The first international break of 2021 is on the horizon, with this weekend’s matches the last before the routine two-week period when there will be no club action.Β 

In England, the attention will shift to the FA Cup action, even though there are a few Premier League matches.Β 

The Serie A, Spanish LaLiga, and the Bundesliga will also continue before players are allowed to join their respective national teams.Β 

So, which matches are we watching this weekend?

Everton vs Man City

Manchester City are in the hunt for a quadruple, with their recent form suggesting they can go all the way. They will take on an Everton side that has had a poor home run in recent months, and will once again be missing the services of James Rodriguez.Β 

Leicester vs Man United

Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes will be hoping to end their poor run against Man United when they host the Reds at the King Power Stadium for an FA Cup quarter-final match.Β 

Both teams will be going into the match on the back of stunning wins, with the hosts having thumped Sheffield United 5-0 last week.Β 

United, on the other hand, recorded a morale-boosting 1-0 over AC Milan on Thursday night to book a place in the last eight of the Europa League, with the return of key players set to spur them even more.Β 

West Ham vs Arsenal

Having stunned north London rivals Tottenham last time out, Arsenal will make another short trip to the London Stadium to take on high-flying West Ham in an English Premier League match.Β 

The Hammers are in a good position to secure European football next season and will fancy their chances against Mikel Arteta’s side.Β 

They have won their last three home games and will look to take advantage of Arsenal’s porous backline, with Jesse Lingard leading the line.Β 

Real Sociedad vs Barcelona

Barcelona are arguably the most in-form team across Europe’s top five leagues and will head to Reale Arena for a Spanish La Liga fixture against Real Sociedad on Sunday in high spirits.Β 

Ronald Koeman’s side are looking to close the gap between them and league leaders Atletico Madrid, who have faltered in recent weeks.Β 

They will however come up against a Sociedad side chasing a European spot and might prove a difficult nut to crack.Β 

Lyon vs PSG

A top-of-the-table clash in Ligue 1 will see third-placed Lyon host second-placed PSG at the Groupama Stadium.

The two sides, both on 60 points, are playing catch up, with Lille leading the standings on 63. Mauricio Pochettino will be out to avenger his side’s loss in the reverse fixture, and with both sides having faltered in recent weeks, it promises to be a cracker of a match.Β 

Roma vs Napoli

The biggest clash of Serie A weekend will see sixth-placed Roma host fifth-placed Napoli, with both tied on 50 points in the table.
