Five teams to bank on this weekend
The dreaded shackles of international football is finally off and football fans can return to their regular lifestyle of watching football round the clock, whether your watching it live at the stadium or from the comfort of your home with friends, league football comes with an entirely different vibe from international football and it is this vibe that keep millions of fans around the world on the edge of their sits whenever there’s league football on their screen.
As we approach another round of league football across the world, here’s our list of the top 5 teams that should get off to a winning start (after the international)
Real Madrid: Yes! you read that right, Real Madrid have had it tough this season because of injuries to key members of the squad and also to most of their marquee signings but we think the royal whites will do just enough to run away with all three points at the prestigious Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.
Their opponents for this weekend, Levante, who are currently in champions league places on the log have started the season in good form with 2 wins out the 3 matches played so far but their H2H record against the host is woeful especially when they’re away, the east coast team have only managed to take 7 points from 12 games when they’re away at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium and we don’t expect this to be any different, a win for Real Madrid.
Manchester City: The defending champions will be without Aymeric Laporte as they face off against new comers, Norwich City, the newly promoted side are second from bottom with 3 points and Pep Guardiola’s men should have it easy against them regardless of Teemu Pukki’s form for the home team.
PSG: The match between Psg and Strasbourg this weekend will be more about what Thomas Tuchel do with Neymar Jr rather than the result, the Brazilian played and scored for his country during the international break and has been listed in Psg’s team for the first time since his proposed move to Barcelona broke down and it’s left to be seen if he will have a part to play in the game as the home team look to grab 3 points and continue their quest towards securing yet another league title.
Arsenal: The gunners will be without one of their strikers, Alexandre Lacazette, the french man is out for the rest of September due to an ankle problem but that shouldn’t be an excuse for Unai Emery’s men not to get maximum points from this game.
Injury to Lacazette means Aubameyang can return to his preferred No 9 role, hopefully he and his teammates can fire Arsenal to victory against a Watford team that has been abysmal so far this season.
Inter Milan: The new look Inter Milan team have started life under Antonio Conte this season in fine form with new signing Romelu Lukaku scoring twice in 2 games, we expect them to continue in the same vein against Udinese on Saturday even as Alexis Sanchez hope to make his debut for the Italian club.
