Top 5 matches to see this weekend. Borussia Dortmund v Bayern Munich

Top 5 matches to see this weekend. Borussia Dortmund v Bayern Munich

The clash between German giants and more top matches to see this weekend.

Arsenal v Southampton
In the summer few could think this fixture would be a real attraction as Southampton was not more than a mid-table club with new overseas manager. However, 11 matches into the season The Saints lie third in the table just three points behind Arsene Wenger’s side and might top the League come Saturday night under certain circumstances. They have only conceded five goals so far and some of their players, such as Adam Lallana, Jay Rodriguez and Rickie Lambert got call-ups from Roy Hodgson to play for the national team against Chile and Germany. However, only Manchester City score more goals than Arsenal and the match at The Emirates is definitely worth watching.

CSKA Moscow v Spartak Moscow
If you fancy taking a look at Eastern European football you would undoubtedly spot the Moscow derby between CSKA and Spartak. The current champions, who represent the country in the Champions League and take on Bayern Munich next week, host fierce rivals Spartak, twenty-one-time champions. The derby is aslo infamously known for rivalry between the fans, called the Horses and the Meat.

Nantes v Monaco
Two famous French clubs that returned to the top flight after the season 2012/2013 have immediately become contenders for Champions League spots. Ambitious southern outfit, run by Russian tycoon, even aim the Ligue 1 title. Still, The Canaries are just three points adrift the top three and will take over their opponents if winning on Sunday.

Everton v Liverpool
The Merseyside derby has not been so important for years as the clubs were struggling outside top places. This time around both Roberto Martinez and Brendan Rogers manage to keep the clubs fighting for European places and are still dreaming of title challenge. It will be the first Merseyside clash for the Spaniard as he replaced David Moyes at the helm of Everton last summer.

Borussia Dortmund v Bayern Munich
Totally must see for all football admirers as Jurgen Klopp seems to be the only manager able to stop the Bavarian machine. Guardiola’s side made a four-point gap at the top of the table and will be almost impossible to reach if they manage to get a victory at Signal Iduna Park on Saturday. Klopp has serious defence concerns as five of his players featured in a recent match against England at Wembley and Mats Hummels and Marcel Schmelzer joined Neven Subotic in the club’s infirmary. However, Łukasz Piszczek seems to have recovered from a long-term problem. Guardiola has a much better roster to choose from.
