More international football coverage via The Associated PressA look at what’s happening around European football on Wednesday:
Manchester’s rivals United and City compete for the top spot in the Premier League when they play back-to-back matches. City can overtake Leicester and United to take top spot for the first time this season by winning at home to Aston Villa, whose senior players are playing their first game since January 1 – after which there was an outbreak of coronavirus in the club. team that led to the training ground being closed. City are the in-form team in the league, having won their last five games. United later play second-to-last Fulham, but have been proving tough to beat in recent weeks. Just like United, who have not lost in the league since November 1 and can take a two-point lead at the top with a win.
Real Madrid play in the Copa del Rey Round of 16 against third-division club Alcoyano, who knocked out first-division Huesca in the previous round. Madrid are winless in their last two matches in all competitions. In another round of 16 game, Real Sociedad visit third division club Córdoba. In the Spanish league, Villarreal host Granada, Celta Vigo visit Real Betis and last-placed Huesca play Getafe.
Bayern Munich were able to retain and even extend their lead after mixed recent form when other title contenders also slipped. A visit to Augsburg should be a direct chance to secure another win after Sunday’s shaky 2-1 victory over Freiburg. After two games without a win, Leipzig’s title challenge has been shaken up, making a victory over Union Berlin all the more important. Luka Jovic scored twice on his return to the Bundesliga with Eintracht Frankfurt on loan from Real Madrid and now faces Freiburg away. Schalke host Cologne and Stuttgart visit Arminia Bielefeld.
Anything but a convincing victory for Juventus over Napoli in the Italian Super Cup could mark the beginning of the end of Andrea Pirlo’s brief tenure. Pirlo is under pressure just months into his first senior coaching job with Juventus faltering in the league. The nine-time defending champion lost 2-0 to title rivals Inter Milan to leave them fifth in Serie A, 10 points behind league leaders AC Milan. Napoli beat Fiorentina 6-0 to move up to third. Atalanta can move into third place if they win against relegation-threatened Udinese earlier in their rearranged league game. The match was originally scheduled to take place on December 6 but was postponed due to a flooded pitch. Udinese are just three points above the relegation zone.
After an abject performance last weekend, Marseille need to bounce back with a home win against Lens as they play one of their two games less. The 2-1 loss at home to a struggling Nimes side was arguably Marseille’s worst performance of the season. This led to scathing post-match comments from Marseille centre-back Alvaro Gonzalez about not fighting hard enough for the shirt, and his manager Andre Villas-Boas. A well-deserved victory at the Stade Vélodrome would put Marseille one point behind fourth-placed Monaco and restore some pride.
