Premier League: Tottenham at Arsenal, 6 a.m. Sunday, NBCSN. Fans of both North London teams will relish the extra hour of sleep Saturday night, and the opportunity to rest up for the Premier League’s most acrimonious rivalry. Both teams will be thinking of the impact this match will have on the title race, not just about the opportunity to beat their nearest, hated neighbors.
MLS playoffs: Montreal at New York, 3 p.m. Sunday, ESPN. Montreal leads 1-0 after the first leg but now has to try to hold off Bradley Wright-Phillips (above) and the Red Bulls for 90 minutes in New Jersey. The Impact has one big advantage: The tiebreaker in the two-leg match is the number of away goals scored, so scoring just once would require New York to get three goals to win.
MLS playoffs: Toronto at NYC, 5:30 p.m. Sunday, FS1. Under new manager Patrick Vieira, NYC adopted a free-flowing style, which lifted the second-year team to second place in the Eastern Conference. For some reason, though, NYC abandoned that style in the first leg of this match and tried to play defensively. As a result it lost 2-0 and now has a huge hill to climb at home.
MLS playoffs: Seattle at Dallas, 8 p.m. Sunday, FS1. Seattle used a three-goal burst in the second half to take a seemingly insurmountable 3-0 lead into the second leg. Dallas has lost its two best attackers — Mauro Diaz to injury, Fabian Castillo to a midseason transfer. Can the home team find three goals from somewhere while keeping Seattle off the board?
