Feature Matches
Champions League Qualification matches headline both Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. This afternoon Manchester United are away to Belgian side Club Brugge, Lazio face Bayer Leverkusen, and Sporting battle CSKA Moscow! Wednesday it's Celtic from Scotland taking on Malmo of Sweden for a spot in this year's Champions League competition! We finish Wednesday night with some MLS action, and a couple of CONCACAF Champions League fixtures.

The weekend brings us plenty of action from around the world, including nine EPL fixtures on Saturday and Sunday morning, the first Serie A action of the year, Bundesliga, and Championship football. Domestically we have some great MLS fixtures, including our very own Colorado Rapids taking on the Chicago Fire on Saturday night! This is an away match, and the winner can walk away knowing they are not dead last in the league!

We close the weekend on Monday with a huge EPL clash between Arsenal and Liverpool! This is a lunchtime kick off, so get in to work early so you can bail to watch all the drama!
