EUROPO MATCHDAY: Arsenal hosts Fulham, PSG plays Lens

A look at the Saturday soccer action in Europe:

ENGLAND.

When they host Fulham and West Ham, respectively, Arsenal and Brighton aim to win three games in a row to start the Premier League season. Even though Brighton has grown into a more formidable force under the shrewd leadership of Roberto De Zerbi, Arsenal is still expected to be among the title contenders. Even though Alexis Mac Allister and Moises Caicedo, two central midfielders for Brighton, left this summer, they still managed to score four goals in each of their two victories. Going into a home game against Wolverhampton, who have also lost their first two games, Everton has no points and no goals. With three points, Manchester United has struggled as it prepares to host Nottingham Forest, while Brentford hosts Crystal Palace and Tottenham visits Bournemouth.

ITALY.

Christian Pulisic will be hoping for more of the same in his first game at San Siro, when AC Milan hosts Torino, after a goal-scoring debut last week. Previously suspended Yunus Musah, a fellow international for the United States, might make his playing debut. Jose Mourinho’s team will be hoping for improvement at Hellas Verona after Roma needed a late goal to salvage a draw against Salernitana last weekend. The recently promoted Frosinone team lost its opening game back in Serie A to the reigning champion Napoli, and it will face another challenging test against Atalanta. With their first victories and goals, Monza and Empoli square off against one another.

GERMANY.

Before Borussia Mönchengladbach hosts Bayer Leverkusen for the final Bundesliga match, Borussia Dortmund travels to Bochum for a derby match. Dortmund, which had a lucky league debut with a victory last weekend, will be hoping to do better in Bochum after failing to score on either of its previous two trips, which ended in 1-1 draws. In addition, Bochum needs to make amends for its weekend 5-0 defeat at Stuttgart. Leverkusen, on the other hand, is fired up after winning their opening match 3-2 over Leipzig, and they’ll be looking to exploit Gladbach’s feeble defense. Additionally, Union Berlin travels to newly-promoted Darmstadt, Wolfsburg is welcomed in Cologne, Werder Bremen travels to Freiburg, and Heidenheim hosts Hoffenheim for its first-ever home match in the Bundesliga.

FRANCE.

The defending champion Paris Saint-Germain may be forced to play without new forward Gonzalo Ramos against Lens because they have just two points in as many games and are still searching for their first league victory of the year. Ramos is reportedly dealing with a minor muscular issue that may prevent him from playing against the runners-up from the previous season, according to PSG, who have significantly changed their roster over the offseason. Ramos, who was brought in from Benfica and was supposed to play up front alongside Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele, has yet to score for his new team. With just one point, Lens has also had a sluggish start and will probably start striker Elye Wahi against PSG. Last season, Wahi led Montpellier with 19 goals. Marseille will play Brest in the other game on Saturday.

SPAIN.

After losing to Manchester City in the UEFA Super Cup and both of its games in the Spanish league, Sevilla welcomes Girona in search of its first victory of the year. In contrast to Granada, which is winless, Almeria is at Cadiz after also dropping both of its opening matches.
