Storied rivalries in Spain and England grab the spotlight in the best of the weekend’s soccer on TV.

A potential La Liga title-deciding clash rounds out the weekend action in Europe when Barcelona hosts Real Madrid on Sunday. The Catalan club can extend its lead at the top of the standings to four points with a win in El Clasico, but Los Blancos can take back first place with a victory of their own.

Earlier that day, the battle for UEFA Champions League places in England receives a twist when Liverpool and Manchester United meet at Anfield. The Red Devils currently sit in fourth place, just two points ahead of their Northwest rivals in the English Premier League.

In Italy, a sputtering AC Milan faces relegation-threatened Cagliari. Milan has one win from its last five games, but that run could improve against a Cagliari team that has failed to win since January.

Tijuana tries to extend its lead at the top of Liga MX and its streak of nine league games without a loss against Cruz Azul. After a flying start to the season, La Maquina has failed to win in the last four outings and slipped to sixth in the standings.

In MLS, the New York Red Bulls open their home slate of games against Eastern Conference rivals D.C. United. The Chicago Fire hope to grab a first win of the season with a trip out west to face San Jose Earthquakes, who will be officially opening their new Avaya Stadium.

  2. FRIDAY
    3:30 p.m. — GolTV USA — Hamburg vs. Hertha Berlin

    Green vs. Brooks! The FOX takeover of Budesliga rights can’t come soon enough. Stupid Verizon doesn’t include GolTV with their Sports package, only with their Spanish Language package.
