For the second straight week, a showdown between EPL powerhouses serves as the marquee attraction of the weekend.
Manchester United travels to Stamford Bridge on Sunday to take on Chelsea in a rematch of last May’s UEFA Champions League final, won by the Red Devils. Man Utd is coming off a disappointing loss to Liverpool and will need at least a point from this match to avoid having Chelsea pull away at the top of the standings.
The match should also signal the season EPL debut for Cristiano Ronaldo, who made his return from ankle surgery at midweek against Villarreal in Champions League play.
Man U vs. Chelsea isn’t the only quality match this weekend. here is a rundown of the Top Five matches to watch this weekend:
This weekend’s Top Five Matches
1. Manchester United at Chelsea. Easily the best match of the weekend. A real can’t-miss encounter.
2. Werder Bremen at Bayern Munich. Two of the best offensive teams in Germany should put on an entertaining show.
3. Lazio at AC Milan. Lazio is off to a fast start in Serie A. AC Milan? Not so much. Despite that, this should be an intense clash.
4. D.C. United at Los Angeles Galaxy. You might want to have my head checked for including this game in the Top Five but I can’t see this game not having four or five goals and some wide-open soccer.
5. Sevilla at Real Betis. You can’t go with wrong with an intense rivalry like this one, even if Betis isn’t as song as it once was.
