This weekend in the Italian Serie A, Inter Milan will be taking on Roma as the home side will be fighting for the second spot on the log standings as Juventus are 17 points ahead at the summit.
While, in England, Leceister City travel away to face West Ham United. City are looking to bounce back to winning ways, however the home side will be aware that a loss could see them slipping further down on the log table as they currently sit in 11th position.
This week, former Banyana Banyana star, Khabo Zith gets in on the matches that will be taking place and gives her predictions. Do you agree with her choices?
West Ham v Leicester City (English Premier League)
Match 3 Soccer 6 Pool 20 April S6 V2 P2
League Rankings: West Ham 11th & Leicester City 7th
Useful facts: Leicester City seek to bounce back from their 1-0 loss to Newcastle last weekend, where they ended up having nothing to show for all their dominance. Prior to that, they had been on a four-game winning streak and they will be out to get back to winning ways as they aim to finish in a decent position on the league table. Meanwhile, a determined West Ham side will feel they gave the game away cheaply against Manchester United last Saturday, where they conceded two goals via the penalty spot-kicks, to eventually lose 2-1. This weekend’s game, then, will be about righting the wrongs of that game, as failure to get a positive result could see them dropping down the table. When the two teams last met, in October 2018, 1-1 was the result.

Rayo Vallecano v Huesca (LaLiga)
Match 4 Soccer 6 Pool 20 April S6 V2 P2
League Rankings: Rayo Vallecano 19th & Huesca 20th
Useful facts: How low can you go? The two teams are staring relegation in the eye, with six games remaining before the curtain comes down on the campaign. Only two points separate them, so it’s safe to say a real battle is on the cards. To their credit, Huesca held giants Barcelona to a goalless draw last Saturday. It is that kind of display, albeit with goals, they will need to take to their crucial weekend game if they are to walk away with maximum points. Meanwhile, Rayo Vallecano are still smarting from a 3-2 defeat to Athletico Bilbao and will certainly come out guns blazing, although a win will still not be enough to move them from their current log position.
Khabo Zitha: Draw
Inter Milan v Roma (Serie A)
Match 6 Soccer 6 Pool 20 April S6 V2 P2
League Rankings: Inter Milan 3rd & Roma 5th
Useful facts: With Juventus running away with the league title, Inter Milan are playing for the second spot, with six games remaining until the end of the season, and a win against Roma will aid their cause a great deal. With the third-best scoring record so far this campaign, they will fancy their chances of scoring a goal or two, and should also be spurred on by their home fans. Roma, however, will want to continue from where they left off in their last game last Saturday, where they beat Udinese 1-0, as they also chase a position among the top teams on the log standings. The visitors will also take heart from the fact that the last time they faced Inter, which was in December last year, they overcame them with a 2-0 score line.
