It's a derby weekend as Juventus and Torino clash on Pararmount+ along with Leeds United hosting Manchester United. It's a weekend more about intriguing matchups than top of the table clashes, but in the Premier League, Manchester City hosting Tottenham is a match that Antonio Conte needs a result in. It's also a rare moment that the rest of the Premier League will root for Tottenham as them winning is the only way for Liverpool to close the gap in the standings below nine points this weekend. The title race feels over in the League but a slip-up by Manchester City could open things back up as Liverpool have a game in hand. 

Here's what we're watching this weekend:

5. Juventus vs. Torino

Date: Friday, Feb. 18 | Time: 2:45 p.m. ET
TV: CBS Sports NetworkLive stream: Paramount+
Caesars Sportsbook Odds: Juventus +175; Daw +280; Torino +550

Why watch: It's derby day as Juventus and Torino square off in the Derby della Mole. Juventus have risen to fourth in Serie A while Torino are in 10th place in the league but Torino will look to end their slide in this Derby match. They've only won one of the last 31 meetings, which was a 2-1 victory in April of 2015. Juventus have hit a new gear since Dusan Vlahovic joined as the Serbian has a goal and an assist in his three games for them so far. He'll look to keep the good run going while Weston McKennie will also want to keep his good form going in this important match.

4. Leeds United vs. Manchester United

Date: Sunday, Feb. 20 | Time: 9 a.m. ET
TV: USA | Live stream: fuboTV (Try for free)  
Caesars Sportsbook Odds: Leeds United +295; Draw +285; Manchester United -116

Why watch: Leeds United will hope that the second iteration of the Roses derby goes better than the first time around this season. Bruno Fernandes hit a hat trick in United's 5-1 victory back in August. Fast forward and while United isn't scoring goals at a high rate under Ralf Rangnick, Leeds United are still conceding a ton. Only Norwich City have let in more goals than Leeds United's 46 as Marcelo Biesla needs Kalvin Phillips back as soon as possible. It won't be a dull match that's for sure.

3. Manchester City vs. Tottenham

Date: Saturday, Feb. 19 | Time: 12:30 p.m. ET
TV: NBC | Live stream: fuboTV (Try for free)  
Caesars Sportsbook Odds: Manchester City -390; Draw +480; Tottenham +1100 

Why watch: Manchester City will want to avenge their opening day loss to Spurs and take advantage of a team that is reeling in the Premier League. Antonio Conte will likely be without Eric Deir for another match which could see this one get ugly. Spurs have conceded nine goals in their last four league matches while City have scored eight in their last four capped off by a 4-0 victory over Norwich City last Saturday.

2. Valencia vs. Barcelona

Date: Sunday, Feb. 20 | Time: 10:15 a.m. ET
Live stream: ESPN+
Caesars Sportsbook Odds: Valencia +265; Draw +265; Barcelona -102

Why watch: Barcelona are waking up from their slumber, having climbed into the top four in La Liga but Valencia are struggling, falling to 12th after not picking up a win in their last six matches. Neither team has been effective on the defensive end which could lead to a shootout but Barcelona should take care of things if they don't receive a red card for the third league match in a row.

1. Inter Milan vs. Sassuolo

Date: Sunday, Feb. 20 | Time: 12 p.m. ET
Live stream: Paramount+  
Caesars Sportsbook Odds: Inter Milan -345; Draw +475; Sassuolo +900

Why watch: Inter can bounce back from their champions league loss to Liverpool as they chase AC Milan for the league lead in Serie A. Sassuolo haven't won in their last four matches but their style matches up well with Inter. If the Neroverdi are able to play on the front foot, bossing possession, there's a chance that they can contain Inter if they don't allow Hakan Calhanoglu to get chances from set plays. Inter will be focused on stopping Domenico Berardi who has scored ten goals and assisted nine more in Serie A this season.
