Many clubs will be eager to extend their winning streak when they play their opponents in weekend matchups.
In England, Saturday’s Premier League matchup between Leicester City and Manchester City, the two teams that are sitting in the opposing ends of the standings, will take place at King Power Stadium. Although the Foxes are only one point above the relegation zone, their performances in back-to-back victories over Leeds United (2-0) and Wolverhampton (4-0) have given supporters cause for hope. In Germany, round 12 of the new Bundesliga season features a match between Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Dortmund at Deutsche Bank Park. Following back-to-back victories against Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia M’gladbach, Die Adler has been in excellent form recently and are aiming for their third straight league victory. In Spain, Valencia and Barcelona will square off at Estadio de Mestalla in the La Liga clash, and all eyes will be on the stadium. Los Che are considered underdogs in the match on Saturday as a result of their devastating 2-1 loss to Mallorca at the weekend, which saw the team plummet to ninth place in the standings. In the Serie A round 12 matchup against Sassuolo, Napoli will try to build on a spirited 1-0 victory against Roma. The Neapolitans aim to win their eighth game in a row, and bookmakers have them as heavy favourites to take home all three points from the match on Saturday. Amir Rrahmani, the injured defender, is still out, and Victor Osimhen, the Nigerian forward who scored the game-winning goal at Stadio Olimpico, should keep his spot up front.
