A huge weekend of football sees the two unbeaten sides at the top of the Premier League table face off, the top two in Serie A play each other, the Rome derby and the Madrid derby also take place! We’ll talk about the good, the bad and the ugly news from last week, feature some English phrases used in football, including the cliche ‘no one is biger than the club‘ and try to predict some of the games in the Premier League in our predictions competition.
