What to watch in the leading soccer leagues in Europe this weekend:ITALYJuventus will clinch a record-extending eighth straight Serie A title if it beats AC Milan on Saturday and Napoli loses to Genoa a day later.Napoli’s unexpected loss at Empoli on Wednesday will likely have the effect of moving up Juve’s celebration.Juventus leads Napoli by 18 points with eight rounds remaining and the Bianconeri hold the tiebreaker DeAndre Yedlin Jersey , too.Fourth-place Milan, however, is desperate to end a three-match winless streak and revive its hopes of qualifying for the Champions League.With Mauro Icardi having returned from his contract standoff, third-place Inter Milan appears more at ease entering its game Sunday against thriving Atalanta, which is fifth and only four points from the Champions League places.Also this weekend, struggling Roma visits Sampdoria and Lazio hosts Sassuolo.— By Andrew DampfGERMANYBorussia Dortmund visits Bayern Munich on Saturday for a game that could decide which team lifts the Bundesliga “salad bowl” trophy at the end of the season.Dortmund leads Bayern by two points thanks to the Bavarian powerhouse’s 1-1 draw at Freiburg and two very late goals from Paco Alcacer in Dortmund’s 2-0 win over Wolfsburg last weekend. Seven rounds remain after this weekend.Bayern, which is chasing a record-extending seventh consecutive title, was pushed to the limit by second-division Heidenheim in the German Cup on Wednesday before Robert Lewandowski came to the side’s rescue in a 5-4 win. The side played most of the game with 10 men, so tiredness may also be a factor against Dortmund.However, Dortmund has problems in defense with Achraf Hakimi out for the rest of the season with a broken foot, and Abdou Diallo and Lukasz Piszczek both doubtful. Raphael Guerreiro is likely to fill in at left back, while the side welcomes back captain Marco Reus following the birth of his first child.Bayern is hoping goalkeeper Manuel Neuer and defender David Alaba are back in time.— By Ciaran FaheySPAINAtletico Madrid has to seize its last chance to challenge for the Spanish league title when it visits leader Barcelona on Saturday.After reducing the gap by two points in the previous round, Atletico can get within five points of the lead with a win at Camp Nou Stadium.Barcelona needed two late goals to salvage a draw at Villarreal on Tuesday but remains unbeaten in 15 matches in all competitions and its last league loss was back in November.Atletico is coming off two straight victories but hasn’t won at the Camp Nou in 18 consecutive matches, since 2006. Atletico’s last win against Barcelona in all competitions was in 2016 in the Champions League.Third-place Real Madrid five points behind Atletico and with little to play for the rest of the season, will try to rebound from a league loss at Valencia —the team’s first since the return of Zinedine Zidane— when it hosts Eibar on Saturday.— By Tales AzzoniENGLANDChasing an unprecedented quadruple of trophies, Manchester City looks to reach the FA Cup final but could be replaced at the top of the Premier League by Liverpool before the weekend has begun.Second-place Liverpool is one point behind City heading into its away match against Southampton on Friday. It is one of the toughest of Liverpool’s remaining six games, with Southampton recently finding some form in its fight to avoid relegation.City isn’t in Premier League action because it faces Brighton on Saturday in the first of this weekend’s FA Cup semifinals at Wembley Stadium. The other semifinal match is between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Watford on Sunday.Also in the league, Arsenal can move into third place, above fierce rival Tottenham, by beating Everton on Sunday. Tottenham, which doesn’t play this weekend, could even be bumped out of the top four as fifth-place Chelsea hosts out-of-form West Ham on Monday.Third-place Tottenham is one point clear of both Arsenal and Chelsea.— By Steve DouglasFRANCEWith a 20-point lead in the French league, Paris Saint-Germain is just two wins away from a sixth title in seven years.PSG could even wrap up the title on Sunday if it beats Strasbourg and second-place Lille fails to win at Reims.Despite the absence of several key players because of injury, including Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Angel Di Maria, the defending champions have showed no sign of slowing down since their disappointing exit from the Champions League last month.PSG, which in any case will be guaranteed of the title with a win over Lille on April 14 Gyasi Zardes Jersey , qualified for a fifth straight French Cup final in midweek ahead of Sunday’s game at the Parc des Princes.Behind the runaway leader, Lille and Lyon are involved in a tight race for the second automatic Champions League spot. Lille faces a tough trip to Champagne while Lyon takes on Dijon at home in need of a good result to stay in contact with its northern rival.With eight matches left to play, Lille holds a four-point lead over Lyon.