Four key matches you must watch this weekend

We are on the final sprints to the end of the league season and this weekend, matches will go a long way in defining the winning direction of league winners in England and Italy. So you cannot afford to miss these top four meetings in both countries – it is ‘Super Sunday’!


Arsenal vs. Leicester @The Emirates @1pm on Feb.14

So much has been written about this Arsenal team been ready to finally win the EPL once again and this is one match that they cannot even afford to draw. Gunners’ fans believe that the return of Alexis Sanchez will re-ignite their title chase but they have to play a perfect defensive game against Leicester’s Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez. Will Arsene Wenger send out a perfect 11 that will take the three points?

Man City vs. Tottenham @The Etihad @5.15pm on Feb.14

Tottenham now have a spine – Mauricio Pochettino and Manchester City have to show some spine after last weekend’s loss at home to Leicester. An interesting fact is that the last away match that Spurs lost was on the opening day to Manchester United. Can Manuel Pellegrini inspire his team over Pochettino’s young Turks?

Juventus vs. Napoli @Juventus Stadium @8:45pm on Feb.13

This could be the weekend when Juventus finally assume the leadership of Serie A after 13 consecutive league wins but Napoli under Maurizio Sarri, have proven that this season, they are serious about going all the way. The two teams will have all their players available and Sarri has promised that Napoli will attack the defending champions. That will be a spectacle not to be missed.

Real Madrid vs. Atletic Bilbao @Santiago Bernabeu @4pm on Feb.13

Zinedine Zidane knows that his team cannot afford to drop any point in their chase of both Atletico Madrid and leaders, Barcelona [who still have a game in hand]. They have proven to be very ruthless at home which could mean a roasting for Bilbao, who have not been too good on their travels. Marcelo is out with a shoulder injury and Zidane has said he will not rush Gareth Bale back into action but how many goals will the Bernabeu witness on Saturday?
