10:00 PM: Real Salt Lake vs. Colorado Rapids, NBCSN
RSL has already won the first two matches between these two rivals, clinching the Rocky Mountain Cup for 2014. But there is a lot at stake here nonetheless. RSL currently leads FC Dallas by a single point as they hope to avoid a one-game play-in match. Colorado, meanwhile, trails the final playoff spot in the west by six points with six matches remaining. A loss here might just kill off their hopes.

It may prove to be a very long season for Harry Redknapp’s QPR, who have already suffered two 4-0 losses. They take on Stoke, who have just four points from their opening four matches.
10:00 AM: Aston Villa vs. Arsenal, NBCSN, Mun2
The Gunners have yet to truly fire this season, though they put in a convincing performance in last week’s 2-2 draw against Manchester City. Villa, meanwhile, have 10 points, and find themselves in second place after a 1-0 win at Anfield.

12:30 PM: West Ham vs. Liverpool, NBC, Mun2
Liverpool had a shaky return to Champions League play in midweek, even if it resulted in three points against Bulgarian side Ludogorets. They’ll be hoping to put in a better performance against West Ham than they did last week against Villa.
2:45 PM: AC Milan vs. Juventus
Milan have had a couple of rough years, but this is still a clash of Italian giants. With any luck, it’ll finish 5-4, like Milan’s last match.

It’s the Cascadia match that may decide the Western Conference playoff race. Portland enters the weekend a single point behind Vancouver for the fifth and final playoff spot.

Seattle comes to New York with a new trophy in tow. Having won the U.S. Open Cup in Philadelphia on Tuesday night, the Sounders will aim to stay on course for the Supporters’ Shield.

11:00 AM: Manchester City vs. Chelsea, NBCSN, Telemundo
Chelsea have been in complete control so far in the Premier League, with four wins from as many matches. City have slipped up, against Stoke and at Arsenal, but they may yet be Chelsea’s stiffest challenge for the title. Both are seeking to bounce back after disappointing performances on Wednesday in the Champions League.
