WEEKEND WATCH GUIDE
Premier League: Leicester City at Chelsea, 9 a.m. Saturday, NBCSN. Seventh place in the Premier League could well qualify for the Europa League next season, depending on results, and Leicester City is within four points of that spot. Getting a result at Stamford Bridge won’t be easy, though, not with Chelsea fighting to stay in the top four.
La Liga: Villareal at Real Madrid, 9:15 a.m. Saturday, beIN. Forget Real Madrid winning the Spanish league — at the moment, the reigning Spanish champions are in more danger of falling out of the top four. They are the same distance from first place as they are to 17th. A home victory over Villareal, itself chasing a European spot, would be a start.
Bundesliga: Schalke at RB Leipzig, 11:30 a.m. Saturday, FS2. Apart from Bayern Munich at the top of the league, the German standings are so tight that Leipzig could end the day in second place or eighth place, depending on the results. Schalke leads this pack but is distracted, with all-everything striker Leon Goretzka seemingly determined to leave.
Premier League: Manchester City at Liverpool, 10 a.m. Sunday, NBCSN. The title race is all but over; now we’re just circling dates on the calendar where Manchester City could potentially lose its undefeated season. Liverpool hasn’t lost at home all year but has drawn nearly half of those home games. Could Mo Salah and company hand Man City its first loss?
