This week on a massively exciting SquareEyed on Sport, Simon Furnivall and Matt Gault get stuck into a huge weekend of football. Sunday’s don’t come much better than this for football fans as the Merseyside derby between Everton and Liverpool kick things off, before Manchester United’s trip to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal. Simon and Matt preview both games on what is likely to be a day of guaranteed box office Premier League drama.
After that, they turn their attentions to the continent, with a massive La Liga clash on the agenda between Atletico and Real Madrid. Both sides are eager to gain a foothold in the title race this season after Barcelona’s supremacy last season so it’s a must-win. It also marks Rafael Benitez’s first Madrid derby as Real manager. Can he overcome such a major challenge?
But that’s not all! Then we have a discussion of the best the Bundesliga has to offer, with Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich facing off in a battle of the heavyweights at the Allianz Arena.
There is still time to talk about Sky Sports acquiring the rights to exclusively broadcast The Open Championship from next year, one year ahead of the original plan. Simon and Matt chat about how the lack of live golf on the BBC is something to lament.
Finally, Simon runs over all the action from the NFL on a packed weekend, with games live on the BBC and a triple-header on Sky Sports. There’s so much to get through, so get the headphones in and listen away!
