Euro Watch: The three games you need to see this weekend

| 15.01.2017

While the Premier League plays host to a number of potentially enthralling fixtures this weekend, there is plenty over on the continent to get excited about too.

A number of leagues are coming back off their winter breaks, so there’s every chance we could see a few surprising results in the coming weeks.

So as the Premier League gears up for Manchester United versus Liverpool, at Ladbrokes News we’ve picked out three European ties which look set to be equally entertaining.

They all take place on Sunday night, but this is 2017 and we all know we can watch more than one game at a time these days.

First up is a trip to Florence…

Fiorentina v Juventus – Sun 19:45 – Live streaming on Ladbrokes.com

If anyone is going to stop Juventus winning another Scudetto, then they really need Fiorentina to do a job on the Old Lady this weekend.

Juve sit four points clear of Roma with a game in hand, but haven’t been fantastic on their travels.

Genoa and both Milan clubs have managed to win at home to the Turin giants this season, and La Viola are unbeaten at Stadio Artemio Franchi.

Having won just one of their last four league visits to Florence, this isn’t a trip Juve will be taking lightly.  Even a draw would offer hope to the chasing pack.

Sevilla v Real Madrid – Sun 19:45

With most people focusing on the EFL Cup semi-finals this week, they will have missed a sensational Copa del Rey clash between these two.

Real led 3-0 from the first-leg, but Sevilla were on the cusp of ending Los Blancos’ 39-game unbeaten run.

That was until Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema stepped up to net in the final seven minutes to force a 3-3 draw, extending their own run while also breaking Barcelona’s previous record.

But Jorge Sampaoli has Sevilla enjoying their strongest La Liga tilt in years, and they head into this clash in second place, a point ahead of Barcelona.

A win here would smash Real’s run to pieces and blow the title race wide open.

Marseille v Monaco – Sun 20:00

Monaco have a very real chance of winning a first Ligue 1 title in 17 years, while Marseille’s new American owners are desperate to get the club back in the thick of the action.

This should be a thrilling affair at the Stade Velodrome. Monaco have netted a stunning 56 times in just 19 league games, but Marseille remain undefeated at home.

Can Rudi Garcia’s hosts hold out against Leonardo Jardim’s free-scoring Monaco?

With Nice two points ahead and PSG just three points behind, Monaco can ill-afford to drop points if they want to end their title wait.
