look at what’s happening in European soccer on Sunday:
Real Madrid hosts Real Sociedad with Jude Bellingham leading the Spanish league with five goals since the 20-year-old England midfielder joined the club. Madrid will still be without the injured Vinícius Júnior. Madrid opens its Champions League group stage against Union Berlin on Wednesday at home. Madrid has won all four games it has played and entered the round as the league leader. Sociedad’s Japan forward Takefusa Kubo has scored three goals this campaign. Villarreal’s new coach Jose “Pacheta” Martín debuts at home against Almeria after he replaced the fired Quique Setién. Sevilla hosts Las Palmas whose team had to make the trip from the Canary Islands in two separate flights after the club said 15 players missed the first flight. Osasuna is at Getafe.
Everton, which is set to come under new ownership, has a chance to get out of the relegation zone of the Premier League when it faces undefeated Arsenal at Goodison Park. It’s not an easy task. The Gunners rallied to beat Manchester United 3-1 in their last game. Bournemouth hosts Chelsea in the early game with both clubs struggling so far this season.
Roma is still searching for its first win of the season and it hosts newly promoted Empoli, which has lost its opening three matches back in Serie A. Roma has just one point. Roma coach Jose Mourinho confirmed that Romelu Lukaku and Paulo Dybala will both start, with the two strikers playing together for the first time. Promoted Cagliari also has just one point and Claudio Ranieri’s side hosts Udinese. Lecce, which is surprisingly fourth, can move level with second-place Juventus with a win at Monza. Atalanta is a point behind Lecce and visits Fiorentina. Frosinone hosts Sassuolo.
Three of the four teams in Bundesliga action haven’t yet won a game this season. Borussia Monchengladbach plays at last-place Darmstadt with both teams winless. Heidenheim, which also has yet to win a league game, hosts midtable Werder Bremen in the day’s other match.
Unbeaten Monaco looks to strengthen its lead with victory at midtable Lorient. Monaco has been scoring freely so far this season under coach Adi Hütter, with 13 goals in the first four matches. Marseille is also unbeaten and can jump to at least second place with a home win against Toulouse at Stade Velodrome, which has been hosting Rugby World Cup matches. Also, struggling Lyon desperately needs a home win against promoted Le Havre.
Bournemouth are yet to win a Premier League game this season, but they came incredibly close last time out away at Brentford. The sides went in level at half-time before David Brooks' 77th-minute tap-in had the traveling fans getting ready to celebrate – but Bryan Mbeumo had other ideas. The Brentford forward struck in stoppage time to ensure the points were shared instead, so the Cherries will be hoping they can go one better when they host Chelsea today.
The Blues' lacklustre start to the season continued as they were beaten at home by Notting Forest in their last game before the international break. It's a result that leaves the Premier League's big spenders with just one win in four games – a start that no doubt puts new manager Mauricio Pochettino under quite some pressure.
The Blues have won just once in the league this season, but travel to a ground where they won last season. May’s win at the Vitality Stadium was Frank Lampard’s only victory during his spell in interim charge of the club, with the 3-1 victory for Chelsea unable to prevent a bottom-half finish.
Now, Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping for similar luck in his first trip to Bournemouth since departing as Tottenham manager in 2019. His side lost 1-0 at home to Nottingham Forest last time out and his side currently reside in the bottom-half of the league table despite another high-spending summer.
They will, however, be buoyed by the challenge facing them, with a winless Bournemouth side currently hovering above the relegation zone. Andoni Iraola has arrived as a promising manager from La Liga, in the mould of Mauricio Pochettino’s appointment at Southampton in 2013, but has yet to see the results of his improved style of play.
While it has been a tough start for Chelsea, performances have improved, with Raheem Sterling in particular demonstrating his quality. British-record signing Moises Caicedo will also hope to develop his partnership with Enzo Fernandez as they began to show promise in their partnership against Forest.
