5 Sports Matches You Need To Watch This Weekend

Sports matches this weekend 17 April

MenStuff gives you the low-down on all the big sporting clashes this weekend that you can’t afford to miss.

It’s weekend, and that means that the sporting fixture list is packed full of some epic encounters taking place over the next few days, and we got you covered with which clashes you’ve got to keep your eyes on.

Ajax Cape Town vs University of Pretoria

Friday, 20:00

The Kaizer Chiefs pretty-much have the title in the bag, but that doesn’t mean there’s not some exciting action taking place in the Absa Premiership. Ajax Cape Town want to secure a top-eight finish and beating the University of Pretoria in the League at the Cape Town Stadium on Friday night is top of mind. This should be an exciting match-up.

Hurricanes vs Waratahs

Saturday, 06:30

Arguably the two best teams in the Super Rugby competition go head-to-head on Saturday morning – it’s early – but will be worth getting up for. The Hurricanes are on a massive winning-streak and the Waratahs fell to the Stormers last week, but they’re both title contenders this year and will throw everything they’ve got at one another.

Sharks vs Bulls

Saturday, 17:05

With the South African conference still wide-open, the encounter between the Sharks and Bulls should prove to be an exciting one. A majority of the teams’ respective Springboks are making their return, adding to the intensity of the match, which Bulls coach Frans Ludeke is calling their “toughest assignment this year.”

Chelsea vs Man United

Saturday, 18:30

Chelsea will face an in-form Manchester United as they try to move one step closer to the Premier League title at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Chelsea need just 12 points from their seven remaining matches to win their first league title since 2010 and while a defeat on Saturday wouldn’t spell the end of their challenge, it would give the chasing pack a glimmer of hope.

RBC Heritage (PGA Tour)

And for the golfing fans out there, we get the RBC Heritage play-off this weekend, following on from a brilliant Masters tournament last week. American Matt Every and Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell set the pace in the opening round in South Carolina, and it’s looking to heat up as the weekend progresses.

    It’s good to see Chelsea are finally making the MenStuff top 3. This game is going to be a cracker!!!!!! United have some how pulled themselves together and hit some good form. I think the Reds will definitely feel as if this game is winnable. Chelsea haven’t been playing the vintage Chelsea style of football that people have gotten used to in recent times. They haven’t really hit their stride In the last part of the season but have eaked out wins against opponents who are up against the ropes. Knowing Mourinho he will want to win this one just to get closer to winning the title before the end of the season. He’s definitely not the type of manager who can wait until the last day. Key players for Chelsea are going to be Matic, Fabregas and Hazard (quite obvious). All are up for the pfa player of the year award and quite rightly so. Mata, Rooney and Fellaini are playing really cohesively and so it will be important to shut these players down.

      I’m holding thumbs for a Chelsea win. Mourinho won’t want to give anything away at the bridge, especially to United.
