Four football matches to watch this weekend

Enyimba v Al-Ittihad @Enyimba International Stadium at 3:30 p.m. on December 5

Enyimba played their last competitive game on October 24 while Al-Ittihad started their 2021/22 championship campaign with an away victory over Abu Salim on November 22.

Will rust play a big role in Sunday’s shock? Last week, Enyimba visited Tunisia but the match, which was the first leg of this meeting, had to be postponed because the Nigerian team did not arrive on the scene on time.

With Finidi George at the helm, the aba Millionaires should still have enough to clinch a great victory which will put them in a good position for the second leg.

Current form: Enyimba [W-W-W-D-D]; Al-Ittihad [W-L-D-W-W]

Face-to-face

05/08/11 CCL Enyimba 1 – 0 Al-Ittihad

Prediction: Enyimba 1-1 Al Ittihad

AS Roma – Inter Milan @Stadio Olimpico @ 6 p.m. on December 4th

Roma’s last victory over Inter dates back to February 2017. Jose Mourinho welcomes his former side to the Stadio Olimpico nine points behind his opponents in fifth place. Inter haven’t lost since October 16 and have had a run that sees them two points behind league leaders Napoli. A victory for Inter and nothing less for Napoli and AC Milan could take the lead in Serie A for the first time this season.

Mourinho has to do without his top scorer, Tammy Abraham, due to a suspension, which means a start for Eldor Shomurodov while Inter will be without Andrea Ranocchia, Matteo Darmian and Stefan de Vrij.

Borussia Dortmund v Bayern Munich @ Signal-Iduna-Park at 6.30 p.m. on December 4

A point separates the two teams before the second “Der Klassiker” of the season.

After being knocked out of the Champions League, Marco Rose knows that a win against Bayern will appease fans, but Dortmund have not celebrated a league win against Bayern since November 2018.

Rose will be more confident in a good result with the return of Erling Haaland, who came off the bench to score against Wolfsburg last weekend. Bayern will be deprived of influential Joshua Kimmich as he and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting have tested positive for COVID-19, while Dortmund will need to find a replacement for Jude Bellingham’s dynamic midfield.

Current form: Dortmund [W-L-W-L-L]; Bayern [W-W-L-W-W]

West Ham v Chelsea @London Stadium at 1:30 p.m. on December 4

West Ham’s early-season form is faltering after scoring just one point in their last three league games, while the Chelsea side have suffered debilitating injuries in recent times. Thomas Tuchel admitted the league leaders ‘stole’ all three points from Watford when they met midweek as they clung to first place by one point.

David Moyes has his own injury concerns with Aaron Cresswell and Angelo Ogbonna. West Ham have lost twice in the league this season at London Stadium, but they have also inflicted Liverpool’s only loss this season at home. Chelsea will be without Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kanté, Ben Chilwell and Trevoh Chalobah although Romelu Lukaku should be able to start for the first time since October 16.
