Battle of the Reds as Liverpool and Arsenal face off at Anfield

It’s another weekend of football action and fans can look forward to the best football action from the Premier League, LaLiga and Serie A schedule for 25 to 28 September, 2020.

For the Premier League this weekend, Liverpool and Arsenal are scheduled to meet at Anfield on the evening of Monday 28 September. The Reds and the Gunners are set for an explosive encounter which will feature prolific African goal scorers such as Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Liverpool will be looking for revenge against Arsenal, given that the teams’ last two meetings have both gone the way of the London side: 2-1 in a Premier League clash in mid-July and a penalty shootout triumph in the Community Shield late last month.

Other picks for Premier League this weekend are Crystal Palace vs Everton, Brighton & Hove Albion v Manchester United at, West Bromwich Albion v Chelsea and Burnley vs Southampton. On Sunday 27 September EPL includes; Sheffield United vs Leeds United, Tottenham Hotspur vs Newcastle United, Manchester City vs Leicester City and West Ham United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The top clash for LaLiga sees champions Real Madrid head to Estadio Benito Villamarin to face Real Betis. Los Verdiblancos have been a bogey team for the capital side in recent times, notably defeating Zinedine Zidane’s side 2-1 in their last meeting in March (prior to the season suspension) to extend their unbeaten run in the rivalry to three matches.

Barcelona will face Villarreal while Sevilla battle Cadiz. Barcelona and Villarreal are back after being given the first two match days off to have extra recuperation time from last season’s UEFA Champions League and Europa League campaigns.

The headline match from Serie A is the Sunday night clash of Roma and Juventus at the Stadio Olimpico in the ‘Eternal City’.

Elsewhere, Internazionale will have their first match of the season when they host Fiorentina at the San Siro in the late kick-off on Saturday evening.
