Preview: PSG return to action in Ligue 1 on Friday with an interesting trip to Nice. The Ligue 1 champions have won their last three games but will be without key attacker Neymar for this clash after the Brazilian picked up a thigh injury during the international break. The Selecao ace has been their star player this season despite falling out with the fans over his attempts to leave and could thus be missed.

Preview: Man City head into this tie on the back of their 2-0 loss to Wolves in the league. That result left them eight points behind league leaders Liverpool, with many believing the title race to have already ended. Next up for Guardiola's side is a trip to Crystal Palace. This should be a tricky trip given that the Eagles have the third-best defense in the league, with only Sheffield, Leicester, and Liverpool conceding fewer goals. Nonetheless, this is a must-win tie for the Citizens.

Preview: This is the game before El Clasico for Barcelona. The reigning champions have won their last three Spanish Primera Division games to climb to second in the standings after a rough start to the campaign. Unfortunately for Valverde's side, they will be without Ousmane Dembele who is suspended after his sending-off in the game against Sevilla.
Fortunately, Messi opened his goalscoring account in that game after returning to fitness, scoring a lovely free-kick strike. Since then, he has been awarded his Golden Boot from last season and will be keen to score a few more.

Preview: Juventus are back on top in the standings after their 2-1 win over Inter Milan prior to the international break. The Bianconeri now sit a point above their rivals and will thus be keen on avoiding dropping points on Saturday. Cristiano should be at Sarri's disposal after reaching the amazing feat that is scoring his 700th career goal.

Man Utd vs Liverpool at 11:30 ET/15:30 GMT

Preview: This is the game everyone eagerly anticipated. Man United and Liverpool will reignite their rivalry on Sunday when England's two most successful teams lock horns at Old Trafford. Form does not favor Solskjaer's crew as they are without a win in their last three league games. With Pogba and De Gea both being injured, no one fancies the home side winning.
Pogba and De Gea have been ruled out of Sunday's game
As for the Merseyside giants, they continue to boast a perfect record. Eight wins out of eight is their record this season. Van Dijk and Co. boast the best defense in the top-flight and have the second-best attack in the Premier League, which makes for an unfortunate read for Man Utd.
