Five separate leagues will host highly anticipated soccer matchups next week, with the Premier League welcoming the most expensive match in the North London Derby between Tottenham and Arsenal on Saturday, February 7. A Serie A matchup between Juventus and Milan will also take place on Saturday and serve as the second most expensive game this week. Liga BBVA, Ligue 1 and Bundesliga will also broadcast big-name games in the coming days.
In what is perhaps the most heated rivalry in the country, Tottenham and Arsenal will play a match at White Hart Lane on February 7. According to European ticket reseller Ticketbis, the game will be the most expensive matchup of the week on the secondary market, where the average price for Tottenham vs Arsenal tickets is 249 pounds ($377.68). Tottenham has played well over the last several weeks with young striker Christian Eriksen leading the charge, posting eight goals and creating 51 chances in 22 Premier League matches this season.
Serie A will welcome the second most expensive match this week when first-place Juventus and Milan face off at Juventus Stadium on Saturday night. The average price for Juventus vs Milan tickets is 124.48€ ($141.41) on the secondary market. Juventus star Paul Pogba will look to continue his hot streak after scoring in each of his last four matches. Juventus leads Serie A with 49 points on the season and will likely cruise past 10th-place Milan when they meet in Turin this weekend.
The Atletico and Real Madrid will battle at Vicente Calderon Stadium next Saturday, which will be the third most expensive game of the week. The Liga BBVA match will see its cheapest price listed at 94.54€ ($107.40). In what is known as the Madrid Derby, Atletico recently defeated Real and advanced to the semifinals of the King’s Cup Tournament, but were defeated yesterday against Barcelona. The February 7 game will be extremely important for both sides, as Real Madrid risks losing its first-place position to Barcelona if Barcelona secures a win in their next Liga matchup. Atletico is currently in 3rd place three points behind Barcelona.
Ligue 1 welcomes a game between Olympique Lyon and PSG and will be the final pivotal game next Saturday will offer. Fans can get in to the game for as low as 63.13€ ($71.72). PSG owns one of the best defenses in professional soccer, with a starting line of Tiago Silva, David Luiz and Lucas Moura playing alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic, one of the most dangerous strikers around. Olympique Lyon has won its last 10 Ligue 1 games, matching the club’s record of consecutive victories. Lyon leads Ligue 1 with 48 points this season while PSG sits in third with 44.
The final game to watch for will be a Bundesliga matchup between Bayern and Schalke on Wednesday, February 3. Thus far into the season, Bayern is undefeated and owns 14 wins and three draws compared to Schalke’s eight wins, three draws and six losses. Secondary tickets are selling for 54€ ($61.34), making Wednesday’s game the cheapest among big games over the next week-and-a-half. Though considered an underdog, Schalke will play with Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, who is considered a top scorer and poses a major threat to Bayern’s win streak. The two clubs tied in their last Bundesliga matchup, splitting two goals last August.
