While we’ve got an eye on the weekend’s fixtures, let’s take a look at some talking points from the past weekend.
It seems another Liverpool slip up is on the cards again after the Reds could only manage yet another draw against West Ham. Jurgen Klopp’s men may be the top team in England at the moment. But they won’t be as comfortable as they were before as their lead has now been reduced to just three points.
Their past six games in all competitions have seen them with a W2, D2, L2 record.
Both teams have scored in five of those six games.
Will both teams score in their next game against Bournemouth?

When Barcelona dropped two points against Valencia on Saturday, it was the incentive Atletico Madrid needed to pummel Real Betis on Sunday. A win would have seen Diego Simeone’s men move within three points of the log leaders. But the only team that won in the top four was Real Madrid. With Los Blancos just two points behind Atleti, this weekend’s Madrid derby will be fiercely contested.
What kind of draw do you think it will be this time around: a goalless draw or a draw with both sides scoring?

Bayern scoring first against Leverkusen must have been a delight to those rooting for the Bavarians to win. But the Munich outfit could not finish the game as winners, thus losing the chance to catch up on Dortmund. This Bundesliga season may just have a winner that is not Bayern after all.
Lyon was always going to be a tough opponent to crack for PSG (with or without Neymar). PSG’s rollercoaster ride to the title hit a bump this past weekend when Lyon defeated the champions. It was PSG’s first defeat of the season in the league. Still 10 points ahead, there’s not much fuzz about this loss.
Piatek is proving to be a good bargain for AC Milan. The Polish striker netted yet again for Milan, making it his third goal in two games. Arguably the biggest surprise of the weekend was Parma’s comeback from going 3-1 down against Juventus. The old lady has now gone two games without a win in all competitions.
