The day of Thursday, September 23, is loaded with several interesting matches in LaLiga and Serie A. The most prominent is, without a doubt, Cádiz-Barcelona, where the Barça coach, Ronald Koeman, plays his position and his future at the club: the bad feelings of the team and the poor results have activated all the alarms within the sports management.
While the Dutchman gambles his continuity, Serie A hosts the meetings of two of the revelation teams at this start of the season: José Mourinho’s AS Roma meets Udinese at home and Luciano Spalletti’s Napoli visit Sampdoria with the intention of staying at the top of the table. The most prominent matches are:
Sampdoria – Naples | Serie A | Movistar Champions League
Luciano Spalletti’s men visit Sampdoria on the fifth day of Serie A, a team that has only added one victory and has won in their last five games. After missing the ticket to the Champions League on the last day of last season, the sports management dispensed with Gattuso and has opted for the Italian coach, who It is the third that has directed more games in Serie A in this 21st century with a total of 415. He only has Walter Mazzarri (465) and Gian Piero Gasperini (452) ahead. The match will be played at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris starting at 6:30 p.m. and can be seen live through Movistar Champions League.
Granada – Real Sociedad | LaLiga | Movistar LaLiga
Those of Robert Moreno receive a Real Sociedad settled in the upper area of the table despite drawing with Sevilla on the last day. The Nasrid, who face their first season without Diego Martínez, rescued a point in their visit to Camp Nou and are looking for the first victory of the season: they have three draws and two losses in their first five games. The txuri-urdin, for their part, made their debut by falling into the Barça fiefdom, but they add five consecutive games without losing with three wins and two draws. The match will be played at the Los Cármenes stadium from 7:30 p.m. and can be followed in Movistar LaLiga.
Rome – Udinese | Serie A | Movistar Champions League
Those of José Mourinho want to forget as soon as possible the setback against Hellas Verona and return to the path of victory: those from the Italian capital have six victories in their first seven official matches and are one of the most fit teams in European football. Faced with Udinese that has been hurt after conceding a win at home against Naples, the Romans want to consolidate themselves in the top 4 along with Inter, Milan and Naples, who remain undefeated at this start of the season. The duel will take place at the Stadio Olímpico in Rome starting at 8:45 p.m. and can be enjoyed at Movistar Champions League.
Cádiz – Barcelona | LaLiga | Movistar LaLiga
The Barça team plays much more than three points in their visit to the Silver Cup: after losing to Bayern and not showing good feelings against Granada, Dutch coach Ronald Koeman takes his place. If Barcelona does not win and does not convince, the sports management could announce his dismissal immediately. The team has lost its identity and has moved away from the course set by the club, something that has set off alarms. Without Pedri, Jordi Alba, Ansu Fati, Kun Agüero, Dembelé, Braithwaite ni Balde, the Catalans risk their lives against a team that last season they could not win: a draw and a defeat. The contest will take place at the Nuevo Mirandilla Stadium starting at 10:00 p.m. and can be seen on Movistar LaLiga.
