WEEKEND WATCH GUIDE

MLS: Los Angeles at Orlando City, 2 p.m. Saturday, Ch. 9. Orlando City has started the season well at home, winning all three of its games at its new downtown stadium. Los Angeles, meanwhile, has struggled a little so far in the post-Bruce Arena era, with two losses to start the year and an ugly 4-2 loss at Vancouver already in the books.

 

NWSL: Orlando at Portland, 2 p.m. Saturday, Lifetime. Tobin Heath (injury) and Alex Morgan (foreign contract) won’t play in this match, which has shorn the season-opening match of some of its star power. That said, there’s no better atmosphere in women’s soccer than the Providence Park cauldron in Portland.

 

Premier League: Chelsea at Manchester United, 10 a.m. Sunday, NBCSN. It’s crunch time in the Premier League, with six or seven games left for most of the league. Chelsea, with a seven-point lead at the top, doesn’t want Tottenham to get any closer. Man United, in fifth place, needs a string of good results to climb back into the top four.

 

Liga MX: Monterrey at Toluca, noon Sunday, Univision. Toluca surprised everyone by climbing to the top of the Clausura standings, but an ugly midweek loss to lowly Cruz Azul has fans wondering anew about Toluca’s bona fides. Monterrey, lurking in third place, might be able to take over the top spot if it can win away against the Red Devils.
