As usual, El-Classico always proves to be a very competitive and exciting game. As such, we're expecting nothing less than that.

As things stand now, Real Madrid seems to be the favorites to emerge victorious as they're in excellent form. However, a victory for Barca can't be ruled out especially when they're playing in front of their fans.

Liverpool is currently the only team that has not experienced a defeat in the Premier League, as such, we expect them to put up a good fight against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men come this day.

Marseille vs Paris Saint-Germain

Another big match scheduled to be played on the 24th of October is the Ligue 1 game between league leaders Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille at Orange Vélodrome.

As usual, games between these two teams are always action-packed, as such, we expect this one to be nothing less than that.

Though PSG looks like the favorites to win this game on paper, a surprise win for Marseille isn't ruled out.

Inter Milan vs Juventus

Serie A defending champions Inter Milan will also be going up against Juventus on the 24th of October.

The game promises to be an exciting one as it involves two quality sides. Though Juventus didn't start the season quite well, they seem to have gotten their form back as they've won 3 consecutive games.

As for Inter Milan, they're really on a good run. They currently sit in 2nd place in the league table after 7 points.

It surely will be an exciting fixture come October 24th.
