MANCHESTER UNITED VS LIVERPOOL
Old rivalries will be revived when Man United face Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday. United are 6th and 4 points behind their rivals but are suffering from poor form. The Red devils have only picked up 1 point from a possible 9 in their last 3 matches. The match is of big importance particularly to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who is under pressure lately. Liverpool will be confident going into their match considering their good form and the form of Mo Salah. Salah is in red-hot form scoring in 9 consecutive matches going into this game.
BARCELONA VS REAL MADRID
The first El Clasico of the season kicks off when Barcelona clash with Real Madrid on Sunday. While the game has lost some of its importance and calibre over the years, it’s still a big game. Barcelona started the season poorly but seem to have recovered and are only 2 points behind their rivals. Real Madrid returned to winning ways against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League with a convincing 4-0 win. Los Blancos had suffered back-to-back defeats against FC Sheriff and Espanyol before the international break. Ballon d’Or candidate Karim Benzema is in rich form going into the game.
INTER VS JUVENTUS
Current Champions face former Champions in a Serie A classic when Inter host Juventus at the San Siro on Sunday. Both teams are used to vying for the Title but currently find themselves 3rd and 7th on the Table. Juventus will particularly be eager to move into the top 4 as they continue to recover from their disastrous start to the season. The Old Ladies are on a 6 match winning streak and seem to have also recovered from the loss of Cristiano Ronaldo. Inter who are surprisingly not doing bad considering the loss of their stars in the summer will also be looking to close the gap on 2nd placed AC Milan.
Juventus are in great form and have won their last 6 matches in a row. Click here to back Juventus to beat Inter @ whooping 3.40 odds (& other markets in Inter VS Juventus on Nairabet).
AS ROMA VS NAPOLI
The other Serie A classic on Super Sunday sees Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma facing league leaders Napoli at the Stadio Olimpico. AS Roma who started the season brightly have faded off and have now lost 4 of their last 6 games in all competitions. Their embarrassing 6-1 loss to Bodo/Glimt in the Europa Conference League is a stinging reminder that all is not well. Napoli meanwhile are in rich form and are the only team in Europe’s top 5 Leagues with a 100% record so far. Luciano Spalletti’s men will be keen to preserve that record. Their Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen is beaming with confidence with 9 goals in his last 10 matches.

MARSEILLE VS PSG
Marseille might not be in the same class as their now-rich rivals but Marseille VS PSG is still one of Ligue 1’s biggest rivalries. PSG and their shiny new stars are top of the League but they’re not entirely having it all going their way. That was evident in their shock 2-0 loss to Rennes earlier in October despite Neymar, Messi and Mbappe playing. Messi is still yet to score a goal in Ligue 1 and has admitted to finding the League tougher than La Liga. Marseille who are 3rd in Ligue 1 will be keen to emulate Rennes and inflict another defeat on their bitter rivals.
