As is the case so many weeks of the season, the top match to watch this weekend features a pair of EPL heavyweights.
Arsenal takes on Manchester United on Sunday with a precious three points on the line for both clubs. The Gunners sit a point behind United in the race for second place behind Chelsea and a defeat at home would deal a painful blow to Arsenal's title hopes. The same could be said for Manchester United, which trails Chelsea by a point for first place, with Chelsea still holding a game in hand.
Arsenal-Manchester United is the marquee match-up this weekend, but hardly the only quality tilt. Key matches in Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and Portugal will give TV viewers a great variety of action to watch.
Here is this weekend's Soccer TV schedule, as well as our SBI Top Ten Matches to Watch:
TOP TEN MATCHES TO WATCH
1. Arsenal vs. Manchester United. The battle to stay on Chelsea's tail in the title race features red-hot Wayne Rooney and Cesc Fabregas.
2. Egypt vs. Ghana. Okay, so this game isn't on TV, but you'll be able to find an internet stream pretty easily and need to find a way to watch what should be a high-scoring and exciting match.
3. Sevilla vs. Valencia. Suddenly struggling Sevilla needs a win to push toward Top Four, while Valencia can try and put heat on Real Madrid for second with its own victory.
4. Corinthians vs. Palmeiras. This Sao Paolo rivalry is one of the world's fiercest, and both teams are off to strong starts in the Paulista campaign.
5. Feyenoord vs. Ajax. With PSV and FC Twente atop the Eredivise, these rivals are locked in a battle for third, with the winner still holding out hope of a Top Two spot.
6. Deportivo La Coruna vs. Real Madrid. With Cristiano Ronaldo suspended, Real Madrid will head into this match against surprising Depor in vulnerable shape. A win would push Deportivo into the Top Four in La Liga.
7. Napoli vs. Genoa. With Napoli in striking distance of second-place AC Milan, and Genoa within three points of fifth-place Palermo, this one should be a fierce contest.
8. Fulham vs. Aston Villa. No Clint Dempsey, but this is still a match worth watching.
9. Braga vs. Sporting Lisbon. Braga is trying to hold off Benfica atop the Portuguese standings while Sporting Lisbon is trying to close the gap on Porto for third place and the final Champions League place.
10. Montpelier vs. Marseille. Wondering why Montpelier is on this list? The club has quietly moved into second place in Ligue 1, with fourth-place Marseille looking to catch up with a victory.
