FA Cup: Manchester United vs. Crystal Palace, 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Ch. 9. It’s hard to tell which fans need this victory more. Manchester United’s fans endured an excitement-free season that ended with their team finishing fifth, out of the Champions League spots. Crystal Palace started brightly, then tanked in the season’s second half, winning just twice in calendar year 2016.
DFB Cup: Bayern Munich vs. Borussia Dortmund, 1 p.m. Saturday, ESPN3.com. It’s Pep Guardiola’s final game in charge at Bayern, before he moves on to manage Manchester City in England. A win would give him a second cup title, to go with the three Bundesliga titles he won in three years. Dortmund, Bayern’s main competition over the past few years, would dearly love to ruin the goodbye.
Copa del Rey: Barcelona vs. Sevilla, 2:30 p.m. Sunday, ESPN2. Sevilla are Europa League champions for the third straight year. A domestic cup, to go with European glory would be a perfect end to its week. Nothing but a league/cup/Champions League treble will do for Barcelona’s fans, so another cup to go with their La Liga title might be almost a consolation prize.
MLS: San Jose at Los Angeles, 6 p.m. Sunday, FS1. They call this game the “California Clasico,” and it’s one of the best rivalries in MLS. Los Angeles, with just one loss in 10 games, is probably the best team in the league this year. The Earthquakes are looking solid as well, and should make the playoffs — assuming ageless forward Chris Wondolowski can keep scoring a goal every game or so.
