SuperSport viewers on DStv can look forward to a classic Italian rivalry as Serie A heavyweights Napoli and Internazionale meet at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona on Sunday 18 April 2021.

The teams have very different overall ambitions heading into this clash: Inter are looking to move a step closer to a first Serie A title in more than a decade, while Napoli are in a scrap for a berth in next season’s UEFA Champions League with Milan, Atalanta, Juventus, Lazio and Roma.

The Nerazzurri boss Antonio Conte knows that the Scudetto is close for his team but has warned against complacency in this final stretch of the season.

“We know full well that Serie A is very difficult, and every match is a battle to get the victory. The closer we get to the finish line, the clearer we can see the prize at the end,” said Conte. “Everyone is looking at that direction and we see it from a different angle to the others right now, but we still have it all to do. We’ve achieved nothing yet.”

Napoli manager Gennaro Gattuso wants his side to keep their heads down and “think of one opponent at a time” as they focus on their goal of finishing in the top four of the standings. The Neapolitans boss has come under fire from many quarters this season, but a Champions League qualification amidst such tough competition would be a fine achievement. Don’t miss it, Sunday at 6:45pm, LIVE on SuperSport Football, SuperSport Maximo 2.

Ghanaian Jonathan Mensah is rarely mentioned when the top foreign-based African footballers are discussed, but the veteran defender has become a legend with Major League Soccer (MLS) reigning champions Columbus Crew. 

Viewers on DStv can look forward to seeing the Black Stars centre-back in action, as ESPN brings live action from the 2021-22 MLS season this coming week, Friday 16 to Thursday 22 April 2021.

Mensah has been on Crew’s books since 2017, having previously featured for AshantiGold, Free State Stars, Udinese, Granada, Evian and Anzhi Makhachkala.

The 30-year-old, who won the African Youth Championships and U-20 World Cup with Ghana in 2009 and has been part of six Africa Cup of Nations squads and two World Cup squads with the Black Stars, has made over 100 appearances for Columbus and last season led them to the MLS Cup title.

For the 2021-22 season, Mensah wants to see the MLS Cup remain in Ohio: “We have the same goal to win the ultimate. Pre-season is always tough but we take it day by day and prepare for the first game and the second and we go on and approach the season very strong.”

Viewers on DStv and GOtv can see Mensah in action on the evening of Sunday 18 April when Crew play host to Philadelphia Union. Being back in action will hopefully bring the defender back into contention for selection to the Ghana national team, having not had a call-up since the 2019 AFCON. See Jonathan Mensah in the following match live on ESPN, Sunday at

9:55pm: MLS, Columbus Crew v Philadelphia Union – LIVE on ESPN Ch 219 and 218.
