AS Saint-Etienne vs AS Monaco  
Competition: French Ligue 1
Date: 15 December 2017
Kick-off Time: 20:45 GMT
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard
Saint-Etienne team need to play best to remain undefeated in this game with the current champions. The replacement of Garcia did not help the team too much, who was otherwise fired after a shocking home defeat of 5-0 in the match with Olympique Lyon, because the team, under the baton of new coach Sable, only made two home draws and three guest defeats.The last defeat was inflicted by Olympique Marseille at Velodrome Stadium, with a score of 3:0, while they in the same way ended their previous performance at Bordeaux. St. Etienne managed to avoid defeat in their last two appearances, but now against Monaco, they must be even more aggressive if they want to get a positive result. Defenders Perrin and Silva are out of action due to injuries, and striker Hamoum, while defender Pierre-Gabriel is also unable to perform.
For to the current French rivals, AS Monaco, it is now quite certain that they will not be able to defend that title, because they have nine points less after 17 rounds than the leading Paris Saint Germain, which recently defeated them in Monaco with 2-1. After that coach, Jardim’s players, were defeated by Nantes, while they were a little better in the next two games and they were defeated at home with 1-0 by Angers and last weekend with 3-2 by Troyes.Nevertheless, Monaco made a routine victory of 2-0 at home against Caen, while they had to leave the UEFA Champions League in the worst possible way because they were defeated by RP Leipzig and FC Porto in the last two rounds and they ended up in the last place in their group. However, this is good thing in some way, because they can now fully dedicate themselves to their domestic championship and the struggle for placement in the Champions League. Injured midfielders Tielemans and Traore and striker Jovetic will not be able to play this match.

Probable lineups:
AS Saint-Etienne: Ruffier – Janko, Theophile-Catherine, Lacroix, M'Bengue – Dabo, Selnaes, Pajot – Bamba, Diony, Cabella
AS Monaco: Subasic – Sidibe, Glik, Jemerson, Jorge – Fabinho, Moutinho – Ghezzal, Lemar, Keita – Falcao

FC Porto vs Benfica Primeira Liga 01/12/2017

Porto vs Benfica
Competition: Primeira Liga
 Date: 1 December 2017
Kick-off Time: 20:30 GMT
Venue: Estadio Do Dragao, Porto
FC Porto was behind their big rival from Lisbon, so the team's only goal this season was to end this four-year rule of Benfica in the Primeira Liga. Currently, everything is going well for the team, since they, after 12 rounds played, are holding the 1st place on the table, while, with a victory in this great derby, they will have six points more than the current champions.
However, Sporting is in the race for the very top, and they have only two points less than FC Porto, after the championship leader last weekend only played a draw 1-1 against Deportivo Aves. Previously, coach Conceicao’s players, have with the same result played away against Besiktas in the UEFA Champions League, so now, Porto needs any kind of victory in the last round when they are welcoming the already written off Monaco.The only absence for Benfica in this game is the suspended striker, Corona.
On the contrary, Benfica's players have long lost all hope for placement in the round of sixteen of the UEFA Champions League, so it is no surprise that they were recently defeated by CSKA Moscow away with 2-0. Benfica, the current Portuguese champions, have experienced the same fate in the previous four rounds, which means that they no longer have any chance to win placement in the UEFA Europa league as the third ranked team, because they have 09 points less than Basel and CSKA Moscow before this last round.
However, after the fifth consecutive defeat in the Champions League, coach Rui Vitorie's players, made a convincing home win of 6-0 over Setubal, so they are now in a better mood awaiting the match with the leader Porto. But, because of these three points less, it would not be a good thing for Benfica to lose at Dragao Stadium. The injured players are: goalkeeper, Julio Cesar, and center-back, Dias.

Manchester United vs Watford English Premier League 28/11/2017

Watford vs Manchester United
Competition: Premier League
Date: 28 November 2017
Kick-off Time: 20:00 GMT
Venue: Vicarage Road Stadium, Watford
Watford team are aware that now is far more difficult task given that the guests from Manchester occupy at the moment the second place in the table and every point is very important in the race for the top. Manchester United come to Watford after three consecutive defeats away, which is a chance for coach Silva players especially, as in two previous rounds, won West Ham at home 2-0 and Newcastle away 3-0 last weekend.
Player, Troy Deeney, is present for this after serving a three-game ban while, Miguel Britos and Kiko Femenia, are both doubts for this game. Coach, Marvin Zeegelaar's probable lineups, may keep Jose Holebas out, with in-form Will Hughes also expected to retain his starting berth in midfield alongside Aboulaye Doucourè and Roberto Pereyra. In the up front, striker Andrè Gray should continue to lead the line, with Richarlison tucked behind him. In defense, Sebastian Prodl, Christian Kabasele and Adrian Mariappa are expected  to defend Heurelho Gomes' posts. While player: Younes Kaboul, Craig Cathcart, Tommie Hoban, Isaac Success, and Nathaniel Chalobah are all remaining injured.
The guests from Manchester made a good record of 10 wins out of 10 at Old Trafford on Saturday with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Brighton. A win is a win though, and it kept Manchester Uinted in the second place in the Premier League table. Anyway, the team have tasted defeat in three of their last four road trips in all competitions, including their last two Premier League away matches at Huddersfield and Chelsea as well as an UEFA Champions League clash in Basel, Switzerland. The Red Devils have won 9 of their last 10 games against Watford in all competitions but lost by 3-1 in this corresponding fixture last season. Centre-backs, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones, are still doubtful of attending this match, which means that coach, Josè Mourinho, could play with a three main backline formed by players: Marcos Rojo, Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof. Matteo Darmian and Daley Blind are likely to start as wing backs of the 3-5-1-1 system, meaning that Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia will stay on the bench. Coach, Mourinho,may make major changes  up front, where Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are likely to be rested, allowing Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Juan Mata or Zlatan Ibrahimovic to support a struggling Romelu Lukaku in attack. Ander Herrera, Pual Pogba and Marouane Fellaini are expected to start in the middle of the match, with player, Nemanja Matic, as further option.

