Topflight football returns to the big five European leagues this weekend. In the aftermath of the international break, injuries will play a big part in many of this week games. The season is young and the top teams will be looking to carry on where they left off as we head into a busy schedule of football.
Premier League: Liverpool v Leicester City
Brendan Rogers returns to Anfield this weekend with his high flying Leicester side who sit top of the table before this weekends fixtures. Only one point divides the two teams, a win for Leicester would see the Foxes remain top, Liverpool, however, are on the back of 63 game unbeaten home run and victory could see the champions top of the Premiership.
Both teams are hampered by injuries especially in defence. Van Dijk, Gomez, Alexander-Arnold and Thiago are unavailable, top scorer Salah who this week tested positive for coronavirus will also be absent. Klopp will be hoping Henderson and Robertson will return from international duty without any knocks and will be available to start.
Leicester also have key defenders Söyüncü and Amartey unavailable and the weekend looks to early for Castagne to return. Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel should be fit after a nasty collision playing for Denmark midweek. Red hot Jamie Vardy will be looking to take advantage of Liverpool’s makeshift defence adding to the 8 goals he has already scored this season.
This is the game of the weekend and a ticket for either team to rise up the rankings. Keep an eye out for exclusive bonuses and offers around this game.
La Liga: Atletico Madrid v Barcelona
All eyes would have been on Luis Suarez at the Wanda Metropolitana Stadium this Saturday in what would have been his first game against his former club. Unfortunately for manager Diego Simeone, the forward who already has five goals this season will miss the match due to a positive coronavirus test.
Atletico sit third in the table with 17 points and are unbeaten in the last five outings. Felix, the young and exciting Portuguese forward will be looking to cash in on Barcelona’s recent poor form and add to his five-goal tally, two of which came in Atletico’s last game a 4-0 win against Cadiz.
Barcelona put a stop to their poor start to the season in their last match with a 5-2 thumping against Real Betis. With only 11 points on the board and one win in five, manager Ronald Koeman will be without midfield duo Busquets and Couthino and will be hoping the four-goal teenager Ansu Fati and talisman Lionel Messi can help Barca prove the bookmakers wrong who have Atletico as favourites to win.
Serie A: Napoli v AC Milan
Serie A leaders AC Milan take on third-place Napoli in Italy’s standout game of the weekend. The Rossoneri are unbeaten in the last five yet could only manage a draw against Verona in their last match at the San Siro. Manager Stefano Pioli will be missing defender Andrea Conti and forward Ante Rebic. However, Serie A top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with eight goals already this season, will be fit to give Napoli a test and hope to continue his prolific start to the season.
Napoli travel to Milan knowing a win would take them level on points with the leaders. Striker Victor Osimhen will be sorely missed with a long term injury. For the second time in a month, Napoli have been hit with a positive coronavirus test. The latest coming for defender Elseid Hysaj whilst on international duty for Albania this week. Belgium forward Dries Mertens is in fine form, scoring against England midweek and is expected to play.

Bundesliga: Bayern Munich v Werder Bremen
For decades this fixture was traditionally one of Germany’s biggest games. Champions of Europe and sitting top of the Bundesliga with 18 points, FC Bayern are flying, losing only one of their first eleven matches. For Werder Bremen, it’s a different story. Werder sit in 10th position without a win in four matches. The last time the two teams faced each other the match ended 6-0 to Bayern, in fact, Bayern have been dominant in recent years winning 25 out 32 encounters.
Werder visit the Allianz Arena with forwards Niklas Fullkrug and Davie Selke looking likely to miss the match due to injury. Jiri Pavlenka, the Czech goalkeeper will need to be at his best facing one of the worlds best strikers in Lewandowski. The Polish hitman has hit the back of the net 11 times so far this season.
For Bayern, Corentin Tolisso and defender Joshua Kimmich are unlikely to play. Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer will be wanting to forget conceding six for Germany against Spain midweek.
Ligue 1: Monaco v PSG
Two of the giants of French football, PSG travel to Monaco five points clear at the top of the table, winning all of their last five matches. Monaco, the last team apart from PSG to win Ligue 1, are placed in sixth position. With a valuable win against Nice on their last outing, coach Niko Kovac will be hoping a home victory over the champions could see his side climb the table.
PSG will continue to be without key players Draxler, Icardi and Verratti. Top scorer Kylian Mbappé will play. Injuries for Monaco mean experienced midfielder Golovin will miss the match. Goalkeeper Lecomte will again be missing with a hand injury. Striker Wissam Ben Yedder will look to improve on the six goals he has scored so far this season.
