It's a busy weekend of matches, but 10 stand out above the rest. Sit down on the couch and take in these contests in this weekend. The outdoors is overrated anyway.

Hertha Berlin vs. Köln - Saturday, 9:30 am
Köln have shocked most everyone to get into second place and their draw against Bayern Munich made it clear that it wasn't some fluke. They didn't just play weak teams or get a few bounces to take second. They're a very good team. So are Hertha, who sit in fifth place, but can leap Köln with a win.

Swansea City vs. Watford - Saturday, 10 am
Bob Bradley's first match in charge of Swansea didn't go so well, as their shambolic defending continued and they fellt 3-2 at Arsenal. But now he's at the Liberty Stadium for his home opener and not playing Arsenal. We'll get a better idea of how tough it will be for him to keep the Swans in the Premier League when Watford ccomes to town.
Valencia vs. Barcelona - Saturday, 10:15 am
Don't look now, but Barcelona are down to fourth in the La Liga table. And Valencia are 15th? It's been a weird season for both of these teams, but one will get back on track this weekend.
(Psst ... it's Barcelona)

AC Milan vs. Juventus - Saturday, 2:45 pm
This used to be the premier match in Serie A. Not anymore. It's not Juventus' fault either. AC Milan have simply been a truly terrible team for a few years now, but they look like they might be making their way back a bit. They're not going to challenge The Old Lady for the title, but picking up a win over the country's top team would be a nice signal that they're going to be ready for that challenge in a year or two.

Sevilla vs. Atletico Madrid - Sunday, 10:15 am
How did Barcelona slip to fourth in the league, you might ask. Sevilla is how. They've lost just once this season and sit in third place, a single point behind first place Atletico Madrid. And, oh hey, Sevilla host Atleti this weekend. Let's do this.

Paris Saint-Germain vs. Marseille - Sunday, 2:45 pm
PSG aren't leading Ligue 1. They're not even second. They're third, four points off the pace set by Nice. No one would have imagined that at any point in the last few years. And before PSG dominated France, Marseille was one of the country's power teams, but they're not even in the top half of Ligue 1 right now. These teams have got to figure it out.

LA Galaxy vs. FC Dallas - Sunday, 4 pm (FS1)
FC Dallas have never won the Supporters' Shield before, but they will if they can manage at draw in LA on Sunday. It would be the team's second trophy of the season, along with the U.S. Open Cup, and put them in position to chase the first ever domestic treble in American soccer history if they can capture MLS Cup. But the Galaxy stand in their way and they've been sputtering heading into the playoffs so they'll be looking to cobble together some momentum on the season's final day.

Seattle Sounders vs. Real Salt Lake - Sunday 4 pm
The Sounders are trying to finish off one of the most improbable second half surges in MLS history and go from the depths of the Western Conference to a playoff spot. Now they're right on RSL's heels, but like Salt Lake, Seattle could finish anywhere from fourth, which would get them home-field in the play-in round, to out of the postseason. Everything will be on the line at CenturyLink Field.

Chivas vs. Pachuca - Sunday, 9 pm
The Liga MX race is a mess, with Pachuca in second place, but only six points clear of ninth, which would leave them out of the Liguilla. And Chivas are only a point behind Pachuca so they can jump to second, which could get them within striking distance of Tijuana for the top spot.
