Welcome to the new Euro Football Weekly – Eurotrash.

Each week we’ll go through the Spanish, Italian, and French Leagues in detail, with some updates and tidbits on other leagues.

For your German news and views, help yourself to our separate Bundesliga column here and look out for it each week.

So enjoy our thoughts, stats and best bets which are the best that money can’t buy.

FOOTBALL - NEWS RESULTS HEADER a

– Talk in Europe is of Champions League draws and to a lesser extent – Europa League draws. The best games in our opinion and hence the ones we’re looking forward to are below. Arsenal for a change weren’t punished for finishing second with a date with Bayern Munich. Man City were with Barcelona. Although it does provide the right stage to show their spend to success ratio in the Champions league isn’t as awful as everyone thinks it is.
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE. – PSG v Chelsea – Man City v Barcelona – Bor Dortmund v Juventus

EUROPA LEAGUE

– Celtic v Inter

– Liverpool v Besiktas

– Villareal v Salzburg

– PSV v Zenit

 

– Other banter revolves around whether Real Madrid can extend their unbeaten and winning run. Although participation in the Club world Cup will allow other to catch up slightly over the weekend.

– Cristiano Ronaldo won the BBC overseas sportsperson of the year, a far more popular win than the British winner Lewis Hamilton. Both winners are similar though and certainly don’t lack for ego.

– Balotelli fresh from injury and suspension looks set to be heading back to Europe after failing to make a positive impression at Liverpool. Not the worst transfer and less expensive at 16M than others at Liverpool.

– Former Balotelli combatant Mancini won his first game at Inter since taking over. Maybe a reunion in Milan?

– The top two in France both lost giving Lyon, St Etienne, and others a sniff of a title race after all.
