One team is looking to extend its lead atop the Premier League while the other is just trying to fight for a European place as Manchester United takes on Liverpool today in the North West Derby, the premier match on today's schedule of international club action.
Manchester United will be looking to take advantage of Arsenal's stumble on Saturday, a 0-0 draw against Sunderland that could allow United to widen the gap atop the standings. Liverpool can jump ahead of Bolton for sixth place, and the final automatic qualifying place for Europa League, while also keeping extremely faint hopes of a Top Four finish alive.
Today's soccer schedule doesn't end with the early-morning Man Utd-Liverpool clash. Lazio and Palermo collide in a showcase of some of Europe's best young talent, while Marseille battles with Lille in a meeting of two of France's best.
