Milan Derby headlines This Week’s Soccer on TV

The top two teams in the Serie A table were not afforded any breaks on the cup side ahead of the quarterfinal round of the Coppa Italia.

A domestic double is in play for the winner in Tuesday’s edition of the Milan Derby, and in addition to the stain of a 3-0 weekend loss to Atalanta, AC Milan has made life harder on itself with a bizarre, self-inflicted event.

In the Round of 16, AC Milan edged Torino in a nail-biter that was decided by a penalty shootout, and during the game starting goalkeeper Gigi Donnarumma’s comments to the line official on a no-call penalty earned him a straight red off the bench.

AC Milan manager Stefano Pioli was resting his starters against Torino, but should be bringing his best for the rivalry matchup to have a shot at making it to the finish line of the tournament.

As for Inter, it comes in unbeaten in the last four competitions, including a signature win over Juventus a couple of weeks ago. A win would not only be a sweet one because it can send its rival packing in the tournament, but it will also be a big confidence booster in closing the two-point gap in the league table when it returns to Serie A action.

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:

  1. Inter vs AC MilanDerby della Madonnina rivals duking it out for a spot in the Coppa Italia semi-final. Luaku vs Zlatan. This one should be fueled by passion, making it a must-watch.
  2. Tottenham vs Liverpool – After taking a weekend loss in the FA Cup in addition to being winless in the last five Premier League games, Liverpool is in crisis mode and is now at risk of falling out of the Champions League picture.
  3. Everton vs Leicester City – A must-win for both teams. Everton, who opened the season looking like a cheat code, is now back in the race for the top 4. The title race is on, Leicester is in it, and cannot afford to slip. Everything to play for here.
  4. Southampton vs Arsenal – Defending the FA Cup was all Arsenal had going for it this year, and Southampton just bounced them out of the tournament on Saturday. The Gunners will be supremely annoyed to see them again on short notice, and boss Mikel Arteta is on thin ice.
  5. Chelsea vs Wolverhampton – Another Premier League game which is interesting for all the wrong reasons. It is a miracle for Frank Lampard that he has not been sacked at Chelsea, the team notorious for sacking managers prematurely. Though Wolverhampton is having a down year, there is more than enough talent to give Chelsea something to worry about, and a Blues loss would most certainly be the end for Lampard.
