Get Plugged In, There Are Some HUGE Matches This Weekend

Barcelona v. Real Madrid
GolTV / WorldSport HD
4pm ET, LIVE
See BL's post below.

Estudiantes de La Plata v. Boca Juniors
TyC Sports USA
7pm ET, LIVE
Well, well, well, look who we have here. A great early matchup of last year's one and two, played before a sell out crowd at the Ciudad de La Plata stadium. I'd keep an eye Juan Sebastian Veron and Martin Palermo when this one kicks off, they had a very public falling out after last season's playoff final. According to Palermo, la Brujita made some Materazzi-style remarks that left him deeply offended.

Chelsea v. Tottenham
8:30am ET, LIVE
[Re-aired Wed (3/14) at 1pm ET on FSC]
Who doesn't like a London derby (other than Arsene Wenger)? Both teams had great European results this week, though Chelsea made it's tie against Porto harder than it should have been. Stamford Bridge has been a fortress for the Blues this season, they have yet to lose at home.

Rangers v. Celtic
10am ET, LIVE
[Re-aired Tue (3/13) at 07:30pm ET on Setanta]
Both teams head into this Old Firm match after disappointing European outings. Celtic was crushed after it's elimination at the hands of the Rossoneri. But with the SPL almost sewn up, they will look to put the screws to Walter Smith's side who have made life difficult for themselves in the UEFA Cup after today's draw against Osasuna.

Inter v. Milan
GolTV / RAI International
10am ET, LIVE
See BL's post below.

Bayern Munich v. Werder Bremen
12pm ET, LIVE
Bayern host their second big match in four days, welcoming Werder to the Allianz Arena. The Munich giants are six points behind league leaders Schalke 04, while the Bremen side are three points back in second place. Ottmar Hitzfeld's team may have shot it's wad on Wednesday against Real Madrid, but they do have an extra day of rest due to Werder's win today against Celta Vigo.

Club America vs Cruz Azul
10pm ET, LIVE
Both teams have had a decent start to the Mexican Clausura season, with America leaning closer to the indifferent tag (4 wins, 1 draw, 3 losses). Both teams could really jump start their campaign with a win in this Mexico City derby.

As always, check your local listings for dates and times in your area.
