This Weekend’s Soccer on TV

A pair of derbies in the United Kingdom should command the attention of soccer fans around the world this weekend.

Rangers and Celtic renew pleasantries in the latest edition of the Old Firm derby, with Celtic running away from their rivals in the league table and Rangers wallowing in a financial crisis that has taken its toll on the field as well.

Over in England, Chelsea and Tottenham clash in a London derby with massive table implications. Tottenham's skid combined with Chelsea's improved play has the two battling it out for the Premier League's final berth in next season's UEFA Champions League. Also of note in England is Bolton's return to the field for the first time since Fabrice Muamba collapsed a week ago.

Elsewhere, CONCACAF Olympic qualifying continues with Group B play getting underway Friday night and the United States meeting Canada on Saturday looking to take the next step toward the semifinals. In MLS, the marquee matchup takes place Friday night as Seattle and Houston meet in a nationally televised battle of contenders.

    Did Fox Soccer get SPL games just for Rangers Celtic because MLS games are 10 times better than any of the other SPL games. I would rather see the Belgium League.

  2. Camjam says:

    Can’t wait to see the Sectarianism on display at Rangers v Celtic!

    In all seriousness i’m actually pretty happy that FSC is broadcasting this one, and I’m hoping for a good game.
