Your one-stop guide to Arsenal v Spurs, the Madrid derby and Roma v Lazio

| 17.11.2017

The domestic football returns in barnstorming fashion with Saturday, with a superb trio of derbies to get stuck into.

It all gets underway with Arsenal versus Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby at 12.30.

Attention then turns to a potential thriller in Italy at 17:00, as Roma host Lazio in a massive clash in Serie A’s Derby della Capitale.

And then it’s off to Spain where Atletico Madrid welcome local rivals Real to the Metropolitano for the first time.

Here, the Ladbrokes News Team runs you through all the important info for all three…

Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur – 12:30

Odds: Arsenal 11/8, Draw 5/2, Tottenham 7/4

Form: Arsenal – WLWWL / Tottenham – WWWLW

Arsenal sit four points below Tottenham ahead of their first meeting of the season.

Both sides should be able to boast a full-strength squad, with Harry Kane and Dele Alli withdrawing from international duty in order to be fully fit for this.

Tottenham have only managed one win at the Emirates, while Arsenal have won their last 10 league games on home soil.

Expect Kane to make an impact, the England ace has netted in his last five appearances versus the Red half of North London.

Roma v Lazio – 17:00

Odds: Roma 5/4, Draw 13/5, Lazio 19/10

Form: Roma – LWWWW / Lazio – WWWWW

This could be an almighty scrap in the Italian capital.

Both Roma and Lazio harbour title ambitions this term, and both sides are firmly in the hunt at the sharp end of the table.

Eusebio di Francesco’s Roma are favourites, but it’s Lazio who won the most recent meeting back in April.

Simone Inzaghi’s I Biancocelesti boast the in-form Ciro Immobile, while Roma have Edin Dzeko and Stephen El Shaarawy.

Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid – 19:45

Odds: Atletico 2/1, Draw 23/10, Real 13/10

Form: Atletico – DDWDW / Real – WWWLW

The first Madrid derby of the season will be the first ever at Atletico’s new Metropolitano stadium.

Unfortunately it already looks like there is little riding on this other than local pride.

The two sides are eight points behind Barcelona in the table, and Zinedine Zidane is coming under fire at Real.

But this could be the game to spark Antoine Griezmann and Cristiano Ronaldo into life.

The former has netted just two league goals this season, while Real’s number seven has only a solitary strike so far.

But Ronaldo has previous here. The Portugal international has a stunning 21 goals in 29 games versus Atleti.
