With the European club calendar on hold for European Championship qualifying, the schedule of matches on TV this weekend is dominated by Major League Soccer.

MLS picked a good week to have some very intriguing match-ups. The Los Angeles Galaxy takes on the Chicago Fire in a battle of teams struggling for points, though the Galaxy have a few more in the bank. The Fre needs a win at home to push itself into serious playoff contention, while the Galaxy needs a win to avoid losing its grip on the league's best record.

In Utah, Real Salt Lake will play host to the New York Red Bulls tonight in what should be an entertaining match-up. Both teams are missing key players to international duty (A combined six between them), but there is still enough star power to make this one a thriller.

The Philadelphia Union will kick things off today as Peter Nowak's squad looks to defend PPL Park when it takes on the suddenly hot Kansas City Wizards at 3:30pm.
