5 World Football Games To Watch This Weekend

Another weekend in world football arrives, and with it the resumption of a historic rivalry that is without equal in the English game. When Manchester United and Liverpool come together, intensity and incident are all but guaranteed.

Elsewhere, the world's best player will get back to doing what he does best for Barcelona. Lionel Messi can't pick a suit, but he can pick a pass, and a finish, and a route through 10 defenders. Miss him at your peril.

We've also got defending Premier League champions Manchester City heading to Arsenal, where nothing less than three points will do in their quest to keep pace in the title race. Will Mario Balotelli start? Which Arsenal will turn up? These are just two of the questions that await.

Then there's Edinson Cavani, hot off a perfect hat-trick for Napoli and arguably the form striker in Europe right now. If you like full-blooded forwards and you like goals, watch him this weekend.

There's also a big game to watch in Portugal. The top two teams come together with everything at stake and long unbeaten runs there for the taking.

It should be a good one. Here are my five games to watch this weekend.
