Feature Matches

Champions League Group Stage matches feature mid week, with Europa League following up on Thursday. 

Colorado Rapids lead us into the weekend, with a primetime Friday night match (8pm) against Western Conference rivals Portland.  The Rapids are coming off a huge home win against FC Dallas, where they came from behind to secure the three points.  Vicente Sanchez put in an epic performance, creating both of the Rapids goals.  His work ethic, and clever play, have been a massive boost for the Rapids playoff hopes.  Portland is trailing Colorado by two points with a game in hand, so once again this match is pivotal!

Saturday morning we start early, with Norwich facing Aston Villa, followed by four matches at 8am.  Chelsea take on Fulham in a London derby at 10:30am, and the rest of the day is filled with La Liga and MLS action.  The highlight MLS match for Saturday pits the L.A. Galaxy against red hot Seattle at 8:30pm!

Sunday morning we have a terrific lineup of International action, starting with the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Singapore at 6am.  Arsenal face Stoke in the 6:30am slot, along with Crystal Palace v Swansea.  At 9am we have our match of the day with
Manchester City hosting Manchester United in another huge Derby!  The day once again finishes with La Liga and MLS action, as Real Madrid hold the 11am slot, and New York battle our Western Conference rival Dallas at 3pm!

On the Horizon

Mid week we feature the Capital One Cup, including Manchester United v Liverpool on Wednesday afternoon.  Tottenham v Chelsea kicks off our Saturday, and we have the Madrid derby later in the day.  The Rapids have the week off, as they prepare for a visit from Seattle.
