This Weekend’s Soccer on TV and Online is a heavy international slate, with both the U.S. women’s national team and U.S. men’s national team playing in do-or-die situations.
The U.S. women’s national team’s first game in the Olympics could not have gone worse, falling 3-0 to Sweden on Wednesday and ending its 44-game unbeaten streak.
Even with a shocking loss, there is still a chance to rebound for the USWNT this weekend with a match up on Saturday against a New Zealand team the USWNT are 15-1-1 against in all competitions.
Sunday also features an important match for the U.S. men’s national team against Jamaica in the quarterfinals of the Gold Cup.
This weekend’s slate also heavily involves the Mexican men’s national team as the senior team faces Honduras in the Gold Cup quarterfinals and the Olympic team hopes to continue its strong start against Japan on Sunday.
Elsewhere, there is a strong American contingent starting their club seasons with Mark McKenzie, Brenden Aaronson and Josh Sargent all expected to feature in the opening matches for their clubs.
On Friday Aaronson and Red Bull Salzburg begin their quest to repeat as Austrian Bundesliga Champions against Sturm Grantz and Mark McKenzie kicks off his season with Genk taking on Standard Liege.
For Sargent, Werder Bremen kick off their campaign in the 2 Bundesliga on Saturday against Hannover 96. The 21 year-old American striker has been linked with a move away from Bremen throughout the offseason, but for the time being he is expected to play an important role in their quest for promotion under manager Markus Aufang.
Domestically there is also a 13-game MLS slate over the weekend, with Atlanta United taking on the Columbus Crew as the lone nationally-broadcasted game.

Here are This Weekend’s Top Matches to Watch, along with a look at the full rundown of the soccer viewing options available this week:
This Weekend’s Top 5 Matches to Watch:
- Jamaica vs USMNT – An interesting quarterfinal awaits the U.S. Men’s National Team as they face a Jamaica team with arguably the best player in the Gold Cup in Bayer Leverkusen’s Leon Bailey. The USMNT have the advantage in squad depth, but with defender Walker Zimmerman sidelined and possibly Daryl Dike or Paul Arriola, this will be a tough matchup.
- New Zealand vs USWNT – After a shocking loss against Sweden to open their Olympics campaign, the USWNT must win this match if they are hoping to get out of the group stage and challenge for a medal.
- Mexico vs. Honduras – On paper, Mexico has a good chance to advance to the quarterfinals, but a similar Honduras team gave the USMNT a tough battle in Nations League so do not rule out the upset.
- Mexico Olympic Team vs Japan Olympic Team – Mexico thrashed France 4-1 to open the group stage and their second test comes against Japan.
- Qatar vs El Salvador – Two of the best storylines in the Gold Cup, but only one team will advance to play the winner of Jamaica and USA. Qatar has surprised everyone as a guest invite and manager Hugo Perez has El Salvador playing a strong brand of team soccer.
