Five teams to bank on this weekend
The Italians are third on the log, two points behind Inter Milan who lead the rest of the park but they could be on top of the table by the end of the weekend if they win against Hellas Verona and other results go their way.
The home have kept 2 clean sheets in 3 Serie A games but poor defensive showing against Napoli and Atletico Madrid suggest they’re not totally assured defensively – every time they’ve conceded this season, they’ve gone on to concede at least twice [a record that’s not synonymous with them]
The match on Saturday is a chance to water down the effects of the 2 goal lead they surrendered to Atletico on Wednesday night, you can expect Cristiano Ronaldo and his team mates to grab that chance with both hands. They top the list as one of the top teams to get a win this weekend.
Bayern dropped two points for the second time this season in last week’s Bundesliga match against RB Leipzig which has left them in fourth place.
The Bavarians will be looking to right the wrongs they’ve made so far this season by blowing away Koln this weekend.
Koln have less points(3) than the amount of Bundesliga matches they’ve played so far this season(4) and should offer little or no fight against Bayern Munich.
Lionel Messi’s return from injury couldn’t buy Barcelona a win against Dortmund in the Champions League but it should motivate them to victory against Granada.
Barcelona youngest goal scorer [Ansu Fati] could make way for their all time highest goal scorer [Lionel Messi] in the starting line up – the wonder-kid did his best to deputise for Messi and Suarez while they were injured.
Griezmann, Suarez and Messi are all to likely start the game on Saturday as Barcelona look to increase their points tally for the season.
Marco Silva’s men haven’t started this season the way they would’ve loved too, but their form on home turf is something to be proud of.
The Tofees have maximum points in 6 consecutive Premier League games [stretching back to last season] – beating 3 of the top six sides [Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United].
If you add the 0-0 draw against Liverpool earlier this year, Everton have kept a clean sheet in 6 of 7 consecutive Premier League home games.
Sheffield United’s recent form suggest they might score a goal but Everton should be too strong for them to handle. They are arguably one of the top teams we expect to get a win this weekend.
They gave up a two-goal lead against Watford last week Sunday but they were impressive against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League tie yesterday.
They will be hoping to make amends and appease their fans for the recent poor results in the League and a tie against Aston Villa could well be a perfect opportunity to begin the process.
Mesut Ozil who was rested for the Europa League match could have a part to play on Sunday and his creativity should come good for the home side.
