3 Academy prospects Paris Saint-Germain didn’t capitalize03 April 2020 / Miguel Coelho
Paris Saint-Germain has an history of wasting their youth talent. Who are they?
This Friday starts a new matchday in the Top-5 European leagues, with Dijon-PSG opening the Ligue 1 and with other great matches like Real Madrid-Betis in La Liga, Aston Villa-Liverpool in the Premier League, Eintracht-Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga or Roma-Napoli in Serie A as the main courses of the weekend.
The leadership of the PSG in France is not at risk, since it maintains a difference of eight points at the head of the classification after 11 matches and before its visit this Friday to Dijon, bottom team of the table with only 9 points.
In other important duels of the weekend, Olympique Marseille (7th) visits Lille (3rd) and with a triumph could overcome its rival in the classification. In addition, Girondins Bordeaux (9th) receives Nantes, the great stand-out of the season that occupies the second place, and Saint-Etienne (12th) and Monaco (11th) face each other looking for a victory that will return them to the first positions of the table.
The matchday in England opens on Saturday with the visit of Manchester United (7th) to Bournemouth (9th) with both teams equaled with 13 points, and that same day the leader Liverpool will face Aston Villa (15th) as a visitor looking to extend his unbeaten record.
Waiting for a setback of the ‘Reds’ will be Manchester City, which will try to reduce its six-point disadvantage when it receives Southampton (18th). Arsenal (5th)-Wolves (12th) and Watford (20th)-Chelsea (4th) complete the matches on Saturday, while Crystal Palace (6th)-Leicester (3rd) and Everton (16th)-Tottenham (11th) will close the play on Sunday.
Barcelona is the leader in Spain and will try to keep the tip when visiting Levante (14th) on Saturday, while its most immediate pursuer, Real Madrid, will play that same day an attractive match against a Betis (16th) in need in the Santiago Bernabeu.
In addition, Sevilla (5th) and Atlético de Madrid (4th) dispute the most interesting match of the weekend, with both teams equaled in 20 points and only two short from the leadership. Already on Sunday, in other duels at the top of the classification Villarreal (7th) receives Athletic (8th), while Granada (3rd) will do the same with Real Sociedad (6th) to try to stay in the first positions.
The first meeting of the matchday in Italy is also one of the most attractive, since Rome (4th) receives Napoli (6th) on Saturday at the Olympic Stadium with only one point of difference between both teams before this confrontation. In addition, that same day the Turin derby will be played, in which Juventus will defend the leadership against a Torino team (13th) in need of a victory.
Hoping for a stumble from the ‘Vecchia Signora’ will be Inter Milan, which is second one point away and will visit Bologna (11th). In other important duels of the day, Atalanta risks its third position against Cagliari (7th), while in the last game on Sunday Milan (10th) receives Lazio at home (5th) trying to redirect its irregular start of the season.
In Germany there will also be football this Friday with the duel between Hoffenheim (10th) and Paderborn (18th), although the best matches of the weekend will come on Saturday, when Bayer Leverkusen (8th) will face Borussia Mönchengladbach, surprising German football leader with a point of advantage over Bayern Munich, who will visit Eintracht Frankfurt (9th) that same day.
In addition, Borussia Dortmund (5th) and Wolfsburg (4th) are measured in a duel of contenders in order to approach the top spot of the championship, while Leipzig (6th) receives Mainz (13th) and Werder Bremen (12th) face an in-tune Freiburg (3rd) in other interesting duels of the matchday.