— By Sam Petrequin LOS ANGELES (AP) — Although the wordless billboards went up quietly this week on the streets around Los Angeles FC’s Banc of California Stadium, their message to the city is loud and clear.Some of the huge signs show imperious LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic running into LAFC’s Latif Blessing, sending the smaller man flying. In others, Zlatan is making a saucy gesture toward LAFC’s Carlos Vela, or perhaps celebrating in his fellow superstar’s face.Each of the photos captured a triumphant moment for Zlatan and the Galaxy during the first four editions of El Tráfico, the increasingly outstanding rivalry series between Major League Soccer’s two Los Angeles clubs. LAFC’s fans have the best team in the league this season, but it has never beaten the Galaxy — and those fans will have to walk past these trolling provocations around their home ground before the latest edition of the LA derby Sunday night.“I thought it was funny,” Galaxy midfielder Sebastian Lletget said after he saw the billboards on social media. “That stuff gets us going. It’s just good for the city, man. Even though they’re probably a little bitter about it.”A rivalry that didn’t exist 18 months ago has grown into one of the highest-profile matchups in the league, drawing rowdy crowds and attracting international attention for the intensity and quality of the first four games.The Galaxy are the only five-time champions in MLS history, while their crosstown foes are a model expansion franchise with a lavish new stadium near downtown LA. Multicultural Los Angeles has loved and embraced soccer for decades, but having two successful professional franchises has amplified that passion Bobby Wood Jersey , turning each of these rivalry games into something special.“Ever since the first game, this rivalry has grown so organically,” Lletget said. “You’ll see on Sunday, the intensity is as if you’re in a derby in Europe. It’s pretty crazy.”Although the Galaxy (13-11-2) are in third place in the Western Conference, they’re a whopping 20 points behind LAFC (19-3-4), which is running away with MLS’ best record during a spectacular second season.But LAFC is 0-2-2 against its biggest rivals, making this final regular-season meeting even more urgent for the newcomers in black and gold.“It’s the derby,” LAFC coach Bob Bradley said. “It means more. So far, with all the things we’ve done, we haven’t beat them.”Thrilling finishes, spectacular goals and bad-tempered play have been in abundance ever since this rivalry began with Zlatan’s electrifying two-goal MLS debut during the Galaxy’s comeback victory in March 2018.Ibrahimovic and Vela have scored a whopping six goals apiece in the four El Tráfico games, doing everything that’s expected from arguably the league’s two best players. Their last meeting was dominated by the superstars, with Ibrahimovic’s hat trick besting Vela’s brace in a 3-2 victory for the Galaxy on July 19.“When you play against the other team of the city, you always want to do your best https://www.thetopsoccer.com/usa/paul-arriola-jersey ,” said Vela, who already has 26 goals and 15 assists in a historically prolific season. “You want to win. You want to show you are better than the other team of the city, and it’s a good chance to show how good we are this season. I hope we can finally get the three points.”The rivalry is new, but the fan bases’ animus is older.Galaxy supporters look down at LAFC for its brief history and an empty trophy case, but also because LAFC’s fan base includes many hard-core supporters who switched allegiances from Chivas USA, which dissolved in 2014 after a dismal decade sharing the Galaxy’s stadium.But LAFC fans love to point out the Galaxy technically aren’t from Los Angeles, and never have been. They’ve been based in Carson, a suburb due south of downtown LA, since 2003 after spending their first nine years of existence at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.“The intensity comes by itself, because it’s two teams from the same city,” Ibrahimovic said. “Rivals. I think it comes automatic, the intensity of this game.”Banc of California Stadium will be intense from the moment LAFC’s 3252 supporters union starts rocking the North End a couple of hours before kickoff. Ticket prices on the secondary market for Sunday’s game skyrocketed in recent days, with few single seats under $200 and the high-end tickets topping $1,500.Along with a national television broadcast Zack Steffen Jersey , fans at home can watch a streaming comedic commentary program synced to the match by Funny or Die, the comedy website co-founded by LAFC minority owner Will Ferrell.What’s more, both sides of this derby are getting serious reinforcements before this edition.Sunday’s game will be the first El Tráfico for Cristian Pavón, the speedy Argentine forward who arrived earlier this month and immediately took a major role in the Galaxy’s attack. It could also mark the LAFC debut of Brian Rodríguez, the promising Uruguayan designated player whose paperwork cleared just in time to make him available to Bradley this weekend.“Games with the Galaxy take on an extra dimension,” Bradley said. “We know that. We’ve had really good moments against them, but we haven’t won yet, and so that’s something that doesn’t need discussing inside our team. Everybody knows.”
