Premier League, La Liga and Serie A preview, 23 May 2021 

SuperSport viewers on DStv and GOtv can look forward to action from the 2020-21 Premier League, La Liga and Serie A seasons, with matches scheduled for 23 May 2021.

SuperSport is your #HomeOfFootball and the ultimate destination for lovers of ‘The Beautiful Game’.

This weekend sees the Premier League wrap up for this season, with Manchester City celebrating their title triumph with a clash at home to Everton at the Etihad Stadium – though they will surely have one eye on their UEFA Champions League final against Chelsea (who are away to Aston Villa) next weekend in Istanbul.

“People believe it’s easy to arrive in the final of the Champions League. Getting to the final now makes sense of what we have done in the past four or five years,” said City boss Pep Guardiola. “I want to thank the owner, the chairman and the staff at the club. This club is about all the people that work behind the scenes, it’s not just about money. If you want to think that then you are wrong.”

With the top of the table decided and the three relegation spots also confirmed – with Sheffield United, West Bromwich Albion and Fulham descending to the EFL Championship – attention will be focused on the fight for European places, with the key clashes including Leicester City at home to Tottenham Hotspur.

“We have already beaten our [points] total from last season. We have to embrace the challenge,” said Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers as they look to seal a place in next season’s UEFA Champions League.

Other key matches in this regard see Liverpool at home to Crystal Palace, Chelsea’s aforementioned visit to Birmingham to face Villa, and West Ham United hosting Southampton.

“I said it a couple of times, we are not in dreamland and say everything has to click again,” said Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp. “It’s nothing to do with confidence or whatever. Our situation changed slightly but only for us, for the other teams not too much because they are still in a better position and we know that. The only thing we can do is [keep] winning our games.”

SuperSport is the only place to get English commentary from the legendary La Liga, where the title race has gone down to the wire and will be settled on this final day of the 2020-21 season. Defending champions Real Madrid are at home to Villarreal in one of the key matches, as they look to overcome the ‘Yellow Submarine’ in the Spanish capital.

“The players just want to win and that’s the same in every game, even if sometimes it’s not possible. The key thing is to give it our all, 100 percent. That often reaps its rewards and if it doesn’t you have to be patient,” said Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane. “All I can promise you is that we’re going to compete, from minute one to minute 90. Our focus is on this game and finishing the season strongly.”

The second key game in the title race sees Atletico Madrid (who are leading the log and will seal the title with a win) head to Estadio Municipal Jose Zorilla to take on a Real Valladolid side fighting for their lives in the relegation zone. “We will keep working and believing right to the final minute of the final game of the season,” said Rojiblancos boss Diego Simeone. “All we can do is control our own results and be sure that we end the season with pride in ourselves and our efforts.”

Barcelona would have been hoping to be in the title frame, but a recent dip in form means they are now hoping to merely defend third place from Sevilla. The Blaugrana end the season away to already-relegated Eibar, while Los Nervionenses are at home to Deportivo Alaves (who have only just secured survival).

The final two relegation spots – to decide who joins Eibar in dropping to the second tier for next season – will be the key focus for Real Valladolid (in their match against Atletico), Elche in hosting Athletic Bilbao and Huesca, who are just above the red zone, for a home game with Valencia.

This weekend sees the 2020-21 Serie A season come to a close, with new champions Internazionale looking to end their campaign in style with a win at home to Udinese. “I think the work we’ve done over two years has made a big difference, as the squad improved not only on the pitch, but also in terms of transfer value. The team is now considerably more valuable than it was when I took over, and so I think investing in my experience has paid off,” said manager Antonio Conte.

“I always knew my arrival would bring certain expectations. I feel those expectations have now been met. These lads can still grow further, they can improve in terms of mentality especially, but they are winners and they know what it is they have to do. I always said victory has to become an obsession for a winner, like a drug that they need.”

The race for the final three places in next season’s UEFA Champions League is the main focus for this final round of games, with Napoli, Atalanta, Juventus and Milan fighting for a place at the top European table in 2021-22.

The key game sees Atalanta host Milan at the Gewiss Stadium in Bergamo, with La Dea looking to continue their recent dominance over the Rossoneri, which includes a 3-0 away win – with goals from Cristian Romero, Josip Ilicic and Duvan Zapata – when the teams met earlier this season.

“Our fate is in our hands and the best way to avoid looking over our shoulders is to keep pushing forward. It’s time to play and give our absolute best,” said Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini.

