WEEKEND WATCH GUIDE
Premier League: Manchester United at Manchester City, 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Ch. 11. Manchester City couldn’t have planned it any better. City can win the Premier League title if it just beats the hated crosstown rivals, an embarrassment that United manager Jose Mourinho is desperate to prevent.
MLS: LAFC at Atlanta, 4 p.m. Saturday, ESPN. Until it got Zlatan’ed, LAFC was threatening to keep its perfect record through three games of its expansion season — a splash on the MLS stage rivaled only by Atlanta, last year’s expansion darlings. A huge crowd in Atlanta will welcome this year’s MLS newcomers.
La Liga: Atletico Madrid at Real Madrid, 9 a.m. Sunday, beIN. Real has been playing so well that the gap between it and its Madrid rival has narrowed to four points — in large part because of Cristiano Ronaldo. In his past 12 games, Ronaldo has scored an astonishing 23 goals — plus two more in international appearances.
Liga MX: Tigres at Toluca, 11:30 a.m. Sunday, Univision. It’s been a while since Toluca was relevant in Liga MX. Los Diablos Rojos (the Red Devils) haven’t finished atop the standings for nearly a decade, but with four games to go, that’s where they find themselves. A home win against perennial champs Tigres would do wonders.
