It’s match day 3 in the Premier League and we have you covered for over 8-games between today and tomorrow.

The pressure remains on who gets to lose their first game amongst the top-6 that have maximum points from their opening 2-wins.

Leaders, City visit free-push Wolves in the first game on Saturday and should get us into the next match hours with a comfortable 9-point lead.

Second placed Liverpool however, is having a rather tricky fixture at home to Brighton and that will be a clear test to Klopp’s title credentials.

Arsenal could have a better weekend but it will be up to Manchester United to level matters when they face Tottenham on Monday.

In Spain, Real Madrid has a tougher task against Girona but FC Barcelona will have a rather easier feat away at newly promoted Valladolid. The season still has a few lose fixtures and it’s not yet heated up here as it has already started to be even before the first match day ends in Germany.

The Bundesliga returns this weekend and efforts to dethrone 6-time champions in a row, Bayern Munich start with the first game from all the potential contenders.

In Italy Ronaldo continues the search for his first goal when Juventus host Lazio today, but all eyes will be on how Ancelotti takes on his former player when Napoli hosts AC Milan.

In France, PSG continue their title defense with an easy fixture at home to Angers while Lyon and Monaco face tricky ties against Strasbourg and Bordeaux respectively.
