This week, international football grabs the headlines. The English Premier Leage, as well as the Serie A and LaLiga, will be keeping supporters on the edge of their seats.
Liverpool travel away to face Chelsea in a Premier League match. Both sides are in good form which makes the encounter more exciting, while in Italy, Juventus will be hoping that their star player, Cristiano Ronaldo will add on to the two goals that he recently scored.
SportPesa ambassador, Doctor Khumalo has picked his winners for the matches below! Do you agree with the Bafana Bafana legend?
Chelsea v Liverpool
This is going to be a very difficult one to call because these are two of the in-form teams in the EPL, however, I’d go for a Liverpool win. They beat Southampton 3-0 last weekend while Chelsea played to a goalless draw away to West Ham. I think Liverpool have a strong team and are enjoying a good run of form. I just hope they don’t pick up any injuries which might affect their momentum. Playing Chelsea is going to be really demanding because that’s not an easy game at all. However, I still believe Liverpool will take this one.
Doc: Liverpool win
Juventus v Napoli
With Cristiano Ronaldo having scored two goals in two games, it is safe to say he’s found his footing in the Serie A. We saw how this Juventus team has been rejuvenated and I’m not too sure whether it has to do with their new acquisitions or what but they look a different team. I give this one to Juventus.

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid
Another interesting and tough match to call but I will go for Real to win it. This is not an easy pick to make because Atletico are no push-overs. After the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, many would have expected Real to struggle but a number of their players have raised their hand. With Luka Modric being one of the best players in the world tells you something about this Real team.

FC Barcelona v Athletic Bilbao
Barca will go into this one as firm favourites and no one can argue with that. I will go for Barca to win it without any problems.
