What are the must-watch games this week?

Real Sociedad vs Barcelona this Sunday at 4 p.m. ET live on beIN Sports

Barcelona are gearing up for a crucial month of football, starting this weekend with their highly-anticipated trip to Real Sociedad in La Liga. Despite crashing out of the UEFA Champions League, the Blaugrana are one of the most in-form clubs in Europe right now and are the only team yet to lose a top-flight fixture in 2021 in Europe's top-five leagues. This unbeaten run will be put to the test in their trip to the Anoeta as they will take on the fifth-placed Txuri-urdin. Messi and Co. have fought their way back into the title race and are only four points behind league leaders Atletico after what has been a tumultuous season. La Pulga will look to inspire his team to another victory as a slip-up, be it a draw or defeat, could be the final blow to Barcelona's La Liga campaign.

Biggest stories of the week

Messi equals Xavi's record in 4-1 league win over Huesca

Lionel Messi starred in Barcelona's weekend triumph over Huesca, scoring an excellent brace and assisting another goal in the Catalan giants' 4-1 win over the relegation-battling side. The Argentine ace broke the deadlock, scoring an exquisite worldie to hand the Camp Nou side a 1-0 lead. Forty minutes later, the six-time Ballon d'Or winner got his second goal contribution, assisting Mingueza for the third of the night courtesy of a pinpoint cross. The Argentine completed his brace in the 90th minute, adding to his lead in the Pichichi race. It was an excellent display in a memorable match for La Pulga as he equaled Xavi's incredible club record. Playing his 767th official game for Barcelona, Lionel moved level with the iconic Spaniard for most appearances in a Blaugrana shirt.

Benfica looking for stadium sponsors; sign deal with American agency to help

Allianz Arena, Allianz Stadium, and Allianz Riviera. What do they all have in common? Well, they're the home bases for Bayern Munich, Juventus, and Nice. And all three teams signed an exclusive deal to sell the naming rights to their stadiums to multi-national corporation Allianz over the past decade, which means an additional source of revenue while promoting the club worldwide.

With that in mind, Portuguese giants Benfica have decided they, too, want to try to follow this model. The Eagles recently signed a two-year deal with WME Sports, which is the sports-related branch of the famous WME (William Morris Endeavor Entertainment) agency that's based in Beverly Hills, California to assist in finding a sponsor. For the Portuguese giants, they're hopeful that this partnership will bear fruit as they look to link up with a company who'd be interested in buying the naming rights to the famed Estádio da Luz.

If all works according to plan, and Benfica are able to pull this off, the 37-time Primeira Liga winners will be the first of Portugal's "Big Three" to have this kind of exclusive sponsorship deal. 

UEFA Champions League: Thomas Tuchel sets new record as Chelsea eliminate Atletico
