The Guide: What we are looking forward to from this Best Prada Outlet Italy weekend’s football
Can Magath’s men keep focus?
It’s been a tumultuous week in Germany, with Felix Magath, coach of leaders Wolfsburg, announcing he’s leaving for Schalke and a big bag of cash. “It is all about money,” he admitted. “Everything else is a load of tosh.” Still, romance isn’t quite dead yet: Wolfsburg are three points clear of Bayern Munich at the top, and have every chance of landing their first-ever German store title.
They need a big performance this weekend, though, travelling to in-form Stuttgart. The fact Magath can call on a full squad will help; his opposite number, Markus Babbel, must do without first-choice centre-backs Matthieu Delpierre and Serdar Tasci. The only worry for the leaders, in fact, is the timing of Magath’s announcement. “The players are still 100% focused,” insists Magath. “The goal of winning the title is too big that we would allow our attention to be distracted. Our full focus is on Stuttgart.”
Will it be nice in Nice for Marseille?
Marseille haven’t won a pot since winning the first Champions League in 1993, but they’re on the brink this season, sitting proudly atop the French league with only four matches to play, level on points with Bordeaux but with a superior goal difference. The margin’s only one goal, though, and that’s the least of Eric Gerets’ side’s worries: they’ve got by Are All Prada Products Made In Italy far the tougher run-in. And this weekend’s action could be pivotal.
Marseille travel to Nice, an intimidating journey and not one guaranteed to have three points at the end of it. Meanwhile Bordeaux go to Valenciennes, Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada Clothing Uk a tricky-enough fixture Authentic Prada Handbag Uk but less problematic than the one facing Marseille. Should Bordeaux match Marseille’s result – or, Authentic Prada Bags For Cheap as is more likely, better it – they’ll be hot favourites for the title with an easy run-in (two home games, against mid-table sides Le Mans and Monaco, and a trip to struggling Caen). Marseille, meanwhile, face a winnable trip to Nancy but home fixtures against seventh-placed Rennes and outgoing champions Lyon. Unless Marseille can keep scrapping this weekend, the outgoing Gerets is unlikely to have much to cheer at the season’s end.
Can Barça secure the title – and will Negredo add to his haul?
Barcelona can win the Spanish title this weekend, should results go their way. If they beat Villarreal at home, and Real Madrid fail to do for Champions League place-chasing Valencia, they’ll open up at least a nine-point gap over their arch rivals. And with a better head-to-head Authentic Prada Nylon Messenger Bag record against the soon-to-be-deposed champions, that will be enough. Then on Wednesday all they’ll need to do is beat mid-table Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey final, and two-thirds of Spain’s first-ever Treble will be on.
But let’s not bother with that, keeping an eye instead on the goalscoring antics Authentic Prada Handbags For Cheap of Almeria striker Alvaro Negredo. He’s already scored 19 goals this season for a resolutely middling side, and will be looking to add to his total Authentic Prada Handbags Canada this weekend against relegation-haunted Gijón. He’s worth keeping an eye on because he could well end up in the Premier League next season, with Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United keeping tabs on the situation (to varying degrees, if you believe what you read, which we do, cos we’re gullible).
Negredo’s preference is a move to Real Madrid, from whom he’s out on loan, but he doesn’t want to sit on the bench. “If I’m going to go to Liverpool and they make another signing, on top of Fernando Torres and the current strikers they have, it’s perhaps not best for me to go there,” he says. “The possibility that David Villa is going to Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada Online Shop leave could make Valencia the Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada Messenger Bag best destination for me, but it’s clear that if Madrid sell players then my first option is them.” Whatever happens to the 23-year-old striker, the domino effect in the transfer market is likely to effect at least one English club.
