SBIS TOP 10 MATCHES TO WATCH
1. Barcelona vs. Real Madrid. Two best teams in the world. Period. Good day to leave work early.
2. Tottenham vs. Liverpool. If the Reds are going to climb back into the race for a Top Four spot, they will need at least a point at White Hart Lane.
3. Sampdoria vs. AC Milan. Red-hot Zlatan Ibrahimovic will look to do work on the road against an underrated Sampdoria side.
4. USA Women vs. Italy. Not a fan of womens soccer? You have to be a fan of a winner-take-all battle for a World Cup place involving the United States.
5. Juventus vs. Fiorentina. Surging Juve has a chance to pull closer to Milan with a win against underachieving Fiorentina.

8. Lyon vs. Paris St. Germain. PSG has first-place aspirations, while Lyon needs a win to climb into contention.
9. Santos Laguna vs. Club America. Even if youre not a fan of Mexican soccer, when youre talking MLS playoff semifinals, its going to be worth watching.
