Arsenal – Manchester United headlines This Weekend’s Soccer on TV and Online

35 Shares

There is a bona fide showdown in London on Sunday, and the entire soccer world will be watching.

Arsenal’s unexpected run at the top of the Premier League table continues to gain credibility week after week. This week presents one of the remaining toss-up games for the Gunners, as red-hot Manchester United rolls through Emirates Stadium.

Though Arsenal’s lead can only be punctured with a loss, a win over Manchester United, which is on a 10-game unbeaten run (winner of nine) in all competitions since the restart is probably the biggest statement any team could make right now.

The return of the German Bundesliga headlines Friday’s schedule with Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig’s first-vs-third battle being about as high stakes as it gets. Munich is on the cusp of doing its usual runaway act but an upset win by Leipzig will make things much more interesting.

The U.S. women’s national team also caps off its two-game series against New Zealand on Friday and did leave room to impress on Tuesday’s 4-0 win. The scoreline surely doesn’t seem like there was much to improve on, but the Americans had fans worried with a slow and scoreless first half that wasn’t quite up to standard.

Six teams are separated by four points in Serie A heading into the weekend, and Sunday’s Juventus – Atalanta tie is bound to shake up Italy’s Champions League picture.

This Weekend’s Top 5 Matches to Watch


  1. Arsenal vs Manchester United – It is possible that Arsenal earns the last bit of cushion it needs to lock up the title here.
  2. RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich – Can Leipzig catch Bayern napping after a long layoff?
  3. New Zealand vs USWNT – It’s crunch time for shaping up the World Cup roster that theoretically has a few spots up for the taking.
  4. Juventus vs Atalanta – Serie A has the closest top-to-bottom race with its contenders and nobody can afford to lose their place in keeping up with Napoli right now.
  5. Liverpool vs Chelsea – Neither is enjoying their Premier League campaigns and if there’s a loser, this one will sting.
