On this Soccer Saturday, another English Premier League giant will make a visit to Cardiff City Stadium, a place where it has been tough to get three points so far this season.
First-place Arsenal’s trip to Cardiff City highlights Saturday’s slate of EPL matches. Cardiff City defeated Manchester City at their home stadium earlier this season, and they are fresh off last weekend’s thrilling draw against Manchester United. Arsenal rebounded from their loss to Man United with back-to-back shutout wins against Southampton and Marseille and will look to keep the momentum going after their trip to Wales.
Another Saturday EPL match that fans in the United States will want to keep an eye on is Everton’s home meeting with Stoke City at Goodison Park. USMNT goalkeeper Tim Howard and the Toffees are coming off a 3-3 draw with city rivals Liverpool, while Geoff Cameron and the visiting Potters hope to end their poor run of form away from home in their visit to Merseyside.
The day’s action will kick off in Germany, where Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich aim to keep their impressive unbeaten run in league play against last-place Eintracht Braunschweig at the Allianz Arena. Elsewhere, the high-powered offense of Real Madrid will take on Real Valladolid at the Bernabeu. Saturday’s action will wrap up in Mexico with the second leg of the Liga MX Apetura playoff quarterfinals.
