Today will truly be a Super Sunday for soccer fans all over the world as some of Europe’s fiercest rivalries take center stage.
Manchester City and Manchester United will battle it out at Ethiad Stadium, the site of last season’s 3-2 road victory for the eventual league champions. New managers David Moyes and Manuel Pellegrini’s starts have been somewhat slow compared to their respective clubs’ high standards, but they both know a big win over the local rival could easily jump-start a push towards the top of the table.
Fans of Serie A will be treated to big rivalries in back-to-back weekends. After last week’s Derby d’Italia between Inter Milan and Juventus, local rivals AS Roma and Lazio square off at their shared home at the Stadio Olimpico. Roma are 3-0-0 to start the season, a streak they would love to keep going with their first win over their hated rivals since 2011.
In France, the massive clash between league-leading AS Monaco and defending champions Paris Saint-Germain will take place at the Parc des Princes. PSG have taken France and the rest of Europe by storm with their high-spending ways over the past few years, but now they have a new big money rival to compete with—Monaco, who have made their triumphant return to Ligue 1 after several blockbuster summer signings.
