FC Barcelona is enjoying a dream season in La Liga, and has left Real Madrid in the dust in the title chase, but there is one team that hasn’t quite lost sight of Barca in the standings.
Atletico Madrid sits just six point behind Barcelona in the Spanish League standings, and if they want any chance of catching Lionel Messi and Co., they must win this weekend. Making that task tougher is the fact Atletico could be without Radamel Falcao, who is nursing an injury.
In Serie A, second-place Inter Milan faces fourth-place Lazio in what should be an exciting affair. Inter is four points behind leader Juventus and need a win against the Roman side to stay without touching distance. Lazio can pull into third place with a victory and a Napoli loss.
In England, Everton will look to continue their outstanding start to the season going with a win against a streaking Stoke City side. The Potters are unbeaten in six matches, but they face a tough test against an Everton side that has just one loss in their past 13 matches.
If you are willing to wake up very early, or stay up very late, you could watch the Club World Cup Final, where Chelsea takes on Brazilian side Corinthians in what should be an interesting encounter.
