Barcelona have a chance to move seven points clear of arch-rival Real Madrid when the two meet in today’s El Clasico encounter.
The Catalan side hold a four-point lead over Real Madrid and remain undefeated in the 2014 La Liga season, but Carlo Ancelotti’s side are feeling confident, especially with new signings Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez settling in. The game could also see history as Lionel Messi sits only one goal behind Telmo Zarra’s La Liga goalscoring record of 251 goals, and the match could be stopped to honor Messi if he breaks the record.
Both Liverpool and Manchester City look to rebound from disappointing mid-week performances in the UEFA Champions League, with Man City visiting West Ham in the lunchtime kickoff and Liverpool hosting Hull City. Arsenal meanwhile visit Jozy Altidore and Sunderland.
Elsewhere in action on Saturday, Bayer Leverkusen face Schalke 04, the Seattle Sounders and LA Galaxy battle for the Supporters Shield, and in Mexico, the Clasico Regiomontano takes place with Monterrey hosting Tigres UANL.
