Grab The Remote

There should be some good soccer on TV this weekend. The MLS Conference leaders meet in a showdown Saturday night and three of top four leagues in Europe could be decided this weekend, while the fourth big league has four teams that could still win. Since it is supposed to rain so much anyway, this would be a good weekend to sit yourself in front of the TV and catch the action.

Eastern Conference leaders DC United travel out west to meet Western Conference leaders Chivas USA in MLS action. In England, ManU needs a draw to claim the EPL title. In Spain, Barca can claim the title with a victory or a Real Madrid loss. In Italy, a win will hand Inter the Serie A crown if AC Milan doesn’t lose on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the German Bundesliga is still wide open. Wolfsburg, Bayern Munich, Hertha Berlin, and Stuttgart all still have a chance to bring home the title with two games to play. This could be the most exciting finish in Bundesliga history.

Here are the big games and where you can see them.
