‘Languagecaster Predictions – No love lost in the North London Derby’
On this week’s Languagecaster Predictions we focus on Europe. We also take a first look at the Argentinian top division, the Primera Division. In the Torneo Inicial, it’s the fifth round of games. Table toppers Newell’s Old Boys take on Estudiantes, who are currently lying fifth. There are two huge derbies from England. The first is a regional derby between Liverpool and Manchester United, the two most successful sides in England. The second is a city derby between Arsenal and Tottenham. We also have a game from Germany. Schalke 04 are looking for their first win and host Bayer Leverkusen. And in Italy, Juventus and Napoli both have tricky games, the former against Lazio and the latter against Chievo. Remember it’s three points for a correct score and one for the right result. If you want to try your luck against Damon and Damian just leave us a comment below. Our guest predictor this week is Phoebe, a Chelsea fan.
Last week, Damian picked up seven points, Damon six and our guest, Tracey, only one!
