Mesut Ozil of Arsenal


It might only be Tuesday, but that does not mean that there are no interesting soccer matches to keep you busy.

Arsenal and West Ham United (2:45pm ET, NBC Sports Live Extra) will get things underway on Tuesday afternoon in a Premiership match that should draw plenty of eyeballs stateside. The Gunners currently trail Tim Howard and Everton by two points in the standings, and anything but a victory could spell doom to Arsenal’s chances of reclaiming the UEFA Champions League qualifiers spot that the Toffees currently hold.

Other matches on tap are RSC Anderlecht’s clash with Zulte-Waregem in the Pro League play-offs and Borussia Dortmund’s DFB Pokal semifinals meeting with VfL Wolfsburg (2:30pm ET, ESPN3/Univision Deportes). Sacha Kljestan will try to get on the field for Anderlecht as they try and make a push up the postseason table in Belgium, and Dortmund will hope to be able to pick up a victory at home in an effort to still claim some hardware this season.

At night, Cruz Azul and Toluca will do battle in the opening leg of the CONCACAF Champions League finals (8pm ET, Univision Deportes). Cruz Azul will be at home for this first leg, so they will be looking to grab a victory before traveling to Toluca for next week’s decisive match.
