This round of La Liga action is headlined by Real Madrid hosting Villarreal at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on the evening of Saturday 25 September at 8pm on SuperSport La Liga (DStv channel 204 and GOtv channel). The meeting of Los Blancos and the Yellow Submarine promises to be a high-quality affair, with both sides boasting world-class attacking talent.
Amongst those who have stepped up their game for Real is Welsh attacker Gareth Bale, who has gone from a peripheral figure to one of the Madrid side’s key players since the arrival of manager Carlo Ancelotti at the start of the season.
Another key clash this round sees Deportivo Alaves host Atletico Madrid in the early afternoon match on Saturday at 1pm on SuperSport La Liga, with the Basque side hoping for an upset victory at Estadio de Mendizorroza, though manager Javier Calleja acknowledges that his charges have struggled to find form this season.
Elsewhere in Spain’s top flight this weekend, Sevilla will back themselves to win at home to Espanyol at 5:30pmon SuperSport La Liga, as will Barcelona when they welcome Levante to the Camp Nou on the afternoon of Sunday 26 September at 3:15pm on SuperSport La Liga, while the round will wrap up on the evening of Monday 27 September with Celta Vigo welcoming Granada to Galicia for a clash at Estadio de Balaidos at 8pm on SuperSport La Liga.
This round of Serie A action is headlined by the latest edition of the Rome Derby, or the ‘Derby della Capitale’ between Lazio and Roma on the evening of Sunday 26 September at the Stadio Olimpico at 5pm on SuperSport Football (DStv channel 205) and SuperSport GOtv Select 1 (GOtv channel 33). Regarded as one of the fieriest and intense derbies in European football, this clash never fails to produce drama… and it certainly helps that both teams have looked impressive contenders so far this season.
Yet Lazio boss Maurizio Sarri has warned his team against setting their expectations too high, especially against a well-drilled Roma, who have come on impressively under Jose Mourinho.
Another mouth-watering clash is the ‘black and blue derby’ which sees champions Internazionale play host to Atalanta early on the evening of Saturday 25 September at 5pm on SuperSport Football and SuperSport GOtv Select 1. Inter have shrugged off the loss of key players and manager Antonio Conte, with former Serie A striker Dario Hubner insisting that the Nerazzurri are actually stronger without Romelu Lukaku.
This round of top-flight action from Italy also features Juventus at home to Sampdoria on Sunday at 11:30am; AC Milan look to win away at Stadio Alberto Picco against Spezia on Saturday at 2pm; Napoli at home to Cagliari on Sunday at 7:45pm; and the action wraps up on the evening of Monday 27 September with Venezia at home to Torino at 7:45pm. All these matches will air on SuperSport Football and SuperSport GOtv Select 1.
