This time of year, soccer fans have about as many choices as you can get when it comes to seeing quality matches take place. From friendly matches, to playoffs, and everything in between – it took place this week and is sure to get better as the MLS playoffs arrive and UEFA Champions League action picks up next month.

Real Madrid stole the show in the latest Soccer Watch by winning their seventh consecutive Santiago Bernabeu Cup. Although considered a friendly, and set up by Real Madrid, the 2-1 victory over the Turkish Galatasaray SK club was definitely entertaining. Other action included a Barcelona workout this week where Lionel Messi and Cesc Fabregas were spotted. The UEFA Europa League Playoffs were in full swing, and in the U.S., the Major League Soccer action moves just a few weeks from the end of the regular season.
