MANCHESTER UNITED v MANCHESTER CITY – A draw 2-2
Reds are better than some critics think, Pogba has hit form and this should be an attacking derby to savour.
REAL MADRID v ATLETICO MADRID – Atletico to win 2-1
Derbies don’t come tastier than this, and go with on-song Atletico to continue shaking La Liga’s old order.
KING’S LYNN v TORQUAY UNITED – Gulls to win 3-2
A testing afternoon in Norfolk guaranteed, but United have the know-how and firepower to handle it.
WOKING v HARTLEPOOL UNITED – A draw 1-1
Pools better away than home, will batten down the hatches and can frustrate hot-and-cold Woking.
CHESTERFIELD v BARNET – Chesterfield to win 2-0
Both struggling, but Spireites under new boss James Rowe will have too much for Barnet’s leaky defence.
