WEEKEND WATCH GUIDE
La Liga: Real Madrid at Valencia, 9 a.m. Saturday, beIN. The title hopes are gone and now Real Madrid is fighting to stay in the Spanish top four. A 7-1 victory last week over Deportivo La Coruna might get the club going, but a visit to third-place Valencia, which has the best home record in the division apart from Barcelona, will be a challenge.
FA Cup: Tottenham at Newport County FC, 11:30 a.m. Saturday, FS1. Tottenham is one of the best teams in England. Newport, in the fourth division, plays its home games at a rugby stadium in Wales. The beauty of the FA Cup is that Spurs have to go to Rodney Parade — what a great name for a stadium! — for the fourth round.
Ligue 1: Monaco at Marseille, 3:45 p.m. Sunday, beIN. Monaco’s all-conquering 2016-17 ended with the team selling half of its championship side. Now Monaco has fallen behind both Lyon and Marseille in the race for a spot in the Champions League. Radamel Falcao is the lone remaining light, with 16 goals in 18 games for Monaco.
Friendly: Bosnia-Herzegovina at USA, 8:30 p.m. Sunday, FS1. This match marks the end of the USA’s January training camp, and it’ll give us a chance to see who might be in the Americans’ future plans. Minnesota United forward Christian Ramirez also could make his first appearance for the national team.
