Feature Matches

The second leg of the Champions League and Europa League Quarterfinals feature mid week, with some mouth watering clashes on tap! Tuesday Manchester City host Paris St. Germain with a chance at the Champions League Semifinals on the line. The score is 2-2 on aggregate, and if City advance it will be their first ever foray into this level of the competition. In Tuesday's other match, Real Madrid will be trying to dig themselves out of a 2-0 deficit against German side Wolfsburg! Madrid will be at home, but cannot afford to concede a goal, as it would demand at least a four goal performance on their part to advance!

Wednesday's Champions League action has the top two La Liga sides, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, meeting at the Vicente Calderon stadium in Madrid! Barca has seen a recent slip in form, but hold the 2-1 aggregate advantage here. If this match is anything like last week's leg 1 encounter, we are in for some thrilling football! In Wednesday's other Champions League clash Bayern Munchen travel to Portugal to face Benfica! The German Champions only managed a 1-0 at home in the first leg, leaving the door open for the Portugese to pull off what could be a massive upset!

In the Europa League all eyes are on the Liverpool v Borussia Dortmund clash! The aggregate score is 1-1, as this fixture returns to Anfield for the second leg. Whomever advances from this one will be seen as a favorite to win the entire competition, and earn a berth in next year's Champions League tourny!

In addition to Wednesday's Champs League action, West Ham battle Manchester United in an FA Cup Quarterfinal replay! The winner will advance to face Everton in a weeks time. Later in the evening on Wednesday the Colorado Rapids travel to Kansas to face Sporting K.C.! The match kicks off at 6:30pm, and the Pub will be hosting an Away Game Viewing Party!

Weekend EPL highlights include Chelsea v Manchester City Saturday morning, and Leicester City v West Ham on Sunday morning! The Colorado Rapids are back at home on Saturday night to face the New York Red Bulls! This will be Jermaine Jones first ever match representing the Rapids, as the big signings continue to arrive for the Club!

On the Horizon

Next week we feature EPL make up matches in the mid week, including the Merseyside Derby between Liverpool and Everton! On the weekend, highlights include the two FA Cup Semifinals live from Wembley, and the Colorado Rapids have a huge home clash with the Seattle Sounders!
