WEEKEND WATCH GUIDE
Bundesliga: Borussia Dortmund at Wolfsburg, 8:30 a.m. Saturday, FS1. American viewers might have every Dortmund game bookmarked as must-watch this year, as Christian Pulisic tries to establish himself as a consistent cog on one of Germany’s best teams. Pulisic and company have an uphill battle to chase Bayern Munich this year, as always.
Serie A: Cagliari at Juventus, 11 a.m. Saturday, beIN Sports. The reigning Italian champions start their defense at home, but without Leonardo Bonucci and Dani Alves, two stalwarts from last year. Manager Max Allegri has successfully navigated departures before, but this year seems like a huge challenge.
Liga MX: Pumas at Tigres, 7 p.m. Saturday, Univision. After scoring five goals in the season’s opening game, the Tigres attack has fallen flat, scoring just once in each of the next three games — a winless stretch for the league favorites. Three games is a cold streak for any team, but it represents nearly a fifth of the Apertura season.
Premier League: Chelsea at Tottenham, 10 a.m. Sunday, NBCSN. Tottenham, undefeated at home last year, opens its home schedule this year at Wembley Stadium. The Spurs will need to settle quickly if they are to challenge for the title. Chelsea is in disarray after an opening-week home loss to lowly Burnley in which two Blues were sent off.
