Premier League, La Liga and Serie A preview, 5-7 November 2021

 

SuperSport viewers on DStv and GOtv can look forward to extended action from the Premier League, La Liga  and Serie A, with matches scheduled to run from Friday 5 to Sunday 7 November 2021.

 

DStv and GOtv is the only true home of football in Africa, offering a range and depth of action that no other rival can match – it’s literally ‘Unbeatable Football’! If you’re going to spend your money on something, it may as well be on the best football in the world.

 

The top clash from the Premier League this weekend is the Manchester derby between United and City from Old Trafford in the early afternoon of Saturday 6 November. Always a heated showdown, this battle will have even more tension than usual as the Red Devils look to claim the scalp of the current champions to renew flagging hopes that they can challenge for the title.

 

Yet the Citizens have looked one of the most capable teams in the Premier League this season and manager Pep Guardiola will expect them to assert themselves at the ‘Theatre of Dreams’. “[The Manchester derby] is always a difficult, complicated game,” said the Man City boss. “United have such great quality, players who can change the game so quickly, but we also have our own strengths. It will be a fantastic game.”

Aside from the Mancunian battle, the weekend also features Chelsea and Liverpool hoping to take advantage of any points dropped by their rivals. The Blues will play host to Burnley on Saturday afternoon, while the Reds will face a tricky trip to West Ham United on Sunday evening, with Hammers boss David Moyes hoping to complete a Merseyside double after recently leading his team to victory over Everton.

Other games to watch out for include a Friday-night round opener between Southampton and Aston Villa, Arsenal hosting Watford, Everton tackling Tottenham Hotspur at Goodison Park, and Leeds United looking to claim the scalp of Leicester City.

SuperSport is also the only place to get English commentary on the legendary La Liga, where the top match for this round is the ‘Derbi Sevillano’ or The Great Derby between Real Betis and Sevilla from Estadio Benito Villamarin.

While Sevilla look like title dark horses this season, Betis have struggled for consistency and will want to get themselves back on the path to a place in European football. Los Nervionenses manager Julen Lopetegui has played down his side’s status as contenders for the championship, insisting that the season is still young and that Sevilla are but one of several teams jostling for position in the upper reaches of the log.

“The feeling is that we’re starting to compete, starting to feel the complexity of the competition,” said Lopetegui. “I think [the race for the top four] is very open. There are teams that have consolidated a very good squad and have improved a lot, as is the case with Villarreal and Real Sociedad. I think Betis has built a very interesting squad, while Valencia have retained their most important players and have shown the ability to be able to compete.”

Another derby on the card sees Real Madrid welcome Rayo Vallecano to Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. Los Vallecanos have enjoyed a fine season thus far and manager Andoni Iraola is hoping his team can continue to punch above their weight.

“I love the attitude of my team,” said Iraola. “We respect all our opponents, but we have no fear for them. We will fight for our own pride and to represent our club and our supporters. This is all we can ask of ourselves.”

La Liga champions Atletico Madrid face a tricky trip to Estadio de Mestalla to take on Valencia, with Los Che hoping to claim a major scalp and rebuild the momentum they enjoyed in the early weeks of the season, while Barcelona will also face a test when they take on Celta Vigo at Abanca Balaidos.

 

Barca will again look to Dutch attacker Memphis Depay for inspiration, with the former Manchester United and Olympique Lyon man insisting that he has no regrets over joining the Catalan giants in their current difficult phase: “How could you ask that? It’s Barcelona. I don’t think you understand how big this club is and what it means for a player if you move to a club like this. I would never regret it,” said Memphis.

Italy’s top clash from Round 12 is the Milan derby, also known as the ‘Derby della Madonnina’, between AC Milan and Internazionale from the San Siro on the evening of Sunday 7 November. The ‘Derby della Madonnina’ name is in honour of one of the main sights in the city of Milan, the statue of the Virgin Mary on the top of the Duomo (Milan Cathedral), which is often referred to as the Madonnina (‘Little Madonna’).

This game will see two of Italy’s great clubs – as well as Scudetto rivals for this very season – battle for three key points as they look to keep pace with Napoli and other heavyweights in the race for the title.

“We have to play to win every single game, we played with quality and energy,” said Milan manager Stefano Pioli. “It means we are growing. Is Tonali talking about the Scudetto? It’s right that the guys ride this dream, at every game we have the chance to show that we can compete.”

 

With one of both of the Milan clubs set to drop points, Napoli will hope to capitalise and claim all three on offer when they host Verona at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona on Sunday evening. One of the driving forces behind the Neapolitans’ rise to become true title contenders has been the form of Cameroonian Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, with manager Luciano Spalletti praising the Cameroon international.

 

“He is a top player, he does everything, but he must improve his finishing and the final pass. You win games when you have the right players and serious professionals, he is the right person for this dressing room,” said Spalletti.

 

Other games to watch out for in Italy this weekend are a Friday-night round-opener between Empoli and Genoa, Juventus tackling Fiorentina in Turin on Saturday, and Roma looking to iron out their inconsistencies on the road when they visit Stadio Pierluigi Penzo to take on hosts Venezia.

 

No rival can compete with SuperSport’s coverage. Our viewers on DStv and GOtv enjoy an unrivalled selection of football from around the world!

