Real Madrid vs. Getafe
Cristiano Ronaldo and the Los Blancos are at it again. Last week, the world's highest-paid football player once again showed a complete repertoire of his skills as he went to book a hat-trick in their dominant 6-1 victory against Galatasaray in the Champions League opener.
Now, Ronaldo is back in Spanish La Liga play with the intention of scoring more goals against a team that has been struggling to defend between the pipes in their first four outings.
Getafe in the lower half of the Spanish La Liga standings after coming up with only one victory along with one draw and two losses. Getafe finally booked a 2-1 win over Osasuna last Sunday, but facing a juggernaut team like Real Madrid poses so many problems for the ball club.
Real Madrid is expected to field Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Isco and the rest of their star-studded lineup in the hunt for win no.4 in the Spanish La Liga.
''It's a luxury to have Cristiano here. He is one of those players who appear from century to century and we are lucky to have him on our team,'' Real Madrid president Florentino Perez told ESPN.
However, former Real Madrid and current Getafe midfielder Pedro Mosquera remains optimistic that his team has a shot at pulling off an upset on Sunday as long they play with confidence on the pitch.
''The other day the game against Osasuna gave me a lot of confidence and against Madrid we must play without fear but with respect,'' Perdor told Marca.com via ESPN.
A.C Milan vs. Napoli
Sunday's Italia Serie A schedule features an interesting matchup between league kingpin AC Milan and up-and-coming power Napoli. AC Milan came through with a victory over Celtic in their UEFA Champions League opener, but injury on their key players remains an issue going forward. On the other hand, Napoli has been outstanding in their past three games, beating Chievo 4-2 and Atalanta 2-0 before last year's UEFA Champions League runner-up Dorthmund 2-1.
