Group E: This group will see a clash between the Europa League winner of last season, Sevilla and Premier League side Chelsea, as the Blues will love to turn up against another Spanish side. They are paired with Krasnodar and French side Rennes.

 

Group F: Bundesliga side, Borussia Dortmund are the only former champion in this group. Their clash with high scoring Lazio and Zenit Saint Petersburg will be interesting. Naija stars David Okereke and Emmanuel Bonaventure will feature for Club Brugge.

 

Group G: In this group, the only fixture that will attract most football lovers is the clash between Juventus and Barcelona, not because of the two clubs, but because of arguably the greatest players of all time, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. The other teams in the group are Dynamo Kyiv and Ferencváros.

 

Group H: The last group is the toughest of all and it is difficult to choose a favourite between three of the four clubs in the group. Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United, and RB Leipzig are the top 3 teams in this group, while İstanbul Başakşehir is the 4th club in the group.

Inter Milan V AC Milan

Zlatan recovers from COVID-19 with a brace to win the derby for Milan over Inter - RESULT: 1 - 2

Zlatan Ibrahimovic put up a brilliant performance by scoring a brace to hand AC Milan all 3 points against Inter Milan in the Derby della Madonnina at the San Siro Stadium on Saturday.

 

Ibrahimovic won a penalty early on in the game and he missed, but the Swedish striker scored from the rebound in the 13th minute. The big striker then scored the second 3 minutes later. Former Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku pulled one back for the home side, but it was not enough to salvage a point.

 

AC Milan are now top of the Serie A table with a 100% record of 4 wins in 4 matches, while Inter are 6th on the log with 7 points in their opening 4 games, and they could go down further, depending on the results of the other games.

 

Can Inter or AC Milan beat Juventus to the Scudetto?

Former Naija Super Eagles forward leaves England for Russia

Former Naija Super Eagles forward, Victor Moses has left English club, Chelsea, to join Russian side Spartak Moscow on another loan spell, after spending last season on loan at Inter Milan.

Match of the Week

Man City V Arsenal

Manchester City v Arsenal 17/10/2020 17:30
MY11 SAY 3-1

This is the battle between the boss and his apprentice as Mikel Arteta will lead his Arsenal team to face his former boss Pep Guardiola and Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

 

In 46 Premier League meetings between these two teams, Manchester City have won 13 matches, while Arsenal have won 23 games, with 10 matches ending in a draw. The Cityzens have won their last 5 EPL clashes, scoring 3 goals in four of them.

 

Man City stars, Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling picked up a little knock on international duty and are doubts for this clash. Sergio Agüero, Gabriel Jesus, and Oleksandr Zinchenko are expected to miss this tie as they are just recovering from injury. Arsenal, on the other hand, also have a few injury concerns. Captain Pierre Emerick Aubameyang is a doubt due to a sprained ankle. Kieran Tierney is a doubt due to a virus. Shkodran Mustafi, Gabriel Martinelli, Pablo Mari Villar, and Calum Chambers will all miss due to injury.

 

Arsenal have started the season well, only losing to champions Liverpool, but host Manchester City have had a bad start, having a negative goal difference for the first time in over a decade. But you will fancy Guardiola’s side to pick all 3 points in this match.

 

You can catch the game live on DSTV channel 203, SuperSport Premier League on Saturday October 17 2020, by 5:30pm Naija time.