Elsewhere, Napoli will be at home to Hellas Verona, while Juventus face a trip to Stadio Renato Dall’Ara to face Bologna – neither Verona nor Bologna have anything but pride to play for, so the two heavyweights will feel confident of claiming all three points.

There will also be major interest in the relegation battle: Crotone and Parma will be descending to Serie B, but which team will join them? The crunch game sees Torino host Benevento at Turin’s Stadio Olimpico. Il Toro may be safe and clear if they can avoid a defeat against Lazio in a midweek catch-up game, but otherwise they will be scrapping for their lives come Sunday.

No rival can compete with SuperSport’s coverage. Our viewers on DStv and GOtv can see all their favourite stars from the African continent dominating in leagues across Europe.

We all can’t wait for the fans to see what we’ve cooked up.”

It’s ‘El Clasico’ time again; Barcelona v Real Madrid This Sunday

Published

on

Its El Clasico time again and SuperSport viewers can look forward to a classic La Liga rivalry, as Barcelona  host Real Madrid at Camp Nou on the afternoon of Sunday 24 October 2021. SuperSportis also the only place to get English commentary on the legendary La Liga, where ‘El Clasico’, the most famous rivalry in all of club football, takes centre stage as Barcelona take on hated rivals Real Madrid.

 

While the Blaugrana have endured a difficult start to the season both domestically and in Europe, Los Blancos have also flattered to deceive at times, though they have shown some encouraging signs of promise under Carlo Ancelotti.

 

However, the Italian is wary of his team’s “wrong attitude”, which sprung up in defeats to Sherriff and Espanyol just prior to the international break, and he will be determined to ensure that no such shortcomings are on show for the Clasico.

 

Barca, meanwhile, desperately need a big victory to boost morale and belief, with the Blaugrana already looking in danger of becoming an ‘also ran’ in La Liga this season. “It is a complicated situation. We’re suffering, I have to be honest about that,” said veteran defender Gerard Pique. “These are difficult times; we have not experienced them before. The atmosphere in the dressing room is very good and we want to turn it around.”

 

Barcelona look like they will have to make do without Pedri, Ronald Araujo, and Ousmane Dembele for Sunday’s Clasico against Real Madrid at the Camp Nou.

The trio will also sit out Wednesday’s Champions League clash against Dynamo Kiev and will not be rushed back for the visit of Los Blancos, according to multiple reports from Spain.

 

 

Key players

 

Memphis Depay – The Dutch attacker has looked at home in a Barcelona shirt and has taken on the mantle of being a talisman in attack. Depay’s movement, touch and intelligence will be crucial if the Blaugrana are to claim a win over Los Blancos.

 

Luka Modric – The veteran Croatian midfielder continues to be the heartbeat of Real Madrid, with his ability to orchestrate play from anywhere on the field virtually unmatched. Modric will look to pull the strings for another Real Madrid triumph in the Clasico.

 

Head-to-head stats

 

In head-to-head stats, Barcelona and Real Madrid have met in 246 competitive matches, dating back to 1902. Los Blancos have 98 wins compared to 96 for the Blaugrana, while 52 games have been drawn.

 

Real completed a league ‘double’ over Barca last season, winning 3-1 at the Camp Nou in October 2020 and 2-1 in Madrid in April 2021. Los Blancos have put together a four-match unbeaten streak against their arch-rivals.

 

Battles to watch

 

Gerard Pique v Karim Benzema – A classic battle of two veterans who are masters of their craft and represent the ‘old school’ at their current clubs. Pique and Benzema’s clash could well decide which team comes out on top on Sunday afternoon.

 

Frenkie de Jong v Eduardo Camavinga – De Jong has taken on greater responsibility for Barcelona and looks to be maturing nicely, but he’ll have a tough test against the all-action Camavinga, whose energy, passing and tackling have helped Real dominate the ‘engine room’ in recent matches.

 

Ansu Fati v Eder Militao – Barca’s African-born forward may not start the match, but he’s sure to appear at some point in their attack, which will be a ‘red alert’ moment for centre-back Eder Militao as he aims to quell Fati’s potent threat.

 

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

WWE Crown Jewel: Will ‘The Beast’ finally dethrone Roman Reigns?

Published

on

Fans of the WWE can gear up for another thrilling Pay-Per-View event, Crown Jewel, which will be held on the evening of Thursday 21 October 2021 at the Mohammed Abdu Arena on the Boulevard in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia live and exclusive to SuperSport on DStv the #HomeOfSport.

 

This will be the third edition of Crown Jewel, which was first held in 2018. The card of matches includes a thrilling Triple Threat match between Becky Lynch, Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks for the SmackDown Women’s Championship.

