Hot off the press from a wild round of cup fixtures across Europe football is remaining as exciting as ever. Champions League and Europa football is within touching distance, so here are the can’t miss stories from across the globe.
This Weekend’s Must-Watch Games:
Leicester City vs Liverpool – Saturday 12:30pm – BT Sport 1
A battle between third and fourth in the Premier League, but this year it could be so much more.
Two sides who have a point to prove of late, Leicester enter with no losses in their last three games, whereas Liverpool have suffered defeat in both of their previous two fixtures.
On a personal level, Rodgers has never beaten Klopp in their previous meetings. And has not managed a win over his previous side in almost ten years. With Liverpool’s Tuesday trip to face RB Leipzig on the mind, could this come to an end?
West Brom vs Manchester United – Sunday 14:00pm – Sky Sports Main Event
If goals are what you want this weekend then look no further. While the previous eight meetings have not delivered on the goal front, I firmly expect Sunday to be different.
West Brom have conceded at least two goals in their previous nine matches, meanwhile, United have scored thirteen in their previous three.
With an almost full-strength eleven at Man United’s disposal, and The Red Devils chasing the title, we could well see another routing.
Inter Milan vs Lazio – Sunday 19:45pm – Premier Sport
The twice-yearly meeting of Lazio and Inter in the Serie A always proves to be a fiery affair. Their previous eight meetings have seen five red cards.
The stakes are high this year as well. Lazio are playing some exceptional football sitting in fifth place, meanwhile, Inter have found themselves second, chasing inner-city rivals AC for the title.

Football Worth Following – BAHFA Ghana
BAHFA Ghana have maintained one clear aim throughout their three-year existence, to be “championing academic success through football”.
In Kpone, Ghana football is life, it is your bread and butter. For so many kids, however, the lack of an educational support system puts football on the back burner. BAHFA provide everything from stationary, textbooks and football equipment to help turn so many children’s dream a reality.
Offering an environment for boys to form lifelong friendships whilst playing the game they love. BAHFA now has 50 registered players, and have gained registration with both the Ghana FA and FIFA. These actions are paving the way for the boys to enter Ghana’s youth leagues.
