UEFA Champions League quarterfinals headline This Week’s Soccer on TV and Online


It is officially gut-check season for Manchester City and Liverpool, which will remain in the spotlight of the soccer world for another week and weekend. The two English giants are nearly inseparable in the Premier League ranks after their 2-2 tie over the weekend, and they swiftly have to shift their focus back to UEFA Champions League quarterfinal play this week, and then prepare to meet again in the FA Cup this weekend.

Manchester City has to travel to Atlético Madrid and is in charge by a 1-0 margin. In the first leg last week, Atlético was more than happy letting the Cityzens run the show and did not even muster up a single shot. Now, Diego Simeone’s men will have to come out of their shells and make the most of home-field advantage in a game it can realistically flip the script on.

Liverpool, on the other hand, has a 3-1 lead over Portuguese side Benfica that it takes back to Anfield for the second leg. It is hard to see The Reds losing control of that one, but anything is possible at this stage in the tournament.

That sentiment has been proven by Villarreal, which knocked out Juventus in the Round of 16 and holds a 1-0 lead over Germain giant Bayern Munich. Nobody expected Unai Emery’s men to beat Juve 3-0 to close out the last series, and the belief should be there that they can rattle off another stunning upset.

Chelsea can come out of the week as the biggest talking point in the sport if it can manage to even things up with Real Madrid on the road, but it obviously will not be expected based on the first game. Los Blancos hold a commanding 3-1 lead thanks to a hat trick from Karim Benzema last week, and the Blues must find a way to contain the Frenchman if they want to live to defend their UCL glory.

Elsewhere, Concacaf Champions League semifinals will set the stage for an MLS-Liga MX battle for the trophy. New York City FC is staring at a 3-1 deficit to the Seattle Sounders, and Pumas leads Cruz Azul 2-1.
