Brazil-Spain Olympic final headlines This Weekend's Soccer on TV

By

The men’s Olympic soccer tournament didn’t have the star power fans would have hoped for before competition began, but two teams that did bring talented squads are set to face off for the gold medal.

Dani Alves and Brazil will face Pedri and Spain in the men’s Olympic final on Saturday morning. Led by the goal-scoring of Everton striker Richarlison, Brazil has rolled through the competition, while Spain has endured a string of close results to reach the final.

The Community Shield serves as the unofficial start of the English soccer season, and reigning Premier League champion Manchester City takes Leicester City to kick things off before league play begins next week.

Here is a rundown of the soccer viewing options on TV and online this weekend, along with the Top Five Matches to Watch:


Top 5 Matches to Watch


1. Brazil vs. Spain Olympic Final. A gold medal is on the line as Pedri and Spain try to upset Dani Alves and the Brazilians.

2. Manchester City vs. Leicester City. Zack Steffen is set to start as City goes for its first trophy of the new season in the Community Shield.

3. New England Revolution vs. Philadelphia Union. Matt Turner and Andre Blake face off once again in this clash of Eastern Conference powers.

4. Colorado Rapids vs. Sporting Kansas City. Kellyn Acosta and the Rapids try to stop the Western Conference-leading Sporting KC.

5. Real Madrid vs. AC Milan. Just a friendly, but it should still be an entertaining match.
