Cup of Libertadores
Semi-finals, second leg( agg ). ( 0 : 0)
The second address of the quarter is a typical Copa Libertadores 2000 final, which is served with an overpowering North American flavor. Palmeiras are strong at home and heavy favorites, but on September 29, they were completely outplayed and barely threatened. Weverton, their goalkeeper, must be credited with keeping the game 0 — 0 at La Bombonera.
The left-sided Valentin Barco and Edinson Cavani link up properly for Boca, while the Alviverde struggle in the last second without injured wing Dudu. And in Sergio Romero, a former goaltender for Man United, the Argentines have the ideal shot-stopper in case of shootout. I anticipate Boca will make it to the finish line somehow.
Premier League of England
Arsenal had their best season in many years only six months ago, finishing at the top of the group and poised to finally win the championship that had been eluding them since 2004. That was until they traveled to Manchester City on Matchweek 33 and were brutally defeated by a score of 4-1, essentially putting an end to their name aspirations. The Gunners will be eager to make amends and show everyone they are in for a title race once more as they now trail City by just one point following their resounding 4 — 0 victory at Bournemouth.
With Rodri suspended for three games after collecting a red card against Nottingham Forest on September 23, the Citizens are without their key midfielder until after the Arsenal match. What better time to strike? “I think Arsenal have got every chance [to win the league this season],” said former Gunners legend Ray Parlour in his exclusive interview with GetMindApps.com. “You need a bit of luck along the way, but certainly they’ve got every opportunity to.”
World Cup finals for CONMEBOL
Another spicy game of Latin American football, early in the World Cup finals for CONMEBOL this time. Although it is just the third of the 18 matchweeks in the campaign, Brazil and Argentina are already top with two wins apiece, while Colombia and Uruguay look like they are set to compete for the third spot. La Celeste lost their last match against Ecuador and, with the Brazil fixture looming on October 18, can hardly afford another setback.
Despite having players of such skills as Mateus Uribe from Porto, Juan Cuadrado from Inter, and Luis D’az from Liverpool, Colombia only managed to score one goal in their two previous games and will still heavily rely on their defense. Do not anticipate many objectives in this situation, but do anticipate a fair combat.
Finals for the UEFA European Championship
On par with the England vs. Italy match that takes place four days later, this was one of the top two worldwide games in Europe in October. Amsterdam’s home crowd will anticipate the Oranje to exact revenge for a 4 — 0 loss to Kylian Mbappé in the first round of games.
It’s not an easy process, though, as France is flawless with five wins out of five and the Netherlands is trailing by six points with the game in hand. However, the hosts’ recent 2 — 1 friendly loss to Germany may motivate them and re-ignite their competition for the group’s top spot.
Premier League of England
Matchweek 9 , & nBSP, And N.B.S.,
Brighton were a revelation of the last season in the Premier League and continue to surprise even without manager Graham Potter who left for Chelsea last September (and got sacked since then). Roberto De Zerbi picked up where Potter left off and enhanced the Seagulls’ style which includes drawing teams out by baiting the press and sharp changes of pace and direction of the attack.
With 19 goals, Brighton leads Pep Guardiola’s Man City in possession( 62.4 % v 66.5 %) and shots( 17.7 %, 18.1 ) as of October 3. Despite the fact that their 6 — 1 loss to Aston Villa on September 30 dampened optimism, I am still very interested in watching this conflict between the two outstanding tacticians.
Serie A in Italy
The Milan vs. Juventus games do not have a designated name, unlike the Derby d’Italia matches between Inter and Juve, but they are still tournament games that are at least as brutal. Particularly then that UEFA has barred Juventus from participating in German competitions for violating club licence and financial fair play regulations while Milan is enjoying success in the league and longing for their next Scudetto star.
The Rossoneri made a number of decent acquisitions in the summer bringing in the likes of Loftus-Cheek, Okafor and PuliÅ¡iÄ. Juve, on the contrary, were very quiet on the transfer market, clearly lacking that UEFA Champions League money. What better time for Milan to make their mark on this Serie A campaign?
La Liga in Spanish
Do you really need an explainer from me on why you should watch El Clásico? Well, because it’s El Clásico! Despite numerous problems on and off the pitch, BarÃ§a and Madrid routinely occupy the two top lines in La Liga standings (as of October 3) and still boast of exciting players to watch.
Robert Lewandowski of Barcelona, who is 35 years old and has already scored five objectives, shows no signs of slowing down( some might even say he is getting older ). While Vini Jr. is rediscovering his form after an injury, true faithful are praying for the health of the new filing Jude Bellingham, the league’s best scoring. Who do you want to be around?
