Share

Today another exciting football packed weekend begins all over the world with almost all the leagues back in action from Belgium to France, from France to the Netherlands and from the Netherlands to Portugal.

Several South African players will be in action for their respective clubs and FARPost looks at some of the interesting encounters our players will be involved in starting tonight until Monday night.

PAÇOS DE FERREIRA VS VITORIA GUIMARAES

FRIDAY, 2 OCTOBER 2020

KICK OFF – 22:15 (SOUTH AFRICAN TIME)

Tonight Lyle Foster and Luther Singh will have to put friendship aside for 90 minutes as Singh’s Ferreira looks to bounce back from a defeat at home against giants Sporting Lisbon while Foster will be looking to get back into the starting XI for Guimaraes who drew their last game against Rio Ave away from home.

Foster did not make it off the bench for Guimaraes while Singh was substituted in the second half after a decent showing on the day.

AMIENS VS CAEN

SATURDAY, 3 OCTOBER 2020

KICK OFF – 15:30 PM (SOUTH AFRICAN TIME)

After making his come back to the Amiens squad last weekend and coming on in the second half of the draw at home against Pau, former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Bongani Zungu will be looking to get more minutes under his belt this coming Saturday as Amiens take on Caen away from home in Ligue 2.

Zungu has been a subject of a lot of transfer speculation in the current transfer window, but it remains to be seen if the midfielder will be staying or leaving this season.

CARLISLE UNITED VS BARROW

SATURDAY, 3 OCTOBER 2020

KICK OFF – 16:00 (SOUTH AFRICAN TIME)

After leaving South Africa for England’s league two a few weeks ago Dean Furman has hit the ground running with his new club. Furman has started the two previous games for Carlisle in the defeat against Scunthorpe and a win at home against Southend United.

The former SuperSport United captain will look to continue where he left off against Scunthorpe where he marshalled the midfield for the whole 90 minutes.

ANDERLECHT VS CLUB BRUGGE

SUNDAY, 4 OCTOBER 2020

KICK OFF – 13:30 PM (SOUTH AFRICAN TIME)

It is one of the biggest games in the Belgian Pro League as the two clubs have dominated Belgian football for decades. Although on paper Anderlecht have the better history having won more league titles and cups than Brugge, it is Brugge that holds the advantage currently having won the league title last season.

Ironically, the South African player involved in this game, Percy Tau will be having mixed emotions having won the league with Club Brugge while on loan there from Brighton & Hove Albion.

Now the attacker is on loan at Anderlecht where he has started his season very well with two goals from five games he has featured in so far. It remains to be seen if the ‘Lion of Judah’ will haunt Club Brugge on his return to the Jan Breydel Stadium.

AGF AAHURS VS AAB AALBORG

SUNDAY, 4 OCTOBER 2020

KICK OFF – 16:00 (SOUTH AFRICAN TIME)

After two weeks on the side-lines South African youth international winger Gift Links is expected to be back in the matchday squad for Danish Superliga side AGF Aarhus as they look to continue their winning form in the league. In their last league game AGF convincingly beat OB 4-2.

Links pulled a hamstring two weeks ago as AGF took on FC Mura in the Europa League, they lost that game 3-0 and got knocked out of the competition. Links told this publication that he is expecting to be back as soon as possible so hopefully the 22-year-old makes his comeback this Sunday.
