Feature Matches

The International break wraps up today, with three European Qualification matches.  Our feature match of the day pits the Czech Republic against the Netherlands.  The Czechs are fresh off a defeat against the United States, and will have a serious fight on their hands against the Dutch.  In other European action we have Norway facing Italy, and Andorra clashing with Wales.  Later in the evening we have two Friendlies of note.  First Brazil take on Ecuador at 7pm, and then Mexico face Bolivia live from Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City!

On the weekend we switch gears back to Club football.  Saturday opens with a bang, as Arsenal host Manchester City at the Emirates (5:45am).  This match is followed by six EPL matches, including undefeated Chelsea taking on the undefeated Welsh side Swansea.  The 10:30am match pits Liverpool v Aston Villa, before we move on to the Madrid Derby! Real and Atletico have rekindled their rivalry over the past year, and this match is sure to be a fiery battle.  MLS finishes off the afternoon, with the highlight being a home clash between Colorado and Portland!

Sunday morning Manchester United host London side Queens Park Rangers, before a day of La Liga action.  In the afternoon we turn our attention to the American version of the game, as the Denver Broncos take on their regional rivals, the Kansas City Chiefs!
