El Clasico headlines This Weekend’s Soccer on TV and Online

34 Shares

The jury is still out on Barcelona’s return to the world’s elite. Delivering Real Madrid its first look loss of the season would help clear up any confusion.

So far, the Blaugrana are pacing the Spanish ranks and lead their bitter rival only on goal differential through eight match weeks, but it hasn’t exactly been serene outside of league play.

A premature Champions League crash-out looms following a late heartbreaking tie to Inter, which raises questions about Barcelona’s ability to rise to the occasion in this year’s group of death.

Meanwhile, nobody is questioning Real Madrid’s status. Los Blancos come into the 250th competitive El Clásico meeting on a whopping 13-game unbeaten run across all competitions but have enjoyed a less difficult extracurricular campaign so far.

Speaking of teams looking to tread water with their reputation, Liverpool is on the cusp of losing even more credibility after only mustering two wins in a possible eight to open its domestic campaign. Any matchup with Manchester City is unwanted for a struggling team, and Sunday’s contest could see the Reds effectively eliminated from any title hopes with another push in the wrong direction.

Pep Guardiola took a gamble in resting Erling Haaland in the Citizens midweek Champions League contest against FC Copenhagen, which ended in a 0-0 draw. The stage is set for the 22-year-old phenom to return in a big way and extend his torrid scoring clip that’s produced 15 goals in his first nine games in City blue.

Of course, the opening round of MLS playoff action will be discussed at length here on SBI. Be sure to check back in the coming days for a closer look at the first-round action.

Here is a look at This Weekend’s Top 5 Matches to Watch, as well as a full rundown of This Week’s Soccer on TV and Online:


This Weekend’s Top 5 Matches to Watch


  1. Real Madrid vs Barcelona – Should be a telling one in the evergreen Spanish power struggle. 
  2. Liverpool vs Manchester City – The Anfield squad is dangerously close to becoming irrelevant in England. 
  3. MLS Playoffs – The wild world of the American postseason is going to be entertaining as a whole, not just one or two games.
  4. Blyth Spartans vs Wrexham – If you’ve picked Wrexham up as a team to support after watching the hit Hulu series, this is possibly your only chance to watch them live this year.
  5. Venezia vs Frosinone – Venezia is also a popular team for American viewers, but access is limited. This weekend is the first time all year the Venice-based side will be available to watch live.
