Weekend Domestic League Fixtures
February 2, 2019
Everton vs Wolverhampton (English Premier League)
Wolverhampton leads the half of the Premier League that are currently not in the race for a Champions League football in the coming season. Only two points separate Wolves from Everton. Can Wolverhampton widen the gap between the two sides on Everton’s home ground?
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Dortmund (German Bundesliga)
Dortmund is 17 points clear from Frankfurt. Two teams that have proven over the course of this Bundesliga season to have the attacking prowess. Luka Jovic, Sebastien Haller, and Ante Rebic take on Pace Alcacer, Marco Reus, and Jadon Sancho.
Hertha Berlin vs Wolfsburg (German Bundesliga)
The earlier meeting between the two sides ended up as ‘2-2’ draw, with both teams getting a goal after the 90th minute. They are currently tied at 28 points in the Bundesliga standings. Will they find the result to separate them?
Real Sociedad vs Athletic Club (Spanish La Liga)
Athletic Club is steadily climbing up the La Liga table. An away victory against Real Sociedad will see Athletic Club get in the top half of the table after being in the relegation zone just 6 matches ago. Real Sociedad is winless in their last two league matches, so we shouldn’t expect them to be complacent in front of their home supporters.

Manchester City vs Arsenal (English Premier League)
9 points separate the two teams. Manchester City is losing grip on the league title after falling 5 points behind Liverpool. Arsenal’s ambitions to return to the Champions League football are resting on positive results from this fixture. After a mid-week defeat at Newcastle, Manchester City can’t afford to drop points in successive matches when Arsenal comes to visit. Arsenal can’t afford defeat if Chelsea and Manchester United pick up victories.
Roma vs AC Milan (Italian Serie A)
After a humiliating exit from the Coppa Italia, Roma will look to make amends by finishing the round by replacing AC Milan in 4th position in the Serie A standings.
Real Madrid vs Alaves (Spanish La Liga)
Recent poor results have seen Alaves fall out of the ‘top four’ in the La Liga standings. They shocked Real Madrid in their earlier meeting in the season with a ‘1-0’ win. Alaves will need to replicate that performance or risk falling out of the ‘top eight’ in the league standings. For Real Madrid, it is a great opportunity to close in on the top two teams in the league.
Lyon vs Paris St. Germain (French Ligue 1)
This is expected to put Paris St.Germain’s unbeaten run to the test. Will Lyon give a Neymar-less PSG their first defeat of the Ligue 1 season?
Saint-Etienne v Strasbourg (French Ligue 1)
A win for Saint-Etienne could mean a place in the top four if Paris St. Germain is victorious. A win for Strasbourg would see them skip above Saint-Etienne
