EIBAR vs DEPORTIVO 

SATURDAY 5 DECEMBER 2020 

13:00 (SA TIME) 

Banyana Banyana striker Thembi Kgatlana has scored 3 goals in her first 6 games for Eibar women in the Spanish Primera Division and on Saturday she will be looking to continue her good start to life in Spain. The attacker has not cemented a place in the team and she will be looking to prove her quality once again to coach Iker Dorronsoro. 

SL BENFICA vs PAÇOS DE FERREIRA

SUNDAY 6 DECEMBER 2020 

22:00 PM (SA TIME)

 

After scoring his first goal of the season last week against Famalicao and winning the Man of the Match award, winger Luther Singh followed that performance with a good 75 minutes against his old club Moreirense on Tuesday night as Pacos Ferreira won 1-0 away. Ferreira is having a good run of form and they will look to pull an upset on Sunday against Benfica. The 23-year-old was also named in the Liga Nos Team of the Week as reward for his performance last weekend.

ROSS COUNTY vs GLASGOW RANGERS 

SUNDAY 6 DECEMBER 2020 

14:00 PM (SA TIME)

 

At the back of his first league start for Rangers last Sunday, midfield maestro Bongani Zungu will be looking to get his second consecutive league start against Ross County. Rangers have started the season like a house on fire and currently sit top of the Scottish Premiership with a 9-point gap between them and their rivals Glasgow Celtic. Zungu got a run in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday as Rangers fought hard to win 3-2 against Standard Liege in a Group D clash. 

DJURGÅRDEN IF vs VARBERGS BOIS 

SUNDAY 6 DECEMBER 2020 

15:30 PM (SA TIME)

 

Varbergs BoIS has shown all the big teams in the Swedish Allsvenskan that they mean business although it’s the club’s first ever season in the top-flight. Last weekend the new boys defeated giants Malmo IF 3-2 in the league and South African duo Keanin Ayer and Tashreeq Matthews played a big part in the victory. Ayer scored his first goal of the season while Matthews laid an assist for the second. This Sunday they face another giant of Swedish football Djurgarden in the last league game of the season. The club sits in 11th place on the log and a win would push them even further up.

AGF AARHUS vs BRONDBY IF  

MONDAY 7 DECEMBER 2020 

20:00 PM (SA TIME)

 

Having established himself as a regular in the squad, former Cape Town City winger Gift Links is still looking for his first league goal for AGF Aarhus in the Superliga. The 22-year-old has played 7 league games this season and he only has one assist so far. Aarhus have established themselves as one of the teams who are contending for the league title against the likes of Copenhagen and Brondby IF. This is a big game in the league as two of the best teams lock horn for bragging rights and a precious three points.
