Its always a tough and interesting tie anytime Juventus are facing rivals Lazio and we do not think this game to be any different.

Juventus are in 2nd position while Lazio are currently placed 4th which means both teams have all to fight for it in this game. Considering Head to Head records of both clubs, Juventus stand as favorites to emerge with all three points from this one.

Time: 20:45 CEST

Venue name: Estadio Wanda Metropolitano

Referee: Antonio Mateu from Spain

Will Atletico Madrid put an end to Barcelona's 100% start to the season? or will it be business as usual for Ernesto Valverde's men?

Barcelona enjoy quite an impressive head to head record against Atletico Madrid and that might likely play into their advantage this time. Though the tactical acumen of Diego Simeone is one never to be easily ignored.

5. Watford vs Arsenal:

Ordinarily a game between Watford and Arsenal should not be tagged as a star match with high hopes that Arsenal will be placed as clear favourites.

However, one cannot neglect easily the current form of Watford going into in this game, and we will not be surprised if they manage to share the spoils with the Gunners on this one.
