On Saturday, May 5, Mamelodi Sundowns will host Wydad Casablanca in their first Group Stage match of the CAF Champions League. Masandawana will want to take full advantage of playing at home, and also with the team’s spirit on an ultimate high, they will be gunning for glory. However, Casablanca are no walkovers.

The El Clasico will take centre stage as Barcelona take on Real Madrid on Sunday, May 6. The Catalans have been crowned the champions of LaLiga, while their opponents are sitting pretty as they are in the final of the UEFA Champions League. As always, this promises to be an exciting game of football as both sides are in good form.

Useful facts: Jubilant Sundowns are fresh from an Absa Premiership title-winning match, clinching the league for the eighth time. However, Pitso Mosimane and his charges will put their celebrations on ice as the attention now turns to the CAF Champions League. Ka Bo Yellow host the very same team that denied them the opportunity of defending the trophy last year. Masandawana won the first leg when they hosted the visitors last year and will hope for a repeat of that match, where they won 1-0, and this time around, even a better goal advantage. The Moroccans knocked Downs out of the competition with an aggregate scoreline of 1-1 (3-1 on penalties).

Barcelona v Real Madrid (La Liga)

Match 6 Soccer 6 Pool 6 April S6 V2 P2

League Rankings: Barcelona 1st & Madrid 3rd

Useful facts: Barca wrapped up the league over the weekend when their 4-2 victory against Deportivo confirmed the Catalan giants as the new champions, winning it for the 25th time and claiming it back from rivals Los Blancos. Be that as it may, when the biggest foes in football clash, it always remain a must-watch encounter. The Spanish giants collide for the 176th time in the league and with the title already claimed by Ernesto Valverde’s side, bragging rights and points are all there is to play for. A scoreline of 3-0 in the previous El Clasico favoured the champions, Barca.
