This Weekend’s Soccer on TV

Juventus and AC Milan highlight this weekend’s action, with the champions looking to eclipse Roma and go top of the table with a victory on Sunday.

The Old Lady heads into the match in top form with an unbeaten record in league play. Their only slipup came in the form of a 1-1 draw against Inter Milan, which sits just two points below them in the table. Conversely, AC Milan has opened its season in poor form, winning just two of its first six league matches. It doesn’t get any easier this weekend for the Red and Blacks, who will be without the talents of star striker Mario Balotelli due to a red card suspension he received two weeks ago.

On Saturday, Everton will travel to the Etihad Stadium with hopes of continuing its strong start to the Premier League season with three points against Manchester City.

Roberto Martinez’s side heads into the fixture having won nine of its last 12 league meetings against City, losing only twice. Manuel Pellegrini’s side will look to overcome back-to-back losses against Aston Villa and Bayern Munich Saturday morning, and reverse recent history against the Toffees.

    Wow every Sounder game is on Nat TV. I think that is 5 (?) in a row. Playoffs will all be there. I can’t imagine LA-Sea last game of the season doesn’t make it.

    Really gives you an indication of where MLS is for TV contracts. Get a good audience like Seattle, and there is a need to get them on the tube. Nice.
