With a monumental weekend of Football matches including huge derby clashes awaiting us, here are all the most important stories across the footballing world.
This Weekend’s Must-Watch Games:
Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund – Saturday 17:30PM – BT Sport 2
Whilst the clash of the Bundesliga’s two biggest football titans doesn’t have the same top two weight to it this year as in previous, expectations will still be high.
Bayern will enter the game with the league far from secure. Just two points clear at the top of the table, and with high flying RB Leipzig hot on their tails.
Dortmund have had a mixed season, sitting in fifth place a win against Der Bavarians could see them move up to the Champions League places.
For the neutral this will be a can’t miss football match, as the Bundesliga’s top scoring sides come head-to-head.
Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid – Sunday 15:15PM – LaLiga TV
A footballing war is forecasted for this weekend in Spain as Atletico’s Wanda Metropolitano hosts bitter rivals Real Madrid.
Diego Simeone’s side are chasing their second league title under the manager, and their recent struggling form contrasting with Real’s unbeaten run has added yet more fuel to this fire.
Atletico may very well stand tall as La Liga champions come the season’s end, but with just five points separating them from chasing Barcelona and Real this is far from set in stone.
With so much at stake, this could be the most important match in the La Liga season.
Manchester City vs Manchester United – Sunday 16:30PM – Sky Sports Ultra HD
Guardiola’s Manchester City have been an all-conquering footballing machine this season. With twenty-one consecutive wins under their belts, the Premier League title is edging closer to touching distance.
Manchester United’s form, however, has been a shadow of the potential shown earlier in the season. The team who topped the table as recently as January 20th, now find themselves in second place, but well off the pace of leaders City.
So, how fitting would it be for The Red Devils to end City’s streak? Far from a guarantee, but with football made for the fairytale moments Solskjaer’s men could be up to the task.
City, will see United as just another stepping stone, albeit, a somewhat more challenging one as they approach Premier League title number five.
