There's a variety of (somewhat) interesting football matches this weekend all across the globe. Here are some of the ones you might be interested in:

SATURDAY

* Barcelona vs Malaga | 6:00pm BST, 1:00pm EST | La Liga -- This match is only interesting from a Manchester United perspective for one reason: Cesc Fabre THIAGO! The talented youngster is likely to start -- and if he doesn't, then I doubt any of you will care. (Here's a match preview from Barca Blaugranes)

* Bayern Munich vs VfB Stuttgart | 7:00pm BST, 2:00pm EST | DFB Pokal final -- Bayern tries to join the 1998-99 Manchester United side, amongst others, in immortality by becoming just the seventh side to win a treble. In a piece for ESPN, Miguel Delaney examines how Bayern and each of the treble winning sides stack up against each other.

SUNDAY

* United legends vs Real Madrid legends | 2:30pm BST, 7:30am EST -- Scholes and Zidane and Figo oh my!

* Ireland vs Georgia | 5:30pm BST, 12:30pm EST | International friendly -- I'm not sure why I thought y'all might think this is interesting. Perhaps you're Irish. Even then, you still might not be interested. Shane Long's goal from Seamus Coleman's cross, though, at Wembley was a beauty at the midweek.

* United States vs Germany | 7:30pm BST, 2:30pm EST | International friendly -- The Bayern and Borussia Dortmund crew are excused from this friendly. Still though, the 'B' team Germany is miles ahead of the Americans.

* Brazil vs England | 8:00pm BST, 3:00pm EST | International friendly -- The (sort of) refurbished Maracana is re-opening for this friendly. England could have as little as 14 fit players so expect Michael Carrick, Phil Jones, and Wayne Rooney to be heavily involved. Danny Welbeck is apparently carrying a knock.
