Wayne Rooney's team was unable to repulse the reserve staff of “Manchester United” in the framework of the FA Cup, now it is time to return to ordinary things - to fight for the playoffs of the Championship. In the 37th round, “Derby County” will take on their field “Blackburn”, which is located three steps from the six strongest teams of the tournament, while the “sheep” occupy only 13th place. Will the hosts manage to improve their tournament position based on the results of this meeting?
Of course, the Italian champions still have an obvious leading man who tends to hurt Atletico. Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 25 goals versus Atlético Madrid in all competitions – only versus Sevilla (27) has he netted more. The Portuguese forward has bagged four hat-tricks against Atlético, with two of those arriving in the Champions League (March 2019 & May 2017).

This is a game that Manchester United can't afford to lose. A nine point gap would make qualification for the Champions League even more difficult. Neither side are in the best of form and aren't that consistent. Chelsea have already lost twice to United this season and have dodgy home form. United need to improve their scoring rate and up against Chelsea's defence might just do that. A bet on both teams to score is the suggested wager.
Controversially high I fancy. France's favourite Kylian Mbappe has arrived and is getting absolutely mobbed, as you might expect. The guests are arriving It's a glitzy ceremony as usual with a lovely red carpet - with a Fiat hatchback parked in the middle of it. Anyway, Robert Lewandowski is here, looking well given that he's currently in rehab for an addiction to scoring goals.
RB Leipzig missed a chance to go second in the Bundesliga as they conceded late on to draw at home with Hertha Berlin. The visitors opened the scoring when Liverpool loanee Marko Grujic volleyed in from Marvin Plattenhardt's corner. Leipzig equalised through Lukas Klostermann's glancing header after a corner but then went down to 10 men when Marcel Halstenberg was dismissed. Patrik Schick put Leipzig ahead but Hertha made it 2-2 through Krzysztof Piatek's 82nd-minute penalty.
But players and managers believe the lack of clarity around this creates uncertainty over when teams can realistically be expected to start playing competitive matches. Restrictions in place for team training under 'Project Restart'What is the testing programme and can it be implemented?All players will be screened and tested repeatedly. It is estimated the Premier League are paying Hong Kong-based company Prenetics £4m for 40,000 home testing kits, with the information retained on a central data base.
Dijon currently sit 16th in Ligue 1 with one of the most bizarre form sheets you're likely to see. The Mustards have won just two of their last ten Ligue 1 matches, however, rather bizarrely, these two victories came against 3rd placed Rennes and current runaway leaders PSG. Dijon put in incredible performances to beat those two giants but have been unable to recreate that on a regular basis. They've managed to slip up to teams like Amiens (1-1), Metz (2-2) and Brest (0-2) but always somehow play out of their skin against the best teams in France. Outwith the victories over Rennes and PSG, Dijon have narrowly lost to Monaco (0-1) and Lille (0-1), drawn with Montpellier (2-2) and Lyon (0-0).
Barca lead the way with Real Madrid at present but know they will probably need three points here to stay on top. Ernesto Valverde’s side began November with a woeful 3-1 defeat at Levante and a dull 0-0 stalemate away to Slavia Prague. Barca have netted in five of their seven La Liga matches on the road.

Tousart, 22, joined Lyon from Valenciennes in 2015 and has made over 150 appearances, including 30 in UEFA club competitions. He has played 24 times for France's under-21 team. I really identify myself with the ambitions of the club (Hertha),\" Tousart said. What they're doing here in Berlin is really exciting and I want to be a part of it.
Brest have been alright going forward at home this season with eight goals in their last six matches at the Stade Francis-Le-Blé so we're backing them to convert here against Strasbourg. However, Dall'Oglio's men have been conceding so many chances recently and with Strasbourg scoring four goals in two of their last three matches we're expecting a few goals here. We think this will finish 3-1 to the visitors.
Brisbane Roar have been the model of an average side so far this season, trading wins and losses whilst they’ve scored and conceded eight goals at either end so far this season.

However, their hopes of adding League Cup and Champions League success to that have been dented by the injury to Mbappe. Mbappe had scored six goals in four appearances before football was suspended because of the coronavirus pandemicWith many players struggling to get up to speed after four months without competitive football, Mbappe was one of the most lively players on the pitch in the opening stages and it was his powerful shot that led to the opener as Jessy Moulin spilled the ball at Neymar's feet for the opener.
