Mouth Watering – European Football Preview with Liberty Shield VPN

Last weekend’s incredible line up of Sunday games failed to deliver what was hoped. The major European football leagues Bundesliga, Ligue 1, Serie A and La Liga are streamed live by a selection of channels including Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon Prime and La Liga TV.

The games last week were good but some of them didn’t quite live up to the billing and frailties of certain clubs were on display. Manchester United in particular were exposed to be nowhere close to what they had presented themselves as, while Liverpool proved the pre-season doubters wrong and displayed their qualities. This weekend once again presents some mouth watering games from across the big four leagues around Europe so let’s jump straight in and preview four games that are worth a watch this weekend. Fun Fact: European Football VPN is one of the most searched terms on Google.

Our European Football VPN articles are brought to you in partnership with EPL Index, and Dave Hendrick – host of the Two Footed Podcast, offering FREE podcasts to football fans.

⚽ PSG vs Lille
🇫🇷 Ligue 1
📅 Friday 29 October 2021
⏰ 2000 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ BT Sport Live Streaming
PSG vs Lille Ligue 1 VPN IPTV

Last season’s top two in Ligue 1 come head to head on Friday night in a game that could be very important to Mauricio Pochettino’s future. It sounds insane, but Pochettino has been coming under increasing pressure at PSG despite being clear at the top of Ligue 1 and top of their Champions League group. The expectations at the club are incredibly high, this is the club that sacked Thomas Tuchel just months after he reached a Champions League final and won another league title remember. Pochettino hasn’t won many admirers with his style of football and the general feeling is that he isn’t getting the best out of Messi, Neymar and Mbappe. The new summer signings have been a mixed bag thus far, and he has taken flak for failing to get the most out of players like Gini Wijnaldum.

Lille are not the same team that won the title. They lost manager Christophe Galtier to Nice after he lost faith in the new ownerships ability to maintain a title challenging team after Luis Campos’ departure. Goalkeeper Mike Maignan and midfielder Boubakary Soumare both left the club over the summer, with Maignan in particular being a huge blow. He had established himself as the best goalkeeper in Ligue 1 over the last couple of years. Ironically enough, the reason AC Milan made the move to sign him is because PSG signed Gigi Donnarumma. They did manage to hold on to Jonathan David, Sven Botman and Renato Sanches over the summer, though they did try quite hard to sell Sanches. The only summer arrival is Amadou Onana, a talented but raw midfielder. It’s a shame for Lille, who in previous summers had also lost Nicolas Pepe and Victor Osimhen, but they will remain a competitive team in terms of the European positions, even if it’s likely to be a long time before challenge for the title again.


⚽ Atalanta vs Lazio
🇮🇹 Serie A
📅 Saturday 30 October 2021
⏰ 1400 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ No UK Streaming – International IPTV Only
Atalanta vs Lazio Serie A VPN IPTV stream.

This promises to be an outstanding game of football between two sides who don’t know how to play negative football. Managed by two old style mavericks, Gian Piero Gasperini and Maurizio Sarri, who believe in playing football in way that is in stark contrast with Italian traditions. They’re not from the Capello school of thought. There are aspects of Arrigo Sacchi’s pressing that they have both adopted, but the coach who’s fingerprints are on their teams is Zdenek Zeman. Zeman, cigarette hanging from his bottom lip at all timers, was a complete outlier in Italian football in the 80s and 90s as his teams decided that defended was not important and played with an all out attacking mandate that saw them gain many admirers but also draw the ire of the establishment who believed that defending was the second religion in the country, with Franco Baresi second only to the Pope in terms of reverence.

Both Gasperini and Sarri have borrowed heavily from Zeman, and enjoyed more success than he did. Gasperini has elevated Atalanta into the conversation of regular top four qualification and title challenges in his five years in charge. His 3-4-3 set up has drawn admirers all over Europe, but Atalanta aren’t quite the attacking threat they were a couple of years back. They haven’t quite replaced Papu Gomez, Josip Ilicic has been slowed by injuries and age, and players like Pasalic haven’t been as good in the last 18 months as they were in the 18 months beforehand. They’re still a lot of fun to watch, and Gasperini continues to keep them in the top four mix despite continually losing his best players. Christian Romero’s departure to Spurs has hurt them defensively, but they continue to patch it together.

Sarri did similar at Napoli, and then won major honours at Chelsea and Juventus before landing at Lazio this past summer. He has quickly moved to adapt the team from the 3-5-1-1 that Simone Inzaghi employed to his own 4-3-3 and made subtle tweaks to the playing style as he puts his own imprint on what was already a good team. Lazio have been a lot of fun to watch this season, with Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Luis Alberto, a revitalised Felipe Anderson, and Ciro Immobile making them an excellent attacking team. Unfortunately they’ve been as bad defensively as they’ve been good going forward. Sarri has never been known as a great defensive coach, preferring to focus on control and attack, but if he wants to have success with Lazio he’s going to have to improve things at the other end. Playing a real goalkeeper rather than the corpse of Pepe Reina would be a good start.


