All the league action live this weekend on DAZN; Robert Pratley reports

Welcome to your weekend on DAZN, where we take a peek at the top tussles across the major European leagues, free for your enjoyment on our platforms. In France, Sonia Bompastor’s Lyon continues their march to the title, there is an extremely close race in Germany to claim the crown, Inter needs to win to have any hopes of chasing down Juventus in Italy, Barcelona will look to batter another opponent, and there is a crunch clash at Stamford Bridge as Arsenal and Chelsea once again lock horns in the WSL.


Let’s dive in.


D1 Arkema:

With a 7-point gap at the top, Lyon looks well placed to defend its crown again. Les Fenottes are doing it in some style, too, with 59 scored and just nine conceded, and they are still unbeaten domestically. PSG is praying it loses form soon but needs to keep its wits sharp to hold off Paris FC. At the bottom, both LOSC and Bordeaux risk being cut adrift from Dijon, and another win for Guingamp could see them clinch survival.


Game of the Weekend: Lyon vs Fleury, Mar 15, 21:00 CET/15:00 ET

These two teams meet just six days after Fleury stunned Lyon to knock them out of the Coupe de France Feminine on penalties. Sonia Bompastor complained about Fleury’s physicality that day, and she knows her team will be in for a similar tough battle at home. The hosts can’t afford to slip up again if they want to keep their unbeaten record alive in the league, with just five more match days after this clash.


Best of the Rest: Le Harve AC vs Montpellier HSC, Mar 17, 21:00 CET/15:00 ET

Le Havre has endured a frustrating season, but they sit 7 points above the relegation zone. Their inability to turn draws into positive results has seen them collect just a singular point seven times this year, an unwanted record within the division. However, a moment this weekend would be viewed as a positive result as they face a Montpellier outfit looking to consolidate 4th spot.

Frauen Bundesliga

League action has been suspended in Germany for the DFB Pokal Frauen for two weeks, so there’s no change at the top. Bayern still leads Wolfsburg by a singular point, but the Greens now boast a +6 goal difference against the Bavarians. At the bottom, Nürnberg and Duisburg both still look doomed, but they will hope to put pressure on Leipzig and Cologne, who are neither safe yet.


Game of the Weekend: Hoffenheim vs Wolfsburg, Mar 15, 18:30 CET/12:30 ET

It’s a titanic tussle in Germany as third-placed Hoffenheim takes on second-placed Wolfsburg. Tommy Stroot’s visitors are unbeaten in their last five outings and will be keen to claim three points to leapfrog Bayern, at least temporarily. They face tough opposition in hosts Hoffenheim, who are looking to cement themselves in third place and claim UWCL Football, having narrowly missed out last season.


Best of the Rest: Bayern Munich vs RB Leipzig, Mar 16, 12:00 CET/06:00 ET

Alexander Straus’ side may kick off this match in second place, and they will be eager to reclaim the top spot or, if Hoffenheim does them a favor, consolidate their position at the summit. Five wins on the bounce have put the Bavarians in excellent shape going into the business end of the season, and the return of influential defender Magda Eriksson has bolstered their squad. It could be a long afternoon for Leipzig in Bavaria.

Serie A Femminile:

With domestic action on hold due to the Coppa Italia Femminile, we return to the same picture with AS Roma comfortably ahead of Juventus as La Lupa enjoys a rare weekend off. The Old Lady knows Fiorentina is just four points behind, while there is a big gap between Sassuolo and Internazionale. In the Relegation Playoffs, Milan, Como, and Sampdoria all look safe, leaving Napoli and Pomigliano scrapping it out to avoid finishing bottom.


Game of the Weekend: Internazionale vs Juventus, Mar 17, 14:00 CET/08:00 ET

Hosts Inter sneaked into the top half of the table, but inconsistent performances have seen them struggle against some of the more prominent names this season. They have an excellent chance to show they can compete with the big guns as they host a Juventus side still processing its Coppa Femminile exit, which spelled the end for manager Joe Montemurro. Can the Nerrazzuri stun Juve?


Best of the Rest: US Sassuolo vs Fiorentina, Mar 16, 15:00 CET/09:00 ET

The hosts have enjoyed a credible season and are in the fourth spot. However, they will know that slipping up today could see them sink to the bottom of the Championship Playoffs. The visitors, meanwhile, sit comfortably in third and will have their eyes on catching Juventus, who sit just four points above. With a Cup Final to look forward to, it’s already been an excellent season for La Viola, and it could get even better.

Liga F:

There has been no change at the top of Liga F. Jonatan Giraldez’s Barcelona continue to annihilate the opposition. They’ve already scored 82 goals—30 more than second-placed Real Madrid and almost treble that of third-placed Levante. At the other end of the table, Sporting Huelva continues a slow and painful end to a tough season, but who will be dragged down with them…


Game of the Weekend: FC Barcelona vs Tenerife, Mar 17, 14:00 CET/08:00 ET

As the Catalans prepare to gear up for the return of the UWCL next week, they will first want to maintain their 9-point gap at the top of the table. The hosts should have little problem running over mid-table UD Tenerife, who are safe from relegation on 21 points. The return of Alexia and Rolfo has given the hosts a big boost as they enter crunch time—will either of them score on Sunday?


Best of the Rest: Granada vs Atletico Madrid, Mar 17, 12:00 CET/06:00 ET

The hosts sit just a single point above Real Betis and will be looking nervously over their shoulders. This weekend, they face a tough test as Atleti comes to town, but the visitors are in poor form. One win in 5 has severely hampered UWCL’s ambitions, and dropping more points this week could be fatal for these hopes.

Women’s Super League

Another league that has taken a week off for domestic cup action – congratulations to Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, and Leicester City for reaching the FA Cup Semi Finals – but crunch clashes across the league look set to have a significant impact on the title race this weekend. Chelsea and City remain neck-and-neck at the top, but Arsenal aren’t far behind.


Game of the Weekend: Chelsea vs Arsenal, Mar 15, 20:00 CET/14:00 ET

A bumper crowd is expected under the lights at Stamford Bridge as the WSL’s fiercest rivalry pens another chapter. Emma Hayes will be looking to ensure she gets revenge in her final WSL clash against Jonas Eidevall, while the Gunners know anything less than 3 points likely end their title hopes. With the Blues missing several key players, it could be the perfect time for the visitors to make a big statement. However, the defending champions will also be eager to avenge the 4-1 defeat at the Emirates in this fascinating clash of cultures and styles.


Best of the Rest: Brighton vs Manchester City, Mar 17, 13:30 CET/07:30 ET


dazn w football


Lee Geum Min’s late strike stunned the Citizens in November, and Gareth Taylor’s side will be hoping they don’t suffer a third defeat in a row as they visit the South Coast this weekend. All eyes will be on whether Bunny Shaw will be fit to start against the Seagulls after she left the field in pain in last week’s late FA Cup capitulation. At the same time, it’ll be a test of Kiara Keating’s mentality after some recent patchy performances. Brighton are safe from relegation but suffered their cup disappointment and will be eager to get back on track.
