Interesting football matches in Europe on September 11, 2011

It feels strange to write about the upcoming weekend already, considering that it is still just Tuesday, and we have got quite a lot of interesting matches coming up for the national teams all across Europe. I believe the most interesting match might be the one between the Netherlands and Turkey later tonight, as both teams are at the top of their group, and this will be a crucial match for both teams.

The Netherlands has been very impressive, but Turkey can often perform miracles against teams way better than themselves. Will it happen again tonight?

Serie A, La Liga, Premier League

A quiet Friday

We often have quite a lot of interesting matches on Fridays, not only from Ligue 1 in France but also from the German Bundesliga and sometimes also from Premier League. There will be one Ligue 1 match online on Friday, but to be honest, it is quite boring, so it isn’t really worth mentioning.

Saturday party!!

However, when Friday turned into Saturday, things are going to get more interesting, as there will be quite a lot of interesting matches in many of the European top leagues.

Can Arsenal finally win?

I guess it cannot be considered a top match when Arsenal welcomes Norwich to Emirates Stadium in London. But, considering that Arsenal has 0 points after three matches, this is an extremely important match. They will just have to win it, if not, I fear that the life of their coach will start to hang in a very thing thread. The Norwegian star-midfielder Martin Odegaard arrived from Real Madrid just a few weeks ago. Can he help turn the things around in Arsenal?

What about Ronaldo?

In Serie A in Italy, there will also be a top match. Juventus will play against Napoli. What is gonna be extremely interesting about this is to see how Juventus will perform in their post-Ronaldo era. We all know that having a super-star in the team doesn’t always boost the overall performance of a squad, and since Ronaldo has played for Juventus, they haven’t been able to bring home any of the most important trophies at all. Will it bring luck to the team to say goodbye to Ronaldo? And in what way will the arrival of Christiano Ronaldo influence Manchester United who will play against Newcastle United at Old Trafford on Saturday. I guess that is gonna be very interesting to find out, and I really hope I will be able to stream the match between Manchester United and Newcastle United online.

RB Leipzig hasn’t had the best start on the season in the German league, and things will not become easier as Bayern Munchen comes to play against them. But, that will happen this upcoming Saturday, meaning that we have yet another top match to look forward to in the Bundesliga as well on Saturday.

I guess you have your Saturday schedule set up already. It should also be mentioned that Paris St Germaine will play against Clermont on Saturday at 17.00, meaning that you will have trouble watching all your favorite teams at the same time, but that is what I call a luxury problem!

Have a wonderful weekend!

When will Messi play his first match for PSG?

Paris St Germain will play their third match in Ligue 1 this season against Brest tomorrow, on August 20th. Will Messi be on the field? Based on the information I have found, he will not yet be in the squad, and that means that our next chance to see Messi play for PSG will be in their next Ligue 1 match against Reims on August 29th. That is still quite far away, but if you wait for something good and exciting, then it doesn’t hurt to wait a bit more.

It reminds me a bit of the feeling I had waiting for the European Championship in football this summer. It was first extremely far away, but then it just got closer and closer, and it became exactly the highlight of the summer, just like I had hoped for.


Now we are all waiting for Sergio Ramos and Lionel Messi to enter the fields of Parc des Princes, or some other venue in France, and to see how they will affect the team. Will they bring PSG to a new level, or will all the stars just make a mess of it all, just like France did during the European Championship in football earlier this summer?

I sometimes fear that the same might happen to PSG. They have the strongest squad in Europe, but it doesn’t mean that they will win it all. In fact, all it takes is some weak matches during the knockout stage of the Champions League, and that will be the end of the story for Pochetini as PSG manager, considering that everyone expects him to win the Champions League trophy with PSG this year.

PSG has a very light schedule in Ligue 1 this year, meaning that they will not meet any of the “best” competitors before the middle of September. They started with a match against Troyes (that they won 2-1), then they won 4-2 against Strasbourg, and now they will play against Brest, Reims, and then against Clermont. Only after those three matches will they have the pleasure of playing against Lyon at Parc des Princes in Paris.

What will happen to Navas?

Keylor Navas is one of my favorite goalkeepers in Europe. But, what will happen to him after the arrival of Donnarumma? I guess every team in Europe would dream of having two such keepers in their squad, but I don’t believe any keeper like Navas or Donnarumma will be satisfied sitting on the bench while watching the other keeper play. And since PSG just bought Donnarumma, I believe the natural thing would be for Keylor Navas to look for a new home. What do you think?

One final thought!

Yesterday, I did some research on the streaming service of Fanatiz. This is a worldwide streaming service, but what can be streamed on the platform depends on your location. That is why I did some tests, and if you are located in the USA, you can easily stream all Ligue 1 football live. Isn’t that a wonderful possibility if you are eager to watch Messi, Neymar, Ramos, and Wijnaldum play at the same time for PSG?

If you live outside the USA, follow the instructions in this article to get access to Fanatiz all across the world.

Are you happy?
