La Liga: Matches to expect this weekend


The 2019/20 La Liga season will have its 12th round this weekend from November 2 to 3, 2019, with viewers on DStv and GOtv set to be treated to some brilliant action from Spain’s top flight.
DStv subscribers from Premium to Family will have font row seats to all La Liga games, while on GOtv, Max is the home of the Spanish league and all the best games will be available on the package, while Plus customers can tune in twice a week for selected matches.
The pick of matches from La Liga this weekend comes from Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Saturday evening when Sevilla host Atletico Madrid.
This is very much a battle of two teams looking to push themselves up toward the top of the table in pursuit of European qualification – and possibly more as the season progresses.
Sevilla have been the more inconsistent of the two sides and will need to raise their game for a clash with Diego Simeon’s combative Rojiblancos, while the Madrid club can also take confidence from putting together a five-game unbeaten run against Los Nervionenses in La Liga.
SuperSport viewers can also look forward to seeing champions Barcelona in an early-evening clash away to Levante at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia.
Barca have had mixed results at the venue in recent years: last season they racked up a 5-0 away win over Levante in La Liga, but their prior visit in May 2018 ended in a stunning 5-4 defeat.
A similarly goal-laden affair could be in store once again.
The weekend La Liga action will also feature Real Madrid, who host Real Betis at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday night.
Betis have claimed away wins in their last two La Liga trips to face Los Blancos and a third in succession would put massive pressure on manager Zinedine Zidane.
Other matches for DStv subscribers to watch out for include Valencia away to Espanyol, Villarreal at home to Athletic Bilbao on Sunday afternoon, and surprise package Granada at home to Real Sociedad to close out the round on Sunday night.
