Few teams have been able to find a way to stop Real Madrid, but one team that has consistent success in stopping them this season has been arch-rival Atletico Madrid.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side got the better of Diego Simeone’s men in last year’s UEFA Champions League final, but Atletico has had its way with Real Madrid in this season’s meetings. Something Real Madrid will look to halt when the sides meet at the Bernabeu.

The Madrid derby is just one of several rivalry matches headlining a stacked rivalry weekend. In England, the Merseyside Derby is back, with Everton trying to halt a Liverpool side unbeaten in eight league matches. In London, bitter rivals Arsenal and Tottenham renew acquaintances at White Hart Lane, with Harry Kane looking to work his magic against a Gunners side led by Alexis Sanchez.

The high-profile match continue in Italy, where Juventus hosts AC Milan. It’s been almost three years since a meeting between the teams ended in a draw.

Cruz Azul hopes to stay unbeaten when they host Moterrey in Liga MX action. Monterrey sealed a 3-1 win last time they met, though Cruz Azul has won six of the last 11 meetings.

    • Since I don’t have cable, will any Spanish broadcaster stream the US vs Panama game on the internet or do I have to go to a sports pub to see this game?

  2. Apart from all the craziness around the host nation, this has been a fun African Cup of Nations. Really looking forward to the final.

    • Should be a very interesting final especially if they play it in less than an hour as this Soccer on TV article suggestions will do:

      2 p.m. – beIN Sports USA – African Cup of Nations Final

      3 p.m. – beIN Sports USA – Lyon vs. PSG

    • Considering that Ghana is poised to be either the best or second best team in Africa and won their semifinal 3-0, the US victory over them in the WC looks better all the time.
