Bayern Munchen meet Manchester City in a Friendly Wednesday afternoon to start our game week. Pep Gaurdiola left Bayern for City this Summer, so it will be an interesting way to start his tenure by meeting his old club. Coverage of the International Champions Cup begins this week, with Celtic facing Leicester City Saturday morning! This will be the first chance to put eyes on last year's English Premier League Champions, as they prepare to defend their title. The other ICC match of the weekend takes place Sunday afternoon when Inter meet PSG!
The USWNT have one last Friendly before they head to Brazil for Rio 2016, when they take on Costa Rica on Friday evening at 7pm (MST)! The Lady Yanks are defending Champions, and will be favorites to bring home the Gold in Brazil!
In MLS we have a doozy to look forward to this week! All eyes will be on our Colorado Rapids and FC Dallas as the two best sides in MLS meet at DSG Saturday night! Colorado trail Dallas by three points in the MLS standings, but have played three less matches overall. This will be the quintessential six point match with so much at stake for both sides! To add fuel to the fire, remember when Pablo was sent to L.A., and Oscar Pareja spoke of his love for Colorado and how he would be here for a long time? How times have changed, and how the Rapids have changed. There will be no love lost here, as we get to see these two rivals clash on Saturday night!
On the Horizon
