More action tomorrow in La Liga and the English Premier League, with Manchester United meeting Liverpool in a re-scheduled match.
The European Super League idea came and went pretty quickly and one of the casualties was the Old Trafford clash between Manchester United and Liverpool.
That one will be played early Friday morning in the midst of a busy patch for United.
Also re-scheduled is a Week 19 makeup game between Aston Villa and Everton.
Meanwhile the race for the top in La Liga continues as Real Madrid need to equal today’s win by Atletico Madrid if they want to keep pace with the league leaders.
With so much firepower available to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Jürgen Klopp you might expect this one to be a high-scoring affair, but the statistics say otherwise. Manchester United have the fourth most draws in the league and five of their nine against the ‘Big Six’ have ended level at 0-0. Liverpool are in a decent run of form, unbeaten in six league games, but they have the sixth most EPL draws and four of their nine against the ‘Big Six’ were stalemates.
Everton are still in with a top four chance and a win here would put them level on points with 5th place West Ham. The Toffees are better away from home, having picked up more points than anyone but the two Manchester sides. Villa have little to play for other than a spot in the top 10 and although they beat Everton by a 2-1 score 11 days ago, they’ll be without leading scorer Ollie Watkins, who picked up a red card in last week’s win over West Ham.
Table topping Atletico’s win against Real Sociedad has given them a five-point cushion over their Madrid rivals who need a win to stay in touch. The good news is that Real Madrid have won 11 in a row against Granada, including five straight away wins.
