Will Der Klassiker Decide Title Race?

Der Klassiker

Tomorrow Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund meet in potential title decider. The matchup between first and second place in the Bundesliga is called Der Klassiker or the “German Clasico”.

Since the foundation of the Bundesliga in 1963, they are two of the most successful teams in German football, having won a combined total of 21 of the past 25 Bundesliga titles as of 2019. The two teams also met in the 2013 UEFA Champions League Final.

Bayern Munich head coach Hansi Flick says that the latest Der Klassiker is not a title decider, despite the fact that a win for leaders Bayern at the Allianz Arena would move them seven points clear of Dortmund with six games left.

Olympique Marseille v Paris Saint-Germain Rivalry: Short But Passionate

PSG vs Marseille

The Olympique Marseille v Paris Saint-Germain football rivalry is known by two names, Le Classique and the Derby de France. This is not a rivalry born from proximity, as many are. The two teams are located in cities in different regions of France. It is, instead, a social and cultural rivalry, as Olympique Marseille represents the working class people and port city of Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain is seen as being associated with the ultimate bastion of French society and culture, Paris. It is Marseille, the power center of the south, versus Paris the capital city in the north.

Dortmund And Schalke Rivalry- The Revierderby

Dortmund v Schalke

The Borussia Dortmund v Schalke 04 rivalry is known as the Revierderby, translated the “territory,” or the Ruhr derby. The match is known as ‘the mother of all derbies’ for a reason. It is one of the fiercest rivalries in world football as two of the game’s most passionate sets of fans vie for local bragging rights in Germany’s industrial heartland.

The cities of Dortmund and Gelsenkirchen are separated by less than 20 miles in the Ruhr region. While religious, economic and political differences spice up other derbies, the Revierderby is split simply across one divide: Are you Black-and-Yellow or Royal Blue? There is no middle ground.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claimed Bruno Fernandes had energised “the whole club” but insists Manchestre United still need new players after their derby victory over Manchester City.

United boss Solskjaer also hailed the character of the January signing after he had the last laugh in a heated exchange with City manager Pep Guardiola late in United’s 2-0 success at Old Trafford.

Portugal midfielder Fernandes, who set up the opening goal for Anthony Martial, put his fingers to his lips after arguing with Guardiola moments before Scott McTominay sealed victory in injury time.

Juventus End Milan Title Hopes In Derby D’Italia Win

Juventus v Inter

Juventus returned to the top of Serie A after goals from Aaron Ramsey and Paulo Dybala earned them a 2-0 Derby D’Italia victory over Inter at an empty Allianz Stadium.

Maurizio Sarri’s side were clinical in a surreal atmosphere – supporters have been barred from attending matches until April 3 amid coronavirus precautions – securing a third consecutive league win after Ramsey netted for the second game running, while substitute Dybala doubled the hosts lead with a scintillating strike.

Cristiano Ronaldo failed to find the net for the first time in 12 league matches on a night when he could have set a new Serie A record goalscoring streak, the Portugal star missing two excellent late chances.

Real Madrid With Massive Clasico Win

El Clasico In USA 2020

Real Madrid have returned to the top of La Liga thanks to a late 2-0 win over rivals Barcelona in tight El Clasico clash at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Vinicius Junior and Mariano Diaz’s goals took them a point clear of their bitter rivals at the top of the Liga table and gave them the better head-to-head record, which could be crucial in such a tight title race.

Certainly, there is little to choose between the two teams, as Sunday’s game showed. This entertaining, end-to-end battle at the Santiago Bernabeu between two clearly flawed teams could have gone either way.

Arsenal v Chelsea

The Arsenal v Chelsea rivalry pits the two most successful teams in London. Yes, Arsenal’s rivalry with North London neighbors Tottenham Hotspur is more bitter, but when Arsenal and Chelsea meet, there is usually a trophy, or Champions League place up for grabs.

The competitive nature of the fixtures involving the Gunners and the Blues became more intense in the 1930s even though the teams had been meeting for more than 25 years.

Merseyside Derby: The Dirtiest Match In Premier League History

The Toffees are looking for their first victory in this fixture in eight-and-a-half years, while the visitors boast an incredible record at Goodison Park.

EVERTON’S ABYSMAL RUN

Eighteen. That’s how many times Everton have faced Liverpool without that sweet taste of victory.

Their last Merseyside derby win came way back in October, 2010, when Tim Cahill and Mikel Arteta scored at Goodison to give David Moyes’ men a 2-0 triumph.

Liverpool vs Man United: The Biggest Match In England

The number 19 has a lot of significance with Manchester United and Liverpool fans.

United’s 19th title, in 2011, saw them overtake Liverpool and completed the famous perch job on that lot down the road.

Prior to Ferguson, Liverpool were the most successful club in England, but now over the three decades since Ferguson’s arrival, United have taken that throne.

But here is another 19 they may not be so keen on at Old Trafford. Lose on Sunday at Anfield and United will be 19 points behind their bitter rivals. Nineteen points and it is not even Christmas.
