This Weekend's Soccer on TV

Getafe have become giant killers in Spain, and after already making one of the country's two superpowers an early victim in 2012, they have their sights set on the other.

Barcelona, playing without the injured Andres Iniesta and Jordi Alba, will aim to avoid suffering the same fate as Real Madrid did a few weeks ago when squaring off against the Spanish underdog Saturday. Losing at Getafe is nothing new for Barcelona, which fell to them 1-0 in one of two meetings last year.

Elsewhere around the world, Queens Park Rangers and Chelsea clash in West London with the side plot of the personal feud between John Terry and Anton Ferdinand lingering over the matchup; Stoke City's U.S. internationals Geoff Cameron and Maurice Edu get a crack at Premier League champions Manchester City; and Bayern Munich looks to continue its perfect start to the Bundesliga campaign against a Mainz 05 side that is winless after the first two matches of the season. Some of the biggest names in South America square off against each other as well, as the Velez Sarsfield-River Plate clash in Argentina highlights Sunday evening's slate.

In MLS, playoff implications are at stake across the league landscape, as the Kansas City-Houston, Chicago-Montreal, Dallas-Vancouver and New York-Columbus games all carry a great deal of significance for teams in the postseason hunt. The most anticipated MLS match of the weekend, though, takes place in Portland, where the Timbers and Seattle Sounders look to settle the Cascadia Cup on NBC's flagship network.
