Match of the Mid-Week

Villarreal V Granada CF

Villarreal v Granada 20/01/2021 21:30
MY11 SAY 2-1

Naija Super Eagles stars Samuel Chukwueze and Ramon Azeez will face off as Villarreal will have another opportunity to continue their win streak when they welcome Granada to the Estadio de la Cerámica, popularly known as El Madrigal on Wednesday night.

 

In the last 12 La Liga meetings between these two teams, Villarreal have won 7 games, while Granada have won just 2, with the remaining 3 games ending in a draw. This fixture last season at the Madrigal ended 4-4.

 

Villarreal will be without Mario Gaspar, Vicente Iborra, and Alberto Moreno due to injury. Granada, on the other hand, will be without Victor Diaz, Neyder Lozano, and Maxime Gonalons due to injury, while Domingos Duarte will miss out due to suspension.

 

The Yellow Submarine have dropped points only twice in their last 8 games, and are on a 4-game winning streak, while Granada have lost 3 of their last 8, but they were victorious in their last 2 matches. This looks like a tie the home side will win.

Liverpool V Man Utd

Anti-climax at Anfield as Liverpool and Manchester United finished goalless - RESULT: 0 - 0

The biggest clash between the most successful teams in England became an anti-climatic encounter as Liverpool against Manchester United ended 0-0 at Anfield on Sunday as both teams played cautious football.

 

Both teams failed to have a go at each other and kept possessing the ball without penetration. The real chances came in the second half, but goalkeepers Alisson Becker and David De Gea were up to the task, making 4 and 3 saves respectively, to keep clean sheets.

 

 

Liverpool have dropped to fourth on the log, 1 point behind second and third, and 1 point ahead of Tottenham – who they will face in 10 days – while Manchester United remain top of the table, 2 points behind city rivals Manchester City, who have a game in hand.

Inter Milan V Juventus

No record yet for Ronaldo as Inter beat Juventus [video] - RESULT: 2 - 0

Five-time Ballon d’Or winner, Cristiano Ronaldo failed to score for the second game running as he waits for his record, following Juventus’ 2-0 loss to Inter at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Sunday night.

 

Ronaldo thought he scored the opening goal early in the encounter, but it was chalked off for offside, then Arturo Vidal scored the opening goal in the 12th minute from a lovely Nicolo Barella cross. Barella then scored the second goal just 7 minutes after the restart following a long cross-filed pass from defender Alessandro Bastoni.

 

 

Ronaldo’s push to become the highest goal scorer of all-time failed again after that loss, and Inter Milan are now joint top with local rivals – who will play their game today – while Juventus missed the chance to go third, and are fifth on the Serie A table.

 

Do you think Juventus can win the league this season?

Arsenal V Crystal Palace

Arsenal’s win streak ended after stalemate with Crystal Palace - RESULT: 0 - 0

Arsenal’s three-game win streak ended, following a goalless draw with London rivals Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night.

 

The Eagles were the closest to getting a goal, as James Tomkins’ header from Eberechi Eze’s freekick hit the woodwork. Christian Benteke also forced a save from the Gunners’ goalie Bernd Leno. Arsenal did not get a clear cut chance in the entire 90 minutes.

 

 

Arsenal dominated possession in the game but did not create enough chances to win the games, and they missed the chance to go higher on the table with the draw, while Crystal Palace moved above Wolves from 14 to 13.

 

Do you think Arsenal’s form is over?

Match of the Week

Liverpool V Man Utd

Liverpool v Manchester United 17/01/2021 17:30
MY11 SAY 2-2 DRAW

The two biggest teams in the Premier League will face off in the top of the table clash as Liverpool will be welcoming Manchester United to the Anfield Stadium on Super Sunday.

 

In 56 Premier League meetings between these two teams, Liverpool have won 15 games, while Manchester United have won 28 matches, with 13 games ending in a draw. The Red Devils have defeated the Kops just once in their last 5 clashes, with 2 games ending in draws.

 

Liverpool will be without Diogo Jota, Konstantinos Tsimikas, Joe Gomez, and Virgil Van Dijk due to injury, while Joel Matip and Naby Keita are major doubts for the clash. Manchester United, on the other hand, will be without Phil Jones due to injury, while Anthony Martial, Nemanja Matic, Victor Lindelof, and Marcos Rojo are major doubts for this clash.

 

Manchester United are top of the table for the first time since 2013 and Liverpool are on a great run at Anfield and a win will take them above the Red Devils. This clash looks like a close encounter that could end in a draw or a narrow win for the Kops

Match of the Week

Inter Milan V Juventus

Inter Milan v Juventus 17/01/2021 20:45
MY11 SAY 2-2 DRAW

The biggest rivalry in Italian football takes center stage as Inter Milan will be welcoming defending champions Juventus to the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in the Derby d'Italia on Super Sunday.

 

In the last 26 Serie A meetings between these two teams, Inter have won 4 games, while Juventus have won 14 matches, with the other 8 games ending in a draw. The Nerazzurri have defeated the Old Lady just once in their last 8 encounters, losing 2 of their last 3 at home.

 

Inter Milan will be without Stefano Sensi, Matteo Darmian, Danilo D'Ambrosio, Andrea Pinamonti, and Matias Vecino due to injury. Juventus, on the other hand, will be without Federico Chiesa, Weston McKennie, and Paulo Dybala due to injury, while Matthijs de Ligt, Juan Cuadrado, and Alex Sandro will miss out due to positive COVID-19 test.

 

Inter are on a good run of form and are 3 points away from local rivals AC Milan at the top. Juventus, on the other hand, have been inconsistent this season, but with a Cristiano Ronaldo chasing a record as the most prolific goal scorer of all time, it will be difficult for the Nerazzurri to beat the Old Lady. This will be a close call that should end in a draw.
