The Manchester Derby on Sunday is one of four blockbuster fixtures across four of Europe’s major leagues that we’ve picked out for you. Here are all the details.
Atlético Madrid vs Sevilla
Only five points separate Sevilla in third and Valencia in 7th on a congested-looking LaLiga table. Atlético finds themselves sandwiched between the two, and a home win here can send them above Saturday’s visitors. It should be tight and competitive as Diego Simeone’s side looks to sharpen their skills ahead of a trip to Anfield and European Champions Liverpool next week.
Mönchengladbach vs Borussia Dortmund
The Bundesliga title race is starting to approach the final strait and neither of these sides can afford to drop any points with Bayern Munich hitting form just at the right time. Jadon Sancho has joined some elite company this season with his goals & assists output, and Dortmund will need more from the talented teenager against a Mönchengladbach side that can leapfrog its visitors with a win.
Man United vs Man City
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side is unbeaten since a home defeat to Burnley on the 22nd of January, and they look galvanized by new signing Bruno Fernandes. They’ll have to overcome a poor record in Manchester Derby clashes at Old Trafford though, with the Red Devils losing their last three home games against City in all competitions.
With both sides in top form, this should be a cracker. Fernandes and Kevin De Bruyne’s battle for playmaker supremacy should be a key factor in the outcome on Sunday.
Juventus vs Inter
It feels like the last-chance Saloon for Inter in the Serie A title race. They trail leaders Lazio by eight points and, although they have two games in hand, falling further adrift isn’t an option.
A win for Juve would take them above Lazio to the summit, so there’s an awful lot riding on the game. We’ll be watching on as Cristiano and Romelu Lukaku aim to guide their side to three points in the Derby d’Italia. The game will be played behind closed doorsfollowing an outbreak of coronavirus in northern Italy.
