SuperSport's got you covered in October!

The month of October promises frighteningly fantastic football action, and SuperSport together with Kick Off will be there with you to catch all the action.

From the MTN8 final locally to key matches in Europe, including the Serie A titan clash, the UEFA Champions League, and the English Premier League top six battle, this month promises to be nothing short of spectacular. 

MTN8 Final - Highlands Park vs SuperSport United

Saturday 5 October

SS4 (SA), SS10 & SS9 (ROA) Kickoff at 18:00 (CAT)

The PSL season’s first piece of silverware will be up for grabs when Orlando Stadium plays host to the MTN 8 final. This is the third time in a row that Matsatsantsa have played in the final (winners in 2017 and runners-up in 2018) while Highlands Park will be playing in their first ever major final.

LaLiga - Barcelona vs Sevilla

Sunday 6 October

SS7 Kickoff at 21:00 (CAT)

After a mixed start to the season, Barcelona will be looking to assert themselves in this season’s La Liga title race when they host Sevilla who are coming off back-to-back defeats. Lionel Messi has scored 36 goals in all competitions against Sevilla – the most he’s scored against a single club.

Serie A - Inter Milan vs Juventus

Sunday 6 October

SS9 (SA) & SS8 (ROA) Kickoff at 20:45 (CAT)

It’s a battle between the top two in Serie A with Inter Milan going into the game with a 2-point lead after winning their first 6 league matches. Inter manager Antonio Conte won three successive league titles with Juventus and this will be the first time he’s faced them since leaving the club in 2014.

Premier League - Manchester United vs Liverpool

Sunday 20 October

SS3 Kickoff at 17:30 (CAT)

Liverpool have won their last 16 Premier League matches – two short of the record winning streak set by Manchester City in 2017. If the Reds beat Leicester in the first weekend of October, they’ll have the chance to equal the Citizens’ record two weeks later at Old Trafford, where their old rivals will relish the opportunity to end such a run.

UEFA Champions League - Ajax Amsterdam vs Chelsea

Wednesday 23 October

SS3 (SA) & SS5 (ROA) Kickoff at 18:55 (CAT)

Both former tournament winners, this will be the first time the two clubs have met in European competition. Ajax’s young team endeared themselves to many with an inspired run to the semi-finals last season. In this clash, they’ll come up against a Chelsea side that also has a youthful look to it under the tutelage Frank Lampard, who is in his first Champions League campaign as a manager.

UEFA Champions League - Inter Milan vs Borussia Dortmund

Wednesday 23 October

SS6 (SA) & SS3 (ROA) Kickoff at 21:00 (CAT)

This will be the first time that Inter Milan have faced German opponents in the UEFA Champions League since 2011 when they crashed out of the quarter-finals with a 7-3 aggregate loss against Schalke. This will be a key game for Dortmund who are looking to get out of the group stage for the second successive season.

LaLiga - Barcelona vs Real Madrid

Saturday 26 October

SS7 Kickoff at 13:00 (CAT)

It’s the game all football fans have to diarise. Real Madrid haven’t beaten Barcelona in their last six meetings in all competitions, including a humiliating 5-1 defeat in this fixture last season. This will be the first meeting between the Spanish giants since Zinedine Zidane’s return to Los Blancos, with the Frenchman boasting an unbeaten record at Camp Nou as a manager.

Absa Premiership - Mamelodi Sundowns vs Kaizer Chiefs

Sunday 27 October

SS4 (SA) & SS9 (ROA) Kickoff at 15:30(CAT)

A clash between Masandawana and the Glamour Boys always attracts plenty of attention from the local public, and this one is no exception with Chiefs starting the season promisingly and Sundowns not far behind. Amakhosi have had the better of this fixture recently with only one loss in their last five league meetings.

Premier League - Liverpool vs Tottenham

Sunday 27 October

This will be the first meeting between the sides since the UEFA Champions League final and if all goes to plan for Liverpool, this could be the game where they set a new Premier League record for most games won in a row. The Reds are currently on a 3-match winning run against Spurs, who have played two away matches against “big six” clubs this season with both ending in 2-2 draws.

Serie A - Roma vs AC Milan

Sunday 27 October

SS9 (SA) & SS8 (ROA) Kickoff at 18:50(CAT)

It’ll be a key Serie A match at the Stadio Olimpico with each club looking to assert themselves in the top four battle after both missed out on the UEFA Champions League spots last season. The Rossoneri have had the better of the fixture as of late with two wins and one draw in their last three matches against Roma.
