This Weekend’s Soccer on TV

Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid clash this weekend, in a rivalry match with second place in the Spanish Primera Division on the line.

Real Madrid will attempt to bounce back from a midweek thrashing from Borussia Dortmund in the semifinals of the Champions League, and a victory over crosstown rivals Atlético will boost morale around the club. Unfortunately, however, with the league out of sight and Champions League hopes seemingly dashed, Real have admittedly little left to play for, and a weak side may be fielded in order to rest key players for the uphill battle left with Borussia Dortmund next week.

Atlético Madrid, on the other hand, have enjoyed an extremely successful, which saw them sit in second place in La Liga for the majority of the season. Diego Simeone will fancy his squad’s chances, and will attempt to lead Los Colchoneros to their first victory over Real Madrid since 1999.

On Sunday, Arsenal will welcome Manchester United to the Emirates, in a fixture which will see Robin van Persie return to his old stomping grounds for the first time since his summer move to Manchester.

With Manchester United having clinched their 20th English title last weekend, Arsenal will perform the traditional guard of honor for the English champions.

The Gunners have won five of their last six matches in league-play, and will hope to topple Manchester United in an attempt to secure a 16th consecutive season of Champions League action. There surely is no better time to face Sir Alex Ferguson’s crew, with the possibility of a hangover following United’s recent title celebration.
