Chelsea – Tottenham headlines This Weekend’s Soccer on TV and Online

2 Shares

The second matchweek of the Premier League season offers a chance for two of England’s most popular teams to size each other up.

Both Chelsea and Tottenham earned predictable wins over Everton and Southampton respectively in last weekend’s campaign openers, but both sides would probably admit Sunday’s contest is a little less straightforward.

2022’s first North London Derby headlines the weekend’s viewing options as the European scene officially comes back to full swing.

If last week’s 6-1 rout of Eintracht Frankfurt was a fair indicator, Bayern Munich is set to be must-see TV this year. Many wondered how the Bavarian giant would look without Robert Lewandowski, and another convincing win over Wolfsburg on Sunday could give credibility for yet another wire-to-wire campaign.

In MLS action, the Seattle Sounders and Real Salt Lake are on opposite ends of what you probably figured in your Western Conference power rankings. Of course, RSL deserves plenty of praise for holding down what looks to be a deserved playoff spot, but there is no denying Sunday’s clash is winnable, and arguably a must-win for the Sounders who are carrying the flag of the first-ever American Concacaf champions, but the losers in six of their last 10 league games.

This weekend’s slate also includes the returns of La Liga, Serie A, and the continuation of the FIFA Women’s U-20 World Cup, making for a loaded list of exciting viewing.

Here is a look at This Weekend’s Top 5 Matches to Watch, as well as a full rundown of This Weekend’s Soccer on TV and Online:


This Weekend’s Top 5 Matches to Watch


  1. Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur – Two teams that you could reasonably be title contenders or a cut below. If there’s a decisive winner, it will be real statement.
  2. Bayern Munich vs Wolfsburg – Last week’s romp garnered plenty of attention, how will Bayern follow through?
  3. Seattle Sounders vs Real Salt Lake – Seattle probably should be in the playoffs, while Real Salt Lake is a candidate to fall out. Sounders fans are hoping to see their side initiate making that happen.
  4. USWNT U20 vs Netherlands U20 – The American youth opened up their World Cup campaign with a 3-0 win over Ghana on Thursday and overall should be able to keep sailing smooth through the group stage.
  5. Angel City vs Chicago Red Stars – Yes, there are La Liga and Serie A openers, but NWSL is in crunch time and Angel City’s flashy start to the campaign has dissipated to the point they’re in a must-win scenario in the final six weeks of the season.

  1. Reyna not in 18 for Dortmund. Another young English winger playing well for Dortmund scoring a goal today. Kim don’t of wonder where Reyna fits in with this current Dortmund team once he is healthy? Is he a sub for Rues? Does he play more at CM? Is he a sub for Malen at LW? I have a feeling this year he will see moe of his minutes as a sub for Dortmund.

  2. The U20 USWNT World Cup game vs the Netherlands should be a good one! After a shaky start yesterday they got their passing in order and looked very good against Ghana. The Netherlands should be a tougher test. They recently played to a 2-2 draw.

    • Also, the following match is against Japan – who won the last U20 World Cup. This group will not be “smooth sailing”. This is a very strong group. Japan scraped by the Netherlands 1-0. If the group play does turn out to be smooth sailing – as Tyler wrote above – it will say a lot about work put in my the team and US Soccer. Women’s soccer around the world has caught up with the US. The nations in this group should not be overlooked – even Ghana. Ghana had as many players playing professionally (in Europe) in their starting line up as the US has (in NWSL) and for the first 20 minutes looked the more threatening due to sloppy passing out of the back by the US. The US scored on its first and only real chance in those 20 minutes. It was a well worked sequence on and a nice cut back and perfect cross from Rouse on the wing that led to the break through for the US who had not dominated play at all up to that point. Then Ghana was awarded a red card in the 31st minute by VAR and the game became a scrimmage for the US as Ghana stopped pressing and sat back. You could say the US should have had more goals. No, this group will not be a breeze.