⚽ Eintracht Frankfurt vs RB Leipzig
🇩🇪 Bundesliga
📅 Saturday 30 October 2021
⏰ 1730 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ Sky Sports Live Streaming

Eintracht Frankfurt vs RB Leipzig Bundesliga VPN IPTV

These two teams changed manager in the summer and there was a lot of excitement about both, but thus far neither new manager has lived up to the billing.

Oliver Glasner took Wolfsburg to a top 4 finish and a place in the Champions League before departing for Frankfurt, the team who missed on Champions League football because of Wolfsburg getting that spot. Adi Hutter had done an outstanding job in his time there, as had Nico Kovacs before him. There had been some high profile departures over the years but Eintracht continued to find good players and continued to be a quality team. The summer sale of Andre Silva has been a hammer blow though. Without the Portuguese striker, they have really struggled to score goals. They’ve been decent defensively, but they just have nothing going forward. They really need to turn things around, and it needs to happen soon. Glasner did outstanding work at Wolfsburg and he needs to start making things work in Frankfurt.

Jesse Marsch had spent six years in the Red Bull organization, as a manager at NY Red Bulls and Red Bull Salzburg with a stint as an assistant at RB Leipzig sandwiched in between. He was everything they wanted in a manager. Progressive, attack minded, and already in grain with they fabric of how they work. He had won multiple titles in Austria with Salzburg and was seen as the natural replacement for Julian Nagelsmann. Unfortunately for Marsch, and Leipzig, things have not gone to plan just yet. Six defeats in the first 14 games was not part of the plan. Now the good news is that they seem to have turned the corner and are unbeaten in their last five league matches. Nagelsmann had introduced some unique tactical quirks to they Leipzig team that Marsch does not want, so much of the coaching thus far has involved undoing a lot of Nagelsmann work and bringing them back to the system of principals that Ralf Rangnick built the project on.

This is an important game for both teams, with Eintracht desperate for the win to get the season some momentum and Leipzig wanting to keep pace with the top four so that they are still in the mix for a Champions League spot come the end of the season.


⚽ Real Sociedad vs Athletic Bilbao
🇪🇸 La Liga
📅 Sunday 31 October 2021
⏰ 2000 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ La Liga TV
Real Sociedad vs Athletic Bilbao IPTV VPN La Liga TV

The Basque Derby is always worth your while. There’s a very special feel to it, with two clubs that should be admired for how they operate going head to head with more than just three points on the line. There’s national pride at stake here. And by nation, I mean the Basque Country. La Real and Athletic Club are proud of their heritage and their homeland, and their fans will tell you that are Basque, not Spanish.

Real Sociedad are just a great team to watch, and a great team to root for. They, along with Sevilla, are the best alternative to the Madrid pair and Barcelona. They rarely play a boring game, the style of football is a joy to watch and they also work really hard for each other on and off the ball. It’s a really likeable group of players with just a few stars. David Silva remains a wizard at 35 years of age and his ability to link the attack and midfield is key to how they play. Signing him as a replacement for Martin Odegaard after Real Madrid reneged on their agreement with the team from San Sebastian was a stroke of genius. Imanol Alguacil has build a team with a strong midfield and a lethal attack, and Silva is the binding agent that links them. In attack, Alexander Isak and Mikel Oyarzabal are the stars, they are worth the price of admission by themselves. They are positioning themselves this season for a real top four tilt, and a win on Sunday would be a big help, as well as giving them bragging rights.

Athletic Bilbao might be the single most admirable club in Europe because of how they operate. Their recruitment policy, and the legislations they stand to over who can and can’t play for the club, are a reminder of times past when teams were made up of players from days gone by. Does it hold the club back? Of course. By limiting themselves to only signing players from the Basque region, or those with connections to the region, they are cutting off the vast majority of the pool of players they could sign, which limits how good they can be as a team. If they were the only club in the Basque region it would be different, but with La Real and Osasuna also recruiting from the same talent pool it becomes very difficult. With that said, these policy make their accomplishments far more impressive. It makes staying in La Liga an impressive feat, let alone managing anything more. They, along with Real Madrid and Barcelona, are the only teams never to be relegated from the top flight which is incredible when you consider the spending power and reach of the other two. Under Marcelino they have evolved into a team that is very hard to beat and despite sitting 10th in the table this season, they have lost only once while drawing with Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Villarreal who would all have been favoured to beat them.

No matter where you are in the world, you can use your Liberty Shield VPN to find a way to watch all of these games.
