The five major European leagues will return to action this weekend following an international break which is dreaded by football fans across the globe.

The weekend starts with thrills from arguably the best league in the world, the English premier league, the Spanish la Liga, the German Bundesliga, the French Ligue 1 and the Italian Serie A.

Liverpool continue their hundred percent run to the start of the EPL as they seek to end a thirty-year league trophy drought. The current European champions face Newcastle on Saturday 14th September in an early 11:30 am encounter. Manchester City also faces Norwich away from home as they seek to retain the premier league trophy for three straight seasons.

In the Spanish la Liga, defending champions Barcelona will host Valencia as they hope to earn a second win in four games. Barcelona have been without their talisman Lionel Messi as he picked up a calf injury on the eve of the new campaign. Barcelona will rely on the return of striker Luis Suarez and Antoine Griezmann to get them the maximum three points they need in their title defense. Real Madrid also welcome Levante at the Santiago Bernabeu. However, the 13 times European champions will be without major signing Eden Hazard who is currently injured.

Juventus face Fiorentina on Saturday at 1 pm in the Italian Serie A and hope to stay on winning ways with the help of Cristiano Ronaldo who is in a fine form of scoring.

Paris Saint Germain will host Strasbourg at 3:30 on Saturday as they hope to defend their league title. New signing Mauro Icardi will be looking forward to get his debut and hopefully start scoring. Neymar Jr also returns from injury to boost the PSG squad ahead of their Saturday encounter.