Stuttgart vs Borussia Dortmund Bundesliga 17-11-2017

VfB Stuttgart vs Borussia Dortmund 
Competition: German Bundesliga
Date: 17 November 2017

In the first-third of the Bundesliga championship, VfBStuttgart has played almost with the same rhythm and with only one draw at home. In the remaining four games in front of their supporters, Stuttgart celebrated victories, but they lost all six games and only scored three goals. Before the break the team played against HSV away and that was the sixth defeat, where they managed to score one goal in moments, when they were lesser players on the field.
Player, Burnic, was excluded at the very beginning of the match and it was clear then that it would be hard to do something. This feeling was particularly intensified when Stuttgart received the first goal, and then they equalized at the beginning of the second half and it woke up the hope that lasted only ten minutes. The good news of the team was that center-back, Badstuber, recovered and that midfielder Ascacibar completed his suspension, while Burnic will not certainly be in the team from the previously injured players.
Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, is surely one of the teams, which benefited from this short break, because they were in the big crisis before. They made two draws with Nicosia APOEL practically excluded them from the fight for the round of sixteen of the UEFA Champions League, in which they certainly had great ambitions and will now have to contend with UEFA Europa League. Dortmund started well in the championship and then fell incomprehensibly, so they are without a win in the previous four games. From this, the team only played one draw and that was away with Eintracht, where they dropped two goals advantage.
They were defeated at home in two big derbies from Leipzig and Bayern Munich, and completely unexpected by Hannover as guests. Borussia Dortmund have received 12 goals in these four matches and it is clear that they have a problem, so now Bartra and Sokratis are expected, in formation with four in the last line, where Piszczek is missing. Toljan could be in that position, and perhaps Guerreiro plays on the left back. 

Probable Lineups For Stuttgart and Borussia Dortmund:
VfB Stuttgart: Zieler – Beck, Baumgartl, Badstuber, Insua – Ascacibar, Aogo – Asano, Akolo, Ozcan – Ginczek
Borussia Dortmund: Burki – Toljan, Bartra, Sokratis, Guerreiro – Sahin, Castro, M.Gotze – Yarmolenko, Pulisic, Aubameyang

Manchester City vs Napoli
Competition: UEFA Champions League
Kick-off Time: 19:45 GMT 
Date: 17 October 2017
Venue: Etihad Stadium, Manchester 

Manchester United will try to defeat Napoli, especially as they will play at their Etihad stadium. Manchester City has a nine-game winning streak out of which two matches were won in the UEFA Champions League, with Feyenoord away and Shakhtar at home, one in the League Cup and 06 in the English Premier League, which in fact propelled the team at the leading place in table.
In the previous round, Manchester City had the same number as the city rival Manchester United, but, after home victory of even 7-2 over Stoke and United’s draw with Liverpool away, the point difference between these two teams is 02 points, while third-placed Tottenham already lags for five points. It is supposed that coach, Guardiola, will not make drastic changes in the team for this match with Napoli, especially as out of action are only from before: injured defenders Kompany and Mendy.
Napoli,on the other side, is leader in the Italian Serie A before this UEFA Champions League match, although unlike Manchester City, they haven’t lost a single point by now. In the first 08 rounds of the Italian Serie A, coach Sarri players, won the same number of times, so now Napoli has two points more than Inter Milan, which will meet in next round and even five more than third-placed Juventus and fourth-positioned Lazio.
Taking into account that Napoli won a very valuable away victory over Roma 1-0, which means that the atmosphere in the locker room before Manchester trip is at the highest possible level. Ahead of them is a very tough match, given that Manchester City is in excellent shape at the moment. In addition to that, after defeat by Shakhtar, Napoli currently has 03 points fewer. Out of action for this game are only injured forward Milik and suspended stopper Koulibaly.

Probable lineups for the match:
Manchester City: Ederson – Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Delph – de Bruyne, Fernandinho, D. Silva – Sterling, Jesus, Sane
Napoli: Reina – Hysaj, Albiol, Chiriches, Ghoulam – Allan, Jorginho, Hamsik – Callejon, Mertens, Insigne