Global Citizen Reveals 117 Million Lives Benefited Three Years On From Commitments Announced At The Epic Mandela 100 Festival

Published

on

To mark the third anniversary of the Mandela 100 festival, international advocacy organisation, Global Citizen, has announced that over 12 million lives have been impacted this year across Africa, and the world, adding to the 105 million lives reported last year. Impact from commitments announced at Mandela 100 now totals over 117 million people having benefited from pledges made at the ground-breaking festival in 2018 – which brought together world leaders, philanthropists, and the private sector to make commitments towards achieving the UN’s Global Goals, to end extreme poverty and its systemic causes.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, more than $4.7 billion of the total $7.2 billion in funding announced during the Mandela 100 campaign have been disbursed and allocated to key organisations on the front line of ending extreme poverty, in all its forms, and to communities in need around the world.

Over 70,000 Global Citizens, artists, and global leaders came together at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa, on 2nd December 2018, united behind one mission to honour the life of Nelson Mandela in his centenary year. The event commemorated the legacy of a man whose extraordinary vision for peace and equality still resonates today with the hearts and minds of Global Citizens across the world.

Hosts of the event included Trevor Noah, Sir Bob Geldof, Naomi Campbell, Gayle King, Bonang Matheba, Tyler Perry, and Forest Whitaker, with ground breaking performances by Beyoncé & JAY-Z, Cassper Nyovest, Ed Sheeran, Sho Madjozi, and more.

During the festival Global Citizen and partners announced 60 key pledges across Health, Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH), Food Security, Agriculture, Environment, Education, Education, Finance and Innovation.

By 2020, more than 105 million lives had been impacted by the commitments announced as part of the Mandela 100 campaign in 2018. Now one year on, Global Citizen can announce that a further 12 million liveshave been impacted from delivery of these pledges. Through pledges made at the festival, interventions have been vast, urgent, and critical for communities experiencing the compounded effects of extreme poverty and COVID-19.

Pledges have resulted in accelerated action to end child marriage, and the delivery of antiretroviral therapeutics to more than 5.1 million South Africans; efforts are underway to map the spread of river blindness in Guinea, Nigeria and Senegal, and computers and other educational equipment and facilities that enabled students to continue attending classes online during COVID-19.

Released this week, Global Citizen’s 2021 impact report highlights the latest disbursed commitments including:

  • USD $40 million has been spent by the Motsepe Foundation towards the provision of quality education, an increase of USD $20 million over the last 16 months. USD $50 million had been spent since 2018, contributing to the development and growth of agriculture and farming projects in traditional communities and poor rural and urban communities in KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, North West, Free State and Northern Cape. The funding has been for tractors, farming equipment and implements, irrigation systems, the digging and construction of several hundreds of boreholes, the provision of water tanks and water storage facilities, as well as the provision of fertilisers, seeds and other agricultural and farming inputs.
  • The Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, the Elma Foundation UK, UK Aid, Virgin Unite, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation committed US$105 million to tackle neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) by 2023. Supported by the funding announced at Mandela 100, Sightsavers’ Accelerate programme has addressed neglected tropical diseases such as trachoma in 14 African countries, including Benin, Guinea-Bissau and Ethiopia. The program has delivered 7.4 million treatments for river blindness, lymphatic filariasis, and schistosomiasis and in the first quarter  of 2021, surgery activities were underway in 95 of the programme’s targeted 180 districts for the year, which has allowed for the treatment of 5,100 cases of trachoma.
  • Vodacom pledged ZAR 500 million (US$34.8 million) toward combating gender-based violence, teacher and learner digital literacy, and early childhood centers. In 2021 Vodacom’s Mandela 100 commitment has supported programmes that have had a profound  impact across key areas in gender, education, and literacy.
  • As a result of one of these programmes, more than 1,900 female farmers have been trained in relevant ICT skills to enable them to communicate with other farmers, access relevant products and services online, and ultimately provide them with access to economic opportunities by connecting them to potential buyers.
  • A Gender-Based Violence Command Centre (GBVCC) and website has provided victims of violence in South Africa with a source of support, by providing counselling, service referrals, and immediate response in the event of imminent danger, all free of charge.
  • Germany committed $72.4 million to support the International Fund for Agriculture and Development (IFAD).  Germany’s commitment helped support IFAD overall efforts, ensuring that from 2019 to 2021, 23.4 million people gained access to financial services, such as savings and credits, and almost 1.7 million hectares of land were brought under climate resilient practices. IFAD’s ongoing projects reached over 128 million people, surpassing the year’s goal of 120 million. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, IFAD has repurposed $179 million in the form of 58 projects across 36 countries to help relieve the pandemic’s profound impacts thanks in part to funding announced at Mandela 100, in other partners. Recently in Eritrea, for instance, $1 million has been repurposed through the “Fisheries Resources Management Programme” to provide temporary cold storage to make sure those affected by COVID-19 were able to store their harvests.

Precious Moloi-Motsepe, Co-founder and Chairperson of the Motsepe Foundation said:
“We are pleased with the progress we’ve made relating to our Global Citizen Mandela 100 commitments despite the Covid-19 challenges. We are committed to contributing to improving the living conditions and standards of living of millions of people in South Africa, the rest of the African Continent and the world.”

Chebet Chikumbu, Global Citizen’s Africa Regional Director said:
“Despite the ongoing pandemic, we’ve been working closely with our partners to ensure funds are being dispersed to communities most in need in Africa and across the world. Over the next year, we will continue to deliver on the accountability tied to Mandela 100 campaign pledges made, helping millions of the world’s most vulnerable combat poverty daily, while mitigating the ongoing personal implications and economic impacts of COVID-19.”  ​​

Global Citizen remains committed to bring Nelson Mandela’s dream into reality by ending extreme poverty. In order to achieve the United Nations’ Global Goals, including Global Citizen’s mission to end extreme poverty by 2030, we must end poverty in all its forms.
