With winter breaks now completed, La Liga, Serie A, and Liga MX have turned the calendar to 2013, with all leagues now returning to action.
The third round of the FA Cup has kicked off the year for the English clubs, as the weekend closes out with Swansea City taking on Arsenal, and Mansfield Town hosting Liverpool.
Meanwhile, in league play, Lionel Messi and Barcelona will look to build on their tremendous run to the opening half of the season, closing out a historical run for both Messi and his scoring record to the 49 point output in 17 games for the club. At 16 points behind, Real Madrid will continue to hold onto their slim hopes of defending their La Liga title as they host Real Sociedad.
After a brief trip to Florida, Michael Bradley and Roma return to Serie A play as they travel to San Paolo Stadium to take on Napoli, while league-leading Juventus hosts Sampdoria.
