Europe joined the boxing day-2022: the Catalan derby on New Year’s Eve, the battle of the leaders of the French Championship on January 1, and Chelsea – MS before Orthodox Christmas

Holidays this year will be eventful in terms of football

The completed World Cup in Qatar, or rather the timing of its holding, made adjustments to European club football. By and large, the winter break, which lasted a month or a little more in some top championships, this year “left” for the World Cup. And if so, then the traditional boxing day for England – at least three rounds in two weeks – was joined by three other championships from the TOP-5 of Europe: the Spanish La Liga, the French Ligue 1 and the Italian Serie. Of course, with their own characteristics. But on the other hand, fans will definitely not be bored without football during the New Year holidays.

La Liga

In the period from December 29 to January 9, two rounds will be played in the Example. The 15th will be held from December 29-31, the 16th – from January 6 to 9. Let’s take a look at some interesting matches. On New Year’s Eve, December 31st, we will be pleased with the Catalan derby Barcelona – Espanyol. On Christmas Eve there will be a match between Villarreal and Real Madrid, and the next day the match between Atlético Madrid and Barcelona.

Serie A

The Italian championship will resume after the New Year – January 4. And in six days, two rounds will be played in Serie A. On January 4, first of all, it will be interesting to watch the face-to-face match between the two most Ukrainian teams of the Italian championship La Spezia and Atalanta, as well as the meeting between Napoli and Inter. January 8 will be a bright match Juventus – Roma.

League 1

The French Championship, which resumes on January 28, decided to surprise with intensity – two rounds in six days. And he prepared a New Year’s gift: a meeting of leaders – Lens – PSG – on January 1.

Premier League

Traditionally, the Premier League team has the busiest schedule, although a little easier than it could be – three rounds in 11 days. The Premier League will resume on Monday, December 26th. Bright matches – traditionally a lot. As part of the 17th round, we highlight the London derby between Arsenal and West Ham (December 26). In the next – a meeting between Manchester City and Everton (December 31), well, the cherry on the cake – a match between Chelsea and the same Man City in the 19th round (January 5).
