1. Real Madrid CF vs. Granada CF

Details: Saturday, January 25 @ 10:00 AM ET - Santiago Bernabeu Stadium - Madrid, Spain

Watch Here: beINSports on XFINITY

Why Watch: Real Madrid has been a picture of near perfection at home, winning eight of the last nine, and are looking to pile on the points for a 33rd La Liga trophy. Granada is looking to even the score from their 0-1 loss early in the fixtures, and make their journey to the top of the table that much harder. Real has a bevy of goal scorers with Ronaldo, Benzema, and Bale, while Granada looks to separate themselves in the four-way tie for the 10th spot in the La Liga table. Will Granada climb or is this Madrid’s moment to shine? Don’t miss Saturday’s biggest match on beIN Sports!

2. Los Angeles Kings vs. Anaheim Ducks

Details: Saturday, January 25 @ 9:30 PM ET - Dodger Stadium - Los Angeles, CA

Watch Here: NBCSN on XFINITY

Why Watch: These teams just met, ending in a Ducks 2-1 victory, but this one is different! It’s hockey, in the elements, and on the diamond? Yes, the rink has come to the MLB ballpark and what a setting for these west coast rivals! The Ducks are flying high with the NHL’s highest point total (81) and best overall record 38-10-5. Anaheim will be hard pressed to get the puck past the Kings’ Olympian goalie, Jonathan Quick. LA has allowed the fewest goals in the league (106) and will look to let their defense do the talking. How will the mighty Ducks handle the weather, migrate or dominate? Tweet me who you’re taking in this Saturday night skate!

3. New York Rangers vs. New Jersey Devils

Details: Sunday, January 26 @ 12:30 PM ET - Yankee Stadium - New York, New York

Watch Here: NBC on XFINITY

Why Watch: The Rangers have won three of their last four and bring three of Sochi’s finest (Stepan, Callahan, and McDonagh) to Yankee stadium, where they’re playing hockey in a winter wonderland. The #StadiumSeries skates on Sunday in the Bronx and look for more flurries than goals while Lundqvist is in the net. The Devils will come to town and look to continue their impressive play. Brodeur has looked outstanding and they netted a season high seven goals early in the week vs. STL. We’ll all be watching and waiting to see what happens first: snowfall or an early goal in Sunday’s #StadiumSeries showdown.

4. FC Barcelona vs. Malaga CF

Details: Sunday, January 26 @ 3:00 PM ET - Camp Nou - Barcelona, Spain

Watch Here: beINSports on XFINITY

Why Watch: With Real Madrid playing on Saturday, Barca might be playing to reclaim the top spot of the table in their Sunday afternoon match with Malaga.

Details: Sunday, January 26 @ 7:30 PM ET - Aloha Stadium - Honolulu, HI

Watch Here: NBC on XFINITY
