Premier League, La Liga and Serie A preview 3-6 July 2020

This round of action in the Premier League  is headlined by the meeting of Tottenham Hotspur and Everton in London on the evening of Monday 6 July, with both teams continuing their push to move up the table and end the season on a high.

Tottenham still have an outside chance of reaching the top four – and guaranteed entry into the UEFA Champions League with it – and midfielder Erik Lamela insists that this remains their ambition despite looking sluggish since the restart. “No we have to aim for the top four, try to win every game. There are plenty of opportunities ahead. We have to take it game by game but that is our plan,” said the Argentine.

Everton are set to finish in mid-table, neither qualifying for Europe nor bothered by the threat of relegation, but they should be motivated to end a long winless run against Spurs: the teams’ 1-1 draw at Goodison Park back in November 2019 extended Tottenham’s unbeaten run against the Toffees to 14 Premier League matches. The Merseyside team’s last victory in the rivalry came way back in December 2012, and they have not beaten Spurs in London since November 2008.

Sunday’s meeting of Liverpool and Aston Villa at Anfield is set to have an Egyptian taste to it, with the Reds boasting Mohamed Salah and the Lions able to field his compatriots Ahmed Elmohamady and Mahmoud ‘Trezeguet’ Hassan. It’s desperate times for Villa as they look to claw their way up the log and avoid relegation, but Jurgen Klopp’s side are unlikely to be in a generous mood.

This weekend of La Liga action is headlined by Real Madrid’s trip to Estadio San Mames to face Athletic Bilbao. Los Blancos are in the midst of a tough title tussle with arch rivals Barcelona, but Zinedine Zidane’s side are showing signs of being able to withstand the pressure and possibly win a first title since 2016-17.

“We have done well since the restart,” said ‘Zizou’. “But there is still hard work ahead of us. We must keep working hard and expect resistance from our opponents, who also have their own ambitions. We will not think of the title until the trophy is in our hands.”

Bilbao were able to hold Real 0-0 when the teams met at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu back in December last year, but going a step further and defeating the capital giants has proven diffiuclt for the Basque club in recent years: their last win in the rivalry was back in March 2015 and that was one of just two victories over Real in the decade spanning 2010 to the end of 2019.

Another key clash sees Barcelona head to Estadio De La Ceramica to take on Villarreal, with the Yellow Submarine invigorated since the restart and chasing a place in next season’s UEFA Europa League. Much of this new ‘oomph’ has come from the feet of Nigerian winger Samuel Chukwueze, whose skill and pace have been one of the highlights in La Liga since the resumption in June.

The pick of weekend Serie A matches is definitely the Turin derby between Juventus and Torino at the Allianz Stadium on Saturday 4 July. The ‘Derby della Mole’ (named after the Mole Antonelliana, a major landmark in the city and the architectural symbol of the Piedmontese capital) will see Juve continue their push to retain the Serie A crown, though the loss of the Coppa Italia final to Napoli in June was a major blow to their morale.

Torino, meanwhile, are working hard to ensure they remain in the top flight for next season and African football fans will be keen to see the likes of Nicolas N’Koulou, Koffi Djidji and Ola Aina in action for ‘Il Toro’. N’Koulou made headlines when he netted against Parma in June and took a knee in honour of the Black Lives Matter movement: “When I scored I immediately thought of my brother [George] Floyd who is important to me,” said the Cameroon international.

Juventus’ title rivals Lazio and Internazionale face home matches of their own, with their former taking on Milan later on Saturday and the latter hosting Bologna in Sunday’s late afternoon kick-off. Le Aquile and the Nerazzurri will both be hoping for a slip-up from the Bianconeri in their derby clash, as the race for the Scudetto continues to enthrall SuperSport viewers.
