This Weekend’s Soccer on TV

The Rafa Benitez era begins this weekend for Chelsea against the top team in the Premier League at the moment as the Blues take on Manchester City in the weekend’s marquee match-up.

There is a ton of soccer on tap for the coming holiday weekend, but few matches carry more intrigue than Chelsea-Man City, what with Benitez managing his first match since taking over for fired Chelsea boss Roberto DiMatteo.

In Italy, AC Milan has enjoyed a recent surge and will look to knock off a Juventus side that has shown cracks in their once unbeatable facade in recent weeks.

Here is a rundown of the holiday weekend’s offerings of Soccer on TV:

  1. To the moderator: In light of corrections made to your schedule my 1st comment is no longer useful(except the mention of streaming for Xolos game) and I would prefer both my comments be removed from this thread.

  2. Si Mex matches hoy!

    Mexico LEON-TIJUANA, Semifinal, 1st Leg (live) 10 pm.
    Lo mejor que todo! Vamos TJ!!!!!

    Mexico CLUB AMERICA-TOLUCA, Semifinal, 1st Leg (live) 7:55 pm.

    • Corona & Castillo both start for the Xolos. Corona playing in front of Castillo in a USMNT left side, (though it is Arce on the other side who the offense flows through).
      Corona picked up a yellow earlier in game for a 50-50 tackle in which he lunged in, deserved the yellow.
      Castillo – funny line from the announcer. “It’s as if he doesn’t have a 2nd gear…he goes from 1st to 4th without switching to 2nd and 3rd”1 🙂

      Tijuana seems to be content to play counter in this game, sitting back further than I’ve seen them in the past., They are on the road for this first leg.

  3. trying to be a tottenham fan and not sure if i can do it. they are so incredibly boring to watch. dempsey doesn’t do anything. bale is exciting but has no support. lame.
    i had more fun watching fulham.

    • They are clearly having issues creating (among other problems). Last year I found them exciting to watch and they still have the potential this year – I mean Bale, Lennon, Defoe, etc despite no Modric. They just don’t seem to have all of the right pieces in the formation they are using. I still think part of this is AVB (…not a huge fan).

      I don’t know when Dembele is supposed to come back, but this would be a real improvement. Oh wait, just as I type this, he’s about to come on!

      • adebayor seems really sluggish also. i’ll keep watching, i also like dembele. i hope something starts to click for them. thankfully they have two great keepers.
