Madrid Derby headlines This Week’s Soccer on TV and Online


Real Madrid has not exactly been convincing coming off the World Cup break but has a chance to reclaim some power in Spain this week.

Thursday’s Copa del Rey quarterfinal contest against crosstown rival Atlético Madrid could be exactly what Los Blancos need to get back to the dominant ways it opened the Spanish season with. As for Atlético, going all-in on cup play may not be the most advisable move as its Champions League spot from La Liga play is far from safe at the moment.

The U.S. men’s national team’s regeneration begins Wednesday with the first of two January friendlies in California. A crop of first-time call-ups is set to begin working to claim 2026 World Cup. Anthony Hudson’s squad will face off with Serbia and Colombia.

At the moment, Serie A has the closes top-to-bottom title contender race in Europe, and Tuesday’s Lazio – Milan contest is a matter of second vs fifth being separated by only four points.

In Premier League action, Tottenham has been a trainwreck you can’t look away from in recent weeks. On Monday, they see the same Fulham side that was good enough to upset Chelsea two weeks ago and hope to avoid a three-game losing streak.

This Week’s Top 5 Matches to Watch

  1. Real Madrid vs Atlético Madrid – The upset is there for Atlético, but is the cup the most important thing on manager Diego Simeone’s mind right now?
  2. USMNT vs Serbia – Should be interesting to see who makes the most of this camp.
  3. Lazio vs Milan – A critical matchup in the Scudetto race where nobody can afford to lose pace with Napoli.
  4. Fulham vs Tottenham Hotspur – Nothing is a given for Tottenham at the moment, and another loss could be Antonio Conte’s curtain call.
  5. Freiburg vs Eintracht Frankfurt – Second vs fourth in a tighter Bundesliga race than many imagined it to be.
