The final international break of the season is in the books, and it is time for the top leagues in Europe and Mexico to get back in full swing.
Manchester United will kick things off on Saturday as the club resumes its march to reclaiming the Premier League trophy at Sunderland. The host Black Cats have only collected three points in their last seven league matches, pushing them dangerously close to the drop zone. United will visit to the Stadium of Light for the first time since the final day of last season, when the Red Devils thought they had done enough to win the league title.
Perhaps the biggest match of the day will kick off before the rest of the day’s Premier League matches get going at 11 Eastern time. Inter Milan will host Serie A-leading Juventus in another edition of the historic Derby d’Italia. Inter, a club trying to stay alive in the race for a Champions League spot, snapped Juventus’s 49-match unbeaten run during the clubs’ last meeting. Roma will also be kicking off its match against Palermo at the same time—Francesco Totti’s first match after reaching the 20-year anniversary of his Serie A debut.
Bayern Munich will have a chance to make history on Saturday, depending on the result of Dortmund’s match with Stuttgart. If the defending champions fail to secure a win against Stuttgart, a win over Hamburg would clinch the Bundesliga title for Bayern. A Bundesliga team has never clinched the league title in the month of March. Will Bayern be the first?
