Weekend watch: Must-see matches from around the world

A rivalry weekend in England heads this version of the weekend watch:

Liverpool vs. Everton, English Premier League, Saturday at 4:45 a.m.

Brendan Rogers and the Reds are reeling after opening the season with three league losses out of five matches, and there’s nothing their crosstown rivals would love more than to shove them further down the table.

Villarreal vs. Real Madrid, Spanish Primera, Saturday at 7 a.m.

Real can score goals in bunches, but a trip to the 24,890-seat home of the Yellow Submarine is more intimidating than it sounds – don’t sleep on an upset.

Arsenal vs. Tottenham Hotspur, English Premier League, Saturday at 9:30 a.m.

Both like to think of themselves at Champions League – if not title – contenders, the former more reasonably than the latter. This would be a good time to show why.

Marseille vs St. Etienne, French Ligue 1, Sunday at 12 p.m.

Both teams are off to scorching starts in France, with the former topping the table with 16 points from seven matches and the latter in third with 14 from the same – but PSG is lurking close behind in fourth.

Los Angeles Galaxy vs. New York Red Bulls, Major League Soccer, Sunday at 5:30 p.m.

Two of the hottest sides in MLS clash in what could be the final head-to-head meeting between Landon Donovan and Thierry Henry. Oh, and it could have some serious Supporter’s Shield implications, too.
