It’s time for another weekend filled with football in the big European competitions. We update you weekly on the matches you should watch this weekend. In this matches to watch week 17 post, I give three matches you take the time for to watch this weekend.
Matches to watch week 17
Deportivo La Coruna versus Barcelona
It’s not a match between two title candidates, but it’s a very important match for both teams. Barcelona can win their 25th title when they win this match. For Deportivo la Coruna this can be the match they got relegated from La Liga. Deportivo la Coruna haven’t lost in their last 4 La Liga matches, so it’s going to be really interesting to see what’s going to happen this Sunday.
Internazionale versus Juventus
This is going to be a very interesting match. Juventus lost 5 points in their last two matches after losing against Napoli last Sunday. The gap between Napoli and Juventus is now just one more point. Juventus needs to win all their remaining matches to secure another Serie A title, but the match against Internazionale isn’t the easiest one. Internazionale is just one point behind the fourth spot, which secure Champions League football, so both teams have everything to play for this weekend.
Galatasaray versus Besiktas
For me this is the most interesting match of this weekend. Galatasaray is currently on top of the Super Lig table with 63 points. Besiktas and Basaksehir are second and third with 62 points. Basaksehir plays this weekend away agains the number 15 of the table, so this match is very important in the title race. If Galatasaray wins they will increase the gap to Besiktas to four points, with three matches remaining. This is the last match this season in which two of the title candidates play against each other.
