This Weekend’s Soccer on TV

Club soccer returns this weekend from the international break with a bang. On tap this weekend, there are massive matches in Germany and England, the resumption of the MLS playoffs and the start of the Liguilla (playoffs) in the Liga MX.

Saturday morning starts with the Merseyside Derby with Everton entertaining Liverpool at Goodison Park. It is the 221st time the Liverpool clubs have clashed in all competitions and the longest running top flight derby in England dating back to the 1962-63 season.

But the match of the weekend may be in Germany as first place Bayern Munich heads to second place Borussia Dortmund in a rematch of last season’s Champions League Final. A win or a draw for treble winners Bayern Munich would not only extend their lead at the top of the table, but also set a record for the longest run of matches in the Budesliga without a defeat. The Bavarians (30-6-0) are looking to break the record held by Hamburg since 1982-83, but they will have to do it without Franck Ribery who is out with a rib injury.

Back on this side of the pond, the MLS Cup playoffs return with Sporting Kansas City and Houston still looking for the first goal of the Eastern Conference Championship. Over in the West, Portland will look to overturn a two-goal deficit in front of its home fans after falling 4-2 in the first leg away to Real Salt Lake.
