Reasons to reschedule and plan your excuses for the coming weekend. – Derby della Capitale is part of this Weekend Bangers

Weekend Bangers

January 25, 2020
Valencia vs Barcelona (La Liga)
Reverse fixture – Barcelona 5-2 Valencia
Luis Suárez came off the bench to add to goals for Barcelona for a massive win. Ansu Fati scored his second goal in two matches when he opened the scoring for Barcelona in just 2 minutes from kick-off.

The second league match for Barcelona’s new management team will be a test in an away match against Valencia.

Barcelona ‘just’ happens to be at the top of the current standings. As long as Real Madrid isn’t dropping points, Barcelona can’t afford to drop points if they want to remain in pole position.

Fenerbahce vs Istanbul Basaksehir (Super Lig)
Reverse fixture – İstanbul Başakşehir 1-2 Fenerbahce
A 90th minute goal handed all three points to Fenerbahce after getting two goals in the final quarter of the game to come from a goal down.

Two points is currently keeping Istanbul Basaksehir and Fenerbahce two positions away in the current Turkish Super Lig standings.

While playing in front of home supporters in this match, Fenerbahce would use a repeat result from their earlier meeting to leap from Istanbul Basaksehir.

Bayern Munich vs Schalke (Bundesliga)
Reverse fixture – Schalke 0-3 Bayern Munich
A Robert Lewandowski hattrick allowed Bayern Munich to leave with all three points.

Bayern Munich is 4 -points from the top of the league with over 50% of the season completed.
The plan here for Bayern is another win against a Schalke side that is right at the edge of getting a place in a Champions League qualifying position in the Bundesliga.

Torino vs Atalanta (Serie A)
Reverse fixture – Atalanta 2-3 Torino
Duvan Zapata’s brace was not enough to prevent Atalanta from a home defeat against Torino.

Atalanta haven’t won a match in three competitive matches. They’ve lost their place in the ‘top 4’ and would need the results here to help them get back there.

Torino is looking to do better than mid-table by bouncing back from defeat to Sassuolo in their last league match.



January 26, 2020
Inter Milan vs Cagliari (Serie A)
Reverse fixture – Cagliari 1-2 Inter Milan
Romelu Lukaku scored from the spot to hand Inter Milan a win on the road against a Cagliari that was winless at the time.
Inter have recently beaten Cagliari in the Coppa Italia by 4 goals to 1.

Roma vs Lazio (Serie A) Derby della Capitale
Reverse fixture – Lazio 1-1 Roma
Luis Alberto scored in the second-half to cancel out Roma’s first half lead.

Lazio goes into this fixture with an intent to widen the gap between themselves and Roma, while hoping to throw their hat into the league title race.
Fourth-place Roma is 7 points away from their city rivals Lazio.

Napoli vs Juventus (Serie A)
Reverse fixture – Juventus 4-3 Napoli
It took an own-goal to separate the two sides in their last league meeting. Napoli crawled from three goals down to get level, but a cruel own goal stripped them from picking up a point in Turin against Juventus.
Current form will suggest that Juventus will be heavy favorites despite playing away. Napoli’s recent results is nothing for the team to be proud of.

Lille vs Paris St. Germain (Ligue 1)
Reverse fixture – Paris St. Germain 2-0 Lille
The job was done in the first-half by PSG when Lille came to Paris.

Paris St. Germain has enough cushion at the top of the league to afford slipping in a match were Lille needs the right results to get into the ‘Top 4’ in the league standings’ or at least keep their place in 5th.

As in all Ligue 1 matches in recent history, Paris St. Germain will go in as the clear favorite to win.
