A season that started off poorly has continued for Liverpool, who sit fourteen points behind first-place Manchester United nine games into the season. First year head coach Brendan Rodgers certainly did not see his tenure starting off this way, as The Reds will play host to Newcastle United, which currently sits in 10th place with thirteen points.
Another club off to a poor start is Palermo, which has just one win on the season, and is currently tied for the final spot in relegation amongst the Serie A standings. In order to begin turning their season around, they will have to be up to the challenge of traveling to Rome to take on AS Roma, which could feature American Michael Bradley in the starting lineup today.
Meanwhile, stateside, the MLS playoffs continue, as two conference semi-final matchups take place. Firstly, Sporting Kansas City will travel to BBVA Compass Stadium to take on the Houston Dynamo. Later tonight, defending MLS Cup champions LA Galaxy will play host to the Supporters’ Shield winners, the San Jose Earthquakes.
