This is one matchup that doesn’t actively serve any specific demographic or region. All of the ties are available on different television and streaming providers based on the teams involved, and there are a lot of them. The biggest name involved in this stage is a now-Sneijder-less Galatasaray and they struggled in their first leg. There’s an entire list to be sorted through, so get on it now!
After the Netherlands and Denmark won their opening games, the two will face off in a potential group decider in Rotterdam. In the other game, Norway and Belgium will look to salvage their tournament in Breda. These games have been drawing large crowds and are a fun watch.
The third quarterfinal of the competition will see the two countries fight for who plays Mexico or Honduras at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. Both teams will be looking to make a big statement within the confederation.
It’s the Manchester Derby. Well, not quite. Yes, it’s a glorified friendly. However, the two teams will look to keep momentum going as the start of the Premier League season draws closer.
