3 Best Matches to Watch on Saturday
With the weekend's Premier League fixtures postponed due to the tragic death of Queen Elizabeth, we'll take a look at the three best matches to keep an eye on in the coming days.
Bundesliga - RB Leipzig vs Borussia Dortmund
Red Bull Arena forms the backdrop for a mouth-watering Bundesliga clash between RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund.
Domenico Tedesco paid the ultimate price for Leipzig's embarrassing 4-1 Champions League loss to Shakhtar Donetsk in midweek as former BVB manager Marco Rose prepares to make his touchline debut against ex-employers.
Unlike Die Roten Bullen, last season's Bundesliga runners-up have won four of their opening five league outings, three of which via an identical 1-0 scoreline.
On top of that, Marco Reus and his teammates eased past Copenhagen 3-0 in their curtain-raising Champions League fixture on Tuesday.
Ligue 1 - Paris Saint-Germain vs Brest
Fresh from a 2-1 home win over Juventus in midweek Champions League action, defending Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain welcome an out-of-sorts Brest at the Parc des Princes.
Except for an underwhelming 1-1 draw with Monaco at this venue a fortnight ago, Christophe Galtier's men have won their remaining five league matches via an aggregate score of 23-3.
Tipped for what would be a record-breaking 11th Ligue 1 title, Les Parisiens head into proceedings as overwhelming favourites to extend their winning league streak against Brest to ten games.
Michel Der Zakarian's lads have experienced a faltering start to the new top-flight campaign, going winless in five of their opening six league games (D2, L3).
La Liga - Cadiz vs Barcelona
Cadiz's thumping 3-0 defeat away to Celta Vigo last time out marked their worst-ever start to a new La Liga season, derailing their spirits ahead of Barcelona's upcoming visit to Andalusia.
Sergio Gonzalez's men have lost all five league games this season via an aggregate score of 10-0 and head into proceedings as the only side in Europe's top-five leagues yet to score in 2022/23.
By contrast, inspired by Robert Lewandowski's hat-trick, the Camp Nou outfit dismantled Viktoria Plzen 5-1 in their Champions League group stage opener on Wednesday.
Xavi Hernandez's high-flyers have strung together three consecutive league triumphs by an aggregate score of 11-1 since being held to a scoreless home draw to Rayo Vallecano on matchday one.
