strong a team as possible without being too top heavy and too open at the back. For Lyon, they have an excellent goalkeeper, a proven goalscorer upfront and a core of really talented midfielders in Bruno Guimaraes, Maxence Caquaret, Houssem Aouar and Lucas Paqueta that is absolutely good enough to engineer a top three finish this season, but they are major doubts of their defence. The summer signing of a past-his-best Jerome Boateng might help but his off-field issues may continue to cause distraction. This promises to be an exciting game, and if Messi plays then it will be a true spectacle. How often do you get the see the greatest player of his generation making a debut start in a new league?
