While the Third Round of the FA Cup and the first weekend of the Liga MX Clausura season wrap up Sunday, the headlining match will take place in Italy as Serie A’s top two clubs square off in Turin.
First-place Juventus hold a five-point lead over unbeaten, second-place AS Roma heading into Sunday’s clash at their home stadium, and they will be looking to avenge Roma’s 1-0 victory in their last meeting. Juve, who have won the back-to-back Serie A titles, could give themselves a major boost in their quest for a three-peat by earning their 10th consecutive victory and handing Roma their first of the season.
In England, London clubs Chelsea and West Ham United hit the road in FA Cup action against Championship-level clubs. West Ham look to end their dreadful run of form at Nottingham Forest, and Chelsea will try to keep their winning streak alive against Derby County. The day’s action from England will end at Old Trafford, where Manchester United host Swansea City, who they defeated in the first match of their English Premier League season.
In Mexico, the 2013 Clausura champions Club Leon travel to Atalante in the weekend’s final match. But before the defending champions take the field, Pumas will host Puebla in a Sunday afternoon matchup at Estadio Olimpico Universitario.
