Spanish La Liga | Saturday 3 December | Camp Nou | 17:15

All heads turn to Spain this weekend as Barcelona and Real Madrid go head-to-head in the biggest rivalry in world football. The two giants are among the richest and most successful football clubs in the world and have in their ranks, arguably the greatest two players that have ever lived – Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Real Madrid lead the head-to-head results in competitive matches with 93 wins to Barcelona's 90, while the Catalans lead in total matches with 109 wins to Los Blancos’ 97. Messi is the highest goalscorer in the El Clasico with 21 goals, but Ronaldo is the leading scorer in the league with 10 goals to his name, and is also a firm-favourite to pip Messi to the 2016 Ballon d’Or trophy. With all that being said, let’s take a closer look at what promises to be another cracking encounter!

Telkom Knockout | Saturday 26 November | Mbombela Stadium | 18:00

Orlando Pirates will get a shot at revenge when they travel to take on SuperSport United at the Mbombela Stadium. The Sea Robbers were humiliated the last time these sides met, with Matsatsantsa claiming a resounding 6-1 victory over the Bucs. That defeat will always be remembered in Pirates’ history, with former coach Muhsin Ertugral packing his bags and resigning out of embarrassment or disgust – only he knows. That said, all credit must be given to Stuart Baxter’s side who were a class above. But could Pirates get their revenge in the Telkom Knockout Cup? Or will SuperSport cause more misery to the Bucs faithful?

League-leaders Chelsea will host Tottenham on Saturday evening in what promises to be a feisty encounter at Stamford Bridge.Meetings between the two clubs deliver controversy and contention by the bucket-load, and an atmosphere of barely contained hostility in the stands. It is no secret that this mutual hatred runs deep throughout both players and supporters. The last time these sides met: Spurs needed three points to stay in the title race, while Chelsea were out of sorts and with nothing to play for. Goals from Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son gave Spurs a 2-0 lead at half-time, but Chelsea fought back to draw level through strikes from Gary Cahill and Eden Hazard, which ended Tottenham’s title hopes as Leicester were crowned champions. Chelsea come into the clash as the Premier League’s form team, while Spurs remain the only undefeated team in the league.
