WEEKEND WATCH GUIDE
La Liga: Atlético Madrid at Real Madrid, 9:15 a.m. Saturday, beIN Sports. While everyone was paying attention to Sevilla’s brief run to the top of Spain, Atlético was quietly working its way back up to third in the table. They won’t catch their crosstown rivals at the top of the standings — but they can still throw a wrench into their rivals’ plans for the La Liga title.
Premier League: Chelsea at Bournemouth, 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Ch. 11. Chelsea finally stumbled briefly at the top of the Premier League, with a shocking loss to Crystal Palace, but a home victory over Manchester City should right the Blues’ ship. That said, a trip to Bournemouth, which is coming off an excellent draw on the road at Liverpool, won’t be that easy.
Bundesliga: Borussia Dortmund at Bayern Munich, 11:30 a.m. Saturday, FS1. The two German giants have equal home records this season, but while Bayern has been just as good on the road as they have at home, Dortmund has lost more games than it’s won — the main reason Bayern will win the title, while BVB chases third place in the standings.
Liga MX: Toluca at Pumas, noon Saturday, Univision. Don’t look now, but unexciting Toluca has climbed to the top of the Mexican standings, with only six games to go in the spring. Pumas, meanwhile, is stuck in a group of eight or nine teams that is chasing four or five playoff spots, and needs to get consistent results to guarantee a top-eight spot.
