The World Cup 2018 in Russia is approaching and this means the most soccer leagues are running towards the end of the season. Some teams are playing for the title, others are fighting against relegation. In this post we discuss the soccer matches to watch this weekend in the several leagues.
Soccer matches to watch this weekend
#1 Tottenham Hotspur versus Manchester City
This is going to be a very interesting match for everyone who is following the Premier League. Man City completely dominated this season, but they suffered some harsh defeats over the last week. For this first time since the beginning of 2016, Man City lost three competitive matches in a row. They should try to turn the tide at Wembley where they face Tottenham Hotspur. This is probably the hardest match they could have in this period of time. Tottenham is in a good form and wants to stay in the top 4. There will be a lot of quality on the pitch in this match so I highly recommend everybody to watch this match that starts at 7.45 pm GMT +1.
#2 Barcelona versus Valencia
Another match with a team in a bad mood. Barcelona got kicked out of the Champions League after losing 3-0 against AS Roma. Barca is going to win La Liga, but they would like to play away the nasty taste of the CL elimination. Valencia is in third place and is able to give Barcelona a tough time in this match. Although the Calatan side are pretty dominant in La Liga, they aren’t as good as they were in recent years. I really believe Valencia can harm Barcelona in this match.
#3 Schalke 04 versus Borussia Dortmund
The last match in this post is the well known Kohlenpott derby. The derby between Schalke 04 and Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga. This is by far the biggest derby between teams in Germany. This match is extra special because of the current ranking of both teams. Schalke 04 is second on the table with 52 points. Borussia Dortmund is only one point behind their rivals. The first time both teams faced each other this season looked to be a walkover for Dortmund. They were 4-0 ahead with 25 minutes, but they collapsed in the second half. Schalke 04 was responsible for one of the greatest comebacks in the world of soccer and scored 4 goals in the last 30 minutes of the match.
#4 Ac Milan versus Napoli
This is the match between fallen giant Ac Milan and Napoli. Milan is in sixth spot and will try to defend it for the remainder of the season. The gap with the fifth place is 7 points, while the number 7 is only two points behind Ac Milan. Napoli still hopes they can win the Serie A this year, but dropping points in this match will probably kill all hopes. I believe this is going to be a very interesting teams between two good teams which both want to win this match.
