Cesar Azpilicueta's Netflix recommendations

Looking for a final binge before the lockdown in England is lifted this week? Cesar Azpilicueta has got you covered…

The nationwide Covid-19 restrictions are set to be eased after midnight on Wednesday, but for the next few days people are still stuck at home. On the plus side, that’s just about enough time to squeeze in one more boxset.

We asked the Spaniard for his recommendations for top viewing on Netflix to fill the gap…

Money Heist

A popular choice among the Chelsea squad, this crime drama – which is set in Azpi’s native tongue but dubbed in English – is the second most popular foreign-language series on Netflix, and you’ve got three seasons to get stuck into.

With millions of Euros and their lives on the line, nine robbers attempt to pull off the greatest heist of all time. Or second greatest, if you count the Barcelona game at the Bridge in 2009.

The Last Dance

Switch off The Queen’s Gambit for a moment and give this a watch if you haven’t seen it already.

The Last Dance charts the spectacular career of NBA superstar Michael Jordan and his all-conquering Chicago Bulls team of the 90s. Featuring never-seen-before footage, the series provides a fascinating account of one of the most high-performing sports outfits in history and in Jordan – an unfiltered window into the life and career of perhaps the most iconic athlete of all time.

The eccentricities of Dennis Rodman, alongside the undervalued Scottie Pippen, make for interesting sub-plots.

Peaky Blinders

Azpi’s final recommendation is a must watch, by order of the Peaky Blinders.  

In this gripping period crime drama, we follow the exploits of the notorious Shelby family in the aftermath of the First World War.

Set in Birmingham, UK in 1919, the fierce and highly ambitious Thomas Shelby leads the Peaky Blinders as they try to work their way up in the criminal underworld.
