first_imgHello, dear readers of Gol.bg. We continue to present you the “Top Derbies” section. In it you will have the opportunity to see which are the most important matches on the Old Continent, which will be played during the week. You will also receive information about the date and time of the individual derbies in Europe.The next seven days offer many exciting matches. The week will be extremely difficult for CSKA. On Thursday, the “reds” face BATE Borisov in a clash in the Europa League. The match is extremely unpredictable, and the guests come with the confidence that they have already eliminated two home giants. In 2009, Levski was eliminated on the threshold of the groups of the Champions League after 0: 1 in Sofia and 1: 1 in the return match in Belarus. The following season, Litex also suffered from BATE after a 1-0 victory as a guest and a 0-4 loss in Lovech after extra time. Midfielder Igor Stasevich, who is still among the team’s starters, then took part in the matches. But now the 34-year-old footballer is in question because of a coronavirus. At the end of the week CSKA will try to remove Ludogorets from the top in efbet League. The main contenders for the title face each other at the Bulgarian Army Stadium. Interestingly, the last 5 matches between the two teams ended in a draw – four times 0: 0 and 1: 1 in the last clash in Borisova Garden. In general, the citizens of Razgrad have not won in Sofia in their last 6 away games. The last 5 matches again ended without a winner, and in 2017 CSKA won 2: 1 for the Cup after extra time.But this is not the only interesting match in our country. Levski meets CSKA 1948 in another heated match. From the camp of the debutant they are trying to raise the degree of tension to the extreme with statements that this is the real Eternal derby of Bulgaria. In the last round, Krassimir Balakov’s team achieved its first victory in the elite after 2: 0 over Montana, and at the start of the championship stumbled CSKA after 2: 2. For its part, Levski recorded the first success of “Gerena” in 2020 after a difficult 2: 1 over Etar Veliko Tarnovo and will now seek a new victory. But the defense of the “blues” must stop Martin Kamburov, who is a real nightmare for the 26-time champions.The English Premier League has started and now is the time for the first big derby. In the second round, the renewed Chelsea meets Liverpool. In the last 6 games at Stamford Bridge for the championship, the hosts have only 1 win, 3 losses and 2 draws. But now the stellar selection of Londoners will try to subdue the champion of England. Manchester City and United start the campaign after resting in the first round.The Red Devils host Crystal Palace at Old Trafford. The guests did not lose their last two matches at the legendary stadium – victory 2: 1 and 0: 0, which interrupted their series of 11 consecutive defeats. The “citizens” have a difficult visit to Wolverhampton. Last season, the “wolves” defeated the alumni of Pep Guardiola at home with 3: 2, although they were behind with 0: 2. Before that, they won 2-0 at the Etihad and now City definitely has a reason for revenge.This week, Real Madrid will play its first game of the season in La Liga. The champion of Spain has a difficult visit to Real Sociedad. It is always difficult to play at San Sebastian Stadium, but the Kings have 4 wins and 1 loss in the last 5 matches. Two more big championships are back. In Italy, Andrea Pirlo will make his official debut as coach of Juventus at Sampdoria. The Bianconeri are chasing the 10th consecutive title and in their last 5 home games the Sailors have made no mistake – 5 wins with a goal difference of 16: 2. Milan also started the season with great ambitions, after demonstrating the best form of Botusha after the restart of football. The Rossoneri, led by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, host Bologna. The sleeping giant won its last 4 home games against this opponent, and the last match between them at the San Siro ended 5: 1.In Germany, the hegemon Bayern Munich hosts Schalke 04. The European champion showed a famous form after 25 victories in 26 matches in 2020. Only RB Leipzig did not fall from the Bavarians – 2: 2 as a guest. Schalke lost their last 4 away games at the Allianz Arena with a goal difference of 2:13 and have not been successful for the championship in Munich since 2009.
