A clash between two historic Italian powerhouses heading in opposite directions headlines a Soccer Sunday of action from all over the world.
With 16 points to start their quest for a Serie A three-peat, unbeaten Juventus host traditional rival AC Milan on Sunday in a very important league match. Milan have only won two of their opening six matches in league play, and they will be without talented forward Mario Balotelli for their big trip to Turin. The two sides split their tense league meetings last season, and both will be gunning for all three points before the start of the international break.
Two more rivals will battle it out in France on Sunday. Defending champions Paris Saint-Germain are in second place heading into their massive Le Classique match against third-place Marseille. PSG will be looking to continue their impressive run against OM—the capital club registered three straight 2-0 wins against their bitter rivals last season.
The day’s action kicks off in the English Premier League, where three of the league’s top five clubs will be in action. League-leading Arsenal bring their impressive winning streak into The Hawthorns, where they will face a West Bromwich Albion side that is coming off a famous win at Manchester United. Elsewhere, fifth-place Chelsea travel to Norwich City, and third-place Tottenham Hotspur welcome West Ham United to White Hart Lane.
