Copa Libertadores final headlines This Weekend’s Soccer on TV and Online

5 Shares

For the third year in a row, the Copa Libertadores title will be won by a Brazilian club.

In this year’s final, it’s Flamengo vs Athletico Paranaense duking it out for the highest prize South America has to offer. Obviously, 2019 winner Flamengo heads into Sunday’s showdown the much stronger side and the clear favorite. But Athletico and legendary manager Luiz Felipe Scolari were good enough to knock out twice-defending champion Palmeiras.

Of course, MLS semifinal action will be a hot topic here at SBI. Stay tuned for our coverage of LAFC – Austin FC and Philadelphia Union – NYCFC matchups ahead of and on Sunday.

The National Women’s Soccer League is one week ahead of MLS. It’s championship time in Washington D.C. and the Portland Thorns head in to the nation’s capital as the favorites over the Kansas City Current.

As usual, the European docket is a little slow coming in off the UEFA Champions League action, but there is a little drama to be found in Saturday’s Liverpool – Leeds United contest.

Not all that glitters is gold, and Jesse Marsch’s hot start was the talk of the globe at Leeds when the new Premier League season opened and that might be as good as his tenure is going to get. The 48-year-old Wisconsin native heads into Saturday’s match against Liverpool on the hotseat and at an obvious talent deficit.

It would be harsh for the Leeds brass to use it as a judgment day, but an understandable one as their side sits in the drop zone.
