Spanish La Liga: El Clasico Preview

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane and Barcelona's talisman Lionel Messi

The football world will come to a screeching halt this Saturday afternoon as club legend as a player, Ronald Koeman takes charge of his beloved Barcelona for the first time as a manager in the 245th edition of El Clasico. At the opposite dugout, Zinedine Zidane will be hoping to distance reigning champions Real Madrid from their greatest rivals and give Los Blancos an early advantage in the hopes of defending their La Liga title.

Spanish La Liga: Gameweek 7 Preview

Barcelona's number 10 Lionel Messi

It seems like we will have one of the most unpredictable La Liga seasons ever. Playing behind closed doors and not having proper pre-season seems to have affected a lot of teams and we will see even more upsets in the coming weeks. Real Madrid, Sevilla, Valencia and Barcelona were all on the losing end in the last round. At this rate, I won’t be too surprised if we have a small team winning or at least challenging for the league. It’s the Clasico this weekend which means Barca or Los Blancos – possibly both – will again drop points.

Kaizer Chiefs vs Mamelodi Sundowns Preview

Mamelodi Sundowns coaching team

Last season’s title rivals, Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns, kick-start the DStv Premiership with a mouth-watering encounter to look forward to at the FNB Stadium this Saturday. Both clubs have new coaches in charge, but the objective remains the same: bring home the glory or pressure will slowly start to mount. Gavin Hunt got his Kaizer Chiefs tenure off to a winning start, coming from behind to knock Maritzburg United out of the MTN8, while Manqoba Mngqithi and Rhulani Mokwena’s managerial career as joint-head coaches got off to a disappointing start as Masandawana were eliminated in the MTN8 by Bloemfontein Celtic.
