The English Premier League and the top European leagues have ended. But this August promises a lot of great battles that fans can wait for, because of its importance.
Brentford – Fulham (1:45, August 4): The match of hundred million pounds
Fulham will face Brentford in the play-off final – the most expensive match in the world – to compete for the last ticket to the Premier League arena in the 2020/21 season. In two semi-finals, Fulham defeated Cardiff while Brentford overcame Swansea with a score of 3-2 after two matches.
The winning team in this match not only won the promotion but also earned hundreds of millions of pounds. It includes TV royalties, shirt sponsorships, pitch ads, ticket sales and many other valuable revenues only in the Premier League.
This is the first time in Brentford history to attend a Premier League final. Meanwhile, Fulham has for many years left the most attractive tournament in the world. Therefore, both will certainly play very determinedly in the unforgiving battle at Wembley.
MU – LASK Linz (2h, 5/8, round of 1/8 Europa League round): “Red Devil” straight ahead
MU had won LASK 5-0 on the visitors in the first leg. Basically, the ticket to the quarterfinals of the Europa League has been in the “Reds” bag. And in this rematch, coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has the right to rotate the squad, keeping the strength of the pillars in the next round.
After making sure to attend the Champions League 2020/21, MU will be relieved of the psychological burden when attending the Europa League. Solskjaer’s team will only attend this tournament with the goal of winning the championship, without having to think too much about the goals for the European Cup next season.
According to the results of the Europa League branch draw on 10/7, in case of overcoming LASK, MU will meet the winning team in the Copenhagen – Istanbul Basaksehir match. If they continue to the semi-finals, MU’s opponent will be the team that continues in the Wolves / Olympiacos – Roma / Sevilla branch. It can be seen that MU’s branch is not too heavy, and they will probably go deep.
