Turkish Super Lig, NFL Playoffs And Much More On DStv And GOtv This Weekend ~Omonaijablog



Football fans on can look forward to even greater sporting variety, with some thrilling action coming their way on ESPN (DStv Channel 218 & GOtv Channel 38) and ESPN 2 (DStv Channel 219) from Friday 22 to Thursday 28 January 2021.

ESPN opens the weekend with a Turkish Super Lig clash between Genclerbirligi vs Trabzonspor (1:55pm LIVE on ESPN) on the afternoon of Saturday 23 January, followed by an Eredivisie clash between PSV and RKC Waalwijk later the same day (7:50pm LIVE on ESPN).

PSV coach Roger Schmidt has called on his team to continue their improvement despite putting together a solid season thus far: “In possession we could do a little better, normally we can keep the ball longer. We sometimes lose the ball a bit too easily. We also need to make sure we don’t give away so many chances. But in all I want the players to keep the same attitude and motivation.”


ESPN 2 viewers will be in for a basketball treat on the evening of Saturday 23 January right into the early hours of Sunday 24 January, with live thrills and spills from the NCAA College tournament across the United States (6pm – 5am LIVE on ESPN 2).

Texas Longhorns coach Shaka Smart has explained that unity and a common purpose has united his team and contributed to their strong showing so far: "I think any team that is able to have team success, the No. 1 ingredient has to be the common goal and being connected around that goal.”

Sunday 24 January features more top-flight Dutch action with Fortuna Sittard vs Ajax (12:05pm LIVE on ESPN), while the evening of Monday 25 January sees ESPN swing over to Turkey for Fenerbahce vs Kayserispor (4:55pm LIVE on ESPN).

Fenerbahce are one of the clubs most strongly linked with Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil, and the playmaker recently admitted that he was a fan of the Istanbul club as a youngster: "I grew up as a Fenerbahce fan as a kid in Germany - every German-Turkish person supports a Turkish team when they grow up in Germany. And mine was Fenerbahce. Fenerbahce is like Real Madrid in Spain. The biggest club in my country.”

Also on Sunday 24 into Monday 25 January, viewers see all the focus turn to the NFL playoffs, with the AFC Championship (9:05pm LIVE on ESPN 2) and NFC Championship deciders (12:40am LIVE on ESPN 2). The winners of the two matches will meet in the Super Bowl in two weeks’ time.

One of the biggest pieces of news coming out of the NFL in recent times has been Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson reportedly being unhappy with CEO Cal McNair’s hiring of former Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio as their general manager.

“I've come to understand that it's been reported that Deshaun feels left out of the process, but he and I had several visits and I understood his point of view before meeting with candidates," McNair said. "I've reached out to Deshaun about Nick's hire, and I look forward to him getting back to me when he returns from his vacation."

Viewers can also end off their first working day of the week with live airings of The Jump (9pm LIVE on ESPN) for all your news from the NBA, and NFL Live (10pm LIVE on ESPN) where the playoffs and looming Super Bowl will take centre stage.
