Barcelona - PSG, return of UEFA Champions League headlines This Week's Soccer on TV

By

Things have not gone well for Barcelona so far in 2021.

The mysterious leak of Lionel Messi’s contract last month was the harbinger of high drama off the field. Things have been bad on the field too. The year so far has seen the team underperform in La Liga, have a complete meltdown in the Supercopa de España final, and set itself up with a 2-0 deficit in the Copa del Rey all while the much needed leadership reset hangs in the balance with the team’s presidential election coming up in March.

It isn’t garbage time yet, though.

In fact, it’s go time. The Catalan giant can right the ship and possibly more if it can get serious about the return of the UEFA Champions League, and its must-see matchup with PSG in the first leg of the Round of 16 on Tuesday.

The job is doable for Barca, too. PSG is not enjoying its usual cakewalk of France at the moment, and the honeymoon phase of Mauricio Pochettino abruptly ended when the team took a 3-2 loss to promotion side Lorient in his second match in charge, and the team still sits second in the Ligue 1 ranks with Neymar’s recent injury taking him out of the equation for the foreseeable future.

Advancing in the star-studded matchup will be a reprieve from their struggles for the winner, and the loser’s problems will be magnified.

Liverpool, another team who desperately needs to silence its critics with a good showing in the tournament, faces a passable test against RB Leipzig – but caution must be exercised. The German side already proved it has no reservations about punching up in the tournament, ask Manchester United fans about that story.

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

Top 5 Matches to Watch

  1. Barcelona vs PSG – Both desperately need to stay alive and start having fun, and the star power on display gives ground for someone to be the hero who leads the way.
  2. RB Leipzig vs Liverpool – Liverpool should win. But it has been blowing a lot of games it should win lately. How much trouble are they in?
  3. Porto vs Juventus – Cristiano Ronaldo in UCL mode. Enough said.
  4. USWNT vs Canada – The Canadians present the U.S. Women’s National Team with its toughest test in 2021 in the opening round of the SheBelieves Cup.
  5. Sevilla vs Borussia Dortmund – More UCL fare. Both will feel like this one is winnable, both have good arguments to think that way, but only one can go on to be the underdog in the next round.
