This weekend's Soccer on TV: Easter Edition

It is going to be one of those holidays. You know the ones, where you have to find some very good excuses to score the necessary two to four hours of TV time to watch some marquee soccer action. Your family commitments are going to keep you busy but where there’s a will, there’s a way to still catch the can’t-miss match (or matches).

Easter Sunday offers just that as the English Premier League’s Big Four squares off in two mouth-watering encounters. Liverpool travels to red-hot Manchester United while Arsenal look to regain the top spot in the EPL by beating Chelsea in Stamford Bridge (which isn’t exactly easy).

So what are the Top Five matches on TV this weekend? Here are the SBI Five Matches to Watch:

  • Liverpool at Manchester United. Can Man U stop Torres? Can Liverpool even tough Cristiano Ronaldo?
  • Arsenal at Chelsea. Expect a fiesty affair as the Blues look to move into the second spot in the standings.
  • Juventus at Inter Milan. Inter can throw more dirt on Roma’s title chase with a win here while Juventus will look to send a message for next season.
  • Atletico Madrid at Sevila. A Champions League place is on the line between two teams battling for fourth place in La Liga.
  • Fulham at Newcastle. You think a relegation battle isn’t worth watching? Think again. This one will be a real battle.

You know it’s a good slate of games when the CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying final between the USA and Honduras doesn’t make the cut, but that’s also because the game isn’t that meaningful and top players will likely be rested.

Here is the schedule for this weekend’s soccer action on TV. Enjoy:
