INTERESTING SATURDAY´GAMES (This article is available in English and Español)

After the Uefa and Champions League´s games during the week, the national leagues come back with various interesting game both Saturday and Sunday, although in this article we will focus on the Saturday´s games, leaving the Sunday´s game for another article.
On the one hand, on Saturday at 12.45 G.M.T all eyes will focus on the Emirates Stadium in London, because it will be one of the most important games of the Premier League, Arsenal FC (ranked 4th) against Manchester United (ranked 3rd). Obviously we hope a spectacular match between two offensive teams-there are, alongside Chelsea FC, the top scorer teams in the Premiership- and if we must opt for a favourite for this game, we think that the Manchester United is the team with more number to win the games, because the Sir Alex Ferguson´s team arrives to this Saturday´match in an excellent result´s level-the last United´s defeat was on September,13 at Anfield Road in the game against Liverpool FC- and besides it has all the stars-Paul Scholes will be the only absence- playing very well and especially Cristiano Ronaldo (6 goals in 7 Premier´s games). In contrast, Arsenal is not living its best moment, since it did not win the last 3 matches-1 defeat against Stoke City and 2 draws against Tottenham Hotspur (4-4!) and against Fenerbahçe (0-0, it is difficult to see a game where the Luis Aragones´s team does not receive a goal) – and it also has many problems in the squad, since many players are injured: Tomas Rosicky, Eduardo, Emmanuel Eboue, Emmanuel Adebayor with an ankle injury and Theo Walcott, whose presence is doubtful because he has an injury in his shoulder; besides Robin Van Persie is sanctioned and he will not play. So we think that United will not be in many troubles during this game, since it has a solid defensive line-the limited Arsenal´attack for this game will have many troubles- and it is sure that it will score some goal, so we bet that the "Red Devil" will win this game.
Moreover, this Saturday we will see the debut as a new coach of a classic of the European football, Siniša Mihajlović, who has arrived this week to the bench of Bologna FC 1909, with an initial mission, to improve the defensive level of the team-Bologna FC is the team with more goals received of the Italian Scudetto- and later with the mission to keep the team in the Italian Seria A, which will be difficult, because the squad is not very good, although there are experienced players like: the central midfielder Gaby Mudingayi, Sergio Volpi, Marco Di Vaio, Adailton, Salvatore Lanna or Francesco Antonioli. This Saturday at 20:30 c.e.t Mihajlović will have a difficult debut against a reborn AS Roma, which arrives to this game with a very good mentality after the vital victory in the Champions League´s game against Chelsea FC- the only absence in the Spalleti´s team is Alberto Aquilani, so Luciano, no excuses if there is a defeat-. Finally, this Saturday, we will also pay attention to the game between AS Monaco and Olympique Lyon-obviously this year is not a game as attractive as it was other seasons, because Monaco with the ultra-defensive coach Ricardo Gomes is not at its best moment, although of course it has good players (Jerko Leko, Dario Simic, Lucas Bernardi, Leandro Cufré, Camel Meriem or the young Nimani Frédéric) and they can complicate the game to the leader of the French league (the game will be on Saturday at 19.00 c.e.t- and the development of the 2 big teams of the Spanish league after their poor Champions League´s matches. Real Madrid will play at 20.00 cet againt Malaga CF at the Bernabeu and it will play without the Dutchman Arjen Robben-besides Pepe, De la Red and Ruud Van Nistlerooy are injured- and so we can have another "show" of this "phenomenon" called Royston Drenthe. FC Barcelona will play at 22.00 cet at the Camp Nou, with the absences of Eidur Gudjohnsen and Andres Iniesta -both injured-, against an uncomfortable rival, Real Valladolid, although we must say that this team plays better at home, since for example this season Real Valladolid has lost all the games played away its Stadium and therefore FC Barcelona should not have too much problems to win the game.
Enjoy!
Cheers,
J&F

I'm not surprise with the result between Arsenal and Man Utd because currently Man Utd's defends are not consistent.. see how they conceded 3 goal by Hull City.. especially from dead ball.. demmm
