Real Madrid – Barcelona headlines This Weekend’s Soccer on TV and Online

10 Shares

Atlético Madrid’s worst nightmare has come true.

After blowing the gift of an early cushion, the La Liga title race is very much on, primed for a wild finish, and usual suspects Real Madrid and Barcelona are close enough to get their hopes up.

Saturday, they will look to beat up on each other for the lead in momentum in the 279th edition of El Clásico.

Heading into the weekend, Barcelona has the points advantage, but Madrid owns the momentum advantage after its 3-1 drubbing of Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.

They did it without the elite center back pairing of Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane, but both are looking likely to be ready for this weekend’s contest.

Here are This Weekend’s Top 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 to Watch

 

  1. Real Madrid vs Barcelona – An El Clásico which could decide the title. You know the drill.
  2. West Ham United vs Leicester City – West Ham is still hanging in the Champions League picture. Not enough has been said about that, and an upset victory here would not only add credibility to their case, but put Leicester on the brink of falling out.
  3. Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United – An opportunity for Manchester United fans to dine on struggling Jose Mourinho’s tears.
  4. Sweden vs USWNT – Pressure is usually not associated with the U.S. Women’s National team, but time is ticking for Vlatko Andonovski to craft his Olympic Roster, and everyone should be on their toes against a worthy adversary.
  5. Houston Dash vs Chicago Red Stars – More WoSo fare, the NWSL Challenge Cup kicks off this weekend, leading with a rematch of 2020’s final, with the Dash playing defending champs.

    This is getting more and more perverse. Why is it now so hard just to find decent soccer games on TV or standard cable?
    .
    Zero EPL games on TV on Friday, also no Bundesliga.
    .
    Only 2 EPL games on Saturday, yet again no Bundesliga, and of course also no Real Madrid vs. Barcelona, or any other La Liga. But there’s a Sweden vs. USA women’s friendly on Fox. And 2 Liga MX games! Whoop-ti-doo.
    .
    No EPL games on TV on Sunday (0 out of 4, including Spurs vs. Man U), and as ever, no Bundesliga. One Serie A game, on ABC of all places — but it’s Fiorentina vs. Atalanta, of all obscure games. (Why in the world would ESPN think any American fans would want to watch that, more than anything else all year from the Bundesliga, where there are finally a few American players, but ironically, no longer any televised games? Is a blah game really that dirt-cheap, or is it just a bizarre fluke?)
    .
    2 EPL games on Monday, and an appearance by Daryl Dike, but unfortunately it’s with those two clowns who try to make soccer “interesting for American audiences” by dumbing it down.
    .
    And the marketers are probably still wondering why US soccer viewership isn’t growing. Aaargh.

    • So for those who may be looking past the weekend for more games on TV, the prospects are definitely better later on.
