Manchester Derby EFL Cup Semi headlines This Week's Soccer on TV (and top 5 matches to watch)

By

Knowing it needs to make up ground in a hurry, Manchester City finally resembled the team it is expected to be in Sunday’s 3-1 win over Chelsea, with the latter’s goal coming as a mere consolation prize in the contest.

After having to recently postpone a match with Everton and even pausing training briefly last week, the win is even more impressive.

That should serve the team well, because they have their first high-stakes matchup of the new year on Wednesday, because a spot in the EFL league Cup Final is on the line and what’s more, is that they’ll be looking to go through bitter rival Manchester United.

The Red Devils come in on a tear of their own, unbeaten in each of their last seven competitions since their infamous Champions League exit at the hands of RB Leipzig last month. As of this writing, they’re tied with the defending champions of the Premier League Liverpool in the current title race, which is exceeding the expectations of many across the globe.

Here is a look at This Week’s Top 5 Matches to Watch, along with a full rundown of the soccer viewing options available this weekend:

Top 5 Matches to Watch

  1. Manchester United vs Manchester City – Manchester United boss needs Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to win something. Anything. His team is flying is high as it has under him, but City is still City, and the meeting will be a true test of each other’s mettle.
  2. AC Milan vs Juventus – The teams have seemingly swapped roles ahead of this one. Milan, leaders of the Serie A table, and Juve, currently sitting in fifth. The latter opened up the new year with a brace from Cristiano Ronaldo, and look to be ready to get back to taking care of business in the campaign.
  3. Southampton vs Liverpool – The hosts remain in the top half of the Premier League table 18 weeks in. However unlikely, they could create some serious drama with an upset.
  4. Boca Juniors vs Santos – Leg 1 of the Copa Libertadores semi-finals, what’s not to love? Carlos Tevez will be looking to lead Boca to another piece of hardware in the twilight of his career.
  5. River Plate vs Palmeiras – The other side of the Copa Libertadores semifinal bracket. River Plate was unable to cash in on some late momentum in league play against Boca on Saturday and will be looking to make this one a squash match to set itself up for some retribution.
