Share

It is yet another weekend full of entertaining games around the world and some of Mzansi’s stars will be in action for their respective clubs. 

UNTERHACHING vs BAYERN MUNICH II 

SATURDAY, 19 DECEMBER 2020

15:00 PM (SA TIME)

 

The 17-year-old winger has been getting a lot of game time since making his debut a few weeks ago. The SuperSport United academy product has been going through the ranks of Unterhaching for the past three years and coach Arie Van Lent has recently come out to the media praising the youngster’s abilities hinting that he does not see him staying long in the third tier. 

Mashigo now has a chance to impress scouts of the biggest club in Germany on Saturday when he faces their reserve side. 

MARITIMO vs BELENENSES SAD  

SATURDAY, 19 DECEMBER 2020 

17:00 PM (SA TIME)

The midfielder made his first league start for Belenenses two weeks ago as they defeated SC Braga 2-1. The KZN Academy graduate is likely to get another start alongside compatriot Thibang Phete, who is a regular in the starting XI for the Lisbon based side.

The trip away to Maritimo is likely to be tricky, but ‘O Belem’ has recently proven that they are able to grind out results. 

SC BRAGA vs CONDEIXA 

SATURDAY, 19 DECEMBER  

13:00 PM (SA TIME) 

It has been three weeks since the Portuguese Divisao Women has been on a break, but this weekend the action will be back in full swing.

Banyana Banyana forward Jermaine Seoposenwe was in hot form before the break as Braga was defeating every team on their path. Braga sit second on the log with 18 points from seven games. Leandra Smeda’s Famalicao leads the pack with 24 points from eight games so far. 

PAÇOS DE FERREIRA vs BOAVISTA 

SUNDAY, 20 DECEMBER 2020 

17:00 PM (SA TIME)

 

It has been a difficult three weeks for Ferreira who have faced all three of Portugal’s big clubs (SL Benfica, FC Porto, Sporting Lisbon). They beat Porto in the league, but this past Wednesday the giants got their revenge with a 2-1 cup win. 

On Wednesday, Singh came on as a second half substitute, but could not help Ferreira avoid defeat. The 23-year-old is a regular in the team and he will have a chance to get on the scoresheet against Boavista on Sunday afternoon. 

AGF AARHUS vs AAB AALBORG 

SUNDAY, 20 DECEMBER 2020 

17:00 PM (SA TIME)

 

Two Man of the Match awards in two games for Gift Links have boosted his confidence and on Sunday he will be motivated to do more against AAB who have been giving Aarhus a difficult time in recent games. The Danish club currently sits in third position on the Superliga table behind Brondby IF and Midtjylland. A win will take them to 24 points which will be equal to those of the log leaders.
