It’s another Saturday offering plenty of exciting football actions across leagues in Europe, Africa and Asia.
The Dutch Eredivise becomes the latest European league to return from the winter break, but the focus, however, will be on the oldest football competition English FA Cup, which enters its Third Round stage, welcoming elite clubs from the English top-tier.
Kicking off Saturday’s actions in the FA Cup is the clash between Alexander Iwobi’s Everton and English Championship strugglers Rotherham at the Goodison Park.
Everton were dumped out of the FA Cup in the Third Round last season by local rivals Liverpool, though the Toffees have been handed a decidedly easier draw this year.
Championship strugglers and relegation candidates Rotherham are the visitors to Goodison Park this afternoon, and having lost each of their last seven away assignments on the spin, The Millers look ill-equipped to test their higher-class hosts.
The Toffees last met Rotherham back in August 2018 for a Carabao Cup clash at Goodison Park, where a brace from Dominic Calvert-Lewin allowed the hosts to ease to a 3-1 victory.
Meanwhile, it will be the battle of three Nigerian players when John Mikel Obi’s Stoke City take on Leicester City, parading Super Eagles duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho for an exciting FA Cup Third Round clash at the Bet365 Stadium.
FA Cup quarter finalists in two of the last three seasons, Leicester City look capable of launching another prolonged assault on domestic silverware this year, and the classy Foxes should have too much quality for Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium this weekend.
With just one win from their last eight games, the Potters’ preparation for their Third Round tie has been less than ideal, and Stoke’s lack of punch in the final third has seen them score one or fewer goals in each of their last 11 assignments.
Other Nigerian players expected to be on FA Cup Third Round duty include: Omatsone Aluko for Reading away at Luton; William Troost-Ekong for Watford away at Odion Ighalo’s Manchester United; Semi Ajayi for West Bromwich Albion away at Blackpool; Olufemi Akinwande for Stevenage at home to Swansea City; Ola Aina for Fulham away at Oddyseus Alfa’s Queens Park Rangers.
Elsewhere in Europe, there are full match programs in the Italian Serie A, Spanish La Liga, German Bundesliga and French Ligue 1. Domestic leagues in Africa including the Egyptian Premier League, Tunisian Professionelle Ligue and South African Premier Soccer League are not left out of the Saturday’s frenzy.
