Serie A gifts us yet another #1 vs. #2 matchup this weekend when Inter Milan visit Juventus. This matchup is known as the “Derby d’Italia” and rarely disappoints. Juventus come in on a 5-game Serie A winning streak, while Inter have done one better at 6 games. An Inter win would close the gap to a single point but Juve will be looking to grab a huge 7-point lead.

A non-Barcelona or Real Madrid game worth checking out seems rare in la Liga these days but that is what we have on Saturday when co-leaders Atletico Madrid visit Valencia. Real and barca are expected to have easy home wins on Saturday but its Atletico who are staying neck-in-neck with Barca at the top of the table. Valencia have struggled in La Liga this season but not at home where they have won 3 of their 4 matches while scoring 10 goals. But the real reason to check out this match may be Atletico’s prolific striker Falcao who is trying to keep pace with perennial scoring leaders Ronaldo and Messi.