 

“I don’t care that I don’t have a champion’s advantage for this match,” said Lynch. “I don’t care that Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks are convinced they’re gonna be walking away with this title. There is no world in which I lose and those two b****es better get ready, because ‘The Man’ is coming their way!”

 

Other clashes to look forward to include a No Holds Barred match between Bobby Lashley and Goldberg, with the latter looking to avenge his defeat at SummerSlam; the team of Riddle and Randy Orton (RK-Bro) defending their Raw Tag Team titles against ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles and the giant Omos; and Drew McIntyre will look to become a three-time WWE Champion when he battles Big E.

 

But the main event everyone is talking about is a match for the Universal Championship between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar. Reigns with help from council Paul Heyman and his cousins, The Usos’, which together form ‘The Bloodline’ has dominated WWE for well over a year now.

 

However, a potent threat emerged at the SummerSlam event when Brock Lesnar returned to WWE in shocking style. ‘The Beast’ is one of the all-time greats and certainly has the power and skill to take down Reigns, while his past relationship with Heyman who served Lesnar in a similar role to his position in ‘The Bloodline’ now adds a layer of complexity to this showdown.

 

“Roman Reigns… You call yourself the ‘Head of the Table’. You want to be acknowledged,” said Lesnar. “Well, at Crown Jewel, your time as WWE’s ‘Big Dog’ comes to an end. Brock Lesnar is back, and that’s bad, bad news for you.”

 

Crown Jewel will also feature a Hell in a Cell match between hated rivals Edge and Seth Rollins, as well as the finals for the King of the Ring and Queen’s Crown tournaments.

 

Now GOtv viewers can also enjoy some world-class WWE action every Wednesday evening on SuperSport GOtv Select3, with a past Pay-Per-View (3:00pm), WWE 205 (7:00pm) and a documentary (7:30pm).

Formula 1: Austin duel awaits rivals Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton

Published

on

The 17th round of the 2021 Formula 1 World Championship, the United States Grand Prix, live from the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas on the evening of Sunday 24 October 2021 live and exclusive to SuperSport on DStv the ultimate destination for motorsport fans.

 

The previous round in Turkey saw Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas claim a comfortable victory in damp conditions to solidify his hold on third place in the Drivers’ Championship.

 

“It’s been a while, it feels good,” said Bottas of his first victory of the 2021 season. “To some people, it could have looked easy, but it’s far from that in these conditions. Everything went smoothly, I’m very glad, and the car really has been good in any condition. I had probably the worst race of my career last year and now one of the best.”

 

Yet the key results in the Drivers’ Championship were behind the Finnish winner, with Red Bull Racing-Honda’s Max Verstappen coming home in second place and rival Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes only recovering to fifth after being hit with a 10-place grid penalty for using a new engine.

 

This combination means Verstappen now holds a six-point lead over Hamilton at the top of the table, with six rounds of the season remaining (including this American GP). However, Red Bull boss Christian Horner is worried that the ‘Silver Arrows’ have developed their car to a point where they again hold a major advantage.

 

They [Mercedes] have recently made a significant step forward with the top speed,” Horner explained. “Before, we could still keep up with them by driving with a little less wing, but now we don’t even come close.”

 

Hamilton, meanwhile, was left frustrated by a late pit call in the Turkish GP which cost him a couple of places. The seven-time World Champion felt he should have stayed out on the worn intermediate tyres to the end of the race.

 

“I feel like I should have stayed out,” Hamilton explained. “My gut feeling was to stay out, and I feel like that’s what I should have done. So I’m frustrated in myself for not following my gut.”

 

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff, however, backed his team’s strategy – insisting that while Hamilton had a comfortable buffer to Charles Leclerc and Sergio Perez before his stop, he would have lost the positions if he had stayed out on track and maybe not even finished the race.

 

“We thought that we could maybe hang out there and finish third without stopping or, if a dry line appeared, maybe going to a soft tyre until the end,” Wolff said. “So we balanced between pitting, taking it very conservative fighting against Leclerc and Perez on the track for P3, or taking a little bit of a gamble and either winning or finishing third. Then we saw Leclerc dropping off and Lewis was dropping off and it was clear we wouldn’t make it to the end.”

 

The United States GP has been dominated by Mercedes in the hybrid era (2014 onwards), with the ‘Silver Arrows’ claiming five wins from a possible six. Bottas was the winner in 2019, which was the last time the race was held, coming home ahead of Hamilton and Verstappen.
