From England to Spain, passing through Italy or Korea, the football fixture list this weekend offers very few clashes between the top teams. That said, at the beginning of the season with everything still to play for, it is worthwhile to make predictions that will upset the odds! Tipsters, get to your grids...

 

Spain : the Colchoneros have no other choice!

In La Liga, the favourites shouldn't have too much trouble this week. Barcelona play host to newly promoted Eibar who are a talented side (but very experienced at this level), whilst 2nd placed Valencia play away from home at La Coruna who are currently bottom of the table. Athletico Madrid have an opportunity to make up lost ground against an unpredictable Espanyol whilst Real Madrid are expected to continue their impressive form as they play away at Levante.

 

Italy: Inter Milan - Naples? All or nothing...

All eyes will be on Inter - Naples which is already a key fixture for both sides who have already lost a lot of ground on their rivals. The same can be said for Fiorentina - Lazio which will be a nerve racking experience for the Tifosi. AC Milan fans will also be crossing their fingers - the Rossoneri travel to Verona to play a Hellas team who are neck and neck with them in Serie A. No such envisaged problems for Juventus. The Old Lady should comfortably deal with a  Sassuolo side that are without a win in 6 games.

 

England: Chelsea setting the pace.

The outright leaders Chelsea should continue their good form. Crystal Palace do not seem capable of stopping the Blues' progress. As for the Reds of Liverpool, the trip to play QPR, rock bottom of the league, is an ideal opportunity to make up lost ground on the leading pack. Same objective for Arsenal, but Hull City, who have taken only 2 points per season, will prove tough  opposition at the Emirates. Finally, Manchester City have a lot to play for against a Tottenham side ready to pounce on any slip up. One false move and the Citizens could find themselves 8 points adrift of the leaders. Newcastle are looking for their first win of the season against Leicester which is definitely a possibility.
