SuperSport viewers on DStv and GOtv will be treated to some fast and fierce football from the SkyBet English Football League Championship this coming weekend, with three matches live on the weekend of 20-21 June 2020.
SuperSport is your home of football and the best place to see all the action from around the world as #LiveSportReturns.
The Championship is widely regarded as one of the most entertaining and unpredictable leagues around Europe, with its marathon nature (there are no less than 24 teams) and breakneck speed making for incredible football entertainment.
The first of two live Championship matches for SuperSport viewers to enjoy this weekend arrives early on Saturday afternoon when Fulham host Brentford at Craven Cottage for a London derby between two promotion hopefuls.
The Cottagers come into the clash placed third on the log, while the Bees are four points back in fourth spot – both look likely to qualify for the promotion playoffs, though defeat in this clash would represent a stuttering return from the lockdown.
The next Championship match available to SuperSport viewers is later the same afternoon, with West Bromwich Albion at home to Birmingham City. The Baggies will look to make the most of home advantage at The Hawthorns, with a draw or win enough to take them to the top of the log.
And the good news for viewers on DStv and GOtv is that these two teams have produced five-goals thrillers – both win 3-2 by West Brom – in their last two Championship meetings, so hopefully a hat-trick of brilliant games between the Baggies and the Blues is on the cards.
The third and final Championship match available to SuperSport viewers arrives early on Sunday afternoon as Leeds United head to the Welsh capital to take on Cardiff City. The Whites have fought hard through the last two seasons to earn promotion and must have been worried through the lockdown that their hard work to sit in pole position may have gone to waste.
Fortunately for manager Marcelo Bielsa and his side, the chance to gain promotion back to the top flight has been revived by the return of football and they will be itching to overcome the Bluebirds and take one step closer to an automatic berth in next season’s Premier League.
However, Leeds have not beaten Cardiff since September 2016 and will be wary of the Welsh side after playing out a thrilling 3-3 draw at Elland Road back in December 2019.
