This Weekend’s Soccer on TV

The FA Cup will be narrowed down to two finalists this weekend at Wembley Stadium, and each of the semifinal matches has a special twist to it. Tim Howard and Everton will look to topple Merseyside rival Liverpool. If that result happens, and Tottenham bests Chelsea in the all-London semifinal, then Howard and Brad Friedel could take center stage in the final.

Elsewhere around the world, Barcelona and Real Madrid each have one more match before their anticipated Clasico, with Real Madrid nursing a four-point edge heading into the weekend's match against Sporting Gijon. All eyes will be on Cristiano Ronaldo, not only for his goal-scoring exploits, but because if he receives a yellow card in the game, he'll be suspended for the grudge match with Barcelona.

In MLS, some of the biggest games of the season are on tap, with Sporting Kansas City hosting Real Salt Lake in a meeting of the league's top two teams; Colorado's Brian Mullan returning to Seattle for the first time with the since his tackle of Steve Zakuani; and New York's high-octane attack going up against San Jose's much-improved defense.
