SOCCER ON THE BOX THIS WEEKEND

SOCCER ON THE BOX THIS WEEKEND

Another full slate of eight MLS matches on one day. Who would have thought that back in 1996? Quite a few fascinating fixtures in store for the MLS viewer this week, which is must see TV?

Can Seattle-Columbus be an MLS Cup Preview? Chicago-Chivas and Houston-Kansas City could also be fun.

Virtually every European League is involved in a tight race at the top, there really is no one fixture that stands out above the rest, but for those of you that get Fox Soccer Channel Plus, don’t miss Liverpool-Chelsea on Sunday. Can Liverpool at least play the role of spoiler without bungling it? Man City-Aston Villa could have something to say about the final Champions League spot.

In Mexico, the Playoffs begin this weekend, so… um… yeah, you’re right, just tune in for the Final in a few weeks. No. I kid. Check the Morelia-Chivas for some high-fouling fun and speaking of fouls. Twenty-two year old American Jose Francisco Torres will be on display for Pachuca versus Monterrey. Torres and Pachuca have just won their third CONCACAF Crown in four years. You may as well watch, someone has to and it’s not likely to be Bob Bradley (zing!).
