The football weekend of this week officially started yesterday evening with the match between Lazio Roma and Empoli in the Italian Serie A. La Liga and the Bundesliga will start tonight, while the Premier League is the last league to start of this weekend with a lunch match tomorrow. In this article I share three week 6 football matches every football fan should be watching this weekend.
Week 6 football matches to watch
If you’ve got the time, you should be watching these three matches for sure this weekend.
Atletico Madrid versus Real Madrid
The first match everybody should watch is El Derbi Madrileño. Atletico Madrid entertains Real Madrid at Wanda Metropolitana on Saturday afternoon. The home team is currently second on the table with a two point gap to their opponents. Real Madrid however seemed to have find their form. They won their last four La Liga matches and are ready to face Atletico. It’s going to be very interesting to see if Atletico can fight of Real’s challenge and hold the second place in their hands.
Manchester City versus Chelsea
The Cityzens took over the first place of the Premier League table on Wednesday, but Liverpool still has one spare match. It’s going to be a tough battle to remain on top of the table. Chelsea is one of the few teams that managed to beat Man City during the course of this season. Chelsea’s new striker scored two goals against Huddersfield Town and he seems to click well with Eden Hazard. Chelsea plays for a spot in the top four, so they will also want to win this match. I think Man City should be able to win this match with the support of their home fans, but it isn’t going to be easy.
RB Leipzig versus Eintracht Frankfurt
The top four teams of the Bundesliga qualify for Champions League football. RB Leipzig are currently in 4th spot with a five points advantage over Eintracht Frankfurt. Frankfurt can decrease this gap to only two points if they manage to win this away match in Leipzig. A win for the home team will pretty much secures Leipzig’s Champions League ticket. This fact puts extra pressure on both teams and it will be very interesting to see how the players will cope with this pressure. That’s why I would advice everyone to watch this match if you’ve got the time.
