WEEKEND WATCH GUIDE
Euro 2016 qualifying: Denmark at Sweden, 1:45 p.m. Saturday, FS2. The Scandinavian rivals aren’t playing nice ahead of this match; Danish TV is running ads for the games that feature people throwing away IKEA furniture and burning ABBA records. Only one of these two will make it through the playoff round to reach the Euros next summer. This is the first leg of the match.
Big East tournament: Creighton at Georgetown, noon Sunday, FS2. Creighton forward Fabian Herbers and midfielder Timo Pitter, both among the top 10 collegiate players, spearhead a loaded Bluejays attack. In their way is junior Georgetown defender Joshua Yaro, who might be the best player in college soccer not named Jordan Morris. Both teams are in the national top 10.
Euro 2016 qualifying: Norway at Hungary, 1:45 p.m. Sunday, ESPN. The Norwegians haven’t been to a major tournament since 2000, but Hungary’s drought stretches back to 1986. Hungary finished third in Group F mostly because of last-place Greece’s implosion, and while Hungary is higher-ranked, Norway might be the most likely to win the two-legged playoff.
NASL: Ottawa at New York, 4 p.m. Sunday, ESPN3. The NASL title match will come down to New York, the league’s most dominant team, against Ottawa, the league’s hottest. Legends Marcos Senna and Raul will retire following this game, giving the Cosmos the chance to send their latest stars off with a championship — but the red-hot Fury is confident it can play spoiler.
