Violence Mars Ghana Win, Merseyside Derby, Madrid Derby, North London Derby, Sid Lowe on Bale

Shit hits the fan.

And a very pleasant Friday to you! Not so pleasant in Equatorial Guinea, where Ghanian fans were attacked by the host country's fans during Ghana's 3-0 win. Good grief. Ghana will now face Ivory Coast in Sunday's African Cup of Nations final. Nick Ames was at Nuevo Estadío de Malabo and filed this report.

Let's move away from that sad nonsense and focus on the positives of the weekend. Derbies. Rock and Roll! Off to the Premier League we go...

Tottenham vs. Arsenal: Preview
Tottenham vs. Arsenal: Five Questions
Everton vs. Liverpool: Preview

Over in Madrid, Gareth Bale's been getting stick from the fans. Sid Lowe claims that the Bernabéu booing is not as deafening as the debate that has followed. Bale's Real face Atlético tomorrow, and Guillem Balague reckons Atlético are the favorites. It's certainly a must-win for them. Here's a preview of the match (10:00 a.m. EST on beIN Sport USA). Sticking with Spain, how about Top Five Madrid Derbies? Eh? Eh?

Over to Germany. Bundesliga Weekend Preview. Can Wolfsburg challenge Bayern for the title?!

Chelsea nabbed Juan Quadrado from Fiorentina during the window. Let's take a closer look at the Colombian, shall we?

Over in France, in Ligue Uhhhhhhhhhh, it's first vs. second as Lyon host PSG. Beware The Zlatan!

Serie A. Italia. Calcio. Weekend Preview? Done and Done

That'll do it for the week, Peeps! We'll see you Monday with all the fallout from the weekend's action.
