The 2017 Women’s Euro continues in the Netherlands with Sweden coming in as heavy favorites, despite currently sitting in third place. Russia opened up with three points against Italy and go into the second round atop Group B. The tournament is easily available through Watch ESPN and if you’re free, I highly recommend checking it out.
Group B wraps up its second day of play as both Germany and Italy will be looking to make a statement towards qualification from the group after Italy’s defeat and Germany’s draw in each’s first game. Germany go into this one as heavy favorites.
Despite Atlanta’s game in hand, both teams are just separated by one point in the Eastern Conference as Orlando and Atlanta hold the 6th and 4th place spots, respectively. Despite only going 3-3-5 on the road this season, Atlanta holds the 3rd best record in the East in that setting and it will be a firm test against Orlando’s strong 6-3-2 home record (T-3rd). To top it off, ESPN will be carrying this game so it will be more accessible around the world.
The Liga MX Apetura officially kicks off at the Estadio Morelos. This one has rather limited viewing with the USA only receiving this one on FuboTV and Univision Deportes USA, but it’s worth a look to see if you can check out this curtain raiser.
