WEEKEND WATCH GUIDE
La Liga: Deportivo at Real Madrid, 1:30 p.m. Saturday, beIN Sports: Zinedane Zidane’s foray into big-time coaching begins with a visit from Deportivo, which is in seventh place but has only three losses all year. Zidane was a legend as a player; managing the egos on his team might require another legendary performance.
Liga MX: Puebla at América, 5 p.m. Saturday, Univision: América crashed to a sixth-place finish in the fall season and endured an embarrassing performance at the FIFA Club World Cup. Manager Nacho Ambriz is still in charge of the big Mexico City club, but anything less than a fast spring-season start might spell doom.
FA Cup: Scunthorpe United at Chelsea, 8 a.m. Sunday, FS1: Scunthorpe, in 15th place in the third division, was drawn against the London giants — the magic of the FA Cup in action. Chelsea looks like its struggles are over; watch for the minuscule chance that Scunthorpe pulls the upset of the year.
FA Cup: Leicester City at Tottenham, 10 a.m. Sunday, FS1. Leicester has been the Premier League’s surprise team, but Tottenham has quietly cruised to a solid fourth place. Both have an unlikely chance at the Premier League trophy, but the FA Cup may be the best chance for either team to win a championship in 2016.
