Manchester, Madrid derbies headline This Weekend's Soccer on TV and Online

By

In the opening phase of the 2021 English Premier League season, Manchester City sputtered out of the gate and did not give its massive fanbase much to be excited about.

Also, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had a tenuous grasp of proving he was capable of leading crosstown rival Manchester United back to a team that could contend for the title.

Things have changed. Now the Manchester clubs are in the top two spots in the Premier League table, and as the sunset begins on their respective campaigns, there is almost no doubt that you’re looking at the eventual champions when they square off on Sunday in the marquee match on the menu of This Weekend’s Soccer on TV and Online.

Manchester City should feel comfortable owning a 14-point lead with 11 games to go, but a loss to its bitter rival and nearest competitor could spark the massive meltdown needed to make the remaining weeks of the season interesting.

The Red Devils proved they can do it when they won the reverse fixture back in December.

In Spain, the title race is much tighter as another crosstown rivalry plays out on Sunday.

Atlético Madrid has been a steady points machine for much of the season, but the wheels have fallen off and it is no longer enjoying the death grip it once had on the La Liga table thanks to some spotty performances, and most recently, a 2-0 loss to Levante a couple of weeks ago.

The lead has been reduced to only five points, and usual suspects Barcelona and Real Madrid are the ones on Atlético’s heels.

Real Madrid has the opportunity to crush its rival’s momentum and turn its season into a title-winning effort when it heads to Wanda Metropolitano Stadium this weekend.

On any other week, Saturday’s Bayern Munich – Borussia Dortmund matchup would probably be your headliner, but the visitors are behind a crowd of contenders for the title and even with a win, will be asking a lot to jump back into the race.

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

This Weekend’s Top 5 Matches

  1. Manchester City vs Manchester United – If the latter has any hopes of putting up a fight for the title, it must find a way to beat its rival.
  2. Atlético Madrid vs Real Madrid – An identical scenario to Sunday’s game in Manchester, but Real Madrid’s situation is much more realistic. You would assume Barcelona, which is tied for second, takes care of business against Osasuna. If Los Blancos can pull it off, there will be a three way sprint to the end of the season with razor thin margins for error.
  3. Bayern München vs Borussia Dortmund – Dortmund is not in the title picture, but it has more than enough talent to pull off an upset and put its Der Klassiker rival in danger while it fights for a 2022 Champions League spot.
  4. Palmeiras vs Grêmio – Fresh off its crowing as Copa Libertadores champs, Palimeras is on the cusp of performing a double in the Copa do Brazil, despite having a disappointing league campaign.
  5. Freiburg vs RB Leipzig – If Dortmund can take points from Bayern and Leipzig takes care of business as an overwhelming favorite, they’ll be the new leaders of the Bundesliga.
