Arsenal vs Manchester United, Manchester City vs Sheffield United, Others to Air Live On DStv and GOtv This Weekend ~Omonaijablog



DStv and GOtv customers get to witness back to back football action from the 2020-21 Premier LeagueLa Liga and Serie A seasons, with matches scheduled for Friday 29 January to Monday 1 February 2021.

The top clash from the Premier League this weekend is the meeting of Arsenal and Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium on the evening of Saturday 30 January at 6:30pm on SuperSport Grandstand and SuperSport Premier. This is considered one of the classic rivalries in English football, with the Red Devils and the Gunners having dominated through the 1990s and 2000s.

Though neither has been able to regain that kind of status in the past eight years or so, this remains a highlight on the Premier League calendar and offers a fascinating look into two teams trying to build themselves back to the absolute elite of performance.

After an awful first third of the season, Arsenal have shown major signs of progress under manager Mikel Arteta and will fancy their chances of completing a ‘double’ over United after a 1-0 win at Old Trafford back in November.

United have also made progress under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but he has continually urged his team not to get ahead of themselves and always keep their focus firmly on the next challenge – in this case, the Gunners.

The weekend’s action in the Premier League also sees champions Liverpool with a tricky trip to West Ham United on Sunday 31 January at 5:30pm on SuperSport Premier League; Leicester City and Leeds United will meet at the King Power Stadium on Sunday 31 January at 3pm on SuperSport Premier League for what promises to be a tactical arm wrestle between Brendan Rodgers and Marcelo Bielsa; and Manchester City will back themselves for another three-point haul when they host Sheffield United on Saturday 30 January at 4pm on SuperSport Premier League and SuperSport GOtv Select 2.

On the evening of Sunday 31 January, fans of La Liga see Barcelona host Athletic Bilbao at the Camp Nou on the evening of Sunday 31 January at 9pm on SuperSport La Liga and SuperSport GOtv La Liga.

Elsewhere in the Spanish top flight this weekend, champions Real Madrid will back themselves in a home clash with Levante on Saturday 30 January at 4:15pm on SuperSport La Liga and SuperSport GOtv La Liga, while title favourites Atletico Madrid will feel similarly confident for their trip to Estadio Ramon de Carranza to tackle Cadiz on Sunday 31 January at 4:15pm on SuperSport La Liga and SuperSport GOtv La Liga.

The round also has a potential thriller between Villarreal and Real Sociedad on Saturday 30 January at 9pm on SuperSport La Liga and SuperSport GOtv La Liga – two teams scrapping with Sevilla for what is likely to be the final place in next season’s UEFA Champions League – at Estadio de la Ceramica on Saturday night. As ever, the ‘Yellow Submarine’ will look to Nigerian star Samuel Chukwueze to spark their attack into life.

The headline match from Italy for this round sees Atalanta host Lazio on Sunday 31 January at 3pm on SuperSport Football and SuperSport GOtv Select 1 at the Gewiss Stadium in Bergamo on the afternoon of Sunday 31 January. These are two of the most attack-minded teams in Serie A it is no surprise that their last three meetings have produced 16 goals!

The weekend also features an ‘old school’ classic with Sampdoria welcoming champions Juventus to Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris on Saturday 30 January at 6pm on SuperSport Football and SuperSport GOtv Select 1. The clash sees a ‘master versus apprentice’ angle for the managers, with the wily old Claudio Ranieri looking to outsmart Andrea Pirlo.

Other matches to look forward to this weekend; Torino vs Fiorentina on Friday 29 January at 8:45pm on SuperSport Football and SuperSport GOtv Select 1, Everton vs Newcastle United at 1:30pm on SuperSport Premier League, Crystal Palace vs Wolverhampton Wanderers at 4pm on SuperSport Variety 1, Southampton vs Aston Villa at 9pm on SuperSport Premier League and SuperSport GOtv Football, Bologna vs Milan at 3pm on SuperSport Football and SuperSport GOtv Select 1, Internazionale vs Benevento at 8:45pm on SuperSport Football and SuperSport GOtv Select 1,  all on Saturday 30 January. Chelsea vs Burnley at 1pm on SuperSport Premier League, Leicester City vs Leeds United at 3pm on SuperSport Premier League, all on Sunday 31 January. Real Betis vs Osasuna on Monday 1 February at 9pm on SuperSport La Liga and SuperSport GOtv La Liga.
