5 football games to look forward to in March
- Let's take a look at the five monumental clashes set for March.
In the context of the football world, there aren't a lot of months as exciting as March. It's that time of the year when games come in thick and fast in Europe's top five leagues and when the Champions League really kicks on.
As the season approaches its end phase, title races across the continent begin taking shape and the contenders for the Champions League knockout stages become clearer.
With that in mind, let's have a look at the five games that you must surely watch this month:
#1 Chelsea vs Liverpool (March 3- FA Cup fifth round)
The FA Cup magic is still alive as the old English club tournament provides us with one of the most mouthwatering ties of the month in the form of Chelsea's home fixture against Liverpool on March 3. Although the Blues are still in the Champions League, a 3-0 first-leg defeat against Bayern Munich has all but reduced their chances of any silverware this season. They will certainly be aiming for victory in the FA Cup to finish the season with at least one trophy.
On the other hand, the Merseysiders are running away with the Premier League title, and a bit of FA Cup glory could just be sweetmeat for them. With the chance of a treble still alive, the Reds could really pursue this with all that they have. The two English sides are all set to go blow for blow in the encounter and it surely is a must-watch game.
#2 Manchester United vs Manchester City (March 8- Premier League)
Manchester City totally outclassed their crosstown rivals when the two teams met in the League Cup semi-final in January but since then, things have gone up for Manchester United as they secured Bruno Fernandes' services on the last day of the January transfer window.
The Portuguese sensation has so far impressed for his new club and if the Red Devils can attain consistency in the meantime, this fixture could prove to be an exciting watch. Although the Citizens do not have much to play for in the league, they would still want to get one up against their city rivals. Keep an eye on this one as it could be a pretty enthralling clash.
